Short Description

This 5-year co-terminal double-degree programme offered by the Faculty integrates academic and professional training over the course of five years, and prepares students to become professional Chinese language teachers. The courses offered by the Department of Chinese Language and Literature enrich students’ knowledge of Chinese language and literature, while the educational studies courses offered by the Faculty of Education develop their pedagogical content knowledge, teaching skills and ability to conduct educational research. The programme also includes school experience and teaching practice in local schools to ensure that students are able to put theories into practice.

Students also have the opportunity to join an eight- to ten-week overseas language immersion programme. Partially subsidised by the HKSAR Government, this immersion programme helps students improve their Chinese language proficiency, sample Chinese culture and expand their experience of overseas educational practices.

Upon fulfilment of the programme requirements, students are simultaneously awarded two degrees—a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a Bachelor of Education (BEd)—which together is recognised as equivalent to a Postgraduate Diploma in Education (PGDE), ensuring that students meet the professional requirements needed to obtain qualified teacher status. Graduates of the programme are fully qualified to teach Chinese in local primary and secondary schools.
