BAC students take the world by storm
BRICKFIELDS Asia College’s (BAC) students have won Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards for Best Student in the World in Law and Business for the Cambridge ‘A’ Levels Examinations in 2013.
BAC is also the only Malaysian institution with the highest number of Top in the World Outstanding Cambridge A2 Learner Awards this year.
Amanda Kong Hwei Zhen, a visually impaired student, stunned the world by winning the Best in the World Award for Law.
“The people at BAC are friendly and helpful. My lecturers are very accommodating and I can ask them anything at anytime,” she said.
The CIE ‘A’ Level is a perfect preuniversity programme for students who have yet to decide on a specific tertiary education path because it keeps doors open to a broad range of programmes.
Students interested in furthering their studies in Law, Business, Media, Finance, Economics or Communication among other areas, can select from the range of ‘A’ Level subjects that BAC offers, which include Business Studies, Law, Economics, Accounting, English Literature and Mathematics.
The BAC ‘A’ Level Express Route programme is a specially designed 11-month programme that 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.
Many students who began with the BAC ‘A’ Level Express Route have also gone on to achieve stellar performances in their undergraduate studies.
BAC ‘A’ Level students have also secured various prestigious schol- arships. An example is Kimberley Ong, who scored 3As in the A Levels and was named Best Student in Malaysia for June 2011 University of London Intermediate Examinations.
She was awarded the King’s College Scholarship for her final two years of study in the UK.
The success of BAC’s students is attributed to its teaching faculty, which consists of highly qualified lecturers with significant A-Level teaching experience.
This is complemented by the college’s state-of-the-art facilities that include a comprehensive library and research centre, computer labs, moot court, gymnasium, dance studio and the Sky Garden Sports Cafe, which help to contribute towards a holistic education experience.
BAC also operates two comfortable yet reasonably priced student accommodation centres.
Recently, BAC launched the Brickfields Business School, which is housed in its new RM80mil campus in Petaling Jaya.
Among the courses offered 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 several education funds, such as the Star Education Fund, to provide more options for students. Other financial assistance includes zero-interest instalment payment schemes, PTPTN loans and EPF withdrawals.
BAC’s January 2014 intake is under way and students who sign up will get a complimentary Microsoft Surface RT tablet (terms and conditions 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. They can also receive free books and study materials, workshops on speed reading, study skills and memory and gym membership worth RM7,000.
