Taylor’s University deputy vice chancellor and chief academic officer Prof Dr Pradeep Nair said that The Risers is part of the college’s efforts to assist secondary school students as they shift gears into university life and ease their anxieties.
“The Risers is our effort to bridge the gap between secondary school and college, to help secondary school students discover their potential and the world of possibilities open to them especially in this era of the fourth Industrial Revolution whereby students need to take on and thrive in jobs that don’t yet exist and capitalise on ecosystems that we have never been seen before, ” said Prof Pradeep.
