This course is ideally suited for the professional development of English language teaching professionals. Most of our students study this course in order to move their careers forward toward more senior teaching roles.
Amy Brown decided to study the course in order to move her career forward after teaching English in Japan for a number of years. She chose UNNC as it offered her the chance to get an internationally recognised degree and to live in China.
She said: 'The modules on offer are interesting, lectures are thought-provoking, and the teaching staff are approachable and friendly. All this is achieved in the unique environment of a truly international university, with staff and students from many different countries who all bring with them different teaching and learning experiences. There are lots of opportunities for meaningful class discussions about language and how it is taught.
'I had the chance to put what I learned on the course into practice by participating in volunteer teaching activities and there were numerous opportunities for me to learn Mandarin, see some of the exciting sights China has to offer, and make some great friends at the same time.
'I am looking forward to the windows of opportunity it will open for me in the future.'
