Choos­ing the best

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

IN line with its mis­sion to pro­vide qual­ity education in the Malaysian and in­ter­na­tional con­text, First City Univer­sity Col­lege ( First City UC), for­merly known as KBU In­ter­na­tional Col­lege, moves a notch higher with its re­cent recog­ni­tion as a univer­sity col­lege, con­tin­u­ing the proud tra­di­tion of pro­vid­ing the best learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for its stu­dents.

Es­tab­lished in 1990 with the mis­sion of pro­vid­ing qual­ity and af­ford­able education to all, KBU grew from its ini­tial six units of four- storey shoplots to a welle­quipped pur­pose- built cam­pus in 1995. To­day, with more than two decades of achieve­ments and ex­cel­lence, First City UC is ex­pand­ing fur­ther with Phase II of its cam­pus, which is slated to com­plete by Novem­ber this year.

The new phase, which is next to the cur­rent premises, com­prises a new aca­demic block and en- suite air- con­di­tioned stu­dent ac­com­mo­da­tion. A new IT cen­tre, li­brary, food court and in­door sports fa­cil­i­ties are some of the ex­cit­ing fa­cil­i­ties of this new phase.

First City UC cur­rently con­ducts fran­chised 3+ 0 pro­grammes of its rep­utable UK part­ners – Anglia Ruskin Univer­sity ( ARU), Not­ting­ham Trent Univer­sity ( NTU) and Sh­effield Hal­lam Univer­sity ( SHU) in de­sign, en­gi­neer­ing, com­put­ing, soft­ware en­gi­neer­ing, busi­ness man­age­ment, ac­count­ing and fi­nance, on top of col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships with Ho­tel and Tourism Man­age­ment In­sti­tute, Switzer­land ( HTMi) for its hos­pi­tal­ity and tourism man­age­ment pro­grammes, School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity by the Govern­ment of Western Aus­tralia, Carl Duis­berg Cen­tren in Ger­many and Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tion in the UK for its foun­da­tion and pre- univer­sity cour­ses.

The out­stand­ing achieve­ments of its grad­u­ates and the ex­cel­lent track record the in­sti­tu­tion have been en­joy­ing are re­sults of its com­mit­ment in es­tab­lish­ing strong ties with well- known pro­fes­sional bod­ies and or­gan­i­sa­tions.
