In reference to the Indonesian Qualification Framework (IQF) 2012, the curriculum of the ELT-UM is oriented to preparing prospective English teachers for formal and non-formal institutions with an English proficiency equal to B2 level of CEFR (Common European Framework of Languages), or a minimum of ITP TOEFL score of 525 / iBT TOEFL 69-70 / IELTS 5.5. At this level of proficiency, graduates of the program could demonstrate the following English language competences, which are required of them to become competent English teachers.

Can understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation. Can interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party. Can produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options. (Council of Europe, 2018)

For graduates of the ELT-UM who become English teachers at formal schools, they are eligible to enroll in the one-year PPG for English teachers in order to get certified and receive professional incentives. In addition, although the curriculum is oriented toward preparing prospective teachers, the knowledge and skills developed throughout the program also enable the graduates to embrace non-teaching professions, such as, translators, entrepreneurs, company staff, journalists, and many others.
