Get a Bri­tish de­gree in Malaysia

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

HE­RIOT-WATT Univer­sity’s new Malaysian (HWUM) cam­pus of­fers a range of cour­ses from foun­da­tion to bach­e­lor’s de­gree and post­grad­u­ate masters pro­grammes.

The dis­ci­plines of­fered at the Malaysian cam­pus ad­dress key growth ar­eas in busi­ness, man­age­ment, con­struc­tion, ac­tu­ar­ial sci­ence, and en­gi­neer­ing spe­cialisms in­clud­ing petroleum, chemical, me­chan­i­cal and re­new­able en­ergy.

He­riot-Watt is among the top 10 uni­ver­si­ties in Bri­tain for Ac­tu­ar­ial Math­e­mat­ics, Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Chem­istry, Chemical En­gi­neer­ing, Civil En­gi­neer­ing, Math­e­mat­ics, Me­chan­i­cal En­gi­neer­ing, Physics and Psy­chol­ogy.

A HWUM de­gree is highly val­ued by em­ploy­ers and will equip you with the skills to op­er­ate glob­ally.

HWUM’s newly es­tab­lished state-of-the-art, green cam­pus in Pu­tra­jaya of­fers Malaysians an af­ford­able and ac­ces­si­ble op­tion to gain a glob­ally recog­nised Bri­tish de­gree.

The lake­side flag­ship cam­pus is sit­u­ated in Pu­tra­jaya and is less than 20 min­utes from Kuala Lumpur. It has ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties de­signed for ef­fec­tive learn­ing.

“For many stu­dents, it will be just like go­ing to the UK for their de­gree with­out hav­ing to leave all the ben­e­fits of home,” says chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer and Provost of HWUM, Prof Robert Craik.

“The Pu­tra­jaya cam­pus stu­dents will be get­ting a global ed­u­ca­tion with a UK de­gree from a highly ranked univer­sity with a 200-year her­itage. They will be taught by a highly qual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced fac­ulty.

“The cour­ses and ex­ams con­ducted in Malaysia will be iden­ti­cal. We are also get­ting the best aca­demics for the cam­pus and would not hire any­one for Malaysia which we would not also hire for our Ed­in­burgh cam­pus.”

The tu­ition fees are set at com­pet­i­tively ac­ces­si­ble lev­els for Malaysians and those in the sur­round­ing re­gions.

The over­all cost of ob­tain­ing a Masters de­gree in Malaysia is around 60% of the cost of ob­tain­ing the same de­gree in Bri­tain. There are also gen­er­ous scholarships avail­able.
