A UK EDUCATION has long been held in high regard, with a solid reputation for prestige and quality education. However, the increased cost of living can be a deterrent for those planning to continue their education there, especially now with the travel and quarantine requirements.
But now you can reap the benefits of a British education on our own shores as the University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) makes high quality UK education more accessible, affordable and flexible than ever before.
UoRM is the international campus of the University of Reading in the UK and a great choice for students with IGCSE, A-Levels, UEC and other equivalent results, with the option to start their studies in April 2022, or later in July or September.
EduCity’s modern and state-of-the-art campus, Iskandar Johor, offers an excellent learning environment that includes computer classrooms, an amphitheater, a learning resource center and student social spaces under one roof. Within the supervised EduCity compound, students also have access to top-notch sports facilities as well as a 24-hour student center.
In addition to the Times Higher Education’s Top 100 Global International Perspectives ranking (2021), five of the university’s renowned schools and institutions are represented at UoRM, including:
• Henley School of Business
• Law School
• School of the built environment
• School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences
• Institute for Studies and Languages of the Foundation
Study programs are specifically offered in professional disciplines that offer students excellent career potential:
• Accounting and finance
• Finance and business management
• Management and business
• Psychology (with or without a one-year professional internship)
• Quantitative survey
• Real estate
More details about the program can be found at read.edu.my/programmes.
After graduation, students receive the same degree from the University of Reading that they would get if they studied in the UK.
All programs are designed to give students a head start in the career of their choice and, where appropriate, gain relevant sectoral and professional recognition.
UoRM students also benefit from an experienced and highly qualified academic team. In fact, 75% of academic staff who teach in undergraduate programs hold doctorates.
Students can also take advantage of the flexible options to spend one or even two years studying at the award-winning Reading UK campus. A virtual tour of the UK campus is available at https://www.reading.ac.uk/virtual-experience/
The option may be particularly appealing to parents who wish to send their children to study in the UK but are concerned about travel restrictions and health and safety in the current pandemic situation. Reading Town is ideally located just 30 minutes by train from London.
While the cost of a college education is a major financial burden for many families, the investment can turn out to be one of the smartest long-term investments in giving your child the best start in their working life.
UoRM students pay only 40% of the overall estimated costs compared to studying on the UK campus, including fees and living expenses. You may also be surprised to learn that the fees are comparable to other local private universities in Malaysia, and those with excellent academic results may even be eligible for a High Achiever scholarship worth up to RM 33,840.
Those who have IGCSE, SPM or equivalent can enroll in the 12-month International Foundation Program (IFP). Those with A level and UEC qualifications can apply for direct entry to undergraduate degrees.
Students applying for entry in April 2022 should contact UoRM as soon as possible to take advantage of early bird discounts.
