The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

rE­GENT In­ter­na­tional Schools be­gan as a con­cept that qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion need not be ex­pen­sive and should be within reach of the gen­eral pub­lic.

The first Re­gent In­ter­na­tional School be­gan in Klang in June 2011. The founders’ firm be­lief that qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion would be wel­comed by con­cerned par­ents proved right and the school grew dy­nam­i­cally.

In keep­ing with this vi­sion, Re­gent In­ter­na­tional School de­cided to part­ner with North­ern Con­sor­tium (NCUK), a con­sor­tium of leading uni­ver­si­ties in the United King­dom, to of­fer the In­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion Year.

The NCUK In­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion Year (IFY) was first of­fered in Malaysia in 1987 through MARA In­sti­tute of Tech­nol­ogy and has suc­cess­fully placed over 20,000 stu­dents into UK uni­ver­si­ties.

NCUK pro­grammes are now of­fered in 10 coun­tries and the num­ber is grow­ing. Re­gent is poised to con­tinue of­fer­ing the IFY to stu­dents from Malaysia and around the re­gion.

The NCUK IFY gives stu­dents ac­cess to a wide range of uni­ver­si­ties, leading to over 2,000 de­gree pro­grammes at uni­ver­si­ties in the UK and around the world, mak­ing this a glob­ally por­ta­ble qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

The NCUK IFY is a mod­u­lar pro­gramme that pre­pares stu­dents for first year en­try to un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree cour­ses. Can­di­dates have a choice of streams in Busi­ness, En­gi­neer­ing, Hu­man­i­ties and Sci­ence and will study a com­bi­na­tion of mod­ules that fit in with their de­gree des­ti­na­tion.

For the pe­riod of about one year and cost­ing less than RM20,000, the IFY in Malaysia saves you time and money. It’s one of the least ex­pen­sive routes to a good univer­sity over­seas.

Pro­gramme man­ager Si­mone Gel­lie said, “Not only will suc­cess­ful IFY grad­u­ates be el­i­gi­ble to en­ter highly ranked UK uni­ver­si­ties, other world­class uni­ver­si­ties around the world will ac­cept qual­i­fied stu­dents into the first year of de­gree pro­grammes. This speaks vol­umes of the in­ter­na­tional qual­ity of the IFY.”
