Im­proved ex­pe­ri­ence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Course Focus -

BRICKFIELDS Asia Col­lege’s (BAC) com­mit­ment to trans­form lives through ed­u­ca­tion is an ap­proach that pre­pares its stu­dents in the best way pos­si­ble, mak­ing them highly em­ploy­able.

The brave and in­sight­ful stu­dents choose to pur­sue a de­gree that is part of the so­cial sci­ence frame­work. De­spite the stereo­types of so­cial sci­ence de­gree hold­ers find­ing dif­fi­culty in get­ting a job or earn­ing much with one, we now have a wealth of data that proves oth­er­wise. Many world lead­ers whether in gov­ern­ment, busi­ness, or non­profit sec­tors are dis­pro­por­tion­ately drawn from grad­u­ates with skills in the so­cial sciences.

What makes so­cial sci­ence ma­jors so pre­dis­posed to suc­cess is the pro­mo­tion of soft skills and flex­i­ble qual­i­ties. The skills and qual­i­ties in­clude crit­i­cal think­ing, oral and writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion, in­ter­per­sonal, team­work, tech­ni­cal, an­a­lyt­i­cal, or­gan­i­sa­tional know-how and prob­lem-solv­ing.

All these at­tributes are im­por­tant to em­ploy­ers and or­gan­i­sa­tions that must con­tend with the rapidly glob­alised world that grows more com­plex by the day. In­deed, per­haps the main rea­son why grad­u­ates in these fields end up in lead­er­ship and man­age­rial roles is their abil­ity to see the big­ger pic­ture.

BAC is well known for pro­vid­ing more than 200 pre-univer­sity and de­gree pro­grammes in the fields of law, busi­ness, ac­count­ing and fi­nance, mar­ket­ing, eco­nom­ics, hu­man re­sources, lo­gis­tics and mass com­mu­ni­ca­tions, among oth­ers. With cam­puses in the cities of Kuala Lumpur and Pe­tal­ing Jaya, BAC is a pres­ti­gious, com­pre­hen­sive and highly af­ford­able op­tion for world-class de­grees in the so­cial sciences.

BAC pro­vides a wide range of sub­jects in the arts and sciences for the A-Lev­els while of­fer­ing stu­dents the op­tion of choos­ing ei­ther the Ex­press Route (11 months) or Stan­dard Route (18 months). BAC’s A-Level stu­dents have re­ceived the Top in the World Out­stand­ing Cam­bridge Learner Award for their ex­cel­lent re­sults in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and last year.

BAC also of­fers Foun­da­tion in Arts that fo­cuses on in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary stud­ies. The pro­gramme pro­vides an al­ter­na­tive route that forms the base to any ed­u­ca­tion or ca­reer and has been de­signed to pro­vide a learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence fo­cused on the devel­op­ment of aca­demic skills.

Busi­ness School

Stu­dents can choose from a wide ar­ray of de­grees via the UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme (Busi­ness) with a choice of more than 10 pres­ti­gious United King­dom part­ner uni­ver­si­ties.

Ac­count­ing

BAC of­fers a fast-track route to pro­fes­sional ac­count­ing and fi­nance de­grees. BAC’s links with lead­ing pro­fes­sional bodies, in­clud­ing the ACCA (As­so­ci­a­tion of Char­tered Cer­ti­fied Ac­coun­tants) and CIMA (Char­tered In­sti­tute of Man­age­ment Ac­coun­tants), en­sure that upon grad­u­a­tion, stu­dents re­ceive sev­eral ex­emp­tions from pro­fes­sional ex­am­i­na­tions.

Law School

BAC of­fers a wide range of law pro­grammes in Malaysia, rang­ing from pre­uni­ver­sity, de­gree, post­grad­u­ate and pro­fes­sional cour­ses.

The LLB (Hons) is recog­nised for the Cer­tifi­cate in Le­gal Prac­tice (CLP) and the Bar Pro­fes­sional Train­ing Course. Stu­dents can choose to com­plete their de­gree lo­cally via the Univer­sity of London In­ter­na­tional Pro­grammes (the only ex­ter­nal law de­gree recog­nised by the Le­gal Pro­fes­sional Qual­i­fy­ing Board) or abroad via the UK Trans­fer De­gree Pro­gramme (Law).

The Ca­reer Cen­tre

The Ca­reer Cen­tre as­sists stu­dents to ob­tain ca­reer-re­lated skills, which help them get the right start to their ca­reers. The Ca­reer Cen­tre’s meet and greet ses­sions with part­ners and as­so­ciates from le­gal firms ex­pose stu­dents to the re­al­ity of prac­tis­ing law in the cor­po­rate and le­gal are­nas.

The BAC Ed­u­ca­tion Fund grants Fi­nan­cial and Merit Schol­ar­ships up to RM10mil to as­sist de­serv­ing stu­dents to achieve their dreams. The Septem­ber in­take is now in progress.

BAC is well known for pro­vid­ing more than 200 pre-univer­sity and de­gree pro­grammes in the fields of law, busi­ness, ac­count­ing and fi­nance, mar­ket­ing, eco­nom­ics, hu­man re­sources, lo­gis­tics and mass com­mu­ni­ca­tions, among oth­ers.
