SOCIETY is complex but complexity attracts too. It is perhaps this factor which has led to the emergence and rise in popularity of psychology as a field of study in recent years.
To cater to the needs of students increasingly keen to pursue a course in psychology, INTI College Malaysia (INTI) has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with the University of Adelaide to offer a 1.5+2 years degree programme in this area.
As the third oldest university in Australia, the University of Adelaide boasts of an excellent track record, having produced two Nobel Prize winners and nearly 100 Rhodes scholars.
The university has also enjoyed strong partnership ties with INTI since the 1990s in areas such as engineering, business, the life sciences and biotechnology.
Students signing up for the degree programme in psychology only need to complete one and a half years of study at INTI before proceeding to the University of Adelaide.
As psychology deals with behavioural patterns relating to human welfare and development, it opens doors to employment in various fields including clinical psychology, counselling, community work, forensics, education, developmental and organisational psychology, and in training and sports.
In line with its vision to nurture high achievers, INTI will be offering three scholarships to students pursuing its programmes – the achievement scholarship, merit scholarship and sports/special talent scholarship.
Merit scholarships for applicants who score 6As and above in the SPM or “O” levels examinations are awarded in the form of tuition waivers ranging from 20% to 100% and can be approved immediately at both INTI Bandar Baru Nilai and INTI Subang Jaya.
Students who transfer to universities abroad may also apply for scholarships awarded by INTI’s collaborative partner universities in the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and New Zealand.
