DISTED Col­lege is an in­sti­tu­tion that pro­vides stu­dents with high-qual­ity ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion op­tions to pur­sue upon their high school grad­u­a­tion. It also of­fers a safe and com­fort­able en­vi­ron­ment for stu­dents to learn, de­velop new skills and en­joy the cam­pus life.

Hence, school leavers who would like to fur­ther their stud­ies can con­sider DISTED’s diploma pro­grammes since it cov­ers a wide range of fields. All the pro­grammes are recog­nised and ac­cred­ited by the Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency (MQA ).

From the seven diploma pro­grammes of­fered, six of them come with dual award cer­ti­fi­ca­tion. As such, in ad­di­tion to a DISTED diploma, stu­dents who ful­fil all grad­u­a­tion re­quire­ments will also be awarded a BTEC Higher Na­tional Diploma (HND) by Pear­son, the world’s lead­ing ed­u­ca­tion com­pany and the largest award­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion in the UK.

The BTEC (Busi­ness and Tech­nol­ogy Ed­u­ca­tion Coun­cil) is a work-re­lated qual­i­fi­ca­tion that places em­pha­sis on as­sign­ments, projects and prac­ti­cal learn­ing; and is glob­ally recog­nised in both the ed­u­ca­tion and cor­po­rate sec­tors.

The six diploma pro­grammes which come with dual award cer­ti­fi­ca­tion in­clude Diploma in Busi­ness Stud­ies, Diploma in Ac­count­ing, Diploma in Hos­pi­tal­ity Busi­ness Man­age­ment, Diploma in Com­puter Sci­ence, Diploma in Busi­ness In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy and Diploma in Cre­ative Mul­ti­me­dia Pro­duc­tion.

Stu­dents who are keen to pur­sue a ca­reer path in psy­chol­ogy can con­sider pur­su­ing the Bach­e­lor of Psy­chol­ogy (Hons) de­gree pro­gramme at Disted as well. Of­fered in col­lab­o­ra­tion with HELP Univer­sity, the pro­gramme ac­cords stu­dents with broad­based knowl­edge and trans­fer­able skills that are es­sen­tial in psy­chol­ogy pro­fes­sions.
