GREAT things are coming to Malaysian shores as Peninsula College’s partnership with University of Plymouth is set to bring quality UK degree course to Malaysian students.
Now, getting a foreign degree no longer means breaking the bank, with partnerships and collaborations allowing students to study locally while getting quality education on par with that of the parent university overseas.
This saves a tremendous amount of money as compared to actually studying and living abroad.
Also, it makes a quality overseas education available in the face of travel restrictions imposed due to the recent pandemic.
The exclusive partnership between Peninsula College and the University of Plymouth, UK, will provide Malaysian students with a quality education and UK degree.
Being taught by industry experts give students an internationally relevant education, leading to a successful and rewarding career.
Courses offered range from logistics management, business management, accountancy, tourism, computer studies to engineering.
The courses will be offered at The Ship Campus in Batu Kawan, Penang.
Peninsula Higher Education Group president Prof Ian Pashby says Malaysian students can gain globally recognised qualifications without boarding a plane, making it easier for students and parents to navigate in a time when global travel is halted.
“It is no longer business as usual for all of us as we are now pushed to be agile and flexible in our approach towards education. Learning should not stop during trying times and while studying abroad remains a popular option, parents are now reconsidering new ways of equipping their students with the best education experience.
“Peninsula College is excited with our partnership with University of Plymouth as they are reputable in maritime studies – a topic closely related to logistics, ” he comments.
University of Plymouth has a proud heritage dating back over 150 years when the Plymouth School of Navigation was established in 1862. This long association with the sea continues and is a key strength of the university to this day – now the 15th largest university in the UK.
“The University of Plymouth is proud to be working in partnership with Peninsula College.
“With a wealth of experience over two decades, Peninsula College has to be the top choice for students seeking industry-based education in Malaysia.
“And with the University of Plymouth priding itself on ensuring graduates are highly employable through hands-on learning with industry standard skills, this partnership will deliver an unrivalled education ensuring students are highly employable upon graduation, ” says University of Plymouth head of partnerships Mark Stone.
University of Plymouth has a thriving community of over 9,500 students studying at partner institutions across the world. Students benefit from the outstanding opportunities available from a university which has been collaborating with quality education establishments since the 1970s.
Peninsula College students will also have the opportunity to complete their degree in the UK at the University of Plymouth and experience everything Britain’s Ocean City has to offer.
Known for its safe, welcoming campus, Plymouth has a diverse cultural population and welcomes international students.
“While the future is uncertain in many ways, there is one certainty – it is in your hands. Take the opportunity now to secure a quality UK education here in Malaysia and start your journey to a rewarding future, ” says Stone.
Intake for the University of Plymouth degree programmes by Peninsula College is now open for registration.
