Assalamualaikum dan selamat sejahtera...
Referring to my previous post(my ancient post) : Apa itu TESL? back on 2011.
So, what should we do after we've finished the foundation year? the next step is to apply for degree. You could do so when the application is open. And yes, you can apply for any courses that you desire or interested in except for Science field ( obviously la cannot because you were from TESL foundation). So far, non of my friends further in any science programme. Now, read carefully. If you would like to further degree in TESL and other pendidikan programme, you must sit for MEDSI written test. After you've success you'll be called for the interview. Then, wait for any offer. Usually, most of the students apply to further degree by UPU. If you want to apply for USM and UM you have to buy the pin number particularly for these universities. You can also further in other IPTS's, IF and only if in the requirement stated that they accept application from foundation students. Because I am not really sure how is the procedure of IPTS's. Then, after the application you wait la.. hee.
After the nerve wrecking waiting, I DID NOT get the offer to further degree in TESL.. It was sad. I know I did not get the chance to further TESL when no notification asking me to attend the interview after the MEDSI's written test.haha. The test is actually a personality test. So, I believe that I don't have the criteria of an educator... Sad. There goes my dream.. Pasrah je lah.
But, I got offer from UPM in Bachelor of Arts(English Language) in Malay Bacelor Sastera (Bahasa Inggeris). It is NOT TESL. Not from pendidikan field. Put it in simpler term : Linguistics. I don't know how to elaborate the difference from TESL but obviously it is not from the pendidikan field. But for those who are interested to be a teacher or an educator,you can. further for any pendidikan programme after the completion of this programme.
I cried after I got this offer. I am dying to further in UiTM because of the cheaper fee. And it feels familiar because I've experienced UiTM's environment. So, with this heavy heart I register as UPM's student. It was difficult for me because I never expected or planned to be here. Furthermore, there were persons who meant so much to me in the foundation year were not here together with me. they got different offer. Huuuu...... But, still there were friends from TESL foundation furthering this programme.
Okay, let's postpone for now. I'll update again, InsyaAllah. hee
