What Our Alumni Say

Angela Yang

"Studying a Masters of Education (TESOL) has not only given me the opportunity to enhance my professional skills but also to learn from leading academics in the field. I also formed valuable connections with my peers who work in the same industry. The capstone project at the end of the program is also an excellent opportunity for students to choose an area of interest and conduct their own research which really provides a hands-on experience."
