The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

Tay­lor’s Univer­sity aims to em­power each stu­dent that comes through its doors with an ed­u­ca­tion that is the best choice for them.

Through its Foun­da­tion cour­ses, Tay­lor’s Univer­sity of­fers seven dis­ci­plines – ar­chi­tec­ture, Busi­ness, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Com­put­ing, De­sign, Engineering and the sciences, which are of­fered to stu­dents branch­ing into Bio­sciences, Medicine and Phar­macy.

By sign­ing up for th­ese year-long cour­ses, stu­dents will be tak­ing the short­est path to their ca­reer of choice af­ter their si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia ex­am­i­na­tions in Form Five.

For those that have a clear idea of the field they would like to be in, the Foun­da­tion cour­ses of­fer a head start and al­low them to be ex­posed to sub­jects that would be ben­e­fi­cial for their de­gree pro­gramme.

at Tay­lor’s Univer­sity, ed­u­ca­tion is stu­dent-cen­tric and the univer­sity strives to heighten the learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence while en­sur­ing they ac­quire skills that will serve them in the fu­ture.

Tay­lor’s Univer­sity’s Vice Chan­cel­lor and Pres­i­dent Pro­fes­sor Datuk Dr Has­san said ex­plained:

“Hav­ing a univer­sity de­gree is no longer the sole cri­te­ria to suc­ceed in ca­reer or even to se­cure a job upon grad­u­a­tion.

“stu­dents must be equipped with soft skills to suc­ceed in the work­ing world and most im­por­tantly be pre­pared to com­pete lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally.

“Tay­lor’s Univer­sity has put into place var­i­ous ini­tia­tives to pro­duce grad­u­ates who can shine in their fu­ture work­places and con­trib­ute to­wards na­tion build­ing”.

some of the ini­tia­tives avail­able to this end for those who en­rol in Foun­da­tion-level cour­ses are the In­te­grated sci­ence Project, which im­ple­ments re­search skills and sci­en­tific con­cepts and bal­ances learn­ing out­comes with hands-on ex­per­i­men­ta­tions.

Ex­po­sure to cur­rent trends and de­vel­op­ment through the “learn­ing from Ex­perts” ini­tia­tive and “First year Ex­pe­ri­ence” pro­vides stu­dents with the sup­port to ad­just to univer­sity life and ex­cel in both aca­demic and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.

all this has been con­cep­tu­alised and im­ple­mented to pro­vide Tay­lor’s Univer­sity stu­dents with the abil­ity to fully utilise their time and be able to gain the nec­es­sary knowl­edge and skills for their course of choice.

The univer­sity prides it­self in the de­liv­ery of a holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion that re­sults not just in ex­cel­lent aca­demic ac­com­plish­ments but also in grad­u­ates with qual­i­ties that are highly sought af­ter in the global mar­ket­place.

By pre­par­ing its grad­u­ates to be pro­fes­sion­ally com­pe­tent and job-ready, Tay­lor’s grad­u­ates pos­sess an added edge to suc­ceed in their ca­reers.

This is also ev­i­dent in the high em­ploy­a­bil­ity rate of its grad­u­ates, with many se­cur­ing jobs even be­fore they have com­pleted their fi­nal ex­am­i­na­tions.
