The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

AC­CORD­ING to a re­cent news re­port, the United States (US) re­tained its long-stand­ing po­si­tion as the world’s top host na­tion for in­ter­na­tional stu­dents.

The US Am­bas­sador to Malaysia Ka­mala Shirin Lakhd­hir said there was an 8.3% in­crease in the num­ber of Malaysians study­ing in the US over last year.

Lakhd­hir also said in­ter­na­tional stu­dents will ben­e­fit from di­verse com­mu­ni­ties across col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties in the US as it pro­vides op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­pand world views through in­ter­ac­tion and en­gage­ment with stu­dents from var­i­ous eth­nic, re­li­gious and geo­graph­i­cal back­grounds.

It helps to pre­pare stu­dents for shared, suc­cess­ful fu­tures in an in­ter­con­nected world, she added.


Many uni­ver­si­ties across the US also joined in the #YouAreWel­comeHere cam­paign to en­cour­age in­ter­na­tional stu­dents to en­rol in their ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions.

SEGi Uni­ver­sity and Col­leges helps stu­dents earn an Amer­i­can de­gree from pres­ti­gious US uni­ver­si­ties.

Through SEGi’s Amer­i­can De­gree Pro­gram (ADP), stu­dents are given sev­eral op­tions to com­plete their pre­ferred pro­grams here.

SEGi part­ners with pres­ti­gious and top-notch US uni­ver­si­ties, of­fer­ing a glob­alised learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to stu­dents.

This en­sures its pro­grammes are reg­u­lated by the uni­ver­sity part­ners on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

Malaysian stu­dents can ex­pect the same qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion at SEGi that they will ob­tain at the US campus.

SEGi in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Troy Uni­ver­sity, voted as one of the best uni­ver­si­ties in the south-east of US by The Prince­ton Re­view, of­fers three flex­i­bly de­signed four-year cour­ses with a va­ri­ety of ma­jors and mi­nors to al­low stu­dents to switch their ma­jors even af­ter study­ing a num­ber of sub­jects:

– Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion (Global Busi­ness Ma­jor)

– Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Arts (Pro­mo­tion or Psy­chol­ogy Mi­nor)

– Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Psy­chol­ogy (Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stud­ies or Global Gen­eral Busi­ness Mi­nor)

SEGi’s ADP is an af­ford­able al­ter­na­tive for those who wish to earn an Amer­i­can de­gree with­out hav­ing to fork out ex­ces­sive tu­ition fees by choos­ing the 4+0 op­tion.

They will be able to ex­pe­ri­ence block teach­ing by visiting lec­tur­ers from Troy Uni­ver­sity for se­lected sub­jects.

Stu­dents have new trans­fer op­tions to four other pres­ti­gious US uni­ver­si­ties to earn an aca­demic qual­i­fi­ca­tion.

The Uni­ver­sity of Al­bany SUNY is among the top Amer­i­can re­search uni­ver­si­ties in 2015 and of­fers scholarships up to USD$4,000 ex­clu­sively for SEGi stu­dents with CGPA above 3.0.

Those un­de­cided on their un­der­grad­u­ate ma­jors can check out Min­nesota State Uni­ver­sity, Mankato for a wide range of na­tion­ally com­pet­i­tive pro­grammes.

For top-notch busi­ness ed­u­ca­tion, the Uni­ver­sity of Toledo of­fers af­ford­able tu­ition fees for SEGi stu­dents.

On top of that, scholarships up to USD$9,200 per aca­demic year are avail­able for SEGians with a min­i­mum CGPA of 3.0 on ad­mis­sion and, is re­new­able.
