Gain the BAC advantage
BRICKFIELDS Asia College (BAC) has over the past 21 years established itself as a renowned provider of world-class education in the areas of law and management.
As a first step towards an undergraduate degree, BAC offers the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) A-Level that is recognised by universities and higher education institutions in over 150 countries, making it the most widely accepted pre-university qualification in the world.
The CIE A-Level is a perfect preuniversity programme for students who have not decided on a specific tertiary education path because it keeps doors open to a broad range of programmes.
Students looking to get a headstart in their careers will find the BAC A-Level Express Route programme the perfect option for them.
This specially designed 11-month programme gives BAC students 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.
The A-Level programme at BAC offers more than just flexibility with the express and standard routes. It serves as a solid foundation to tertiary studies.
This is evident when considering the achievements of BAC’s A-Level students.
As testament to the quality of BAC’s A-Level programme, 2013 and 2012 saw stellar performances in the A-Level examinations.
This year, two of BAC’s students were awarded the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards, 2013.
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.
Other top students included Kong Xin Qing who scored 4A*s while both Lau Foong Yee and Thiagu Naidu scored 3A*s each along with six other students scoring straight As in the 2013 examinations.
These results were no flash in the pan as the previous year also saw two of BAC’s students receiving the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards.
Judith Pretha was awarded the Best Student in the World for Law and Lau Foong Yee was acknowledged as the Best Student in the World for Business Studies.
In addition, nine BAC students scored straight As after completing their programme in only 11 months.
Among BAC’s top performers are those who began their pre-university education at the college.
These include Cambridge Brilliance Award winners Soh Kit Inn who was the Top Student in the World for Law and Rachel Tey Mei Yee who was the top student in Malaysia for Business Studies in the October 2010 A-Level examinations.
Many of the students who began with the BAC A-Level Express Route have also gone on to achieve stellar performances in their undergraduate studies.
Among these students are Geraldine Kenel who went on to read law and graduate from Aberystwyth University with a first class LLB (Hons) in 2012 at the age of 20 and Tan Meng Yee who graduated from Cardiff University with first class LLB (Hons) in 2011 at the age of 19.
BAC A-Level students have also secured various prestigious scholarships. Kimberley Ong, who scored 3A*s in Law, Business Studies and Economics in the A-Level, was subsequently named the “Best Student in Malaysia” for the June 2011 University of London Intermediate Examinations and was awarded the King’s College Scholarship to complete her final two years of study in the UK.
In 2010, Kanimoli Balakrishnan received the Securities Commission Scholarship to read law at Warwick University and in 2011, Debra Nita secured the Astro Scholarship Award to read law at King’s College, both having completed the A-Level at BAC.
Recently, BAC launched the Brickfields Business School which is housed in its new RM80mil campus in Petaling Jaya. Among the courses offered on the programme are Business Management, Business Accounting, Finance and dual honours such as Business and Law, Business and Marketing and Business Accounting.
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 more scholarship options for students.
BAC’s January 2014 intake is now underway and students who sign up will get a complimentary Microsoft Surface RT tablet (terms andconditions apply) worth RM1,099. Students stand a chance to win a Lotus Elise, a Mini One or a trip to watch the FA Cup Finals in London.
