An ad­mirable com­mit­ment

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

“A DIF­FER­ENT Think­ing” is the line that sets Malvern apart. It’s a line and phi­los­o­phy with ben­e­fits on both sides of the di­vide.

For Malvern, it means hav­ing the mas­tery and flex­i­bil­ity to not merely en­cour­age, but guide an un­ortho­dox ap­proach.

For stu­dents, it means hav­ing the work ethic and imag­i­na­tion to see be­yond the book. For both sides, it re­quires con­sis­tent ap­pli­ca­tion to con­stantly chal­lenge con­ven­tional norms and ex­ist­ing fron­tiers.

As part of AEC Education Plc ( listed on AIM – The Lon­don Stock Ex­change), Malvern In­ter­na­tional Academy has achieved a record of 50,000 em­ploy­able grad­u­ates over a pe­riod of 28 years. Stu­dents to­day are trained to be highly em­ploy­able through a sound ap­proach of teach­ing and learn­ing and en­sur­ing grad­u­ates evolve into qual­i­fied and com­pet­i­tive in­di­vid­u­als.

In over 28 years of pro­vid­ing high­qual­ity education and train­ing, Malvern has re­ceived the aca­demic sup­port and as­sis­tance of rep­utable education providers from In­ter­na­tional Univer­si­ties such as Leeds Beck­ett ( UK), Univer­sity of Wales ( UK) and var­i­ous pro­fes­sional bod­ies.

While busi­ness pro­grammes form a com­mon core as an en­abler across its aca­demic pro­grammes, Malvern of­fers a broad range of pro­grammes in col­lab­o­ra­tion with qual­ity part­ners like Leeds Beck­ett Univer­sity and The Univer­sity of Wales, UK, de­liv­er­ing univer­sity de­grees us­ing the same cur­ricu­lum and teach­ing, learn­ing and as­sess­ment qual­ity en­hance­ment pro­cesses as in the United King­dom.

Malvern‘ s sys­tem of education pro­duces “A Malvern Grad­u­ate” – grad­u­ates who have the key skills of em­ploy­a­bil­ity with the abil­ity to stand out in the job mar­ket.

With an in­ter­na­tional pres­ence of col­leges in the UK, Ire­land, Oman, Cyprus and Sin­ga­pore, Malvern of­fers a cos­mopoli­tan learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment, which pre­pares stu­dents well for the global chal­lenges ahead. Malvern aims to nur­ture and en­cour­age in­no­va­tion through its pro­grammes, with the in­ten­tion of pro­duc­ing in­di­vid­u­als who will learn, adapt and think dif­fer­ently in new and bet­ter ways.

The cor­ner­stone of Malvern’s suc­cess is the value placed on its strong re­la­tion­ships with part­ner univer­si­ties. Its stu­dents’ qual­i­fi­ca­tions are recog­nised from lead­ing univer­si­ties in the UK, giv­ing them con­nec­tions to de­velop al­liances, op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­la­tion­ships, par­tic­u­larly in their fi­nal year with sup­port­ing univer­si­ties.

At Malvern, you get the rea­son­able costs of a univer­sity study and all the ad­van­tages of a qual­ity bench­marked univer­sity part­ner­ship. Its goal is to make it fi­nan­cially pos­si­ble for ev­ery qual­i­fied ap­pli­cant, so that it may con­tinue to build a tal­ented and di­verse stu­dent com­mu­nity.

Most un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents can get loans to cover their fees and de­pend­ing on the fam­ily's in­come, may be en­ti­tled to PTPTN loans. In­ter­na­tional stu­dents may also be able to ac­cess fi­nan­cial sup­port from their govern­ment. Malvern also of­fers schol­ar­ships to Diploma and un­der­grad­u­ate stu­dents – non- re­payable schol­ar­ships recog­nis­ing not only aca­demic achieve­ments but also fi­nan­cial bur­den.

For prospec­tive stu­dents en­rolling in Diploma pro­grammes, it of­fers a 75% Merit schol­ar­ship of the tu­ition fees for stu­dents who achieve 5As and above in their SPM and meet­ing all en­try re­quire­ments set by Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency ( MQA).

For stu­dents with 3As and above, it of­fers a 50% Merit schol­ar­ship of tu­ition fees. For stu­dents un­der­tak­ing their de­gree stud­ies, a 50% in­tro­duc­tory schol­ar­ship will be avail­able for those who have met all univer­sity and MQA en­try re­quire­ments. The schol­ar­ship cov­ers Malvern’s pro­gramme fees.

Malvern In­ter­na­tional Academy is lo­cated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur with four ded­i­cated teach­ing sites – Malvern In­ter­na­tional City Cam­pus, Wisma 2000, Wisma Hangsam and Malvern In­ter­na­tional Sun­way Cam­pus.
