The College has prepared over 50,000 successful graduates for higher education through a comprehensive range of internationally recognised courses ranging from pre-university to diploma and degree programmes.

Since its establishment in 1969, Taylor's University College Malaysia has expanded from its main location in Subang Jaya, known simply as Taylor's University College Subang Jaya, to include four additional campuses extending throughout the area surrounding its main campus, namely Taylor's Business School, Taylor's College Petaling Jaya, Taylor's American Degree Transfer Program and Taylor's College School of Hospitality and Tourism.

Students who come to Taylor's University College Malaysia can choose to major in a variety of disciplines, ranging from Architecture, Interior Design, Construction Management, Computer Science, Engineering, Quantity Surveying, Biomedical Science and Law to Business, Communication, Hospitality and Tourism, or the American Degree Transfer Program (ADP) which offers the quality of an American university education and the option of going to almost any university in the US including prestigious state universities and Ivy League schools.

Taylor's University College Malaysia has always been distinctive because of our commitment to ensuring our students receive an education that extends beyond the classroom, and possess hands-on understanding of the real world.

Located in the urban area of Subang Jaya, the Taylor's University College campus serves as a central hub for students, with well-equipped facilities and a conducive study environment. Taylor's Lakeside Campus, which will be ready in 2009, boasts state-of-the-art architecture and will house all existing tertiary programmes under one roof.

Taylor's five campuses which house respective schools, are strategically located in the vibrant and well-planned township of Subang Jaya.

Taylor's University College
Malaysia's First State-of-the-Art Modern-Tropical University Campus

In response to the ever-pressing need for knowledgeable human capital, Taylor's University College is building a state-of-the-art modern tropical university campus to meet the need of students and in line with the nation's goal of becoming a regional center of education excellence.

The commencement of work for RM450 million Taylor's Lakeside Campus in early 2007 is indeed an exciting phase in Taylor's 38-year-old history and underscores its continued commitment to self-development. It marks another milestone in Taylor's history where great strides have been made since 1969.

The Lakeside Campus will house all existing tertiary programmes, currently located at Taylor's various campuses in Subang Jaya and Petaling Jaya. Set on 27 acres of tropical greenery near Jalan PJS 7/5, the campus will be surrounded by a revived 5.5 acre man-made lake, as well as a landscape of water plants, trees and flowering shrubs and groundcover which will provide a rich and stimulating natural environment in the neighbourhood.

The completion of Taylor's Lakeside Campus is another step forward towards realising Taylor's mission to become a university of 20,000 students renowned for its teaching excellence and the distinctive quality of its graduate.

A Quick Tour of Taylor's lakeside Campus:
A warm sense of arrival will be your first impression as the tree-lined University Drive leads you towards the grand Main Entrance. Turn at the Entrance Oval and Roundabout, and catch your first glimpse of the lake.

Pass the Retail Podium where inter-connecting streets lead to shops, cafes, banks, convenience stores and an array of service amenities. Next is a fully furnished 1,000-bed Hostel, neighbouring F&B outlets that face out to the lake and a boardwalk.

From the Main Drop-off down the Grand Staircase, proceed to the University Square and Amphitheatre. This popular and important gathering area will be flanked by the Hostel and Commercial Block on the west, Administration Offices, Student Union and a Multi-Purpose Hall on the north, Academic Blocks on the east and the lake on the south.

Plays, recitals and other performances will be staged at the ‘Art Precinct', formed by the Experimental Theatre, the 600-pax Auditorium, 300-pax Lecture Theatre and the outdoor Amphitheatre. The pride of the campus will undeniably be the Library, a splendid 4-storey glass edifice that warrants panoramic views of the lake.

Sheltered, landscaped promenades will provide easy access to scores of world-class facilities. Restaurants and kitchens for the Hospitality and Tourism Faculty. Fully equipped Laboratories for advancing skills and knowledge in Science, Computer, Audio and Video, Engineering, Architecture and Design. A Moot Court for making a case.

