KUCHING: Financial problem is commonly faced by students who wish to further studies in private universities.

Because of this, UCSI University – with 27 years of track record – has pledged a total of RM35 million worth of bursaries and financial assistantship to encourage youths to make bold education choices.

SPM students with 5As and above in their trail exam are eligible to apply for UCSI University Trust A-Level Scholarship and UCSI University Trust Pre-U Scholarship.

The campus has successfully gained international cooperative education partners and many students have fulfilled their dreams of studying locally and interning overseas.

Students can also choose to study at Zealand Institute of Business and Technology (Zibat), formerly known as CELF – The Academy, in Denmark for an authentic European experience through the exchange programme.

Apart from that, all SPM students are given a chance to enjoy up to 20 per cent tuition fee waiver, under the Education Assist Scheme for the diploma programmes, including Diploma in Hotel Management, Diploma in Culinary Arts and Diploma in Leisure and Recreation Management with minimum entry requirement of five credits in their SPM result.
