The programme develops the intellectual, critical and imaginative abilities of students in relation to Chinese language education. Specifically, it aims to develop students' awareness of and sensitivity to the differences between Chinese and other languages, and the differences between Chinese culture and other cultures. It builds on the diversity of experience that students bring to the course and extends their knowledge of Chinese language, literature and culture to develop their learning and teaching skills, enabling them to develop their careers.
The intended learning outcomes of the MA/PgDTCFL (HKS) are:
This programme is ideal for those who dream of living and working in an intercultural academic environment. Graduates not only promote Chinese in international schools at home and abroad, but also become leaders in building bridges between nations through their professional understanding of languages and cultures. They can therefore significantly contribute to international peace and prosperity.
This programme is included on the Education Bureau (EDB) list of recognised programmes under the Professional Enhancement Grant Scheme for Chinese Teachers (Teaching Chinese as a Second Language).
The EDB offers a basic subsidy of 50% of the tuition fee of a programme of study under the Scheme, subject to maximum of HK$64,000 per student, upon successful completion of the programme without any undertaking.
To encourage more Chinese language teachers who currently teach Chinese to non-Chinese speaking students to apply for the grant and continue to teach in schools offering the local school curriculum after graduation, an extra 30% of the tuition fee of a programme of study, subject to an additional maximum of HK$30,000 per teacher, is offered to those teachers who do so for a total of three years within the five years after they successfully complete the programme.
