Students at SEHS programme preview offered fee incentives

The online preview of the Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE) and the Master of Education (MEd) programmes held today extended incentives to the attendees and members of Persatuan Guru Tadika Malaysia (PGTM ) if they enrol with WOU.

Both programmes are fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

Ipoh Regional Centre Director Ching Huey Ling told the interested learners that if they were to successfully enrol before 30 September for the September 2020 intake, or the January 2021 intake, they can lock in their fees to avoid any future fee revisions.

CHING SHARES THE GOOD NEWS ABOUT THE PROMOTIONS FROM WOU.

She also mentioned the discounted tuition fees of RM9,600 to pursue the DECE and less than RM20,000 for the MEd degree at WOU. Learners are also entitled to a RM500 computer subsidy to buy a laptop or purchase a data plan as part of the University’s effort to facilitate online learning. In addition, the new students of DECE with a monthly income of RM4,500 and below will receive a one-off bursary award worth RM500.

Earlier during the session, Prof Dr Anna Christina Abdullah from the School of Education, Humanities and Social Sciences (SEHS), elaborated that WOU had launched the DECE programme in January 2017 to help the Ministry of Higher Education meet its target for certified Early Childhood Education (ECE) teachers by 2020.

PROF ANNA EXPLAINS ABOUT THE DECE PROGRAMME FOR PRESCHOOL TEACHING.

The DECE is a 90-credit programme that comprises of 29 courses, including a 7-credit Teaching Practicum, she added. There are currently 300 active students for the programme, and they will take 8-11 semesters to complete their studies.

SEHS Lecturer Dr Christine PorFei Ping shared that the 46-credit Master of Education programme comprises of five core courses (25 credits), three specialised courses (15 credits), and a 6-credit research project. Students can complete their degree over 4-5 semesters or within 2 years, or they can choose to stretch it up to five years.

DR POR IS THE COORDINATOR FOR THE MED PROGRAMME.

She highlighted that WOU offers the MEd in three fields of specialisation, namely Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL), Educational Management and e-Learning. WOU aims to launch a new MEd specialisation in Early Childhood Education by 2021, she stated.

THE ONLINE PROGRAMME PREVIEW SESSION IN PROGRESS.

SEHS Senior Lecturer Sean Ooi Li Hsien talked about the Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL), whereby learners getting course exemptions to graduate faster with APEL if they have the related work experience in education.

During Q&A, there were queries on the academic and work requirements for entry into the MEd programme, how students can lock in their tuition fees at the current rate, and when the timetables are made available by the Schools.

The session streamed live on Zoom was attended by 98 participants, including members of PGTM.
