EMI series certificate
EMI Certificate requirements
All graduate students may attend the seminars. Those seeking the Graduate Certificate for English Mediated Instruction must satisfy the following additional requirements. This certificate program is similar to those offered by teaching and learning centers at universities in other countries, such as the US, Canada and Australia. It is not a teaching certificate or teaching endorsement, but a certificate of completion in a CTL program for professional development.
