Department of
Education

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” – John Dewey

Overview

Established in 2005, the Department of Education aims at providing professional training for teachers to serve in Chinese independent schools. Since then, the department has grown and today, it offers a Diploma in Early Childhood Education (ECE), a Diploma in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language (TCSL) and a Bachelor in Early Childhood Education (BECE).


The programme provides students with the opportunity to learn from, and work alongside with, people who are not only very capable lecturers but are also experienced educators themselves. Depending on your interest and career aspirations, the ECE programme will provide you with internship opportunities to equip you with a practical insight of working in the education sector while the TCSL programme focuses on approaches to teaching of the Chinese language.


Both the Diploma Programmes have been approved by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA). Students who are pursuing the TCSL programme are eligible to apply for PTPTN loans. Upon successful completion of the programme, students will be well prepared to start a career in education or work in related fields.
