    * Students who have not studied developmental psychology at sub-degree level are required to take an additional 5-credit psychology course with an additional fee.

    Students whose mother tongue is not Chinese or whose secondary school education was completed overseas or in International Schools do not need to meet the Chinese language requirement.


    The double degree programme aims to develop a good understanding of the structure, use and learning of the English language, and the sound professional knowledge and skills required of an English language teacher. With these two degrees, graduates will be recognized by the Education Bureau as having a language (English) major degree and teacher qualification.
