Fastest and smartest way

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR EDUCATION FAIR 2013 -

SINCE 1991, Brick­fields Asia Col­lege (BAC) has es­tab­lished it­self as the fastest and smartest way to UK Law and Busi­ness de­grees.

Hav­ing sent more than 6500 law grad­u­ates into prac­tice, the col­lege has es­tab­lished an ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion as a provider of qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

Its grad­u­ates are highly sought af­ter by lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional firms in both the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors.

BAC cur­rently has part­ner­ships and af­fil­i­a­tions with more than 20 for­eign uni­ver­si­ties and pro­fes­sional or­gan­i­sa­tions, of­fer­ing its stu­dents ac­cess to over 70 world-class Law and Busi­ness de­grees and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions that can be com­pleted lo­cally

or abroad.

Cam­bridge A-Level

As a cru­cial step to­wards ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion, BAC of­fers the Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions (CIE) A-Level that is recog­nised by uni­ver­si­ties and higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions in over 150 coun­tries, in­clud­ing those in Bri­tain, the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Aus­tralia, mak­ing it the most widely ac­cepted pre-univer­sity qual­i­fi­ca­tion in the world.

Af­ter SPM, stu­dents look­ing for preuniver­sity pro­grammes can choose to pur­sue BAC’s Cam­bridge A-Level Ex­press Route (only 11 months) or opt for the Stan­dard Route (18 months).

Stu­dents, how­ever, will find that BAC’s ALevel Ex­press Route pro­gramme the per­fect op­tion for them as this spe­cially-de­signed 11month pro­gramme gives them an edge over those on the stan­dard 18 or 24-month route.

Cou­pled with BAC’s UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme in Law or Busi­ness, stu­dents will be able to grad­u­ate up to two years ahead of their peers, mak­ing BAC the fastest and smartest way to over 70 UK Law and Busi­ness de­grees.

This year saw stellar per­for­mances in the ALevel ex­am­i­na­tions, where two BAC stu­dents were awarded the Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards. Amanda Kong was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Law while Lau Foong Yee was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Busi­ness Stud­ies.

Brick­fields Law School

BAC is re­puted for be­ing the na­tion’s num­ber one law school, pro­duc­ing many top stu­dents and award win­ners at the univer­sity and post­grad­u­ate lev­els in the past two years.

In 2012 and 2013 alone, BAC stu­dents se­cured 63 First Class Hon­ours (LLB) de­grees from the re­spec­tive part­ner uni­ver­si­ties.

From 2005-2013, BAC’s CLP stu­dents se­cured ev­ery Tun Hamid Omar Foun­da­tion Award for Best Over­all Stu­dent as well as 45 out of 55 book prizes and 51 out of 63 Sec­ond Up­pers.

BAC is also one of the first in­sti­tu­tions in the na­tion to of­fer two routes to a law de­gree – the Univer­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme (UOL) and the UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme (Law), which are recog­nised by the Le­gal Pro­fes­sion Qual­i­fy­ing Board of Malaysia (LPQB) and the Law So­ci­ety in Bri­tain.

Stu­dents who wish to pur­sue their de­gree in Malaysia can opt for the UOL pro­gramme as it is the ideal choice for those who wish to ob­tain an af­ford­able in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Bri­tish qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

This pro­gramme also has the dis­tinc­tion as be­ing the only “ex­ter­nal” law de­gree that is recog­nised by the LPQB.

The UKT Pro­gramme (Law) is per­fect for stu­dents in­ter­ested in study­ing in Bri­tain while grad­u­at­ing with an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised de­gree from one of BAC’s pres­ti­gious Bri­tish part­ner uni­ver­si­ties.

This pro­gramme en­ables stu­dents to com­plete their first and/or sec­ond year of their de­gree in Malaysia (2+1 or 1+2), thus con­sid­er­ably re­duc­ing the cost of their ed­u­ca­tion. Stu­dents sub­se­quently trans­fer to any of BAC’s part­ner uni­ver­si­ties to com­plete the fi­nal year of their de­gree.

Brick­fields Busi­ness School

BAC also of­fers a UK Trans­fer de­gree pro­gramme in Busi­ness which works the same way as its Law coun­ter­part.

The trans­fer pro­gramme of­fers stu­dents a choice of over 50 de­grees rang­ing from the com­mon (Busi­ness Man­age­ment) to the un­con­ven­tional (Fes­ti­val and Events Man­age­ment, En­trepreneur­ship, Lo­gis­tics and Sup­ply Chain Man­age­ment) from a range of top notch uni­ver­si­ties such as De Mont­fort Univer­sity, Keele Univer­sity, Southamp­ton So­lent Univer­sity, Northum­bria Univer­sity, Glyn­dwr Univer­sity and Pem­brokeshire Col­lege.

Stu­dents in this pro­gramme will take mod­ules in ar­eas such as eco­nom­ics, ac­count­ing, man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, along with other elec­tives.

This pro­gramme also al­lows stu­dents to com­plete up to two years of a three year in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised busi­ness de­gree in Malaysia, sav­ing up to RM150,000.

To make ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion more ac­ces­si­ble to stu­dents, BAC has set up the Brick­fields Ed­u­ca­tion Fund.

This fund awards Merit Schol­ar­ships and Fi­nan­cial Aid Schol­ar­ships to stu­dents based on aca­demic ex­cel­lence and fi­nan­cial need.

BAC has also col­lab­o­rated with the Star Ed­u­ca­tion Fund, MAPCU Ed­u­ca­tion Fund and Sin Chew Ed­u­ca­tion Fund to pro­vide even more schol­ar­ship op­tions for stu­dents.

Other forms of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance in­clude zero in­ter­est in­stal­ment pay­ment schemes, PTPTN loans and EPF with­drawals.

BAC’s Jan­uary 2014 in­take is now un­der­way and stu­dents who sign up will get a com­pli­men­tary Mi­crosoft Sur­face RT tablet (terms & con­di­tions ap­ply) worth RM1,099.

Stu­dents will stand a chance to win a Lo­tus Elise, a Mini One or a trip to watch the FA Cup Fi­nals in Lon­don and much more.
