Each year, the Centre for Academic Language and Development runs several one-week intensive TEAP courses at Senior Fellow, Fellow, and Associate Fellow level.
Due the pressures of the current pandemic, we have had to cancel our 2021 TEAP courses. We have emailed all applicants about refunds. However, if you have not heard from us, please do contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are anticipating the 2022 courses will run in January, April and June. Details will be available soon.
For each course, the group size will be 16 people maximum. We will need a minimum of six people in order to run the course.
We welcome participants from a range of different backgrounds.
Structure and delivery
Our 2022 courses will be online, on campus, or a mixture of both, depending on goverment guidelines. We will confirm this nearer to the time.
The courses will consist of both guided independent study and timetabled online sessions.
The course structure allows for flexibility around work and family commitments. However, participants will need to commit to 40 hours of work, much of it collaborative. This will include attending 15 hours of timetabled online sessions.
There will be no teaching practice. Teaching observation will be done using a video clip.
These courses will not be assessed. Participants will receive a certificate of completion.
How to apply
Application details will be confirmed at a later date.
For off-campus options, accommodation will not be available through the University.
TEAP courses for 2022 will cost £400 each. We won’t ask you to print or buy books.
Due to the pandemic, SOAS now only runs online one-month TEAP courses.

The Certificate in Teaching English for Academic Purposes has been created by Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University to advance the very best practice in EAP in higher education in China and beyond. It is the only qualification of its type in China and is designed for employers to recognise a teacher’s excellence in the field. It is a practical certificate that will have a direct impact on a teacher’s understanding of EAP and their classroom practice.
The CTEAP is not just a training course but is a transformative experience, which encourages teachers to think of themselves and their work differently and to position themselves differently within their places of work.

The MA in Academic Writing Development and Research, along with its associated PgDip and PgCert, will prepare professionals who want to specialise in the support of students and academic staff in writing for assessment or for professional publication. The programme is intended for those working in English-medium institutions or programmes, whether you work in wider contexts where English is a first or additional language. The Master’s and allied programmes will prepare you to help students and staff, whether L1 or L2 English users, write for assessment or for scholarly dissemination.
The Certificate in Academic Writing Development includes modules on teaching and supporting academic writing, supporting writing for professional publication, and writing centre management. It also includes a module that interrogates the dominance of English in scholarly dissemination.
The Master’s and Diploma in Academic Writing Development and Research additionally include modules on writing in the disciplines and research methodologies for investigating academic writing. On the Master’s programme, you will write a dissertation in which you can focus on issues appropriate to your own context.
With an optional four-day face-to-face session each term in Coventry, six online or blended modules, and a dissertation for the Master’s, this programme is ideal for professionals already working in writing support. The course is designed so that you do not have to leave your workplace to pursue your studies, but you can choose to attend the face-to-face sessions and work directly with your colleagues and the lecturers.

The MA in Language Testing is designed to meet the needs of professionals who are involved in language testing and evaluation, including EAP professionals who need to be able to assess EAP learners’ progress and achievements on EAP courses as well as learners’ EAP proficiency. This Masters programme provides you with a solid grounding in language test design, construction and evaluation, and in research design. This ensures that your testing and evaluation practices and the policies you create within your own contexts conform to international standards of validity and reliability.
With a short orientation seminar to launch the course, five online modules, and a dissertation, it is ideal for part-time learning. It offers opportunities to base your coursework and dissertation on issues within your own educational contexts. The course is designed so that you do not have to leave your workplace to pursue your studies.
The Postgraduate Certificate in Language Testing comprises the first three modules of the MA programme. It will appeal to students who want to develop their knowledge and skills in language testing but are perhaps unable to commit to a longer period of study or to a dissertation project. Students who are successful on the PgCert programme can transfer easily to the second year of the MA programme. Graduates holding the PgCert qualification may return later to complete the full MA programme.
