Open University Malaysia partners IIHS to offer int’l degree in education

The Open University of Malaysia has partnered with IIHS to offer Bachelors in Education (TESL), Bachelors in Teaching and Bachelors in Early Childhood Education (Hons.) degrees to students who have completed their Advanced Levels and also the existing teachers of Sri Lanka.

The Bachelors in Education (TESL) degree is a 3 year internationally recognized degree which is offered by the Open University Malaysia, but the program is conducted at IIHS, Sri Lanka. (1 year exemptions apply for certain applicants with recognized teaching diplomas).

The aim of this program is to promote the academic and career development of teachers, educators, principals of schools and others in the field of education, especially to those who teach English as a second language. The program would ensure students are equipped with adequate knowledge of methodology of teaching English. Whilst addressing the core subjects related to education, the program further addresses research modules which add value to the learning experience at IIHS.

Whilst providing an employment opportunity in Sri Lanka, the degree also increases openings for employability as a teacher in Commonwealth countries too. Furthermore, students are provided with the option of visiting the Open University Malaysia for study visits. Currently, this program is one of the very few international education programs in Sri Lanka which is offered to students at a nominal price.

The Bachelors in Teaching program aims to produce graduates who have wide education knowledge and skills to function as effective teachers, education officers or college lecturers specializing in primary education. The Bachelors in Early Childhood Education (Hons.) program is designed to meet the needs of those interested in pursuing careers in early childhood education and who are currently (or in the future hope to be) employed in pre-schools. Entry requirements for all bachelors programs in education include GCE Advanced Level or IIHS Foundation in Education or HNDE (Higher National Diploma in English) or a Diploma in English obtained from a recognized institution. This program is ideal for students of all ages and backgrounds, even mature students who were not able to complete their higher education due to personal commitments. The above mentioned international programs are affordable in nature compared to similar international programs. Furthermore, students who complete the bachelors programs would have the opportunity to complete a Master’s In Education in Australia and Europe.
