Nurturing English Teaching Professionals

Enhancing English Language Proficiency

Students have the opportunity to attend an eight- to ten- week overseas language enhancement programme with the financial support of the HKSAR Government. This immersion programme further enhances students’ English language proficiency, enriches their understanding of the cultures of English-speaking communities and expands their experience of overseas educational practices.

Professional Qualifications

Upon fulfilment of all programme requirements, graduates are awarded two degrees—a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a Bachelor of Education (BEd)—which together is recognised as equivalent to Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE); graduates are also exempted from the professional qualification requirements (language proficiency, subject knowledge and pedagogy) for teachers of English in local schools, in accordance with HKSAR Education Bureau stipulations.
