From pre-ter­tiary to de­gree

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

MAK­ING the de­ci­sion to pur­sue ALevels may seem sim­ple, yet de­cid­ing on the best in­sti­tu­tion is no easy task con­sid­er­ing the nu­mer­ous in­sti­tu­tions avail­able.

Be­fore you pick a school, you need to de­cide on what you want from your higher ed­u­ca­tion. Fear, self­doubt, anx­i­ety, cost and ben­e­fits are all at play in the search for the best col­lege.

This is why at ATC, your learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is pri­or­ity.

Since its com­mence­ment in 1987, ATC has of­fered ed­u­ca­tion at pre-ter­tiary level with the ob­jec­tive of giv­ing stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion in most fields. In the last five years, it has ex­panded re­gion­ally with branches in Pe­nang, Sin­ga­pore and Hong Kong.

ATC has com­mit­ted it­self to pro­vid­ing stu­dents with qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion. With over 2,000 stu­dents read­ing for pro­fes­sional and pre-ter­tiary stud­ies, this is proof of its strong rep­u­ta­tion and lead­er­ship in pri­vate ed­u­ca­tion.

Vi­vian Oh, the 2013 re­cip­i­ent of the Malaysian Law Schol­ar­ship Award who will be fur­ther­ing her Univer­sity of Lon­don LLB de­gree at King’s Col­lege, Lon­don, was a for­mer stu­dent of the A-Lev­els depart­ment.

She achieved re­mark­able re­sults in her A-Lev­els and went on to per­form well dur­ing her first year of the LLB pro­gramme at ATC. To be of­fered the King’s Col­lege schol­ar­ship is a re­mark­able achieve­ment and it pro­vided her with the op­por­tu­nity to com­plete her law de­gree in Bri­tain.

This hon­our is avail­able to only one Malaysian an­nu­ally; ATC has an out- stand­ing track record of over 10 such schol­ars over the years.

Oh has ben­e­fited from the sound foun­da­tion she re­ceived from the teach­ing at ATC. The A-Lev­els qual­i­fi­ca­tion has pro­vided her the proper tools to take on sub­jects that are more chal­leng­ing.

De­signed to give stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion in most fields, the A-Lev­els is awarded by the Univer­sity of Cam­bridge. Sub­jects of­fered at ATC in­clude English lit­er­a­ture, law, busi­ness stud­ies, eco­nom­ics, ac­count­ing and math­e­mat­ics. Ex­am­i­na­tions are held twice a year, giv­ing stu­dents the chance to pre­pare them­selves for their re­spec­tive sub­jects.

Suc­cess­ful stu­dents from the 2012 School of Pre-Ter­tiary pro­gramme in­clude Ting Ee Linn, who ob­tained the high­est scores in the world for the sub­ject of law, and Chan Heng Joe, who scored top marks for eco­nom­ics in Malaysia on the AS Level.

This is a tes­ta­ment of the strong com­mit­ment of the fac­ulty in en­sur­ing stu­dents ex­cel in their ed­u­ca­tion at the in­sti­tu­tion.

With ded­i­cated and ex­pe­ri­enced lec­tur­ers, the ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence of­fered will al­low stu­dents to also de­velop the con­fi­dence and char­ac­ter needed to pur­sue fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion both lo­cally and abroad.

Call 03-2031 0266 for de­tails or drop by ATC’s cam­pus at Ban­gu­nan Tu­nas Utama, Jalan Pe­tal­ing, Kuala Lumpur. The cam­pus is lo­cated at Level 18-20, Me­nara Umno, Jalan Ma­cal­is­ter, Pe­nang (04-229 9266).

ATC of­fers ed­u­ca­tion at the pre-ter­tiary level to give stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion in most fields.
