DISTED Col­lege pro­vides stu­dents with good qual­ity and ca­reer-driven higher ed­u­ca­tion. In Jan­uary 2014, it has in­takes for school leavers who are keen to pur­sue cour­ses in pre-univer­sity stud­ies, busi­ness, ac­count­ing, hos­pi­tal­ity, psy­chol­ogy, com­puter sci­ence, IT, cre­ative mul­ti­me­dia and engineering.

A-Level and SAM

Disted is the lead­ing provider for the Cam­bridge A-Level and the South Aus­tralian Ma­tric­u­la­tion (SAM) pro­grammes in north­ern Malaysia with a con­sis­tent track record of high achieve­ments.

The col­lege of­fers a one-year in­ten­sive and fast-track Cam­bridge A-Level pro­gramme where bright sci­ence and arts stu­dents can en­ter univer­sity ear­lier, sav­ing time and money, while those who pre­fer a more leisurely pace may opt for the 18-month pro­gramme.

Stu­dents who start the SAM pro­gramme in Jan­uary, with a choice of sci­ence and arts sub­jects, can fin­ish their stud­ies within the same year.

Busi­ness and ac­count­ing

SPM school leavers who are keen on busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion can start with the two-year Diploma in Busi­ness Stud­ies to ac­quire knowl­edge and skills cru­cial to the ef­fec­tive and ef­fi­cient man­age­ment and op­er­a­tion of a busi­ness en­ter­prise.

Those who specif­i­cally in­tend to ob­tain lead­ing-edge ex­per­tise for the ac­count­ing and fi­nance pro­fes­sions can opt for the twoyear Diploma in Ac­count­ing, which cov­ers con­tem­po­rary con­cepts and prac­ti­cal tech­niques of ac­count­ing, fi­nance, man­age­ment, au­dit­ing, law, tax­a­tion and ac­count­ing in­for­ma­tion sys­tem.

Hold­ers of both diplo­mas can go on into the sec­ond year of a 3+0 twin­ning de­gree pro­gramme with UK’s Stafford­shire Univer­sity at Disted, with a choice of cour­ses com­pris­ing BA(Hons) Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance, BA(Hons) Busi­ness Man­age­ment, BA(Hons) In­ter­na­tional Busi­ness Man­age­ment and BA(Hons) Mar­ket­ing Man­age­ment.

Diploma in Busi­ness Stud­ies hold­ers can gain ad­vanced stand­ing at link uni­ver­si­ties abroad, while Diploma in Ac­count­ing grad­u­ates can progress into ACCA Qual­i­fi­ca­tion stud­ies.
