Mak­ing ed­u­ca­tion life’s best gift

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

IF you are of col­lege-go­ing age, keen on law and or­der, and are look­ing for the ul­ti­mate Christ­mas gift this year, this ar­ti­cle is for you. Ad­vance Ter­tiary Col­lege (ATC) is the pi­o­neer pri­vate in­sti­tu­tion in Malaysia of­fer­ing law pro­grammes and has po­si­tioned it­self to be­come the pre­mier in­sti­tu­tion for law de­gree.

It is a one-stop cen­tre where a stu­dent af­ter Form 5 will be able to com­plete his/her en­tire jour­ney to­wards be­com­ing a lawyer from pre-ter­tiary level to post­grad­u­ate pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

In its 25 years of ex­is­tence, ATC has be­come the largest in­de­pen­dent law school in Asia with two cam­puses in Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur and Pe­nang), one in Sin­ga­pore and a joint ven­ture part­ner­ship in Hong Kong with the pub­licly funded Hong Kong Polytech­nic Univer­sity.

Its Busi­ness School has also grown to of­fer a va­ri­ety of con­tem­po­rary and mar­ket-driven Cer­tifi­cate and Diploma pro­grammes.

The first step to a law de­gree is ob­tain­ing a pre-ter­tiary qual­i­fi­ca­tion. The most pop­u­lar en­try to the Univer­sity of Lon­don LLB is the UK A-Level qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

ATC of­fers the Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions A-Lev­els for stu­dents who want to progress into the LLB pro­gramme or to any other univer­sity in any dis­ci­pline. This qual­i­fi­ca­tion is widely recog­nised world­wide.

If you are con­sid­er­ing the A-Level pro­gramme but are still un­de­cided on where to pur­sue it, ATC in­vites you to take ad­van­tage of its Free Trial Class pro­gramme that al­lows you to sit in a class for up to two weeks be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion.

The pro­gramme is con­ducted at ATC on an AS/Ad­vance level for­mat over one-and-a-half-years as pre­scribed by the Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry.

ATC’s re­sults on the Cam­bridge A-Lev­els ex­ams in 2012 con­tin­ued its tra­di­tion of ex­cel­lence.

Ting Ee Lin was awarded the best mark in the world for the Law pa­per and Chang Heng Joe was awarded the best mark in Eco­nom­ics in Malaysia. Many stu­dents have ob­tained straight As in the pa­pers that they sat for.

ATC has been recog­nised by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry with a fourstar rank­ing, putting it above other spe­cial­ist pri­vate law schools in the coun­try.

ATC prin­ci­pal and deputy chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Dr Danny Choong said, “ATC’s out­stand­ing achieve­ments in re­cent years is pow­ered by the amaz­ing fac­ulty of lec­tur­ers that form the pil­lars on which it stands.”

ATC boasts the largest full-time fac­ulty of any pri­vate law school in the coun­try sup­ple­mented by part­time teach­ers, who are ex­pe­ri­enced prac­ti­tion­ers.

ATC’s fa­mous In­ten­sive Re­vi­sion Pro­gramme has also been quoted as a rea­son for its stu­dents’ suc­cess.

This 10-week pro­gramme drills stu­dents with exam tech­nique and dis­cus­sion of the most re­cent pastyear exam pa­pers.

ATC stu­dents’ ex­cel­lent world­class re­sults on the Univer­sity of Lon­don LLB pro­grammes ev­ery year bear tes­ta­ment to its suc­cess.

ATC stu­dents achieved three out of only 10 First Class Hon­ours de­grees awarded world­wide this year for the LLB and 33 sec­ond Class Up­per de­grees, the most from any sin­gle in­sti­tu­tion for The Univer­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­grammes world­wide.

With thou­sands of grad­u­ates in­volved in var­i­ous in­dus­tries, the ATC grad­u­ate is highly em­ploy­able both lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

The Univer­sity of Lon­don recog­nises the ex­cel­lence pro­duced by the team at ATC.

Univer­sity of Lon­don Ex­ter­nal Un­der­grad­u­ate Laws Pro­gramme for­mer di­rec­tor Prof Dr Wayne Mor­ri­son said, “ATC has groomed stu­dents on the Univer­sity of Lon­don pro­gramme to achieve First Class Hon­ours and Sec­ond Class Up­per Hon­ours de­grees and is the sin­gle largest in­sti­tu­tion in the world to pro­duce such re­sults on the Univer­sity of Lon­don Law de­gree pro­gramme.”

ATC was also one of only five in­sti­tu­tions world­wide recog­nised for ex­cel­lence in con­junc­tion with the Univer­sity of Lon­don’s 150th an­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions.

ATC has been recog­nised by the Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry with a four-star rank­ing, putting it above any other spe­cial­ist pri­vate law school in the coun­try.
