The programme aims to achieve a tripartite objective, namely: to enable students to become lifelong learners with a special focus on the English language; to provide an opportunity for students’ whole-person development; and to enable students to acquire skills and knowledge appropriate to a variety of career pathways. In addition, on account of our close partnership with an overseas university, the Department of English helps students develop an international dimension in their academic and professional pursuits.
