Trinity Western University

Graduate Program Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (M.A .)


The following are typically required for entrance to either program:

  • A bachelor’s degree;
  • A TESL certificate, similar to the one offered by TWU, is highly recommended; and,
  • Teaching experience (one to two years). The teaching experience may be waived in the RMT.
  • An EILTS score of 7.5 on all bands (for non-native English speakers)

Other factors which may enhance a candidate’s application include extensive teaching experience, other languages studied, and a strong rationale for entering the program. If necessary, students lacking some of this background may be allowed to take certificate level courses, such as Phonetics, English Grammar, and Introduction to TESL, prior to entering.
