The co-terminal double degree programme is a five-year full-time undergraduate programme offered by the Faculty of Education, in collaboration with the Department of English and the English Language Teaching Unit of the Faculty of Arts. We aim at nurturing effective and qualified English language teachers for local primary and secondary schools.
The programme focuses on three major disciplines: the study of English language and literature, educational issues, and English language teaching methodology. Students are afforded opportunities to integrate theories and classroom practices in school experiences and teaching practicums in both primary and secondary schools. Students will participate in an 8-week overseas immersion programme with the financial support of the HKSAR Government to further enhance students’ English language proficiency, enrich their understanding of the cultures of English-speaking communities, and expands their experience of overseas educational practices. The two research-based courses embedded in the programme will help students synthesise subject knowledge and independent inquiry, and equip students with informed decisions in their future classroom.
Graduates of the programme will be awarded two degrees: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education, including a recognition as equivalent to a Postgraduate Diploma in Education qualification. They are also considered to have met the HKSAR Government’s Language Proficiency Requirement and exempted from the Language Proficiency Assessment for Teachers of English (LPATE) at Level 3
