The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION & FURTHER STUDIES FAIR -

WHILE you may have plans to fund your stud­ies your­self by us­ing your sav­ings or through your fam­ily, it is worth check­ing for in­sti­tu­tions that of­fer schol­ar­ships and other fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance. The best time to look for fi­nan­cial sup­port would be be­fore you start your course.

In­fra­struc­ture Univer­sity Kuala Lumpur ( IUKL) un­der­stands that education is a se­ri­ous in­vest­ment and get­ting the right fi­nan­cial sup­port could be a strug­gle for some. Its mis­sion is to pro­vide qual­ity, recog­nised and af­ford­able education for all.

Be­fore you pick your course, find out how any of its six types of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance can help you. More than 6,000 stu­dents have ben­e­fited from the fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance of­fered by IUKL.

IUKL schol­ar­ships

IUKL schol­ar­ships are made avail­able to stu­dents who have ex­celled at the el­e­men­tary lev­els, in­clud­ing SPM, STPM, O- Level, A- Level, UEC, Foun­da­tion Stud­ies and Diploma.

With a min­i­mum of 5As in the SPM or O- Level, you are en­ti­tled to a 50% schol­ar­ship. With 8As and above, you are en­ti­tled to a full schol­ar­ship. For STPM or A- Level stu­dents, you only need a min­i­mum CGPA of 3.00 to en­joy the 50% schol­ar­ships and 3.50 for full schol­ar­ship. Diploma and foun­da­tion grad­u­ates will need a min­i­mum CGPA of 3.50 to be el­i­gi­ble for the par­tial schol­ar­ship and 3.75 and above for the full schol­ar­ship. As for stu­dents with UEC, 3As will en­ti­tle you to a 50% schol­ar­ship and 5As for full schol­ar­ship.

IUKL- Me­dia Education Fund Schol­ar­ship

In ad­di­tion to the IUKL Schol­ar­ship, the univer­sity also col­lab­o­rates with two ma­jor me­dia education funds, in­clud­ing The Star Education Fund and Sin Chew Education Fund, to pro­vide de­serv­ing stu­dents an op­por­tu­nity to pur­sue higher education. The schol­ar­ships pro­vided cover mul­ti­ple dis­ci­plines at the diploma and de­gree level. The best fea­ture of th­ese schol­ar­ships is that they are all bond- free.

IUKL Sports Ex­cel­lence Schol­ar­ships

The IUKL Sports Ex­cel­lence Schol­ar­ship is of­fered to stu­dents with out­stand­ing sports achieve­ment at the state and na­tional lev­els. This schol­ar­ship is for Malaysian stu­dents who have rep­re­sented the state or the coun­try in any sports com­pe­ti­tion, three years prior to join­ing IUKL.

It is also of­fered to in­ter­na­tional stu­dents who have rep­re­sented their coun­try in any sports com­pe­ti­tion, three years prior to join­ing IUKL.

Malaysian stu­dents are en­ti­tled to a 100% waiver on tu­ition fee, while in­ter­na­tional stu­dents are en­ti­tled to a 50% waiver on

tu­ition fee through­out their study in IUKL.

Tu­ition fee waiver

It pays to study hard at IUKL. In ad­di­tion to the schol­ar­ships, the IUKL Tu­ition Fee Waiver Scheme is of­fered ev­ery se­mes­ter. The scheme of­fers up to 60% off the se­mes­ter tu­ition fee for stu­dents who main­tain a CGPA of 3.750 and above ev­ery se­mes­ter. A 30% tu­ition fee waiver awaits you in the com­ing se­mes­ter if you score a CGPA of 3.50 to 3.749.

This en­cour­ages stu­dents to ex­cel in their stud­ies, and to re­duce the fi­nan­cial bur­den of stu­dents and par­ents.

Study loans

Be­ing a full- fledged univer­sity, IUKL’s pro­grammes are fully ap­proved by the Min­istry of Education ( MOE) and the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA). Most pro­grammes have also at­tained ei­ther par­tial or full ac­cred­i­ta­tion from MQA.

With this ad­van­tage, stu­dents are el­i­gi­ble for study loans from PTPTN and fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance from state foun­da­tions.

Flex­i­ble pay­ment scheme

The fee struc­ture at IUKL is de­signed to ease the bur­den of stu­dents. The tu­ition fees per se­mes­ter can be paid by flex­i­ble in­stal­ment. Pay­ments can be done through­out the se­mes­ter but the lat­est pay­ment must be made within two weeks be­fore the se­mes­ter ex­am­i­na­tion.
