Solid ground­ing in law and busi­ness

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL -

SINCE 1991, Brick­fields Asia Col­lege (BAC) has es­tab­lished it­self as the fastest and smartest way to UK law and busi­ness de­grees and an ex­cel­lent rep­u­ta­tion for qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

Its part­ner­ships and af­fil­i­a­tions with over 20 for­eign uni­ver­si­ties and pro­fes­sional or­gan­i­sa­tions of­fer ac­cess to over 70 world­class law and busi­ness de­grees and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions that can be com­pleted lo­cally or abroad.

The Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions (CIE) A-Level is recog­nised in over 150 coun­tries. It is the most widely ac­cepted in the world.

Stu­dents can choose BAC’s Cam­bridge ALevel Ex­press Route (11 months) or Stan­dard Route (18 months). BAC’s A-Level Ex­press Route will give stu­dents an edge. Cou­pled with BAC’s UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme in Law or Busi­ness, stu­dents can grad­u­ate up to two years ahead of their peers.

Last year, two BAC stu­dents were awarded the Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards – Amanda Kong was awarded the Best Stu­dent in the World for Law and Lau Foong Yee was the Best Stu­dent in the World for Busi­ness Stud­ies.

BAC is re­puted for be­ing the na­tion’s No.1 law school. In 2012 and 2013 alone, BAC stu­dents se­cured 63 First Class Hon­ours (LLB) de­grees from the re­spec­tive part­ner uni­ver­si­ties. BAC is also one of the first in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia to of­fer two routes to a law de­gree – the Univer­sity of Lon­don In­ter­na­tional Pro­gramme (UOL) and UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme (Law) – recog­nised by the Le­gal Pro­fes­sion Qual­i­fy­ing Board of Malaysia (LPQB) and the Law So­ci­ety in the UK.

The UOL pro­gramme is an af­ford­able in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised UK qual­i­fi­ca­tion with the dis­tinc­tion as be­ing the only “ex­ter­nal” law de­gree recog­nised by the LPQB.

The UK Trans­fer Pro­gramme (Law) en­ables stu­dents to com­plete their first and/or sec­ond year of de­gree in Malaysia and sub­se­quently trans­fer to any of BAC’s part­ner uni­ver­si­ties for the fi­nal year.

BAC also of­fers a UK Trans­fer de­gree pro­gramme in Busi­ness, which works the same way as its Law coun­ter­part.

It of­fers stu­dents a choice of over 50 de­grees from a range of top-notch uni­ver­si­ties. This pro­gramme also al­lows stu­dents to com­plete up to two years of a three-year in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised busi­ness de­gree in Malaysia.

The UK Trans­fer de­gree pro­gramme (Busi­ness) of­fers firm ground­ing in fun­da­men­tal busi­ness con­cepts be­fore branch­ing out into spe­cific fields as BAC pro­vides a com­pre­hen­sive ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence.

BAC’s city cam­pus com­prises three premises, one of which is the RM10mil sta­teof-the-art stu­dent re­source cen­tre.

In ad­di­tion, the col­lege op­er­ates two rea­son­ably priced lux­u­ri­ous stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tions – Mu­tiara Res­i­dency and the new RM15mil BAC Res­i­dences.

BAC’s ag­gres­sive ex­pan­sion plans has now seen a brand new RM80mil cam­pus lo­cated in the heart of Pe­tal­ing Jaya city that prom­ises stu­dents the best of cut­ting-edge fa­cil­i­ties.

To make ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion more ac­ces­si­ble, BAC has set up the Brick­fields Ed­u­ca­tion Fund that awards Merit Schol­ar­ships and Fi­nan­cial Aid Schol­ar­ships based on aca­demic ex­cel­lence and fi­nan­cial need.

BAC has also col­lab­o­rated with the Star Ed­u­ca­tion Fund, MAPCU Ed­u­ca­tion Fund and Sin Chew Ed­u­ca­tion Fund.

Other forms of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance in­clude in­ter­est-free in­stal­ment pay­ment schemes, PTPTN loans and EPF with­drawals.

Stu­dents also re­ceive con­stantly up­dated dig­i­tal notes to fur­ther en­hance their ed­u­ca­tion ex­pe­ri­ence.

Re­cently, BAC was awarded the Best Brands Award in 2012 for Cor­po­rate Brand­ing in Ed­u­ca­tion (Law) by BrandLau­re­ate and the 2013 SME Recog­ni­tion Award for Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence.
