The Foundation in Arts programme is a specially designed Pre-university programme that allows students to explore a wide range of courses within the social sciences during their foundation year so that they will be better able to make a good decision on what to choose for their Bachelor’s degree.
The Diploma in Early Childhood Education and Bachelor of Early Childhood Education (Hons) provides students with the required knowledge, skills and competencies in teaching young children and helping them to develop holistically. Students will learn how best to design, develop and implement activities that nurture young learners and engage in best practices for teaching and learning in the early years.
The Bachelor of Arts (Hons) TESL programme places a strong emphasis on the key aspects of teaching and learning, classroom management, and the practical knowledge needed to organise and manage curricular and co-curricular activities. In addition, students will learn about the structure, organisation and management of educational Institutions.
For the Bachelor of Corporate Communication (Hons), Bachelor of Mass Communication (Hons) (Journalism) and Bachelor of Mass Communication (Hons) (Advertising) programmes, we provide students with a solid foundation in communication concepts, managerial practices, strategic planning skills, and media handling skills within an organisational context. All Communication programmes include hands-on, minds-on work-related projects that will ensure students are work-ready and possess relevant skills for the industry when they graduate. Students will learn key theories and relevant concepts that cover important aspects of the communication industry in our specially designed framework combining comprehensive curriculum, engaging methodology and student-centred learning.
The Bachelor of Special Needs Education (Hons) prepares students for a career in working with children with special needs. Students will be equipped with relevant competencies that enable them to work with children with special needs as well as provide support to families. A key component of this programme is the Professional Experience placement that offers students the opportunity to gain real-life experiences of working in kindergartens under the guidance of qualified and experienced mentors.
