College Affiliation: Linacre College

Heath Rose is an Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics, who specialises in language teaching research. He is the course leader for the MSc/PGDip in Teaching English Language in University Settings and the MSc/PGDip in Applied Linguistics for Language Teaching.

After completing a PGCE in 1997, Heath started his teaching career in Australian and Japanese schools. He eventually moved into teaching in higher education, while completing a Masters and PhD in Education from The University of Sydney. Before coming to Oxford, Heath oversaw the M.Phil. in English Language Teaching at Trinity College Dublin, and was Director of the Centre of English Language Learning and Teaching.

Heath’s interests are firmly situated within the field of Second Language Teaching and Learning. His research has included self-regulation and language learner strategies, Global Englishes, teaching English as an international language, and English Medium Instruction. Publications include a number of books on Global Englishes, including Introducing Global Englishes (Routledge) and Global Englishes for Language Teaching (Cambridge) in addition to books on research methods and Japanese language learning.

He has published numerous research articles related to applied linguistics in journals such as Higher Education, Language Policy, Applied Linguistics, ELT Journal, and Modern Language Journal. Heath is the current coordinator of the English Medium Instruction Research Group, and runs the wider EMI Oxford Research Network.
