Professor Martha-Marie Kleinhans, Vice-Provost of University of Reading Malaysia says of the scholarships
‘We are very excited to be welcoming our first cohort of University of Reading Malaysia students in September 2013 and are delighted to be able to offer these scholarships to these pioneers who will help shape the future of the University of Reading Malaysia
We recognise that the University of Reading Malaysia may not be a familiar name in higher education for many in Malaysia but the wealth of expertise we bring from our UK campus means we are anything but beginners in educating talented people. Neither are we newcomers to Malaysia, having run a successful collaborative teaching with Taylors College over the past ten years.
The University of Reading UK has been equipping students with the skills, experiences and principles to achieve their career aims and make a difference in their chosen field since 1926 and our status as one of the world’s top 1% of universities demonstrates our commitment to all our students.
That said, in many ways, these Foundation students will be our most important as the success of the University of Reading Malaysia depends on exceeding their expectations in terms of quality of teaching and student experience. We want them to finish the programme brimming with confidence for their future studies and eager to tell others about their positive learning experience at the University of Reading Malaysia.
We are confident that we can honour this first cohort of students with an exceptional start to their higher education but expect to learn as much from them as they do from us in our inaugural year.’
