Whether you are a beginner or you have an A Level in Chinese, you’ll find the combination of a foreign language and teaching English a stimulating and career-enhancing degree option. You’ll also gain classroom teaching experience and have the opportunity to achieve an academic and internationally recognised professional qualification. The course develops confidence, organisational, analytical and people skills along with cultural awareness and aims to consolidate and strengthen your existing knowledge of grammar and expression.
Graduates of the course have followed careers in teaching, education management, publishing, the civil service, translating and interpreting while others have followed further postgraduate studies. Many graduates are working abroad. Take, for example, Asif Pandor who gained employment immediately after graduating and is now working as an English language instructor in Jeddah with the General Authority of Civil Aviation's Training Academy.
