THE University of Reading is a global top 200 university with a campus in Reading in the United Kingdom (UK) and a stunning new Malaysia campus located in Educity, Iskandar Johor (near Legoland).
The Malaysia campus offers students the best of both worlds – the opportunity to study for a prestigious UK degree, following the UK curriculum, at significantly lower cost compared with going to the UK.
The University’s Malaysia campus is focused on helping students develop their careers specifically in areas where graduates are in high demand – an important factor when choosing a degree programme.
Take, for example, the renowned, triple-accredited Henley Business School. Henley has partnered with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) to develop a programme that allows students not only to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Finance, but also gain the ICAEW Business and Finance Profession (BFP) designation, a full one-year internship, and fast-track to ICAEW chartered status, all of which gives them a flying start in their career.
In the School of Built Environment, the Bachelor of Science in Quantity Surveying has a long and well-established track-record of producing many of the industry’s senior surveyors. The QS programme is accredited with RICS, CIOB, BQSM and PAQS, providing students with a distinct advantage in terms of professional recognition and career advancement. The school is one of a handful worldwide to have a Building Information Modelling (BIM) lounge equipped with the latest technology.
There is a plan to launch a LLB Law programme in September 2019, subject to approval. A moot court is already installed on campus to provide students with experiential learning.
For SPM holders, the university’s International Foundation Programme (IFP) is the ideal route to an undergraduate degree.
In fact, students who complete the IFP on the Malaysia campus have the option to either transfer to the UK or stay in Malaysia for their undergraduate degree. There are intakes for IFP in April and September.
A key advantage of studying at the University’s Malaysia Campus in Educity, Iskandar Johor, is the environment.
The modern campus allows students to focus on their studies while still having fun and enjoying their social life without all the hassle of living in a big city. What’s more, with the UK mobility programme, students on the Malaysia campus have an opportunity to spend their second year of study on the UK campus.
