Department of English language Education (Pendidikan Bahasa Inggris-PBI) was established in 1964 under the name of TEN or Tadris English. Because of some controversies in terms of regulation, the department was asked to decease and then reopened in 1980.
PBI is one of the most favorite departments not only within the Faculty of Education but also within Ar-Raniry State Islamic University. This is shown from the rapid development of registration every year, it has more than a thousand students. The majority of students completed their study within expected times, which is 4 years. Most students graduate with high qualification and good merit. A large number of graduates receive job immediately and some of them awarded scholarship, such as LPDP, AAS, NZAID, Fulbright, USAID, LPSDM, DAAD and some other scholarships, to undertake their master’s degree in Australia, the United State of America, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and some other developed countries.
PBI is one of the departments employing teaching staffs, graduating from overseas universities. It has 11 teaching staffs holding a doctorate degree from Australia, Germany, and Malaysia, and has more than 15 teaching staffs graduating from overseas universities. PBI also employs adjunct teaching staffs whose degrees are from different universities in USA, UK, Australia and some other foreign countries.
Last but not least, PBI is proud with its excellent learning services, and I believe being in the Department of English Education is an unforgettable experience for many.
