Experiential learning opportunities occur in various ways both within our teacher preparation programmes – either as a compulsory part of a course such as on the PGDE programme, or as a stand-alone credit-bearing component as seen on our UG programmes. They can also be non-credit-bearing experiences beyond the programmes. These learning opportunities may take various forms, including undergraduate research projects, language immersion programmes, exchange studies, service learning projects, and internship opportunities. Students have the chance to undertake experiential learning through extended participation with overseas and/or local community projects, but regardless of where they occur, experiential projects promoted by the Faculty aim at enhancing students’ understanding of real world environments, expanding their capacity to integrate theory and practice, and broadening their global outlook.
