MSc Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)
I had worked four years before I came to Stirling. At that time, I just felt a bit confused, and didn’t know what I can do in the future. So I decided to take a break and pursue my study career. As I worked in educational press publishing English textbooks, I chose the TESOL programme for my Masters.
When I was researching my Masters degree, I learned that education in Stirling has great reputation, and the University of Stirling campus is the most beautiful. I studied for MSc TESOL which is a one-year programme and every day in Stirling was memorable, honestly. I always walked to the campus to take lessons and do my research. I hope the current students of Stirling have clear goals. What’s more, I hope that they do treasure every moment in Stirling as study time is short. I’d recommend that you open your hearts and communicate with the locals to learn about the local culture, which would be valuable treasure of your life.
I graduated in 2015 and currently I work in Higher English Education Publishing Division, Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press. I’m the Deputy Director of College English Publishing Department. All I learned in Stirling is relevant to my current job which is about designing English textbook for Chinese university students. The main challenges of my job is that when we design a new series of textbooks, innovation and creativity are needed. We utilise up-to-date language, teaching pedagogy and research results into the textbooks design.
