Qual­ity cour­ses

“ED­U­CA­TION is not prepa­ra­tion for life; ed­u­ca­tion is life it­self,” says John Dewey. This is true for the stu­dents in Uni­tar In­ter­na­tional Uni­ver­sity (Uni­tar). As a stu­dent, life is con­sumed by rush­ing and try­ing to ob­tain ed­u­ca­tion goals while at­tempt­ing to cram in as much en­ter­tain­ment as would fit.

Aca­demics aside, life in the city is some­thing to be ex­plored at least once and what bet­ter time than as a uni­ver­sity stu­dent?

Sur­rounded by the ne­ces­si­ties of city life – be it the shop­ping com­plex, ameni­ties or the lesser flaunted nightlife – the un­der­grad­u­ate and grad­u­ate stu­dents of Uni­tar en­joy ac­ces­si­ble, af­ford­able and con­ve­nient av­enues for en­ter­tain­ment.

Be­ing a stu­dent is syn­ony­mous with chas­ing dead­lines. In the face of lec­tures, course re­quire­ments and exam prepa­ra­tions, stu­dents also man­age to have some time to re­lax and un­wind, largely due to the avail­able ameni­ties close by.

From round-the-clock restau­rants and cafes where dead­lines can be met while drink­ing cof­fee to flex­i­ble as­sign­ments, Uni­tar­i­ans have ac­cess to a wide range of pro­grammes where their cre­ativ­ity and zest for life can be utilised to their full po­ten­tial.

Hav­ing the cam­pus sit­u­ated in the mid­dle of a vi­brant com­mu­nity, most Uni­tar­i­ans have the op­por­tu­nity to in­volve them­selves in com­mu­nity while at­tend­ing to their ed­u­ca­tion so they do not feel en­tirely in­su­lated by the time they grad­u­ate.

Uni­tar of­fers a wide range of pro­grammes un­der its schools and fac­ul­ties – Asia Grad­u­ate School of Busi­ness, Grad­u­ate School of Ed­u­ca­tion, Fac­ulty of Busi­ness Tech­nol­ogy and Ac­count­ing, Fac­ulty of Culi­nary and Tourism, Fac­ulty of Ed­u­ca­tion and Hu­man­i­ties and Uni­tar Foun­da­tion School. The pro­grammes are af­ford­able yet high of qual­ity. They are avail­able in full-time or part-time modes to cater for ev­ery­one’s needs – whether STPM/SPM school-leavers, home­mak­ers, work­ing adults or even pen­sion­ers.
