Af­ford­able qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

“HOW do you think we build a fu­ture? I think we build it by in­vest­ing in our kids and in­vest­ing in ed­u­ca­tion,” Amer­i­can aca­demic and politi­cian El­iz­a­beth War­ren once said.

First City Uni­ver­sity Col­lege (First City UC) helps you to dis­cover your bright fu­ture through the build­ing of a strong foun­da­tion from the mo­ment you first set foot in its cam­pus.

It in­vests in your ed­u­ca­tion by nur­tur­ing you to be­come a grad­u­ate who is in­dus­try-ready and able to se­cure em­ploy­ment as soon as you com­plete your ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion.

First City UC stu­dents and grad­u­ates are highly soughtafter. Many of them were of­fered jobs be­fore grad­u­at­ing while some re­ceived on-the-spot job of­fers dur­ing stu­dents’ port­fo­lio show­cases and pro­ject ex­hi­bi­tions, which were of­ten at­tended by in­dus­try rep­re­sen­ta­tives and prospec­tive em­ploy­ers.

> Foun­da­tions with path­ways to var­i­ous pro­grammes

First City UC of­fers three uni­ver­sity foun­da­tion pro­grammes, namely Foun­da­tion in Art and De­sign, Foun­da­tion in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion and Foun­da­tion in Engi­neer­ing, Science and Tech­nol­ogy.

Each of the one-year in­ten­sive course leads to fur­ther spe­cialised un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree pro­grammes in busi­ness, mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion, hospi­tal­ity and tourism man­age­ment, de­sign and built en­vi­ron­ment, engi­neer­ing and com­put­ing.

Dur­ing the year, you are re­quired to study for three semesters un­der spe­cially de­signed mod­ules to ac­quire ba­sic knowl­edge and skills you can ex­pand on when you pur­sue your de­gree pro­gramme.

These mod­ules will help you dis­cover your pas­sion and in­ter­est, af­ter which you can opt for sub­jects and elec­tive mod­ules re­lated to the dis­ci­plines you wish to spe­cialise in dur­ing the sec­ond and third semesters.

Upon com­ple­tion of the foun­da­tion course, you would be able to start your first year in the de­gree pro­gramme of your choice.
