Taylor’s College Students’ Day opens the world to students via a successful educational journey
School leavers keen to explore their tertiary education options were off to a great start at the Taylor’s College annual Students’ Day. Held at the Taylor’s College Subang Jaya and Sri Hartamas campuses on the 5 and 6 December, the Students’ Day offered students who had just completed their secondary education and their families the opportunity to explore tertiary study options, particularly the wide range of undergraduate programmes offered at Taylor’s College, and provided assistance to help them find the right match.
According to the HSBC Global Report, up to 80% of students are unsure about their study and career choice, which leads to an uncertain future. Understanding the impact of this, the Taylor’s College Students’ Day is aimed at giving students an in-depth knowledge of the college’s academic offerings and helping them to plan the next step of their transition from secondary school to college.
“With 46 years of experience coupled with a pioneering status in pre-university education, we believe that starting with the right foundation is necessary to launch students to success in both their university and professional life. With that in mind, the annual Taylor’s College Students’ Day is designed as a platform to expose prospective students to the structured, diverse and innovative programmes that Taylor’s College offers. We have also planned it as a fun and exciting event to reflect how students feel when they take their first steps towards achieving their tertiary education goals,” said Stella Lau, Chief Operating Officer of Taylor’s College.
The Students’ Day programme was packed full of exciting talks by international speakers who are experts in their field related to the different pre-university programmes available at Taylor’s College. The high-profile list of speakers included Nithin Nesadurai from SACE International, Ng Kim Huat from the University of Cambridge, Chan Soo Lynn from the Malaysian Canada Business Council, Faisol Musa from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme and Harmarhinder Singh Iqbal Singh, Dean of Taylor’s Law School. Each session was structured to give students a more thorough look into the international pre-u programmes offered by Taylor’s College. The speakers addressed a wide variety of programme-related topics such as how to succeed beyond academics with Cambridge education, discovering your complete pathway to a UK Law Degree with Taylor’s, exploring and igniting with an Australian education and more. Additionally, the speakers were on hand for a one-on-one consultation with parents and students to address their concerns.
Visitors were encouraged to have personal VIP counselling sessions where Taylor’s College’s academic staff were on hand to give practical advice and answer all questions relating to the undergraduate programmes offered. The Taylor’s College team worked together to ensure that potential students got the most out of their visit and a taste of student life at Taylor’s College, ahead of their tertiary education journey.
