PCIE 5 Levels

School of Languages

The School of Languages offers English Language programmes for those who are interested in pursuing a tertiary education in the English medium. Upon completion of the Advanced Level, students are awarded the Professional Certificate in English (PCIE). The school aims to place students at an adequate proficiency level and develop students' confidence in using the language for daily communication and academic work.

In 2009, the school hosted Mr and Ms Personality Contest and an Adventure Camp, events which were well received by the students. Experiential learning journeys have been designed to keep the language learning relevant and interactive. The school advocates the notion that teachers not only transmit knowledge but become a catalyst to empower students to handle the challenges of the curriculum, their chosen professional field and even their own life - without the aid of the teacher. Through such empowerment, the School of Languages hopes to create a paradigm shift in the students' quest for knowledge from a receiver to a creator of knowledge.
