The Best Education Starts With a Leading University

Most of us get one shot at a degree and we invest up to four years of our lives (and in most cases a considerable amount of money) in earning it. We most likely will make friends and connections in those university years that will influence and shape the trajectories of our lives. The reputation of the university you attend could influence the chances of your resume making it to an employer's desk and can influence hiring manager in an interview. Choosing the right university is therefore a hugely consequential decision and not one to be taken lightly. So how do you make your selection?

Good universities are built from the ground up by visionaries who can articulate and adhere to a strict ethos of academic excellence. To attract the best students these schools must have professors that are leaders in their research and teaching areas as well as top notch facilities to ensure that developing minds can have the creative and intellectual tools they need. Lastly, they need to be located in an environment that will culturally nourish the students while they learn.

If these ingredients are in place, the students that the university produces will be high achievers and prominent and successful in their chosen careers. So, when looking for the best learning institution, it is best to start with the alumni and see how they have fared since leaving the school. You can often find links on school websites for data on this or you can ask the university to send you details on notable ex-students. Online research can also reveal information on graduates including starting salaries and career areas that they have gone into.

Leading Universities in Malaysia 2021

Open University Malaysia (OUM) is Malaysia's first open and distance learning (ODL) institution but what really sets it apart is its ability to capitalise on technology to provide a seamless learning environment that allows learners to pursue their studies without compromising their lifestyle.

Established in 2000, the university has over the years introduced innovative ways of delivering academic programmes. The learning management platform, MyINSPIRE, is one such innovation, whereby through the platform learners can interact with their facilitators as well as peers. Specially constructed self-instructional modules are made available to learners throughout the semester. Together with lesson plans, these enable learners to study at their own pace. The face-to-face component is not neglected as learners can meet their facilitators online through a series of video meetings.
