year Southamp­ton Univer­sity, United King­dom trav­els to Malaysia to pro­mote its busi­ness-re­lated pro­grammes and meet students who have re­ceived of­fers to pur­sue their stud­ies at Southamp­ton Busi­ness School (SBS).

SBS BSc in Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance pro­gramme di­rec­tor Dr Fatimah Zain­udin said: “We of­fer a wide range of pro­grammes on top­ics such as ac­count­ing and fi­nance, dig­i­tal mar­ket­ing, in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship.

“Malaysia tends to be the top coun­try for us to visit as we re­ceived a lot of ap­pli­ca­tions for un­der­grad­u­ate as well as post­grad­u­ate stud­ies.

“Our highly in de­mand BSc in Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance that in­cludes a place­ment year is the most pop­u­lar course amongst our Malaysian students. This is be­cause the course is de­signed in such a way that en­ables students to get max­i­mum ex­emp­tions for pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions af­ter they have grad­u­ated from SBS.”

Fatimah, who is also a lec­turer in Fi­nan­cial Ac­count­ing, said this will be in line with Malaysian gov­ern­ment as­pi­ra­tions in pro­duc­ing 60,000 ac­coun­tants by 2020.

“We also of­fer com­pet­i­tive schol­ar­ships for post­grad­u­ate stud­ies, such as schol­ar­ships of £3000 (RM16,500) and £5000 (RM27,500) for the equiv­a­lent of a 2:1 and 1st class bach­e­lor de­gree.

“This year we are aim­ing to col­lab­o­rate with pri­vate uni­ver­si­ties such as INTI and Help Univer­sity, and gov­ern­ment-linked com­pa­nies such as Te­naga Na­sional Ber­had and Petronas.
