PURSUING EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION
First City University College (First City UC) is continuing its 25 years’ legacy of KBU International College in its mission to provide quality education for both local and international students. Forging ahead and committed at delivering the best, it is expanding the campus with the construction of Phase II, which will be completed in Q4 2016. The new phase, which is next to the current premises, comprises a new academic block with additional lecture rooms, studios, state-of-the-art laboratories and en-suite air-conditioned student accommodation. A new IT Centre, MBA Centre, library, food court and indoor sports facilities are some of the exciting facilities that the students would be able to enjoy.
Fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), First City UC offers programmes which are relevant to the needs of the industry and which will enhance the employability of its graduates. With the University College status, the institution now offers dual award degrees with its collaborative international university partners, as well as its own homegrown degrees. Constant monitoring of the quality of programmes is carried out by its own Quality Assurance Department, which works closely with the Ministry of Higher Education.
At First City UC, students can expect an affordable quality education delivered by a highly qualified team of dedicated lecturers who are equipped with a range of teaching and commercial industry experience. The outstanding achievements of its graduates and the excellent track record the institution has been enjoying are results of its commitment in establishing strong ties with well-known professional bodies and reputable organisations. First City UC’s five faculties and centres: Faculty of Design & Built Environment, Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, Faculty of Engineering & Computing, Centre for Foundation Studies and Centre for Language & Extension Service, are providing students with the latest learning experience through the use of state-of-the-art facilities. Its dedication in ensuring students are well-taught and engaged can be seen through a fun learning approach and experiential learning concept used by its teaching staff.
Students benefit from lectures by visiting professors and guest speakers from the industry to broaden the scope of their subject knowledge and to enlighten the students on how the real world works. Furthermore, there are exposure to field trips, research and consultancy projects which are organised to extend the students’ learning experience beyond the confines of the classroom. Apart from the specific subject areas within the programmes, there is the inculcation of soft skills development which will prepare the graduates in meeting the industry demands in having both the appropriate qualifications, as well as possess the requisite skills in working with people in any type of organisation.
