A strong cur­ricu­lum

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

UNIVER­SITI Tunku Ab­dul Rah­man ( UTAR), one of the premier pri­vate univer­si­ties in Malaysia, is com­mit­ted to ex­cel­lence in qual­ity and af­ford­able education.

UTAR foun­da­tion pro­grammes pre­pare stu­dents to cope with their de­gree pro­gramme of choice and of­fer the short­est path to progress to un­der­grad­u­ate stud­ies within a year.

Of­fered by UTAR’s Cen­tre for Foun­da­tion Stud­ies ( CFS), stu­dents can choose to pur­sue ei­ther in Foun­da­tion in Arts or Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence.

For Foun­da­tion in Arts, stu­dents can choose ei­ther the Arts and So­cial Sci­ence Stream or the Man­age­ment and Ac­coun­tancy Stream; while Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence stu­dents can choose be­tween the Phys­i­cal Sci­ence stream and Bi­o­log­i­cal Sci­ence stream. They can then progress to over 65 un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes.

CFS Sun­gai Long cam­pus di­rec­tor Melissa Ste­fanie Netto says, “Our pro­grammes foster a well- bal­anced and holis­tic education pro­vid­ing a wide range of knowl­edge.

“Since most of the stu­dents think that foun­da­tion pro­grammes are too packed and chal­leng­ing, I would like to say that the pain of learn­ing new things does not hurt you, but pre­pares you for the fu­ture.”

CFS Kam­par Cam­pus di­rec­tor Tan Lee Siew adds: “The qual­i­fied and com­mit­ted teach­ing staff, avail­abil­ity and in­cor­po­ra­tion of on­line learn­ing en­vi­ron­ments and well- equipped fa­cil­i­ties as a whole pro­vide stu­dents an en­vi­ron­ment that is more ef­fec­tive and con­ducive to learn­ing.”

The univer­sity pro­motes ex­cel­lence by pro­vid­ing schol­ar­ships to stu­dents with out­stand­ing aca­demic per­for­mance to pur­sue their foun­da­tion and un­der­grad­u­ate pro­grammes.

Stu­dents who ob­tain 7A’s and above in SPM will have their tu­ition fees waived for their foun­da­tion pro­gramme.

UTAR takes heart in the well- be­ing of stu­dents. Stu­dents can seek coun­selling ser­vices from the Depart­ment of Stu­dent Affairs ( DSA) at their cam­pus. In ad­di­tion, ev­ery stu­dent in Foun­da­tion Stud­ies will be as­signed an aca­demic ad­vi­sor.

In con­junc­tion with the May stu­dent in­take, UTAR is invit­ing school- leavers to UTAR Open Day on March 19 and 20 ( Satur­day and Sun­day), 9am- 5pm at UTAR Sun­gai Long in Ban­dar Sun­gai Long and UTAR Kam­par Cam­pus in Perak.

UTAR is also hav­ing ex­tended coun­selling hours at the Sun­gai Long and Kam­par Cam­puses daily start­ing from March 12 till June 12, 9am- 5pm ( ex­clud­ing pub­lic hol­i­days).
