Taylor’s College students get to study in an environment that is home to over 300 international fellow students from 49 countries.

OVER the last five decades, Taylor’s College has built a strong track record of providing the best education for its students. Its commitment to educational excellence has allowed it to provide quality higher education, impacting tens of thousands of youth in Malaysia and beyond.

In continuing its legacy of excellence, Taylor’s College recently inked a partnership with Australia’s University of Enterprise, the University of South Australia. Through this collaboration, both institutions will work together to provide youth access to two degrees – the Bachelor of Business (Management) and the Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) within Taylor’s Lakeside Campus.

Taylor’s College Campus Director Josephine Tan shared her excitement over the partnership, saying that this would enable youth to acquire insight from an Australian syllabus infused with local knowledge through the rich experience of academics at Taylor’s College.

“This is a significant partnership which has allowed us to reestablish our partnership with the University of South Australia (UniSA) whom we had previously partnered on several programmes. In our previous endeavour, the collaboration provided countless youth the opportunity to gain a global outlook to their education.

“We strongly believe that students of both degrees will be able to continue that legacy of excellence as we aspire to provide youth with a degree that will set them apart from their peers.

“For more than 10 years, the UniSA Business School has been accredited by EFMD Quality Improvement System (EQUIS), the world’s leading international accreditation for business schools. As one of just 10 institutions in Australia and 187 globally, it puts UniSA in the top 1% of business schools worldwide. They are also ranked within the top 150 providers for business and economics globally in the 2020 Times Higher Education Subject Rankings exercise.

“This allows students in the Taylor’s College-University of South Australia programmes the platform to gain a strong foundation in their respective areas of study, ” she said.

Students who enroll into the two programmes have the option of doing all three years in Malaysia or splitting their education journey between the Taylor’s Lakeside Campus and the UniSA City West Campus in Adelaide for a duration of either one or two years.

Tan said that this flexibility allowed for a richer learning experience for students.

“Here at Taylor’s College, we strongly believe in providing our students with a global outlook. Our students are able to study in an environment that is home to over 300 international students from 49 countries. Through this partnership, they will also be able to tap into the expertise of the academics from the Australian university and learn about how the two sectors differ in both countries.

“Aside from acquiring knowledge that will enhance their critical thinking skills, students will be able to benefit from the transformative teaching approach that has been adopted by Taylor’s.

“This will allow them to learn through smart devices in a self-directed and personalised manner, anytime anywhere – enabling them to review recorded lectures and access to notes whenever they need them, ” she said.

All this is part of Taylor’s College commitment to provide a holistic learning journey to its students, which includes the two compulsory modules: Life Skills for Success and Well-Being and Millennials in Malaysia: Team Dynamics and Relationship Management, which will empower the next generation with the skills they would need to help towards taking Malaysia into its next phase.

University of South Australia Business School Dean (Academic) Prof Stephen Boyle said UniSA began a long and successful partnership with Taylor’s more than a decade ago.

“Together, we have graduated thousands of students who are now doing great things in Malaysia and around the world.

“Taylor’s and UniSA’s partnership arrangements and systems ensure the highest level of teamwork and communication between academic and administrative staff in Malaysia and Australia, ensuring a quality student study experience.

“Aside from the integrated use of state of the art digital technology for day to day interactions, staff from each institution will travel regularly between campuses to ensure quality in teaching and delivery with UniSA staff also teaching regularly in Malaysia.

“The Taylor’s-UniSA partnership is a winning formula for the future career and study aspirations for graduates, ” he said.
