Cus­tom-made cour­ses

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

DOMA Col­lege was es­tab­lished in June 2012 by a group of em­i­nent pri­vate Malaysian ar­chi­tects. The name Doma Col­lege was in­sti­tuted in Septem­ber 2012 which car­ries the mean­ing “Do­main of Mas­ter Ap­pren­tice­ship”.

Doma Col­lege em­pha­sises on in­dus­trial ex­pe­ri­ences. The pro­gramme helps po­ten­tial stu­dents to de­velop their job skills and in­dus­trial readi­ness so that they will be pre­pared to find work as ap­pren­tices. Pro­grammes are up to 24 months in du­ra­tion in-col­lege and in­cludes pro­fes­sional train­ing in the rel­e­vant field for up to four months.

Upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of both the pro­fes­sional train­ing and in-col­lege learn­ing, stu­dents will be awarded a Diploma and a Pro­fes­sional Cer­tifi­cate.

Doma Col­lege’s tagline “De­signed around you” aims to help av­er­age stu­dents suc­ceed in en­ter­ing path­way uni­ver­si­ties through the Global As­sess­ment Cer­tifi­cate (GAC) foun­da­tion study. Classes are rarely more than 50 stu­dents – a small class en­vi­ron­ment will give you a greater op­por­tu­nity to ask ques- tions, par­tic­i­pate in dis­cus­sions, and have a lec­turer/pro­fes­sor who ac­tu­ally knows who you are. The col­lege also pro­vides ad­di­tional ser­vices such as visa ap­pli­ca­tion and travel ar­range­ment for stu­dents.

One of the most im­por­tant fac­tors in stu­dents’ suc­cess in col­lege is in­ter­ac­tion with their lec­tur­ers. Th­ese in­ter­ac­tions of­fer the deep­est kind of learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences by en­abling stu­dents to ask ques­tions re­lated to their own strug­gles and in­ter­ests, to take re­spon­si­bil­ity for their own in­tel­lec­tual de­vel­op­ment and to make more per­sonal con­nec­tions with their lec­tur­ers.

In Doma Col­lege, pro­grammes widen stu­dents’ ex­pe­ri­ence by crit­i­cally ex­am­in­ing re­la­tion­ships among aca­demic dis­ci­plines. De­pend­ing on se­lected theme- based pro­grammes, stu­dents will work in a small sem­i­nar group of not more than 20 stu­dents.

While it is a rel­a­tively new col­lege, the peo­ple within the col­lege who help the col­lege grow come with ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence and from var­i­ous back­grounds.

If you’re look­ing for a solid path­way to univer­sity but have lessthan-per­fect grades, the GAC pro­gramme is what you want to check out. The GAC pro­gramme is a univer­sity prepa­ra­tion pro­gramme that pro­vides stu­dents with aca­demic knowl­edge, skills and con­fi­dence to en­ter and suc­cess­fully com­plete a bach­e­lors de­gree at one of the many se­lected uni­ver­si­ties.

GAC grad­u­ates can ap­ply for ad­mis­sion at more than 100 uni­ver­si­ties in the United States, Bri­tain, Canada, Aus­tralia, Sin­ga­pore and South-East Asian coun­tries.

The pro­grammes will serve as an open fo­rum for dis­cussing busi­ness course ex­pec­ta­tions. This one-year pro­gramme in­cludes English lis­ten­ing and speak­ing skills, Math­e­mat­ics, Com­put­ing, Busi­ness Sci­ence and Work­place Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Skills.

If you are look­ing to join their foun­da­tion study or diploma pro­grammes, ap­ply early. They of­fer “Early Bird Sav­ings” worth up to 30% on full-time cour­ses.

Ap­pli­cants must sub­mit their ap­pli­ca­tion and meet the en­try re­quire­ments by Dec 15, 2013 for the Jan­uary 2014 in­take in or­der to qual­ify for the sav­ings.
