TEFL Launches Degree in Teaching with Sikkim Manipal University
A solution for all wannabe non-degree teachers
With both the Thai Government and most schools insisting on a degree as the minimum qualification for a teacher, TEFL International in association with Sikkim Manipal University has launched a unique Bachelor of Science in Language Teaching (BScLT) degree course. This course not offers a graduate degree but also develops the skills of language teaching equivalent to the TEFL or TESOL program. So with one course the students will cover two most important qualifications of an English language teacher – a degree and TEFL training.
TEFL International is the largest teacher training organisation in the world and its TESOL course is recognised worldwide, while Sikkim Manipal University or ‘SMU’, is incorporated under the State Legislative Act of the Government of Sikkim. It is recognized by the Ministry of Human Resource Development - Government of India.
SMU's Degrees/ Diplomas/Certificates are recognized by all members of the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and are at par with Degrees / Diplomas / Certificates of all Indian Universities/Deemed Universities/Institutions.
The Course, Bachelor of Science in Language Teaching, is designed for those who have successfully completed 12 years of schooling (10 + 2 pattern) or equivalent as defined by the local Government.
The three-year degree course is a combined course on English Language, Literature and a teaching degree. Distributed across 6 semesters, B.Sc.LT is a comprehensive program of Grammar, Literature, Communication skills, philosophy, psychology, economy, education, school management and practically all those significant aspects that a teacher needs to consider and develop as a complete professional. A student can take up to maximum of 6 years to complete the course.
This Degree course has flexibility of not only studying online but also phasing the study. The student can study from home and at his own pace. At the same time the student can choose to earn a 2-year Diploma qualification on completing Semester I – IV in case he/ she has to opt out midway through the course.
A successful conclusion of Semester 5 & 6 makes the student eligible for the final certification. The exit qualification here is the degree of BscLT.
Each semester carry 16 credits which add to 96 credits for the entire course of 6 semesters.
