Paving the way to top-notch uni­ver­si­ties

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - BRIGHT KIDS -

FROM the out­set, the guid­ing prin­ci­ple at UCSI In­ter­na­tional School, Subang, has been to pro­vide its stu­dents with a holis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence in de­vel­op­ing their aca­demic, cre­ative, so­cial and pro­fes­sional skills.

In or­der to re­alise this am­bi­tion, the school fol­lows an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised aca­demic pro­gramme, the ICGSEs, and has gath­ered ex­pert fac­ulty from around the globe and uses state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties and lab­o­ra­to­ries.

In essence, UCSI has es­tab­lished a mi­cro­cosm in which its stu­dents are able to arm them­selves with the knowl­edge and train­ing they re­quire to be crit­i­cal thinkers and in­de­pen­dent learn­ers. They are of­fered the chance to ex­plore the world at a smaller scale be­fore they ven­ture into the real world.

To fur­ther its mis­sion, ac­com­mo­date the needs of its cur­rent and new stu­dents, and pave their way to top-notch uni­ver­si­ties and ca­reers in some of the world’s most highly de­manded and pres­ti­gious fields, UCSI In­ter­na­tional School will launch the Cam­bridge GCE A-Lev­els in March this year.

The 18-month tai­lored pro­gramme tar­gets Year 11 and 12 stu­dents and of­fers two streams: sci­ence and busi­ness.

The sci­ence stream, which will lead the stu­dents to engineering or medicine de­gree pro­grammes, among oth­ers, of­fers: fur­ther math­e­mat­ics physics biology chem­istry

The busi­ness stream, which leads stu­dents to busi­ness de­gree and ICT de­gree pro­grammes, among oth­ers, of­fers: math­e­mat­ics busi­ness stud­ies eco­nom­ics psy­chol­ogy

To main­tain the school’s high stan­dards and en­sure that the A-Lev­els stu­dents en­joy the best qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion and guid­ance from its qual­i­fied na­tive-English­s­peak­ing ed­u­ca­tors, only one class­room will be of­fered in each stream, with a max­i­mum of 25 stu­dents.

Due to the lim­ited num­ber of seats in each stream, the en­rol­ment will be on a first-come, first-served ba­sis. The Cam­bridge GCE A-Lev­els fees range be­tween RM36,000 and RM38,000 de­pend­ing on the stream.
