FOR school-leavers con­sid­er­ing their next step, the Univer­sity of Read­ing Malaysia (UoRM) of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to gain a UK qual­i­fi­ca­tion in Malaysia.

The Univer­sity of Read­ing (UoR) is a rep­utable in­sti­tu­tion that has in­spired and ed­u­cated stu­dents for more than a cen­tury.

Ranked in the Top 200 of the QS World Univer­sity Rank­ings 2018, UoR is home to the in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned Hen­ley Busi­ness School, which is part of an elite group of busi­ness schools to be triple-ac­cred­ited (Amba, Equis and AACSB) in the UK, Europe and the United States for its qual­ity and ca­pa­bil­ity.

By com­plet­ing a UoRM foun­da­tion pro­gramme, stu­dents can fast-track their way to a top-class Bri­tish de­gree.

UoRM is lo­cated in EduCity in the heart of the fast-de­vel­op­ing city of Iskan­dar Pu­teri, Jo­hor. It is UoR’s first over­seas cam­pus and has state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties that bring the best el­e­ments of a Bri­tish univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion to the heart of South-East Asia.

Cour­ses are avail­able at foun­da­tion, un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate lev­els in a range of pro­fes­sional sub­jects such as busi­ness and fi­nance, quan­tity sur­vey­ing, real es­tate, psy­chol­ogy, phar­macy and the pres­ti­gious Hen­ley Mas­ter in Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion. There are also plans for law cour­ses.

Uniquely, UoRM of­fers stu­dents the chance to study part of their course at the UK cam­pus, which means get­ting a de­gree with a UK study ex­pe­ri­ence in an af­ford­able, flex­i­ble and ac­ces­si­ble way.

The univer­sity’s foun­da­tion pro­grammes in busi­ness and science are de­signed for those who have not com­pleted A-Lev­els.

Both pro­grammes of­fer a one-year in­ten­sive course that will pre­pare stu­dents for the aca­demic rigours and per­sonal chal­lenges of an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree.

Those con­sid­er­ing a ca­reer in fi­nance or busi­ness may want to con­sider UoRM’s Foun­da­tion in Busi­ness pro­gramme.

The course is de­signed to teach three busi­ness-re­lated top­ics that will pro­vide a strong un­der­pin­ning for a fu­ture de­gree, as well as train­ing in trans­fer­able aca­demic skills.

Upon com­plet­ing the pro­gramme, stu­dents will be able to progress to an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree at the UK or Malaysia cam­pus, in­clud­ing cour­ses of­fered at Hen­ley Busi­ness School.

With in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion for re­search-led teach­ing, a friendly, sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment and an ex­cel­lent em­ploy­ment record for grad­u­ates, UoRM is an ideal des­ti­na­tion to un­der­take a science de­gree.

The Foun­da­tion in Science pro­gramme will pre­pare stu­dents aca­dem­i­cally and so­cially for a science de­gree.

Upon suc­cess­ful com­ple­tion, they can progress to an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree at UoR in ei­ther the UK or Malaysia, which of­fers ex­pert teach­ing staff, op­por­tu­ni­ties for hands-on learn­ing and high-tech fa­cil­i­ties.

The course not only pro­vides a solid back­ground in science and trans­fer­able aca­demic and life skills, but also pre­pares stu­dents for a re­ward­ing univer­sity ex­pe­ri­ence and lu­cra­tive ca­reer.

Ap­ply now to en­joy the early bird dis­count.

UoR re­wards the best stu­dents in all its cam­puses by of­fer­ing a range of schol­ar­ships, bur­saries and fee dis­counts.

Stu­dents who demon­strate ex­em­plary aca­demic re­sults will au­to­mat­i­cally re­ceive schol­ar­ships when they en­rol in the foun­da­tion pro­gramme with their O-Lev­els and SPM re­sults.

Stu­dents are also el­i­gi­ble for the Provost’s Award, which is the equiv­a­lent of a full schol­ar­ship to­wards their fees.

Stu­dents who demon­strate aca­demic suc­cess and progress to an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree at UoRM are also el­i­gi­ble for a va­ri­ety of High Achiever’s Schol­ar­ships.

To find out more about study­ing at UoRM, visit the cam­pus in EduCity, Iskan­dar Pu­teri, which will be host­ing Open Days on March 17 and 24, from 10am to 4pm.

Take this op­por­tu­nity to tour the modern, pur­pose-built cam­pus, meet stu­dents and teach­ers and get a glimpse of what it is like to study at UoRM dur­ing the pro­gramme taster ses­sions.

Sec­ond-year UoRM stu­dent Eva Diany Che Ramli took the chance to visit a UoRM Open Day, which ce­mented her de­ci­sion to un­der­take a de­gree in real es­tate.

“With the di­verse com­mu­nity at UoRM, the won­der­ful ameni­ties, con­tem­po­rary teach­ing ap­proaches and foun­da­tion pro­grammes, UoRM is a good place to gain an in­ter­na­tional learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” said Eva.

Stu­dents are en­cour­aged to bring their SPM re­sults or equiv­a­lent qual­i­fi­ca­tions to ap­ply for a foun­da­tion pro­gramme dur­ing the Open Day. Visit www.read­ing.edu.my/ open-day to reg­is­ter for the Open Day.

UoRM’s foun­da­tion pro­grammes are de­signed to pre­pare stu­dents for the chal­lenges of pur­su­ing an un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree.
