Amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at APU

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

THE Asia Pa­cific Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy and In­no­va­tion ( APU) is among Malaysia’s Premier Pri­vate Univer­si­ties, and is where a unique fu­sion of tech­nol­ogy, in­no­va­tion and cre­ativ­ity works ef­fec­tively to­wards pre­par­ing pro­fes­sional grad­u­ates for the com­pet­i­tive cor­po­rate mar­ket glob­ally.

APU has earned an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion as an award- win­ning univer­sity through its achieve­ments in win­ning a host of pres­ti­gious awards at na­tional and in­ter­na­tional lev­els.

With an in­ter­na­tional stu­dent com­mu­nity of more than 110 coun­tries study­ing in the Malaysian cam­pus, APU of­fers a truly cos­mopoli­tan learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment that pre­pares stu­dents well for the global chal­lenges ahead.

APU of­fers a wide range of de­grees with tech­nol­ogy as a com­mon core. It is APU’s aim to nur­ture and en­cour­age in­no­va­tion through pro­grammes, with the in­ten­tion of pro­duc­ing in­di­vid­u­als who will learn, adapt and think dif­fer­ently in new, bet­ter ways. Be­ing a univer­sity stu­dent can be one of your most ex­cit­ing ex­pe­di­tions.

APU in­te­grates fun and cre­ativ­ity into reg­u­lar- based learn­ing, both in­side and out­side the class­room.

Higher education opens up a world of new ideas, in­tel­lec­tual growth, so­cial, sport­ing and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties, new ad­ven­tures and the build­ing of life­long friend­ships.

APU has more than 40 clubs and so­ci­eties and the stu­dent life is lively and unique. It en­cour­ages its stu­dents to ex­plore ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ences and the wide range of so­cial, sport­ing and cul­tural ac­tiv­i­ties on cam­pus.

Be­sides that, APU lec­tur­ers and staff are al­ways will­ing to fa­cil­i­tate and guide the stu­dents. APU of­fers many op­por­tu­ni­ties to get in­volved in stu­dent life such as:

> Be­com­ing a mem­ber of a club or so­ci­ety or start your own – an ideal way to make new friends, end­less en­ter­tain­ment and learn­ing.

> Mak­ing a dif­fer­ence by stand­ing for elec­tion in the Stu­dents’ Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil.

> Work­ing while study­ing – APU has on- cam­pus, part- time work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dents as li­brary as­sis­tants, IT lab tech­ni­cal as­sis­tants, pro­gram­mers, mul­ti­me­dia de­vel­op­ers, or as stu­dent am­bas­sadors.

Those se­lected get hands- on ex­pe­ri­ences in work­ing with those of di­verse cul­ture, in­duc­ing a cor­po­rate work­ing en­vi­ron­ment in their mind­set even be­fore grad­u­a­tion.

Be­sides that, the stu­dents are also con­stantly ex­posed to pro­fes­sional and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment free work­shops, de­signed to ac­quire nec­es­sary skills and at­tributes needed to be­come highly de­manded grad­u­ates in the mar­ket.

Th­ese are just a few ways for you to make your time at APU as ful­fill­ing and ex­cit­ing as pos­si­ble.

Hav­ing a univer­sity de­gree is no longer a guar­an­tee of se­cur­ing a highly paid job, but both the ex­pe­ri­ence and the abil­ity to con­trib­ute to the or­gan­i­sa­tion are mainly de­manded by em­ploy­ers.

Upon com­ple­tion at APU, grad­u­ates are awarded a de­gree in as­so­ci­a­tion with Stafford­shire Un­ver­sity, plus the ex­pe­ri­ence and pro­fes­sion­al­ism re­quired for a suc­cess­ful ca­reer.

APU’s long- term mis­sion and vi­sion is to pro­vide ac­cess to world- class education to a broad spec­trum of Malaysian stu­dents.

As part of its con­tin­u­ous ef­forts to pro­vide bet­ter op­por­tu­ni­ties to pur­sue higher education at Malaysia’s award- win­ning univer­sity, APU of­fers de­serv­ing and tal­ented school- leavers a wide range of merit schol­ar­ships.

All SPM, STPM and UEC stu­dents who are el­i­gi­ble can ap­ply ac­cord­ingly.

APU also pro­vides East Malaysia Com­mu­nity Schol­ar­ships to SPM, STPM and UEC Qual­i­fi­ca­tions from Sabah and Sarawak schools.
