Smart way to suc­cess

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

BRICK­FIELDS Asia Col­lege ( BAC) has es­tab­lished it­self as the fastest and smartest way to more than 100 UK de­grees.

Hav­ing part­ner­ships and af­fil­i­a­tions with more than 25 UK univer­si­ties and pro­fes­sional or­gan­i­sa­tions, BAC of­fers its stu­dents ac­cess to more than 100 world- class de­grees and pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions that can be com­pleted ei­ther lo­cally or abroad.

Known as the na­tion’s No. 1 law school, BAC’s stu­dents have ob­tained ex­cel­lent re­sults in un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate stud­ies.

Over the past four years alone, BAC has pro­duced more than 600 world and na­tional top stu­dents, book prize win­ners, and first- class and se­cond- class- up­per grad­u­ates.

The Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions ( CIE) A- Lev­els is the most recog­nised pre- univer­sity pro­gramme in the world.

Stu­dents can se­lect from a wide range of A- Lev­els sub­jects that BAC of­fers, in­clud­ing bi­ol­ogy, chem­istry, law, eco­nom­ics, ac­count­ing, English lit­er­a­ture and math­e­mat­ics.

They can then progress to a va­ri­ety of de­gree pro­grammes in law, busi­ness, medicine, fi­nance, en­gi­neer­ing or com­mu­ni­ca­tion, among oth­ers.

Stu­dents look­ing for­ward to get­ting a head start in their ca­reers will find the BAC A- Lev­els Ex­press Route the per­fect op­tion for them.

This unique pro­gramme, cou­pled with BAC’s UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme in law or busi­ness, al­lows stu­dents to grad­u­ate up to two years ahead of their peers.

Since 2010, BAC’s A- Lev­els stu­dents have been awarded the Top in the World Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Awards for Law and Busi­ness Stud­ies four times, with three con­sec­u­tive wins in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

In 2014, BAC stu­dents swept the Top in the World Cam­bridge Out­stand­ing Learner Awards for Law, Busi­ness Stud­ies and Eco­nom­ics.

Al­ter­na­tively, stu­dents can en­rol in the Foun­da­tion in Arts, which is a one- year pro­gramme de­signed to pro­vide stu­dents with the level of aca­demic lit­er­acy, skills and con­fi­dence to pur­sue an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree in the arts, hu­man­i­ties and so­cial sci­ences.

At the un­der­grad­u­ate level, 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 pro­gramme al­lows stu­dents to com­plete all three years of study in Malaysia.

BAC also of­fers the UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme ( Law) where stu­dents can choose to com­plete ei­ther the 1+ 2 ( one year at BAC and two years at a part­ner univer­sity) or 2+ 1 ( two years at BAC and one year at a part­ner univer­sity) op­tion, de­pend­ing on their pref­er­ence.

Upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion of the pro­gramme, stu­dents will be awarded an LLB ( Hons) de­gree from the re­spec­tive univer­sity.

Stu­dents grad­u­at­ing with a de­gree from a part­ner univer­sity will be ac­corded UK Qual­i­fy­ing sta­tus, mak­ing them el­i­gi­ble for the Bar Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Course.

In­di­vid­u­als in­tend­ing to prac­tise law with this de­gree can thus em­bark on ei­ther the Bar Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Course in the UK or the Cer­tifi­cate in Le­gal Prac­tice in Malaysia.

At the un­der­grad­u­ate level, BAC has pro­duced 99 first- class LLB ( Hons) grad­u­ates over the past four years.

At the post­grad­u­ate level, BAC stu­dents have se­cured 10 con­sec­u­tive Tun Hamid Omar Foun­da­tion Awards for Best Over­all CLP Stu­dent in Malaysia, 55 out of 69 book prizes and 56 out of 71 se­cond- class up­pers awarded in the CLP ( Cer­tifi­cate in Le­gal Prac­tice) ex­am­i­na­tions since 2005.

The UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme ( Busi­ness) of­fer stu­dents de­grees, rang­ing from busi­ness man­age­ment, ac­count­ing and fi­nance to the more un­con­ven­tional lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain man­age­ment, from more than 10 pres­ti­gious UK part­ner univer­si­ties.

At BAC, stu­dents in­ter­ested in ac­count­ing can en­rol in the UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme ( Ac­count­ing & Fi­nance), which of­fers de­grees in ac­count­ing and fi­nance from four pres­ti­gious UK part­ner univer­si­ties as well as pro­fes­sional qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

Th­ese pro­fes­sional ac­count­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions are the Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tant qual­i­fi­ca­tion by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants ( ACCA) and the Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tant qual­i­fi­ca­tion by the Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants ( CIMA).

BAC’s Kuala Lumpur cam­pus com­prises three premises that are within walk­ing dis­tance of one an­other and equipped with state- of- the- art fa­cil­i­ties for teach­ing and learn­ing.

The BAC 2 build­ing houses an im­pres­sive law li­brary, lecture halls, state- of- the- art com­puter lab­o­ra­to­ries, a gym, dance stu­dio, moot court, cafe­te­ria and the Sky Gar­den rooftop café.

Since 2013, BAC has in­vested more than RM110mil in its new Pe­tal­ing Jaya cam­pus, which in­cludes a com­pre­hen­sive li­brary and re­search cen­tre, com­puter lab­o­ra­to­ries, moot court, the BAC­te­ria food court, TWS Café, Rock Academy mu­sic school and the Mon­ster Fit health and well­ness cen­tre.

Th­ese fa­cil­i­ties pro­vide an en­gag­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to stu­dents look­ing to have a bal­ance be­tween study­ing and lead­ing a fun stu­dent life.

To cater to out­sta­tion stu­dents, BAC op­er­ates a lux­u­ri­ous but rea­son­ably priced stu­dent res­i­dence called The Man­sion. This high- end con­do­minium is equipped with a gym and bar­be­cue ar­eas and can house close to 600 stu­dents.

The pro­grammes at BAC are now open for reg­is­tra­tion.
