The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

WITH over half a cen­tury of ed­u­ca­tional ties be­tween Malaysia and the UK, there is no doubt more stu­dents are seek­ing bet­ter qual­ity education be­yond Malaysian shores.

Stu­dents seek­ing a UK education in art can now pur­sue it lo­cally at The One Academy, Ban­dar Sun­way cam­pus.

To­gether with a prom­i­nent part­ner from the UK, the Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire, The One Academy has been of­fer­ing three 3+ 0 De­gree pro­grammes in the past cou­ple of years – the Bach­e­lor of Art ( Hon­ours) in Graphic De­sign, Bach­e­lor of Art ( Hon­ours) in In­ter­ac­tive Me­dia De­sign and Bach­e­lor of Art ( Hon­ours) in In­te­rior Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign.

Top rank­ing

Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire is ranked in the top 4% of univer­si­ties world­wide based on the Times Higher Education rank­ings.

It was cho­sen as an education part­ner as it is renowned for its dis­tinc­tive busi­ness- savvy education in var­i­ous dis­ci­plines.

Cou­pled with The One Academy’s edge in prac­ti­cal skills and cre­ative prow­ess, this re­sults in a col­lab­o­ra­tion that not only cul­ti­vates stu­dents who are able to cre­ate qual­ity work but also skil­ful at im­ple­ment­ing cre­ative ideas.

What makes th­ese de­gree pro­grammes dif­fer­ent from other col­leges?

Ac­cord­ing to The One Academy prin­ci­pal and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Tat­sun Hoi, “In line with our Masters Train Masters phi­los­o­phy, the key is to of­fer an in­ter­na­tional qual­ity education based on in­dus­try- driven syl­labuses and prac­ti­cal- coach­ing ap­proach.

“Our UK De­sign De­gree Pro­grammes are the ex­ten­sion of our long­stand­ing em­pha­sis of su­pe­rior qual­ity education and train­ing with real in­dus­try rel­e­vance.

“With strong in­dus­try links from both in­sti­tu­tions and firm ground­work cul­ti­vated by in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als, I am con­fi­dent stu­dents will ben­e­fit im­mensely from such an in­ter­na­tional de­gree.”

Ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ship

Such an education al­liance def­i­nitely ben­e­fits the young as­pir­ing cre­ative tal­ents of this re­gion.

Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire School of Art and De­sign head Judy Glas­man con­curred, “By bring­ing to­gether ex­pe­ri­ences of two long­stand­ing and very suc­cess­ful art and de­sign in­sti­tu­tions, this part­ner­ship be­tween the Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire, UK, and The One Academy, Malaysia, will cer­tainly en­hance the train­ing and education avail­able for young peo­ple at de­gree level.”

On the Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire, Glas­man said, “The univer­sity has a strong rep­u­ta­tion for good qual­ity education on an in­ter­na­tional scale and the com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise of the Univer­sity of Hert­ford­shire and The One Academy will gen­er­ate a bet­ter, deeper ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence as well as an av­enue for stu­dents to get in­ter­na­tional per­spec­tives on de­sign, me­dia and com­mu­ni­ca­tions.”

Th­ese 3+ 0 UK De­gree pro­grammes are also catered to meet the needs of par­ents.

With the pro­grammes con­ducted at The One Academy cam­pus in Ban­dar Sun­way, th­ese de­grees save up to two- thirds of what would nor­mally cost if one opts to study in the UK.

Great op­por­tu­ni­ties
