Aim
The main purpose of the M.Ed. in TEFIL is to provide specialised knowledge and skills to university graduates in the field of teaching English as a foreign/international language. It follows the specifications and requirements of state-of-the-art educational science and responds to the needs of the teaching market in Greece and internationally. The language of instruction of the M.Ed. is English.

Programme Scope
The M.Ed. in TEFIL is addressed at anyone interested in pursuing postgraduate studies in the domain of teaching English as a foreign language and, in addition, integrates the emerging dimension of English as an international language of communication. In particular, the M.Ed. in TEFIL integrates all aspects of English language teaching, from the teaching of the “four skills” (i.e., the production and perception of spoken and written language), the design, development and evaluation of curricula and courseware, the testing and assessment of the language skills, the integration of educational technology, the integration of intercultural approaches to teaching, the teaching English to children and adults, teacher education and training, to addressing learning difficulties. The distance learning methodology adopted in the M.Ed. in TEFIL, in conjunction with the support provided by the tutors, who act as mentors, enables teachers to attend the M.Ed. without leaving their classes and learners. This is achieved through innovative distance learning activities that prompt teachers to apply what they study in actual practice, by designing, teaching and evaluating original lessons, thereby experimenting with and deeply understanding education in all its complexity.

If there is no certification or recognition body in the country concerned, a certificate from the relevant Ministry or Embassy of Greece is required, confirming that the certificates issued by the above bodies to third parties for whom English is not a native language are accepted in public services of that country as valid evidence of English at the appropriate level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

General notes:

  • Advanced level foreign language certificates also prove knowledge of a lower (required) level of the foreign language.
  • Foreign Language Teaching Certification does not prove the competence in a foreign language. In order to prove their competence in the foreign language, candidates who hold the relevant certification must provide the foreign language certificates as provided for in this Annex where applicable
  • All foreign language degrees must be accompanied by their official translation into the Greek language, except the above English language proficiency certificates, which are accepted without requiring any translation and validation.
