New Straits Times - - News -

AS one of the most es­tab­lished higher ed­u­ca­tion providers in Malaysia, SEGi Univer­sity & Colleges of­fers more than just ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.

HUM­BLE BE­GIN­NINGS

SEGi Univer­sity & Colleges was es­tab­lished in 1977 as Sys­tem­atic Col­lege in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, of­fer­ing pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

Since its found­ing four decades ago, SEGi has un­der­gone sig­nif­i­cant growth, strength­en­ing the qual­ity of its wide range of pro­grammes from cer­tifi­cate, diploma and foun­da­tion stud­ies up to doc­tor­ate level.

It is one of the most es­tab­lished pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia, with its flag­ship cam­pus in Kota Da­mansara, and four other cam­puses in Subang Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Pe­nang and Kuching.

SEGi un­der­stands the im­por­tance of a great learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­vides fullfledged fa­cil­i­ties and ameni­ties, which in­clude, but not lim­ited to, mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary lab­o­ra­to­ries to fa­cil­i­tate stu­dents in con­duct­ing ex­per­i­ments, full-func­tion­ing kitchens and a mock res­tau­rant mod­elled af­ter fives­tar ho­tels, well-stocked li­braries, SEGi Eye­Care and SEGi Oral Health Cen­tre.

WIDEST RANGE OF QUAL­ITY COUR­SES Pro­grammes of­fered at SEGi Univer­sity & Colleges are metic­u­lously planned and are of equiv­a­lent to that of pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional uni­ver­si­ties.

This is made pos­si­ble through close col­lab­o­ra­tions with a con­sor­tium of global part­ners that con­sists of the Univer­sity of South­ern Queens­land in Aus­tralia; Univer­sity of Sun­der­land, Univer­sity of Green­wich, Keele Univer­sity and Aber­tay Univer­sity in the United Kingdom; as well as Troy Univer­sity in the United States.

SEGi is one of the most com­pre­hen­sive higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia, of­fer­ing cour­ses in sci­ence, tech­nol­ogy, cre­ative and other non-tech­ni­cal pro­grammes, such as Health Sciences (Medicine, Op­tom­e­try, Den­tal Surgery, Phar­macy and Bio­med­i­cal Sci­ence), Al­lied Health Sciences (Nurs­ing, Med­i­cal Lab­o­ra­tory Tech­nol­ogy, En­vi­ron­men­tal Health, Health­care Man­age­ment, Oc­cu­pa­tional Safety and Health), Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stud­ies, Cre­ative Arts and De­sign, Early Child­hood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion, En­gi­neer­ing and the Built En­vi­ron­ment, Hos­pi­tal­ity and Tourism, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Law, Ps­cy­hol­ogy, Amer­i­can De­gree Pro­gramme (ADP) and Pre-Univer­sity Stud­ies.

A DIF­FER­ENT KIND OF ED­U­CA­TION AND EX­PE­RI­ENCE

What sets SEGi apart from other in­sti­tu­tions is its ded­i­ca­tion to pro­duc­ing in-de­mand grad­u­ates by pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to boost stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence through its en­rich­ment pro­gramme.

There are more than 100 work­shops and sem­i­nars un­der the pro­gramme to pre­pare stu­dents be­yond the class­room, in­clud­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion and groom­ing skills, among oth­ers.

VI­BRANT STU­DENT LIFE

On cam­pus, aca­demic life is com­ple­mented by a vi­brant stu­dent’s life. This goes in line with SEGi’s be­lief that learn­ing should hap­pen be­yond the cur­ricu­lum. It pro­vides ex­po­sure for stu­dents to try some­thing new — to de­velop new skills, meet new peo­ple and also pur­sue their hob­bies, and such is the case for Ja­zlin Zakri.

The Year 1 stu­dent in Bach­e­lor of Arts (Hons) in English and Pub­lic Re­la­tions had re­cently par­tic­i­pated in SEGi’s an­nual singing com­pe­ti­tion, SEGi Idol 2017. Aca­dem­i­cally, Ja­zlin de­scribed her learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as eye-open­ing.

“There's al­ways a bal­ance of what you will learn in each se­mes­ter. Whether or not you lean to­wards English or Pub­lic Re­la­tions, each sub­ject will of­fer knowl­edge that is use­ful for each field.”

She said her class­mates were fun and her in­volve­ment in ex­tracur­ric­u­lar events had also given her new ex­pe­ri­ences and helped her pre­pare for the real world.

With a stu­dent pop­u­la­tion of 25,000 across all cam­puses, there is al­ways a hive of ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing cul­tural, so­cial, sport­ing and recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties all year round.
