  • Skills: the organisation benefits immediately from new knowledge and ideas.
  • Potential: our courses allow professionals to use, update and develop their existing qualifications.
  • Motivation: sponsorship can be a great motivator for high-potential employees.

Sponsoring students: how it works

What to expect from our graduates

Transferable skills

Our students develop transferable skills (such as critical thinking and problem solving) that are an asset to any employer.

Since many study for their degrees alongside the demands of work and family life, they’re also strong at time-management, working independently, and meeting deadlines.

Proactive and inquisitive

Our students become perceptive and proactive. They discover things for themselves and find out how to succeed.

For example: some of our law graduates have produced a book to help aspiring Malaysian lawyers understand what will be expected from them when they enter the legal industry.

Continuing Professional Development

Individual courses from our degrees can be taken for continuing professional development purposes. These allow your staff to keep up to date with latest developments or to gain specialist knowledge.

Successful study may also count towards the CPD requirements of certain professional bodies.
