It also a Group of Eight University in Australia being a highly research-oriented University who regularly updates their syllabuses, modules and teaching methodology based on their research findings. We would like to present a few key factors behind our success.
Only Guaranteed Pathway program to Monash University
Students who enrol at for the Monash University Foundation Year at UCL after O’ Levels or Monash College Diploma programs in either Business, IT or Engineering after A’ Levels secure a guaranteed pathway to Monash University in Australia or Malaysia. We have successfully transferred more than 200 students in the past two years to complete much sought afterdegrees at Monash University.
Academic Quality and Excellence
This year UCL produced an additional 55 Global Awards of Excellence leading to garnering a total of 95 Global Awards of Excellence in the past two years. Monash Global Awards of Excellence are awarded to students who have achieved the highest average for a subject among all other Monash College providers world-wide, including those studying in Melbourne, Australia.
The main reason behind this success is our exceptionally qualified and competent faculty lead by our Dean of Academic Affairs Dr. Dhananjay Kulkarni PhD (University of California, USA), MSc (University of California, USA) BEng (University of Pune, India), who are committed to ensure that our students are provided with the coaching support and the learning experience required to excel in their programs of study. Ourfaculty is approved by Monash University and possess at least a MSc/MBA or PhD/ Reading for PhD in their respective fields of expertise and have several years of experience teaching in many reputed degree programmes including Monash. It is worth noting that 80% of our lecture panel are in-house full-time lecturers who are always available for our students. Their commitment, dedication and efforts have been proven worthwhile with outstanding student achievements at UCL and at Monash Australia.
An interesting fact about our faculty is that the Program Coordinators for the ‘Monash College Diploma’ (MCD)and Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) are alumni from Monash University. The experiences they have gathered during their tenure at Monash University have been extremely useful in adding value to students the Monash way, with their innovative teaching methods and providing a superior learning experience to our students.
At UCL we adopt the small-group teaching methodology where we maintain internationally recommended classroom sizes. This small-group teaching method enables our lecturers to give their utmost attention to each student thereby our students receive 100% individual attention during every lecture. This classroom set-up also enables greater interaction among lecturer and student, encourages more group discussions between students and ultimately leading to a great student-lecturer relationship which we always strive to achieve.
An Unmatched Campus Life
Our vision is to produce resourceful, enterprising and sought-after graduates. We believe that to bring out the best in every student, a Campus must provide students with an experience that would allow them to develop their soft skills apart from the technical skills they acquire via their studies. We are committed to providing a holistic experience of an Unmatched Campus Life that focuses on extra-curricular activitiesincluding a range of sports such as Basketball, Football, Futsal, Badminton, Rugger, Cricket, Netball, Swimming, etc., programmes to enhanceleadership and communication skills, foster team work and inculcate social responsibility. The UCL Student Council worksclosely with the UCL management and faculty to organise and conduct both indoor and outdoor events and activities to develop student engagement and enhance the student experience at UCL.
UCL conducts the Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) and the Monash College Diploma (equivalent to the first year of the degree) in Business, Engineering and IT.
