De­gree path­way be­gins at IUKL

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

THE In­fra­struc­ture Univer­sity Kuala Lumpur (IUKL) un­der­stands that there are many im­por­tant fac­tors that should be taken into con­sid­er­a­tion when choos­ing a univer­sity, like time, cost and qual­ity of the pro­grammes. The 1+3 Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Plan is care­fully de­signed to ad­dress th­ese needs.

IUKL’s 1+3 Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Plan con­sists of one-year Foun­da­tion Stud­ies and a three­year de­gree pro­gramme. An Engineering de­gree will take up to four years to com­plete while some oth­ers may take up to three-and-a-half years. This plan is spe­cially de­signed for SPM leavers to en­able them to get a de­gree pro­gramme of their choice in just one year.

At IUKL, there are two ma­jor streams of Foun­da­tion Stud­ies – Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence and Foun­da­tion in Arts. In terms of de­gree pro­grammes, IUKL of­fers over 40 ma­jors that cover the fields of Engineering, Ar­chi­tec­ture, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and Ap­plied Sciences.

The Foun­da­tion Stud­ies of IUKL is un­like oth­ers where stu­dents are im­me­di­ately placed into a very de­fined field of study. It is de­signed to be gen­eral, al­low­ing stu­dents to have ex­tra one year to de­cide what they re­ally wish to pur­sue in the fu­ture. Be­sides the fact that it is a fast-track pro­gramme to a Bach­e­lor’s de­gree, along the way stu­dents will re­ceive ad­vice and guid­ance from ex­pe­ri­enced lec­tur­ers for them to make the right choice.

At IUKL, the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence will even­tu­ally pre­pare stu­dents for Engineering, Health Sci­ence and Ap­plied Sciences pro­grammes. The Foun­da­tion in Arts al­lows stu­dents to con­tinue their de­gree in the fields of Ar­chi­tec­ture, Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion and other rel­e­vant fields of study.

Also, your stud­ies are made more af­ford­able at IUKL. In ad­di­tion to its own Schol­ar­ship Scheme, IUKL does of­fer the Sin Chew Daily Ed­u­ca­tion Fund, The Star Ed­u­ca­tion Fund and some other NGO ed­u­ca­tion funds to as­sist am­bi­tious and un­der­priv­i­leged stu­dents re­alise their dreams.

IUKL also of­fers stu­dents up to 60% tu­ition fee waiver based on their se­mes­ter per­for­mance. This scheme will be au­to­mat­i­cally granted to stu­dents whose se­mes­ter re­sults meet the re­quire­ments.

Other forms of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance avail­able at IUKL in­clude the PTPTN loan, MARA loan and Yayasan Negeri. You may ob­tain fur­ther de­tails from the univer­sity’s of­fi­cial web­site.

IUKL is cur­rently hav­ing its Jan­uary in­take for Foun­da­tion Stud­ies. Those who reg­is­ter for the pro­gramme this De­cem­ber will be en­ti­tled to a spe­cial tu­ition re­bate of RM1,000. In ad­di­tion, you can start the pro­gramme with only RM100 reg­is­tra­tion fee. Fresh SPM leavers are en­cour­aged to ap­ply us­ing trial exam re­sults.
