Program Description: Lancaster has a world-wide reputation for excellence in language testing. Staff members Tineke Brunfaut, Luke Harding, Judit Kormos, Marije Michel, and honorary members Charles Alderson and Dianne Wall have led and contributed to numerous language testing projects, including national test development projects in many countries and international test development and evaluation projects in English and other languages.

Former Lancaster Language Testing students are now leading test development and research projects in many parts of the world, in Ministries of Education and Defence, curriculum development centres, and universities and other institutions of higher learning, designing and evaluating tests of general language ability and languages for specific purposes.

Our web-based MA in Language Testing is designed so that you do not have to leave your workplace to pursue your studies in Lancaster. It offers you the opportunity for part-time distance learning and for basing your coursework and dissertation on issues and problems in your own educational context.
