Tay­lor-ed for suc­cess

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

There are eight facets to TGC – Dis­ci­pline-spe­cific Knowl­edge, life­long learn­ing, Think­ing and Prob­lem solv­ing skills, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, In­ter­per­sonal skills, In­trap­er­sonal skills, Ci­ti­zen­ship and Global Per­spec­tives and Dig­i­tal lit­er­acy.

Th­ese at­tributes are in­stilled at co-cur­ric­u­lar and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar lev­els, pro­vid­ing stu­dents am­ple op­por­tu­ni­ties for de­vel­op­ment across the univer­sity. It ranges from in­ter­na­tional col­lab­o­ra­tions, fairs, com­mu­nity ser­vice ini­tia­tives, sports and re­cre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties, com­pe­ti­tions, in­tern­ships and other per­sonal and pro­fes­sional de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties.

six years from its im­ple­men­ta­tion, the ini­tia­tive has en­abled Tay­lor’s Univer­sity stu­dents to do well in their fields. In the Min­istry of Higher Ed­u­ca­tion (MoHE) Tracer study 2011, it was re­vealed that Tay­lor’s Univer­sity bach­e­lor’s de­gree grad­u­ates’ av­er­age monthly start­ing pay is at the top 25% among other grad­u­ates of the same dis­ci­plines in Malaysia.

The em­ploy­a­bil­ity of Tay­lor’s stu­dents and grad­u­ates is tes­ta­ment to the ef­fec­tive­ness of the in­clu­sion of the TGC ini­tia­tive in the ped­a­gogy avail­able at Tay­lor’s Univer­sity.

Tay­lor’s also prides it­self on the de­liv­ery of a holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion that re­sults not just in ex­cel­lent aca­demic ac­com­plish­ments but also in grad­u­ates with qual­i­ties that are highly sought af­ter in the global mar­ket­place.

Tay­lor’s Univer­sity strives to turn its stu­dents into ta­lented grad­u­ates who are highly sought-af­ter by em­ploy­ers.
