MCKL Alumnus amongst Most Innovative Engineers in Australia

MCKL Alumnus amongst Most Innovative Engineers in Australia

For many young Malaysians, simply gaining entry into a university overseas is enough of an ambition. For the hardworking few, receiving awards in prestigious universities overseas may be more of a reality than most dare to dream.

Damien Balachandran completed his A Level studies in Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) in 2008, and proceeded with a Bachelor of Engineering at Australian National University (ANU) with the International Undergraduate Scholarship Award. Upon graduating from there, Damien began working as a Hardware Engineer at Seeing Machines and was recently named one of Australia’s most innovative engineers for his role in developing ‘Guardian’, a product that can manage driver fatigue through computer vision.

In recognition of MCKL’s contribution to Damien’s personal and academic growth, his father wrote to MCKL to express his endorsement and gratitude:

“…This was his stepping stone which took him to complete his Hons in Engineering at Australian National University in Canberra. He graduated in 2012 and was chosen as the graduated speaker. From here he was offered employment as an undergraduate in Seeing Machines based in Canberra.

“We as parents of Damien made the right choice in choosing MCKL for his foundation studies. Thanks to all lecturers in nurturing him for achievements.”

Students who have similar aspirations may consider enrolling for MCKL’s courses such as the Cambridge A Level, Western Australian Matriculation, American Degree Transfer Programme, Diploma in Early Childhood Education, Diploma in Social Work or Accounting Studies (ACCA). Scholarships are available for deserving students.

Top Student Awarded Scholarship to study Early Childhood Education in Ireland

MCKL diploma graduates will find plenty of opportunities overseas through the generosity of their partnered universities.

Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) wishes to congratulate Nadia Iman Binti Abdul Jalil, who has won an exclusive MCKL-IT Tralee Scholarship for her excellent academic achievements in the College to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Early Childhood Care & Education in Institute of Technology Tralee, Ireland. This special scholarship will cover most of Nadia’s academic fees, accompanied with free accommodations. To regular MCKL diploma graduates, IT Tralee also offers the 2016-17 Special Citizen Scholarship, which includes a fee waiver of €1000.00 and free accommodations for the duration of their course. MCKL students therefore only have to pay roughly €12,000.00 per year, which includes tuition fees and cost of living.

Such exceptional concessions represent a close collaboration between MCKL and IT Tralee, resulting from years of producing passionate, knowledgeable and hardworking students from MCKL’s Diploma in ECE programme. Many of them have advanced to further studies overseas and excelled in their respective courses, such as Esther Lim, Hong Xiao Yi, Tan Evon, Ng Xu Xuan and Michelle How Xin Yi, who all graduated last year from IT Tralee, and the latter three did so with First Class Honours.

In recognition of the quality of MCKL diploma graduates, IT Tralee and the University of Gloucestershire, UK have given them the opportunity to enter directly into the third year of their degree programmes, which means that students only have to study for one additional year to turn their diploma qualification into a Bachelor’s Degree. Other institutions such as New Zealand Tertiary College, NZ, University College Birmingham, UK, University of Hertfordshire, UK and University of West England, UK have also acknowledged MCKL graduates by offering advanced standing for entry into the second year of their degree programmes.

Students who have a passion for teaching and nurturing young children may consider enrolling for MCKL’s Diploma in Early Childhood Education. For further information on MCKL and its programmes: call 03-22746711 (Marketing) or 03-22741851 (General), Email [email protected] or visit our website

Highly Sought-after Scholarship Awarded to MCKL from HWUM

Highly Sought-after Scholarship Awarded to MCKL from HWUM

In March 2016, Professor Robert Craik, Provost and CEO of Heriot-Watt University Malaysia visited Ms Moey Yoke Lai, the CEO of Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL), during its Scholarship Info Day event to present her with the inaugural MCKL-HWUM Scholarship. Valued at over RM180, 000 for covering up to three years’ worth of academic expenses for any undergraduate course at HWUM, the scholarship was exclusively available to one deserving student each year from MCKL.

This scholarship represents the culmination of years of MCKL’s tireless efforts to find alternatives for outstanding graduates who are unable to pursue their dreams of studying overseas due to financial constraints. As such, it will enable recipients to experience quality education of international standards within Malaysia without having to worry about the discouraging expenses usually involved in similar pursuits. This year’s exemplary recipient of the MCKL-HWUM Scholarship is Khoo Wei Ning, who has completed her A Levels in MCKL and will be entering HWUM to study Actuarial Science.

Over the years, MCKL has built up a formidable reputation of sending its graduates to prestigious universities around the world. Many can attest to the academic calibre of MCKL graduates, and like HWUM, several have chosen to acknowledge it by partnering with the College to offer exclusive benefits to its alumni enrolling in their Malaysian campuses. Swinburne University of Technology, Sarawak Campus, for example, waivers application fees and first semester accommodations rent for all MCKL students. Other local institutions have also begun similar ventures with the College, such as UCSI University, IACT College, HELP University, KDU University College and Asia Pacific University of Technology and Information.

With more supportive options becoming available each year, we hope that more young Malaysians will be encouraged and inspired to make the most of their education for nation-building.

Students who wish to seek these opportunities may consider enrolling for MCKL’s courses such as the Cambridge A Levels, Western Australian Matriculation, American Degree Transfer Programme, Diploma in Early Childhood Education or Accounting Studies.
