By holding two degrees, graduates will be fully qualified English language teachers, recognized by the Education Bureau as:
- having a language (English) major degree; and
- holding a teacher’s qualification in teaching English.
Graduates will be exempted from the Language Proficiency Requirement for Teachers of English.
Graduates will also be eligible to take up general administrative and executive work in the civil service, non-government organizations, business or industry sectors and other positions for university graduates.
Many opportunities are available for graduates of the programme to undertake postgraduate studies in Hong Kong and overseas. Some students will continue to study for a Master’s degree by course work or by research in areas such as linguistics, applied linguistics, TESOL, translation and journalism.
