The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

tHE achieve­ment of KBU In­ter­na­tional Col­lege’s Aus­tralian Ma­tric­u­la­tion (AUSMAT) stu­dents in their fi­nal ex­am­i­na­tion did not come as a sur­prise to Ma­tric­u­la­tion Stud­ies Cen­tre head Jenny Wong Sook Khuan.

“We have al­ways known that our stu­dents will pass with fly­ing colours as we have seen their po­ten­tial from the start. Hav­ing lec­tur­ers who are pas­sion­ate about teach­ing and with vast teach­ing ex­pe­ri­ence is an­other rea­son why our stu­dents ex­celled in the ex­am­i­na­tion,” said Wong.

Stu­dents Tan Wei­Jie, Il­laggo Pe­ri­an­nan, Lim Wei Ren and Nu­rul Hafizah Mat Kamil emerged with the high­est Aus­tralian Ter­tiary Ad­mis­sion Rank (ATAR) scores of 99.90, 98.9, 97.85 and 97.55, re­spec­tively.

They and the other high AUSMAT achiev­ers sang praises of their lec­tur­ers who jour­neyed with them on the road to suc­cess.

Tan, who is now do­ing a bridg­ing pro­gramme in Ger­many, said: “Our lec­tur­ers are al­ways there when we need them. They are ap­proach­able and well-versed in their field of ex­per­tise.”

The 20-year-old who is plan­ning to em­bark on his en­gi­neer­ing ca­reer upon grad­u­a­tion also talked highly of KBU’s teach­ing and learn­ing fa­cil­i­ties and ISOcer­ti­fied li­brary.

Nu­rul Hafizah con­curred: “Cer­tain AUSMAT sub­jects such as Math­e­mat­ics and Physics are def­i­nitely dif­fi­cult com­pared with the A-Lev­els pro­gramme. But through the proper guid­ance and per­sonal at­ten­tion from our lec­tur­ers, we made it through the ex­am­i­na­tion.

“I am now pre­par­ing for my bridg­ing pro­gramme in Ger­many but un­til this mo­ment it all feels like a dream to me,” said the elated 20-year-old.

Speak­ing about her ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing part of the KBU AUSMAT pro­gramme, Nu­rul Hafizah said it was an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence and she had gained much from the pro­gramme.

“This proves that KBU’s AUSMAT pro­gramme pro­vides stu­dents with a wealth of op­tions. They can choose from a wide range of de­gree cour­ses of­fered by uni­ver­si­ties such as the Univer­sity of Mel­bourne, Univer­sity of New South Wales, Univer­sity of Ade­laide and many more,” added Wong.

She said stu­dents are equipped with rea­son­ing and think­ing skills through­out their stud­ies at KBU.

For those who have just com­pleted their SPM ex­am­i­na­tions and are look­ing for the short­est and smartest route to an Aus­tralian ed­u­ca­tion, the col­lege is the ideal op­tion.

The AUSMAT pro­gramme of­fered at KBU takes 10 months to com­plete af­ter which stu­dents can trans­fer to Aus­tralia.

The mod­u­lar pre-univer­sity pro­gramme is also recog­nised by most uni­ver­si­ties around the world and closely mon­i­tored by the School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Author­ity, Govern­ment of Western Aus­tralia.

The 10-month pro­gramme com­prises 50% course­work and 50% ex­ter­nal ex­am­i­na­tion.

Those in­ter­ested to ap­ply should pos­sess at least five rel­e­vant cred­its in SPM or GCE O-Lev­els, in­clu­sive of English lan­guage or equiv­a­lent qual­i­fi­ca­tions.
