TESOL webinar a success

Wed Dec 10 09:39:00 GMT 2014

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences held its first Masters recruitment webinar on Friday 28 November.


Dr Santiago Sanchez, Dr Trevor Grimshaw and Michael Wilson


Dr Trevor Grimshaw from the Department of Education led the webinar, delivering a 30 minute online presentation about the MA Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) programme. Trevor was joined by Dr Santiago Sanchez from the Department and Michael Wilson from the Graduate School Admissions Team, providing expert guidance and advice to current offer-holders, those interested in applying to the programme and international agents.

After the presentation attendees were invited to ask the panel questions about the programme and studying at Bath in a live question and answer session. A variety of questions were raised, from: "how many students go on to study PhDs?", to: "I don’t have much teaching experience, will the programme be too challenging?".

The event attracted attendees from India, China, Italy, Hungary as well as the UK and provided an excellent platform to engage with prospective students.

You can watch the TESOL webinar online.

The Faculty will be running more webinars and live chat events in the New Year for other Masters programmes.
