A RECENT study by Khazanah Research Institute found that the Malaysian education system emphasises academic and professional qualifications but employers are looking for soft skills and work experience.
Recognising this shift, Taylor’s University recently revamped its approach to pedagogy with the introduction of the Taylor’s Curriculum Framework (TCF). Through this learner-centric approach, students will get to enhance their future readiness as it will allow them to build on their transdisciplinary skills as well as build on their technical knowledge and passion.
Visitors to the Taylor’s Open Day (March 9-10) at its Lakeside Campus in Selangor will be able to learn more about Taylor’s Curriculum Framework, an initiative that allows students to co-curate their education with Taylor’s as well as check out the facilities and amenities available at the award-winning campus.
By talking to the friendly lecturers and counsellors during Open Days, school leavers and their families will be able to get an idea of what studying at a particular university will be like.
Another bonus factor is that it can sort out any doubts and answer burning questions parents and school leavers may have while browsing their options for the next phase of their journey in education. If in doubt of the career to dive into, future students have access to a team of experts from Career Services that will assist in assessing the individual’s personal preferences, identifying potential professions to explore.
Taylor’s Future Movement, curated by Taylor’s University and RIUH, will take place on March 16-17 at Lakeside Campus. The two-day event which is themed Defying Convention: A Journey of Reimagining and Experiencing What Could Be will help provide more information for anyone looking to further their studies.
During the event, Taylor’s Lakeside Campus will host a selection of pop-up stores, creative workshops, live acts, student works and showcases demonstrating the value of transferable skills paving the way for future workplaces – which all begins in getting the right education.
Some highlights of the activities available throughout the weekend of March 16-17 include talks and workshops which will take place every hour from 10am conducted by Taylor’s lecturers and students.
Visitors will be able to explore different fields such as culinary arts, hospitality and tourism, engineering, law, business and the American Degree Transfer Programme through these sessions. There will also be plenty of food choices available to curb your appetite the whole day long.
This year, Taylor’s is celebrating its 50th anniversary as a quality education provider for more than 100,000 youth locally and internationally. With its illustrious history in education, Taylor’s takes its commitment to provide access to quality education to more and more Malaysian youths in order to provide them the platform to realise their full potential seriously.
Understanding the concerns of today’s parents, Taylor’s has introduced two new scholarship efforts – the Taylor’s Sports Scholarship and the Taylor’s Community Scholarship – in addition to its existing stable of bursary and financial aid options to high-achieving and deserving students from across the nation.
It will be accepting applications for these two scholarships as well as its current programmes – Taylor’s World Class Scholarship; Taylor’s Excellence Award; Taylor’s Talent Scholarship; and the Taylor’s Merit Scholarship – ahead of the March intake.
Students can apply for the scholarships using their forecast, trial or actual results to get a head start in pursuing their dreams.
Taylor’s counsellors will be on hand to guide students along the way of this exciting journey, as they navigate the countless opportunities that lie in wait for them.
Visit Taylor’s Lakeside Campus on March 9-10 (10am-5pm) or March 16 (10am-9pm) and March 17 (10am-6pm) when Taylor’s Future Movement takes place. For more info call 03-5629 5000, email firstname.lastname@example.org or go to www.taylors.edu.my.
