MAHSA pre-univer­sity pro­gramme of­fers as­sur­ance

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

DE­CID­ING on a ca­reer comes easy for some but takes more time for oth­ers. It is a de­ci­sion that is best made while ex­pos­ing one­self to the most nec­es­sary sub­jects of each field, be it aca­dem­i­cally or prac­ti­cally.

MAHSA Univer­sity’s pre-univer­sity pro­gramme of­fers stu­dents the op­por­tu­nity to be specif­i­cally pre­pared for their cho­sen de­gree choices.

They are el­i­gi­ble to en­rol upon com­ple­tion of SPM, even with their trial re­sults. It is dur­ing the first se­mes­ter that stu­dents will be taught sub­jects, which will be use­ful in as­sist­ing them in mak­ing their de­ci­sion for a de­gree pro­gramme.

Op­tions avail­able for stu­dents em­bark­ing on their sec­ond se­mes­ter in the pre-univer­sity pro­gramme in­clude the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence and Foun­da­tion in Busi­ness, which are spe­cially catered to build­ing the nec­es­sary aca­demic strengths they will re­quire when they move on to the de­gree pro­gramme of their choice at MAHSA Univer­sity.

Stu­dents have the op­tion of choos­ing from de­gree pro­grammes such as Medicine, Den­tistry, Busi­ness, Ac­count­ing, Engineering, Phar­macy, Phys­io­ther­apy, Nurs­ing, Bio­med­i­cal Sci­ence, Med­i­cal Imaging as well as En­vi­ron­men­tal Health.

Dur­ing this crit­i­cal de­ci­sion-mak­ing pe­riod, stu­dents are also guided by the ex­pe­ri­enced and ded­i­cated fac­ulty of the Cen­tre of Pre-Univer­sity Stud­ies.

Its di­rec­tor Dr James Walsh ad­vises stu­dents, “Do well in your ex­ams and take con­trol of your aca­demic ca­reer. Al­ways make sure as stu­dents that you do what you want, not what oth­ers tell you to do, but take good ad­vice from those with greater ex­pe­ri­ence in life such as your par­ents and fam­ily.

“Come to MAHSA and see what we can do for you to help you reach your goals.”

The PhD holder from the Na­tional Univer­sity of Ire­land (Dublin), who has an im­pres­sive back­ground in Physics cou­pled with a strong affin­ity for re­search, goes on to ex­plain that the MAHSA Pre-Univer­sity Depart­ment aims to de­velop stu­dents into univer­sity ma­te­rial.

He said stu­dents in the pre-univer­sity pro­gramme at MAHSA are nur­tured to en­sure that they will have a smooth tran­si­tion into their de­gree pro­gramme.

Dr Walsh also shared how he is cur­rently in­volved in men­tor­ing stu­dents in MAHSA’s pre-univer­sity pro­gramme.

MAHSA Univer­sity’s new in­take will com­mence on Jan 5. Stu­dents are wel­come to ap­ply us­ing their SPM trial re­sults to en­sure a seat in the pre-univer­sity pro­gramme.
