Build­ing a solid base

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

NOWA­DAYS, most stu­dents’ only plan is to fur­ther their study; how­ever they are doubt­ful on the course they should take.

To pre­pare stu­dents for the ba­sic in any field for de­gree level, a pre- univer­sity pro­gramme is the best op­tion, es­pe­cially Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence at Pres­i­dent Col­lege.

Stu­dents will be di­vided into two main streams – Med­i­cal and Al­lied Health Sci­ence or En­gi­neer­ing.

The Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence is an in­ten­sive one- year prepara­tory course fully ac­cred­ited by Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA).

Upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion, stu­dents can progress to lo­cal or for­eign in­sti­tu­tions.

Through this pro­gramme, stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to learn sub­jects based on their de­gree, which saves time and en­ables them to know in- depth about their stud­ies and nec­es­sary core sub­jects for their de­gree op­tion.

It is tailored for stu­dents who are con­fi­dent of their cho­sen path and com­mit­ted to at­tain­ing the best prepa­ra­tion for a sci­ence- based univer­sity de­gree pro­gramme.

The Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence has spe­cially de­signed mod­ule path­ways in biomed­i­cal sci­ence, bio­science, biotech­nol­ogy, com­puter sci­ence, ge­og­ra­phy, psy­chol­ogy and phar­macy as well as math­e­mat­ics, chem­istry and bi­ol­ogy.

Stu­dents also will be given ex­tra sup­port in English lan­guage and study skills.

To­gether with plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­ter­act with stu­dents and staff, stu­dents will be given the chance to fully ex­plore the Fac­ulty of Sci­ence.

The course is taught by highly ex­pe­ri­enced lec­tur­ers. Many suc­cess­ful sto­ries of for­mer stu­dents pro­gress­ing to var­i­ous de­gree op­tions found that the ex­tra ef­fort and hard work put in dur­ing the one- year course has given them ex­tra ben­e­fits.

The min­i­mum CGPA to move on to de­gree stud­ies is 3.00.

Each stu­dent also has his own ded­i­cated men­tor.

For en­try to this pro­gramme, stu­dents need to com­plete SPM, O- Lev­els or equiv­a­lent with 5Cs for SPM and O- Lev­els. To move on to a de­gree in Al­lied Health Sci­ence, 5Bs for Bi­ol­ogy, Chem­istry, Physics, Math­e­mat­ics or Ad­di­tional Math­e­mat­ics and an­other one sub­ject are needed.

How­ever, for En­gi­neer­ing and other Sci­ence Streams, only 5Cs in SPM is needed.

This pro­gramme has a bal­anced as­sess­ment with 50% course­work and 50% ex­am­i­na­tion. To­gether with its af­ford­able fees, the Foun­da­tion in Sci­ence has a high- qual­ity cur­ricu­lum and of­fers three start dates across the year. Pres­i­dent Col­lege also pro­vides the lat­est in terms of education tech­nol­ogy and stu­dent sup­port.

Be­ing in the education in­dus­try for over nine years, Pres­i­dent Col­lege has been pro­vid­ing qual­ity education and ex­cel­lent pro­fes­sional ser­vices in var­i­ous fields.

It is rated as five- star in the Malaysian Qual­ity Eval­u­a­tion Sys­tem for Pri­vate Col­lege ( MyQUEST) 2012/ 2013 and SME Ser­vice Ex­cel­lence Award 2015.
