BAC’s haul of awards

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

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.
