Kobe Career Advancement

Kobe City University of Foreign Studies plans to offer masters degree courses for English teachers from next April. Teachers with at least three years of experience will be able to choose from two courses designed for those working at primary or secondary level. Assuming all requirements are met, the minimum required time to acquire the masters degree is just one year, though working teachers will be able to study at weekends and during summer vacations over a period of two to four years. Lecturers will include several native English speakers and a large number of classes will be carried out in English. The course is awaiting education ministry approval, which is expected in November. Details of fees and dates have not yet been released but the courses are expected to be limited to about 10 places. KCUFS web site.
