Nurturing all-round achievers

Dr Seah sharing some valuable advice with the new batch of students during the orientation.

DISTED College has just concluded the orientation for its biggest intake of the year.

Its 200 newcomers, who have enrolled in Disted for various courses ranging from Pre-University and Diploma to 3+0 degree, took part in the orientation in March.

In his opening remarks, Disted College chief executive officer and president Dr Seah Soo Aun welcomed the new students and dispensed some valuable advice.

“Disted provides a friendly environment for students to enjoy and develop knowledge, but it is also important for you to create a community and build your social networking,” he said.

Dr Seah added that knowledge combined with effective communication and strong networking were vital key elements to a successful future.

Disted College, being a pioneer higher education provider, has always produced top achievers who are equipped with well-rounded skills and knowledge that cater to the needs of the industry and community.

If you missed the March intake, not to worry – Disted’s next intake for Diploma, Degree and the First Japanese Transfer Programme are in May.

Disted’s diploma programmes come with dual award certification which are recognised by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

Upon completion of the courses, students can then opt to pursue a bachelor’s degree programme of their choice as they travel on their educational journey.

The Disted School of Psychology offers the Bachelor of Psychology (Hons) in collaboration with HELP University, a pioneer in psychology studies among private institutions in Malaysia and one of the largest and most established undergraduate Psychology education programme providers in Asia.

The Disted School of Computing and Engineering offers school-leavers an option to study abroad in Japan.

The first Japanese Transfer Programme is open to Malaysian and international students who wish to pursue their studies in the field of Computing and Electronic Engineering, and earn an undergraduate or even postgraduate qualification in Japan.

Furthermore, a Free Japanese Language Proficiency course worth up to RM8,000 will be given to students who sign up for the programme during the May intake.

This year, Disted celebrates its 30 years of distinction.

In conjunction with the occasion, two newly established scholarships will provide financial support to qualified students based on their academic achievements and socio-background.

The High Performance Scholarship was established to award top high school-leavers while the YCE-Penang Turf Club Undergraduate Scholarship is a joint collaboration effort applicable only to new students who enrol in Disted’s degree programmes.
