SEGI Univer­sity and Col­leges is well-known for equip­ping bright young minds of the na­tion for nearly 40 years. By of­fer­ing in­no­vat­ing pro­grammes that ful­fil the needs of em­ploy­ers and the na­tion, SEGi con­tin­ues to of­fer wide rang­ing and qual­ity pro­grammes.

SEGi un­der­stands that there are em­ploy­ees with min­i­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tions and as such, are not able to progress in their ca­reers. There may be ex­ter­nal fac­tors that have pre­vented them from pur­su­ing higher qual­i­fi­ca­tions, and now there is the op­por­tu­nity to do so with SEGi, with a break­through method to en­able adult learn­ers to pur­sue fur­ther stud­ies at their own con­ve­nience, any­where and any­time.

PACE or Pro­fes­sional and Con­tin­u­ing Ed­u­ca­tion is a con­sor­tium of global univer­si­ties that en­ables adult learn­ers to learn at their own pace and com­plete their stud­ies with as­sur­ance that they can still at­tend to other obli­ga­tions and have a ful­fill­ing work-life bal­ance.

Stu­dents have a choice to se­lect which­ever mode of study is best for them: Week­end/evening classes with stu­dents at­tend­ing classes ei­ther on week­ends or in the evenings; or sup­ported learn­ing where in­stead of at­tend­ing sched­uled classes at a phys­i­cal venue, stu­dents can log in for their on­line classes at any time of the day. They only need to at­tend work­shops at their near­est au­tho­rised SEGi lo­ca­tion twice a month. The other mode is in­de­pen­dent learn­ing, where stu­dents study mostly on­line and only need to at­tend in­ten­sive re­vi­sions at their near­est au­tho­rised SEGi lo­ca­tion once a month.

With th­ese choices, stu­dents have the op­por­tu­nity to net­work with fel­low course­mates, meet their lec­tur­ers and gain any ad­di­tional sup­port they may need while they com­plete their stud­ies.

There is a wide range of bach­e­lor’s de­gree, ex­ec­u­tive di­ploma and di­ploma pro­grammes with dis­ci­plines in Busi­ness and Ac­count­ing, Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Early Child­hood Care and Ed­u­ca­tion, En­gi­neer­ing, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and Law.

There are also a range of post­grad­u­ate pro­grammes to pur­sue from its con­sor­tium of global univer­si­ties.

Grad­u­ates get to ob­tain pa­per qual­i­fi­ca­tions from SEGi Univer­sity or from its con­sor­tium of global univer­si­ties: Univer­sity of South­ern Queens­land (Aus­tralia), Univer­sity of Sun­der­land (UK), Univer­sity of Green­wich (UK) or Univer­sity of St Mark and St John (UK) and Univer­sity of Lon­don (UK).

Re­cently, SEGi launched the PACE Cen­tre of Ex­cel­lence (CoE) in the heart of Kuala Lumpur to ad­vo­cate the pos­si­bil­i­ties of fur­ther ed­u­ca­tion for work­ing adults. The cen­tre also aims to ex­tend its out­reach to other states so that work­ing adults out­side the Klang Val­ley can pur­sue their am­bi­tion to ob­tain a higher qual­i­fi­ca­tion

With PACE, SEGi can en­sure work­ing adults have the qual­i­fi­ca­tions they need that de­mand the re­spect of em­ploy­ers. With a highly skilled work­force, work­ing adults can com­pete with their peers on the global stage.

There is a wide range of pro­grammes to pur­sue un­der PACE and to grad­u­ate with pa­per qual­i­fi­ca­tions from SEGi Univer­sity or from any of its UK or Aus­tralia part­ner univer­si­ties.
