The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - COURSE FOCUS -

BRICK­FIELDS Asia Col­lege ( BAC) has es­tab­lished it­self as one of the best ways to more than 100 UK de­grees.

With 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.

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

Stu­dents can se­lect from a wide range of A- Lev­els sub­jects that BAC of­fers, which in­cludes bi­ol­ogy, chem­istry, law, eco­nom­ics, ac­count­ing, English lit­er­a­ture and math­e­mat­ics, al­low­ing them to progress onto a va­ri­ety of de­gree pro­grammes such as law, busi­ness, medicine, fi­nance, en­gi­neer­ing or com­mu­ni­ca­tion, among oth­ers.

Stu­dents look­ing for­ward to get­ting a head start in their ca­reers can opt for the BAC A- Level Ex­press Route.

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.

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

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 a 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) pro­gramme, 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 ( BPTC).

In­di­vid­u­als in­tend­ing to prac­tise law with this de­gree can em­bark on ei­ther the BPTC in the UK or the Cer­tifi­cate in Le­gal Prac­tice in Malaysia.

The UKT De­gree Pro­gramme ( Busi­ness) of­fers stu­dents a choice of de­grees rang­ing from com­mon ones such as busi­ness man­age­ment, ac­count­ing and fi­nance to un­con­ven­tional ones such as lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain man­age­ment from more than 10 pres­ti­gious UK part­ner univer­si­ties.

At BAC, stu­dents in­ter­ested in ac­count­ing can choose from the UKT De­gree Pro­gramme ( Ac­count­ing & Fi­nance) of­fer­ing de­grees in ac­count­ing and fi­nance from four pres­ti­gious UK part­ner univer­si­ties or 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).

To­day, the Kuala Lumpur cam­pus com­prises three premises that are all within walk­ing dis­tance of one an­other and equipped with state- of- theart fa­cil­i­ties for teach­ing and learn­ing.

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

Since 2013, BAC has in­vested more than RM110mil in its 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 for stu­dents look­ing to strike 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
