New Straits Times - - News -

THOSE aspir­ing to be­come doc­tors have an al­ter­na­tive and a more ef­fi­cient route to med­i­cal school by tak­ing the foun­da­tion cer­tifi­cate at New­cas­tle Univer­sity Medicine Malaysia (NUMed).

Based in Malaysia at New­cas­tle Univer­sity’s med­i­cal cam­pus NUMed in Jo­hor, the Foun­da­tion Cer­tifi­cate in Bi­o­log­i­cal and Bio­med­i­cal Sci­ence is a 12-month course that you take in­stead of your fi­nal year of Alevels.

If you meet the tai­lored course’s re­quire­ments, there is an added bonus of be­ing able to se­cure a place at NUMed.

As op­posed to A-lev­els, the course will pre­pare you to study medicine or bio­med­i­cine at the univer­sity with tai­lored mod­ules, such as the “Foun­da­tion of Med­i­cal Stud­ies” pro­gramme, and hands-on classes such as “An In­tro­duc­tion to Anatomy”, giv­ing you the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence life as a med­i­cal stu­dent.

You will also be taught Physics, Chem­istry, Bi­ol­ogy, Maths, Sci­ence and En­gi­neer­ing, English and Med­i­cal Stud­ies as these sub­jects are vi­tal in the field of medicine.

NUMed’s Foun­da­tion Cer­tifi­cate will give you the op­por­tu­nity to learn about all the cour­ses on of­fer such as the MBBS and BSc (Hons) Bio­med­i­cal Sci­ence pro­grammes.

On cam­pus, you will be in­te­grated with stu­dents who are al­ready on the pro­grammes, and you will be taught by the lec­tur­ers of those cour­ses.

Why study the Foun­da­tion Cer­tifi­cate? World class ed­u­ca­tion: NUMed is 100 per cent owned by the lead­ing United King­dom (UK) Univer­sity, New­cas­tle Univer­sity.

The foun­da­tion cer­tifi­cate just like our MBBS and BSc (Hons) Bio­med­i­cal Sciences Pro­grammes is con­ferred by New­cas­tle Univer­sity UK.

New­cas­tle Univer­sity, part of the UK Rus­sell Group, has more than 175 years of his­tory and a world-class rep­u­ta­tion for re­search ex­cel­lence, so you can be certain that you will re­ceive an ex­cel­lent ed­u­ca­tion dur­ing your time with us.

Path­way to a med­i­cal or bio­med­i­cal de­gree: If you suc­cess­fully com­pleted the Foun­da­tion Cer­tifi­cate to the re­quired level, you will be of­fered a place in one of our

MAY 21, 2017 med­i­cal de­grees.

This means that you will not be com­pet­ing for places on those pro­grammes.

Same qual­ity, frac­tion of the cost: Study­ing NUMed’s Foun­da­tion Cer­tifi­cate in Bi­o­log­i­cal and Bio­med­i­cal Sciences means that you are get­ting the same qual­ity of tu­ition as study­ing at the UK cam­pus, but at a frac­tion of the cost.

State-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties: Health Min­istry di­rec­tor-gen­eral Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Ab­dul­lah said we have un­par­al­leled med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties in our cam­pus. NUMed is one of the best med­i­cal schools in Malaysia.

Un­beat­able ac­com­mo­da­tion: You could be liv­ing in mod­ern self-cater­ing apart­ments, com­plete with your own bed­room that shares a cen­tral kitchen, liv­ing area, and bath­room with fel­low stu­dents.

You would also have ac­cess to free wire­less In­ter­net, a 24-hour gated se­cu­rity, swim­ming pool and a gym.

All of these are just a 10-minute drive to cam­pus with free, reg­u­lar trans­port to the cam­pus and sur­round­ing ar­eas.

What else you can do?: NUMed is lo­cated in Iskan­dar Pu­teri (for­merly known as Nusa­jaya) in Jo­hor.

We are a thriv­ing univer­sity hub with UK’s Univer­sity of Southamp­ton and Univer­sity of Read­ing branches next door.

The EduCity Sports com­plex, with an out­door and in­door arena, sports fields, 50 me­tres swim­ming pool and gym, is also just around the cor­ner.

In cam­pus, you will find a dance stu­dio, games room, pool ta­ble and widescreen tele­vi­sion com­plete with Astro sub­scrip­tion.

There are also many so­ci­eties and or­gan­i­sa­tions to cater to any pas­sion or in­ter­est.

Ex­cel­lent stu­dent sup­port: You will be sup­ported through­out your univer­sity life from first ap­pli­ca­tion to grad­u­a­tion.

You will be as­signed a per­sonal tu­tor to guide you through­out your stud­ies and we of­fer study skills, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, and well-be­ing sup­port dur­ing your time with us.

Re­gard­less of the sup­port you need, we are here to help.

If you are think­ing of em­bark­ing on a lifechang­ing ca­reer in medicine, we want to help you suc­ceed by of­fer­ing you a world-class med­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion.
