SCHOOL leavers who register with Disted College’s programmes can enjoy a RM300 tuition fee rebate during the upcoming Star Education Fair 2015 in Penang.
College president and CEO Dr Seah Soo Aun said students who sign up for its newly offered Diploma in Food and Beverage Management programme would be entitled to a special RM3,000 fee rebate.
He said the new programme commenced this month.
It is a two-year-and-four-month programme designed to equip students with applicable knowledge and skills in food service and culinary arts, besides technical and management skills for a career in the global food and beverage industry.
“In addition, students with a minimum of 4A in SPM 2014 will be entitled to Disted’s Merit Award,” he said.
Dr Seah said Disted College was also offering several degree programmes such as the Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) in collaboration with HELP University and Bachelor of Arts (Hons) or Bachelor of Science (Hons), a twinning degree programme with Staffordshire University (UK).
“The Bachelor of Arts programmes vary in Accounting & Finance, Business Management, International Business Management, Marketing Management, Tourism Management and Events Management, and the Bachelor of Science degree is in Business Information Systems Management,” he said.
He added that the college pioneered the Cambridge A-Level offer and was the only institution in the northern region offering the South Australian Certificate of Education programme.
“The college also conducts the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants professional qualifi-cation programme as well as international English Language Proficiency tests such as IELTS for students who are planning to study abroad.
“Students can look forward to participating in a variety of social, cultural, entertainment and exciting activities that will contribute to great on-campus and well-rounded learning experiences,” said Dr Seah.
Meanwhile, the Wawasan Open University (WOU), a sister tertiary institution of Disted, also will be offering great rebates to their new students signing up for the open distance learning (ODL) pro-gramme for the April and July intakes.
They are guaranteed to receive the Return of Study Allowance up to RM400 and are also eligible to apply for WOU’s study grants, Third Course Rebate and other financial incentives.
New full-time students can enjoy a 20% rebate on tuition fees and a RM100 monthly study allowance throughout the duration of study at WOU when they enrol for the upcoming May semester.
They can also apply for study grants, scholarships and bursa-ry awards.
WOU currently offers more than 40 ODL undergraduate and postgraduate programmes besides five full-time business degree programmes.
