Sunway College Kuching launches Sunway Foundation in Arts (FIA) in November
EVEN if you could study overseas, the question is… would you really want to right now? With governments the world over still grappling with the insidious impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, all sectors are affected and trying to find a sustainable way forward. But time waits for no man. People, especially undergraduates and postgraduates, cannot afford to put their future on pause and bide their time until the pandemic ends. Therein lies the dilemma: students want the very best overseas education, but with safety concerns and heavy costs, most would think twice.
As such, Sunway College Kuching is offering a world-class education within the security and safety of familiar surroundings is an opportunity many families are keen to explore further. To enjoy the safety and the support of the family network, while still obtaining a Foundation program that is accepted by 20 Universities world-wide and setting your future on a bright course is the unique opportunity that Sunway College Kuching offers.
Sunway College Kuching’s Foundation in Arts is an ideal qualification for students who want to keep their options open. The Sunway Foundation in Arts (FIA) programme is a similar programme to what is being offered in the main campus, Sunway College Kuala Lumpur. The FIA programme creates an academic pathway for students to transition smoothly into tertiary level studies at Sunway University or to selected local and overseas universities. As a Sunway University preparatory programme, FIA has been specially designed to enable students to progress into Sunway University. Subject to achieving minimum university entry required scores for their proposed degree programme, students from FIA are guaranteed a place in Sunway University. This programme believes in holistic education. This means that, coupled with academic knowledge students will be exposed to experiential learning as an integral part of their well-rounded education.
The programme was developed with academics from FIA and Sunway University having contributed their expertise and experience, incorporating key elements for students to develop intellectually, emotionally and socially. Ensuring there is a seamless pathway from the foundation year right through to the undergraduate years. Owing to the quality of its provision and the scope of its curriculum, FIA qualification is also accepted by selected local and foreign institutions.
FIA enables students to set personal and academic goals and to identify their individual talents. It develops social responsibility through community involvement and participation in extracurricular activities. It also equips students with technical and soft skills necessary to be resourceful and successful in higher studies and enterprising in their careers. Our emphasis is not confined to students doing well in their examinations and moving on to tertiary studies but in developing their love for lifelong learning, their confidence in their own ability and finding their own talents.
