Best Masters in Languages in Malaysia 2017. The overall agenda is one of access to higher education. The provision of this programme offers students an opportunity to complete higher education in Malaysia. It also complements the national and social objectives of upgrading professionals who are engaged in ESL teaching of our nation's youth. It has been expressly stated by the Malaysian government that there is an acute short supply of qualified committed ESL teachers in many schools. This programme supports the overall societal and national needs of building a knowledge-based society and supports national human capital development needs. It also complements the ESL teaching programmes in HU's Dept of English. Specifically, the MEd TESL programme aims to transform the thinking regarding principles, approaches, and methodologies of more effective delivery in language classrooms in Malaysian schools. In order to attract not just local students but also those from ASEAN, Asia-Pacific region and beyond, the programme provides affordability and flexibility in terms of its modular structure to cater for busy adults engaged in work and personal commitments. At the institution's level, this is a Graduate level programme (MQF Level 7). As indicated below, this fits within the general picture of HU offering programmes at the pre-university, undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuous professional development (CPD) levels. HELP Master of Education (TESL) is designed to train graduates who do not have a teaching qualification but aspire to become English teaching professionals with the necessary knowledge and skills needed to effectively teach English as a Second Language. Students will be equipped with excellent skills and capabilities for professional employment in the field. In MEd (TESL), as opposed to a Bachelor degree (TESL), students are asked to do action research as projects in each course. The studies are more in-depth, and require more critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Students are encouraged to apply what they learn in their daily teaching and reflect on methodologies.
