BAC’s haul of awards
BRICKFIELDS Asia College is a one-stopcentre for legal education that has built a reputation as the nation’s No.1 law school. An accolade it received was the Best Brand in Legal Education 2012 from the prestigious BrandLaureate.
In the last two years, 63 first class LLB (Hons) degrees have been awarded to BAC students. They were also awarded the King’s College Scholarship three times in the past five years for the University of London International programmes.
Students can opt to pursue their LLB (Hons) via the University of London International Programmes, the only external law degree recognised by the Legal Professional Qualifying Board. This 3+0 programme allows students to complete all three years of study at BAC, one of the few affiliate centres for the UOL (University of London) Law programme in Malaysia.
BAC also offers the UK Transfer Degree (UKT) Programme (Law) – study in Malaysia for the first two years before transferring to one of BAC’s prestigious partner universities in the United Kingdom for the remainder of the course.
Preceded by BAC’s 11-month A-Level Express Route, the UKT programme lets students graduate up to two years earlier, making BAC the fastest and smartest way to over 50 UK Law or Business degrees. As testament to the quality of BAC’s A-Level programme, Kong Xin Qing scored 4A*s while both Lau Foong Yee and Thiagu Naidu scored 3A*s and six other students scored straight As in the 2013 examinations. Two BAC students also received the Outstanding Cambridge Learner Awards in 2012.
After obtaining a degree in Law, graduates may pursue the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP). BAC has won more awards in the CLP than all other colleges in Malaysia put together.
At the 2012 CLP Convocation, BAC students secured the Top Student in Malaysia Prize for the eighth year in a row and also made an unprecedented clean sweep of all six book prizes awarded for best performance in individual subjects.
BAC also offers various specialist law programmes such as the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), LLMs (Master of Laws) and the recently launched Professional Law Series (PLS).
BAC constantly strives to give students the best in education. In recognition of this, 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.
BAC has the largest law faculty in Malaysia, consisting of highly qualified lecturers and experienced practitioners. Its state-of-the-art facilities include exclusive online resources. Students also receive free study materials.
BAC’s city campus comprises three premises, one of which is the RM10mil state-of-the-art student resource centre. In addition, the college operates two luxurious, reasonably priced student accommodations – Mutiara Residency and the new RM15mil BAC Residences.
BAC’s aggressive expansion plans has resulted in a new RM80mil campus in the heart of Petaling Jaya, launched earlier this year. It offers the same programmes as the Brickfields campus and promises students the best of cutting-edge facilities.
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 zero interest instalment payment schemes, PTPTN loans and EPF withdrawals.
