MDIS School of Languages & Education
The MDIS School of Languages & Education (SLE) offers English language programmes in an enriching learning environment with the aim of equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge to read, write, listen and communicate in English proficiently. SLE has adopted the Teaching Excellence Framework with a focus on Learning Experience, Learning Environment and Learning Outcomes to help students attain the required language skills to confidently navigate the English-medium learning environment.
Students are assessed and placed at the appropriate levels of competency prior to the commencement of their studies. Also, the online English Placement Test introduced for all new international students’ aid in streamlining their English Language proficiency before placement into the respective levels.
Additionally, the School encourages students to be self-directed learners, giving them access to special language classes, individual and group consultations with their teachers, and communication in English with their peers during class discussions and presentations.
The Master of Arts Education Studies by Bangor University, UK, was launched on 28 December 2018, and the first intake targeted at full-time and associate lecturers is slated for May/June 2019. With this initiative, the School of Languages was renamed as the School of Languages & Education effective from 9 January 2019.
