The Hornby scholarship provides English language specialists the opportunity to study a one year Master's program in an English Language Teaching (ELT) related subject at a university in the United Kingdom. This year, the British council is looking to for two candidates to participate in the MA programme. The candidates will be placed in one of these institutes - University of Lancaster, Leeds, University College Plymouth, St Mark and St John (Marjon) or University of Warwick.

Have at least 5 years' hands-on and direct experience as an English language teacher/teacher trainer (as opposed to experience only in a management role, such as co-ordinating policy or running a school). Have been involved in some sort of developmental work as trainers or managers. Have attained an overall minimum Band score 6.5 on the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS), with no less than 6 in any of the categories. Only applications for full time UK based ELT Diploma or Masters courses are eligible for Hornby Trust funding.
