The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

UNITAR In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity (UNITAR) has in­creased its in­ter­na­tional univer­sity part­ner­ships by form­ing an al­liance with the Univer­sity of Brad­ford, United King­dom.

The part­ner­ship is de­signed to pro­mote the in­ter­na­tion­al­i­sa­tion of higher ed­u­ca­tion in Busi­ness and Man­age­ment and also cul­tural co­op­er­a­tion be­tween Malaysia and the United King­dom.

The agree­ment with Univer­sity of Brad­ford is drawn up in ac­cor­dance with and un­der the terms of Univer­sity of Brad­ford’s Qual­ity As­sur­ance Ar­range­ments for Col­lab­o­ra­tive Pro­vi­sion to reg­u­late aca­demic, fi­nan­cial, ad­min­is­tra­tive and prac­ti­cal ar­eas.

Among the ar­eas con­cerned are In­ter­na­tional stu­dent re­cruit­ment, fac­ulty and cur­ricu­lum de­vel­op­ment and ex­change, doctoral pro­grammes, in­clud­ing split PhDs, ca­pac­ity build­ing and train­ing pro­grammes, joint re­search pro­grammes as well as recog­ni­tion and ar­tic­u­la­tion agree­ments.

“Part­ner­ing with Univer­sity of Brad­ford, which has over 50 years of aca­demic ex­cel­lence in the UK is an hon­our for UNITAR and rep­re­sents the right choice for our stu­dents to be­gin their in­ter­na­tional ed­u­ca­tion path­way,” said UNITAR In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity Strate­gic Al­liance and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Of­fice di­rec­tor Sheikh Fahmy Sheikh Mo­hamed.

UNITAR Bach­e­lor of Man­age­ment and Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tions (Hons) stu­dents un­der the ar­tic­u­la­tion pro­gramme will be able to con­tinue their sec­ond and fi­nal year at Univer­sity of Brad­ford.

Stu­dents of any of the cour­ses stated who suc­cess­fully com­plete Year 1 at UNITAR with no fail­ures across the Prin­ci­ples of Ac­count­ing and Prin­ci­ples of Fi­nance mod­ules and also meet Brad­ford School’s of Math­e­matic and English Lan­guage re­quire­ments will be el­i­gi­ble for ad­mis­sion to Stage 2 (Level 5) of the Brad­ford BSc (Hons) Busi­ness and Man­age­ment Stud­ies pro­gramme.

An added ben­e­fit of study­ing at Brad­ford is that in­ter­na­tional stu­dents are en­ti­tled to schol­ar­ships of up to 50% off the tu­ition fee.

In­ter­ested ap­pli­cants can get in touch with the schol­ar­ship man­age­ment team at Brad­ford.

UNITAR stu­dents would be able to find a warm and com­fort­able place to sleep, study or just re­lax – Univer­sity of Brad­ford is proud of The Green, its stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion that has been awarded first prize for Best Stu­dent Hous­ing at the pres­ti­gious Col­lege and Univer­sity Busi­ness Of­fi­cers (CUBO).

A £40mil (RM217mil) stu­dent vil­lage, The Green is a pur­pose­built stu­dent vil­lage at the City Cam­pus, putting stu­dents right at the heart of the univer­sity’s aca­demic stud­ies, stu­dent fa­cil­i­ties, sup­port ser­vices and so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

It is a unique ex­am­ple of sus­tain­able build­ing de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of its kind in the world, mak­ing the most of nat­u­ral re­sources such as so­lar power and rain­wa­ter and cost­ing very lit­tle to heat and light up the place.

A stu­dent so­cial pro­gramme fea­tur­ing a team of stu­dents act­ing as am­bas­sadors to or­gan­ise events, trips and com­pe­ti­tions for sus­tain­able liv­ing at The Green add to the com­mu­nity spirit felt through­out the stu­dent vil­lage.
