SEGi’s Law students keep 100% graduation record in UK university

KUCHING – SEGi College Sarawak’s students once again make the College proud of them when they successfully graduated from Northumbria University in UK.

The seven Diploma in Law graduates, who flew to the UK-based university to complete the final part of their Bachelor of Laws (Hons) degree programme, attended their graduation ceremony in Northumbria two weeks ago.

The newly graduated students are Timothy Chua Yaw Sen, Ting Lih Jing, Awangku Mohamad Iqbal Bin Awangku Jinal, Aaron Paran Gugkang, Fidelia Albert T. Enti, Evelyn Tan Yee Lin and Vanessa Binti Fahmi Collin.

“We are pleased that our students have achieved their law degrees. We have seen 100% success from our Diploma in Law graduates in Northumbria University,” said SEGi College Sarawak’s Head of Academic, Elina Tiu, adding that every Diploma in Law graduate who has gone to the UK university have gained their degree.

“The latest seven students have maintained that status quo.”

Contacted via facebook, Aaron said he was happy that he has achieved his UK honours law degree and was likely to proceed with his Master of Law (LLM) first before attempting his Bar, the equivalent of Malaysia’s CLP (Certificate in Legal Practice).

Two others, Evelyn and Vanessa, said in their emails that they were also considering doing their LLM prior to taking their Bar exams. The remaining four will be returning to Kuching as law practitioners.

 Meanwhile, Programme Coordinator of Law, James Loi said: “At SEGi, we prepare our A-Level and Diploma of Law students with in-depth knowledge of the nature of law, legal institutions, branches of the law and its roles in the society.”

Holders of the Diploma in Law will gain advanced standing towards the Law degrees from SEGi’s partner universities, namely Northumbria University in UK or Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Australia.

 “Law covers many aspects of our everyday life, from registering a birth to buying a home, but what’s fascinating about this area of study is the opportunity to study how the law governs our life and the opportunity to evaluate and think critically about any given situation.”

Law can open doors to many other careers, apart from being lawyers, where the analytical skills and problem solving abilities can be of great value to the graduates and their employers.

Those with qualifications in law will definitely enhance their career prospects and in the same time, open vast job opportunities in various fields such as policing, social work, and other law related or para-legal careers.

“For those who are interested in law or becoming lawyers, and still looking for the right route of study, we highly recommend them to start their ambition by enrolling into our A-Level programme or Diploma of Law,” Loi said.

The August registration is on and PTPTN financing available for the law programmes.

Korean students graduate at SEGi College Sarawak

FOR THE ALBUM... Korean and local students striking a pose after the Koreans’ Graduation Ceremony at SEGi College Sarawak.

KUCHING – Twenty-two students from Hansung University of Korea graduated last week after successfully completing their English Summer Camp in SEGi College Sarawak.

The partnership programme with Hansung Universitiy enabled its selected students to experience everything Malaysia has to offer as well as attending an English language course, specifically catered to them as part of their summer programme in their respective university.

The main emphasis of the camp was learning through structured lessons and specially tailored activities to ensure that students use English language as much as possible.

 “We believe that by exposing  international students to the external environment, outside of the class rooms, they will have more opportunities to interact and practice their English,” said the Head of Academic, Elina Tiu.

“They will also have the opportunity to practice what they have learned in class and apply their English language skill in actual situations. This will speed up their grasp of the language.

“And because they are practising what they have learned, they will be able to remember and speak the language more fluently.”

The one-month programme was filled with visits to many places from shopping centres to eateries in and around Kuching city. They were also brought to local attractions like Damai Puri Beach Resort, Jong Crocodile Farm, Semenggok Wildlife Centre, Bako National Park, Lundu Retreat Resort and the Museums.

During their course of study, the student also took part in SEGi’s Mini Food Fair on July 20, 2011 where they set up a stall selling Korean food. Again this gave them the opportunity to interact with the local students.

This two-fold programme was established not just to teach students English but also exposing them to the culture and lifestyle of the local people.

As part of their Graduation Ceremony, the Korean students were asked to make a presentation summarising their one-month trip to Malaysia. All of them were pleased with the warmth and experience they had gathered here and hope that they will someday return to Malaysia.

 “We are confident that the time the Korean students have spent learning in SEGi College Sarawak will help them with their everyday English usage and at the same time, give them sweet memories that they will bring back to their country,” Tiu added.

SEGi’s Profits Continue to Jump

KUCHING – Private higher education provider, SEG International Bhd (SEGi) is poised to continue its exponential growth, with the announcement of its latest earnings and launching of new educational projects.

SEGi’s 2nd quarter net profit for the period ended 30 June 2011 surged 67.6% to RM 18.1 million from RM 10.8 million in the corresponding period a year earlier, whereas profit before tax jumped 64.9% to RM 22.7 million.    Revenue during the three-month period increased 31.6 % to RM 69.2 million from RM 52.6 million in the previous corresponding period.

The half year profit after tax of RM 36.3 million is equivalent to 84% of previous year’s full year result of RM 43.1 million and analysts are predicting that the full year result for 2011 will be another record breaking performance.

Datuk Seri Clement Hii, SEGi’s group managing director, said that while the Group’s four campuses in the Klang Valley contributed the majority of the earnings, SEGi’s Kuching campus has greatly improved its financial performance in the last two years.

“SEGi Sarawak currently has 1700 students, and it will further expand its course offerings and facilities in the coming years,” he pointed out.

Currently, 300,000 new school leavers enter the tertiary education system every year. Based on conservative yearly revenue of RM 15,000 per student, the market is worth a staggering RM4.5 billion.
Furthermore, the government’s plan to double the foreign student enrolment in local private institutions from currently 90,000 foreign students to 200,000 students by easing the application of student visas and improving working opportunities upon graduation will be a boost for the market.

Amid the scenario, Hii expects SEGi to grab a bigger piece of the pie given its well-known brand name, strategically located campuses and diversified course offerings.

Early this year, SEGi was appointed by the government as “champion” to lead a consortium to upgrade qualification of the existing work force for Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) numbering approximately 40,000 and to train up to 218,000 ECCE educators by 2020. In addition, SEGi will also be leading the setting up of ECCE training hub in Kuala Lumpur and other parts of the country.

On 21st July 2011, SEGi was again appointed “project leader” by the Government through the Ministry of Human Resource to promote skill based training to international market. This is a new initiative to bring in foreign trainees and learners to Malaysia, known as Skill Malaysia International Technical Education and vocational training programme( “Skills Malaysia INVITE).

Skills Malaysia INVITE is part of the government’s Education National Key Economic Area (NKEA) which has identified “Scaling Up of Private Skills Training Provision and Championing Malaysia’s International Education Brand” as among the initiatives to achieve the goals of the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP).

Hii felt SEGi’s appointment by the government was a testimonial of SEGi’s credibility and leadership in private tertiary education.

“It will help to enhance our brand name and provide SEGi with first mover advantage in those markets. SEGi will continue to adopt forward-thinking strategies which will enable the group to maintain a sustainable growth rate, profitability, and maximize returns to all stakeholders,” he added.

SEGi is now the largest private education provider in Malaysia with 24,500 local and foreign students. It is listed on Bursa Malayisa with a market capitalisation of RM1.4billion (inclusive of warrants).
