World-renowned ed­u­ca­tion at SEGi

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION NORTH -

FOR more than 35 years, SEGi Univer­sity Group (SEGi) has equipped grad­u­ates from di­verse back­grounds with ex­cep­tional ed­u­ca­tion for ca­reer achieve­ment and per­sonal suc­cess.

The Group first opened its doors as Sys­tem­atic Col­lege in 1977 in the heart of Kuala Lumpur’s com­mer­cial dis­trict, of­fer­ing pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions. By think­ing big while chart­ing the ter­rain for­ward with small steps and larger strides, a solid foun­da­tion was laid for SEGi to em­bark on a jour­ney of con­tin­u­ous and sus­tain­able growth.

By stand­ing stead­fast to its mis­sion of em­pow­er­ing learn­ers with ed­u­ca­tional and train­ing ex­cel­lence rel­e­vant to in­dus­try needs in con­tribut­ing pos­i­tively to global com­mu­ni­ties, SEGi is con­stantly on a quest to max­imise its stu­dents’ nat­u­ral tal­ents and po­ten­tial with qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

This ap­proach has churned out grad­u­ates who have the skills to be­come key in­dus­try lead­ers and con­trib­ute to na­tion build­ing. This is the main rea­son why SEGi en­deav­ours to reach out to wider seg­ments of so­ci­ety with a broad range of pro­grammes.

Pro­grammes of­fered in­clude Medicine, Phar­macy, Busi­ness & Ac­coun­tancy, Engineering, Built En­vi­ron­ment, Com­put­ing & Tech­nol­ogy, Cre­ative Arts & De­sign, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stud­ies, Al­lied Health Sciences and Law.

Also avail­able are pre-univer­sity, post­grad­u­ate and pro­fes­sional stud­ies, Amer­i­can De­gree Pro­gram, English Lan­guage, Ed­u­ca­tion & So­cial Sciences and Hos­pi­tal­ity & Tourism.

To­day, the Group is one of the largest pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion providers in Malaysia serv­ing some 30,000 stu­dents through five ma­jor cam­puses lo­cated in Kota Da­mansara, Kuala Lumpur, Subang Jaya, Pe­nang and Sarawak.

With pro­grammes tai­lored to meet both in­dus­try and stu­dent needs, SEGi grad­u­ates have eas­ily found em­ploy­ment and many have gone on to be­come lead­ers of their re­spec­tive in­dus­tries.

Its pur­suit of stellar ed­u­ca­tion has not gone un­no­ticed. Well­known uni­ver­si­ties in the United King­dom, United States and Aus­tralia have es­tab­lished strong ties with SEGi.

Among the es­teemed in­sti­tu­tions are Teesside Univer­sity (UK), Univer­sity of Aber­tay Dundee (UK), Univer­sity of Sun­der­land (UK), Univer­sity of South­ern Queens­land (Aus­tralia) and Up­per Iowa Univer­sity (USA).

Th­ese con­nec­tions of­fer stu­dents a wide va­ri­ety of in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised qual­i­fi­ca­tions that can be fully com­pleted lo­cally. As a provider of top-notch ed­u­ca­tion with a global em­pha­sis, the part­ner­ships have en­abled SEGi to pre­pare its stu­dents to have an in­ter­na­tional out­look.

Such part­ner­ships have also at­tracted many ea­ger learn­ers from around the world to pur­sue fur­ther stud­ies at SEGi.

As a re­sult, stu­dents get a head start at col­lab­o­rat­ing with fel­low peers of var­i­ous na­tion­al­i­ties and back­grounds that ef­fec­tively pre­pares them for work at multi­na­tional cor­po­ra­tions.

This colour­ful in­ter­na­tional stu­dent pop­u­la­tion has also helped put Malaysia on the world map as one of the most sought-af­ter des­ti­na­tions for af­ford­able ed­u­ca­tion.

One of the main events at SEGi Univer­sity is its an­nual In­ter­na­tional Cul­tural Night that pro­vides a fun and in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence for all to learn about each other’s coun­tries and cul­tures, and to cel­e­brate diver­sity.

To keep up in this era of glob­al­i­sa­tion, SEGi is stead­fast in its quest to make ed­u­ca­tion ac­ces­si­ble to all and will con­tinue to raise the bar for ed­u­ca­tion ex­cel­lence in Malaysia.

SEGi Univer­sity also of­fers online stud­ies through its Pro­fes­sional and Con­tin­u­ing Ed­u­ca­tion (PACE) learn­ing cen­tre for work­ing in­di­vid­u­als to progress in their ca­reers or seek­ing a ca­reer change.

Get a post­grad­u­ate de­gree that comes with the as­sur­ance of in­de­pen­dence and flex­i­bil­ity at your own pace.

With PACE, you can de­cide on the num­ber of sub­jects to pur­sue in one se­mes­ter and there is no time limit to com­plete your stud­ies.

And there is no fixed in­take, you can en­roll when­ever you are ready and con­ve­niently log in to your classes any time of the day, at any lo­ca­tion with In­ter­net ac­cess. Lessons are ac­ces­si­ble via the world’s largest Learn­ing Man­age­ment Sys­tem Black­board.

For a truly on-the-go learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, you can also down­load the Black­board­Learn ap­pli­ca­tion onto your mo­bile phone or tablet to con­nect with lec­tur­ers, class­mates and lessons.

The same teach­ing staff for full-time pro­grammes will also be teach­ing in PACE.

Stu­dents have the op­tion of trans­fer­ring their cred­its be­tween full time, part time and PACE pro­grammes.

SEGi is also com­mit­ted to be­come a leader in Re­search, De­vel­op­ment and In­no­va­tion by al­lo­cat­ing a sub­stan­tial amount of seed fund for re­search an­nu­ally in en­cour­ag­ing young re­searchers to em­bark on their re­search ac­tiv­i­ties that are rel­e­vant to the in­dus­try.

To fur­ther strengthen its com­mit­ment in the Re­search and De­vel­op­ment ini­tia­tive, SEGi has es­tab­lished a Re­search & In­no­va­tion Man­age­ment Cen­tre as the main li­ai­son cen­tre.

It is also the univer­sity’s goal to es­tab­lish nu­mer­ous aca­demic and in­dus­try col­lab­o­ra­tions in re­search and de­vel­op­ment that will en­hance univer­sity-in­dus­try link­ages through a smart part­ner­ship con­cept.
