Getting the right head start
Taylor’s University offers a range of foundation courses for school-leavers. It aims to empower each student that comes through its doors with the best education for them.
With that in mind, Taylor’s University has started offering foundation courses across seven disciplines, namely architecture, Business, Communication, Computing, Design, Engineering and sciences (offered to students interested in Biosciences, Medicine and Pharmacy).
By signing up for these yearlong courses, students will be on the shortest path to their career of choice.
For those who have a clear idea of the field they would like to pursue, the foundation courses offer a head start and allow them to be exposed to subjects that are beneficial for their degree programme.
at Taylor’s University, the educational focus is student-centric and Taylor’s strives to heighten students’ experience while ensuring they acquire skills that will help them in the future.
Taylor’s vice-chancellor and president Professor Datuk Dr Hassan said said: “Having a university degree is no longer the sole criteria to succeed in career or even to secure a job upon graduation. students must be equipped with soft skills to succeed in the working world and most importantly be prepared to compete locally and internationally.
“To address this need, Taylor’s has put into place various initiatives to produce graduates who can shine in their future workplaces and contribute towards nation building.”
some of the initiatives available to those who enrol in foundationlevel courses are the Integrated science Project, which implements research skills and scientific concepts and balances learning outcomes with hands-on experimentations, exposure to current trends and development through the “learning from Experts” initiative and “First year Experience”, which provide students with the support to adjust to university life and help them excel in both academic and extra-curricular activities.
additionally, Taylor’s provides all its students structured academic assistance through the Peer assisted learning services (Pals).
By subscribing to the Pals programme, new Taylor’s students will be able to take advantage of a senior who will mentor them through their first year in a small group that is relaxed, flexible and supports an informal learning environment.
additionally, senior students will instil the skills of independent learning, critical thinking, problemsolving and social interaction in their juniors.
all this has been conceptualised and implemented to provide Taylor’s students with the ability to fully use their time and be able to gain the necessary knowledge and skills for their course of choice.
Taylor’s prides itself in the delivery of a holistic education that results in not just excellent academic accomplishments but also in graduates with qualities that are highly sought-after in the global marketplace.
It prepares its graduates to be professionally competent and jobready as they possess an added edge to succeed in their careers.
This is also evident in the high employability rate of its graduates, with many securing jobs even before they have completed their final examinations.
Taylor’s also believes in providing access to education to everyone and to that end, has over rM12mil worth of scholarships and bursaries available.
