Director’s Message


Welcome to the MA  in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) program at Bilkent University.  

The program is designed to provide a platform for experienced language teachers to further their expertise, career and research orientation primarily in higher education settings. To this end, the program offers a rigorous challenging curriculum, providing a broad range of coursework, blending theoretical and practical pathways guided by the latest research based insights. 

The program also requires participants to critically reflect on, and rethink, their knowledge, experience, and current issues on an ongoing basis. 

Participants are deeply immersed in latest developments in education, language teaching  and research in a collegial and intellectually stimulating environment. 

I hope you will join us in our pursuit of professional and scholarly excellence. 

Best wishes,
