Taylor’s College Achieves Outstanding 6 Stars MyQUEST Rating from the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia

Taylor’s College has received the top rating consecutively since the inception of the system

Taylor’s College has once again been recognised for its excellence in private tertiary education when it was awarded the prestigious 6 Stars rating by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia in the recent MyQUEST 2014/2015 ratings announcement. Taylor’s College maintained its top ranking by being the only private college awarded the 6 Stars Outstanding rating for all of its campuses, for the second consecutive time since 2012. MyQUEST, the Malaysian Quality Evaluation Systems was incepted in 2010 and its rating process is conducted every two years.

Taylor’s College received 6 Stars for Overall College-Based Rating, Cluster-Based Rating (General Programmes) and for International Student Services. This landmark achievement marks the third consecutive time Taylor’s College Subang Jaya achieved the 6 Stars rating in the MyQUEST evaluation, while this is the second consecutive 6 Stars rating for the Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas campus. Taylor’s College Subang Jaya has achieved the 6 Stars rating in every evaluation since the MyQUEST rating was introduced in 2010.

The MyQUEST rating, awarded by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia, is an instrument to evaluate the current performance of private colleges in the aspect of quality students, programmes, graduates, resources and governance. MyQUEST addresses three of the Ministry of Higher Education’s Key Results Area (KRA), to increase access to quality higher education, increase graduate employability and the internationalisation of higher education. MyQUEST was incepted in 2010/2011 and in that inaugural award, Taylor’s College Subang Jaya was 1 of only 3 colleges awarded with a 6 Stars rating.

“We are proud that the MyQUEST 6 Stars rating reaffirms the results of our hard work, and we are definitely using this recognition as motivation to further improve ourselves. This achievement is yet another honour added to our rich heritage and a testament to our efforts in sustaining our reputation as a leader in pre-university education,” said Stella Lau, Chief Operating Officer, Taylor’s College.

The private colleges and universities in Malaysia were audited by a team of independent auditors appointed by the Ministry of Education, who made visits to the institutions over the last few months. The evaluation provides Malaysian private colleges with a benchmark target to improve on the quality of education. This, in turn, augurs well for the nation as it seeks to become an international education hub.

“As both a pioneer in the area of pre-university studies in Malaysia as well as the current leader in the field, Taylor’s College takes our responsibility in giving our students the best head start to their future very seriously. The importance of providing the right start in quality learning, strong student support and placing students in the university of their choice cannot be overstated. Our commitment in academic excellence and personal development support will take students a long way in their lives, beyond just a good career,” concluded Ms Lau.

The classification of the rating outcomes are 6 Stars (Outstanding), 5 Stars (Excellent), 4Stars (Very Good), 3 Stars (Good), 2 Stars (Satisfactory) and 1 Star (Poor).