The beautiful new Taylor's Lakeside Campus will provide all the right conditions for a vibrant exchange between academic, commercial, social and leisure activities. More than just a home to new student population, it will be the nurturing ground for an energetic and dynamic new community.

Taylor's Lakeside Campus will be the vehicle for Taylor's to further enhance the delivery of its purpose, which is to educate the youth of the world to take their productive place as leaders in the global community.

Education industry expected to remain positive this year

PETALING JAYA: Meg Tan, who has always dreamt of studying overseas, has had her dreams dashed by the current economic downturn.

After completing her Cambridge A-levels in a local private university college, she was looking forward to pursuing an accounting and finance degree in Britain.

Her parents, however, have decided for her to continue her studies locally instead – via a twinning or an external degree programme – to save costs.

“It is the prudent thing to do. We do not know how long the economic downturn will last and whether our jobs will be affected. We can always send her overseas for her last year if finances permit.

“The degree programmes in the private colleges here are pretty flexible in this aspect and our financial burden will be eased substantially as we save more than half of what we need to spend if we send her to Britain,” says Meg’s father Paul Tan.

With more families tightening their purse strings and letting their children study locally rather than abroad to save costs, the outlook for the private higher education industry is expected to remain positive this year, say industry players.

The Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (Macpu) executive secretary Ko Kim Hooi says the current economic downturn can be an incentive for students to look at twinning and external programmes as cheaper alternatives.

“The education industry is seen as a recession-proof industry as education is a necessity, so the outlook is still good for us.

“During the 1997/98 financial crisis, the local private higher education industry came up with various twinning programmes to help students save costs and this move boosted business as well,” he tells StarBiz.

Ko says more students studying locally will also help the country save on foreign exchange.

According to Monash University Sunway Campus pro vice-chancellor and president (Malaysia) Prof Robin Pollard, the university is showing above-normal application rates.

“So it appears as though some people prefer to study at home rather than face an uncertain future with higher cost commitments by going overseas,” he says.

Some may also decide to further their education rather than enter an uncertain job market, thus leading to a rise in enrolment even in a declining economy, adds Pollard.

“Of course, the hope is that when the economy improves, the additional learning will lead to benefits,” he says.

Moreover, most parents would have set aside education funds for their children since birth as education is an investment for the future.

“Most in the affluent market who can afford to send their children overseas, would have pre-planned and allocated money for their children’s education,” says Taylor’s University College vice-chancellor Professor Hassan Said.

He adds that Taylor’s has a strong line-up of new programmes in the pipeline for students, in addition to its own degrees such as engineering and architecture.

Taylor’s, which is one of the largest pre-university centres in Malaysia, providing British, Australian and Canadian education. has about 10,500 students this year, of which 18% to 20% are foreigners.

Vinayaka Missions University pro-chancellor Dr S. Sharavanan believes it is unlikely the economic slowdown will affect the higher education scenario, especially for bigger institutions offering professional programmes.

“As an investor, we see long-term prospects in the education sector in Malaysia beyond the current and anticipated economic slowdown,” he says.

An additional advantage of the economic slowdown can be an influx of foreign students into the country as Malaysia is seen as a relatively cheaper education hub compared with Britain, Australia and Singapore.

Currently, Malaysia has some 63,000 foreign students.

Very few education providers are listed on the local stock exchange. They are HELP International Corp Bhd, SEG International Bhd (SEGi) and Stamford College Bhd.

HELP International scored top marks for the financial year ended Oct 31, 2008 (FY08) with net profit jumping 22% to RM11.8mil compared with FY07.

SEGi’s financials also showed a marked improvement as net profit doubled to RM6.98mil for the nine months ended Sept 30 versus the previous corresponding period. Earnings were boosted by a gain from the disposal of a property in Kota Damansara, Selangor.
