Quest International University Perak’s Bachelor of Arts (Hons) TESL programme is a 3½ year undergraduate programme.  Throughout the duration of the programme, strong emphasis is placed on the key aspects of teaching and learning, classroom management, and the practical knowledge needed to organise and manage curricular and co-curricular activities. Students will also gain a good understanding of the structure, organisation and management of educational institutions. Faculty members also optimise the use of technology to transform teaching and learning, thereby creating immersive and inclusive experiences which inspire lifelong learning, and help stimulate the development of essential life skills. Additionally, the programme is unique in that other than the conventional professional experience placement in secondary schools, students may also be attached to organisations such as hotels and other industries, to improve the English language proficiency of the staff.

 

Individuals who graduate with BA (Hons) TESL can pursue teaching careers in national schools, private schools and other institutions of learning in Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and other Asean countries. The programme can also open career pathways in national and multinational companies that employ personnel who are proficient in the English Language particularly in Public Relations, Human Resource, Editing, Writing, Journalism, Advertising Industry, etc. The prospects are good for graduates to be employed locally or internationally.
