Second Chances with Private Universities

Published by Afterschool.my on Dec 22, 2020, 10:19 am

It’s been months since UPU released their results but are you still reeling from your application being rejected? Perhaps you’re waiting for the next UPU session, fingers still crossed for a chance to enroll in public universities? Or have you completely given up on your decision to continue your studies?

Whatever it is, chin up! Because you still have a second chance to chase after your dreams!

Have you ever considered private universities?

Private universities are a great alternative option if you are looking for a second chance. Not convinced? Here’s a few reasons why private universities are worth considering:

Practical courses

In most public universities, they provide numerous courses from a wide range of fields. Private universities do not provide the broad range of courses like public universities; however, they are more focused on their own respective specialized fields.

Courses in private universities tend to be more practical as private universities focus on preparing students for the workforce. One major aspect that separates private universities and a public university is the industry contacts and partners. Many private institutions work closely with different companies. Hence, students often have better chance to get hands-on experience outside classroom.

International exposure

Private universities have always had a higher international student enrolment compared to public universities. They also provide more international opportunities for their students to participate, either in international workshops or study abroad programs.

Cross-cultural references and global perspective allow students to enhance and broaden their view of the world through wide lenses. By mingling with students from all walks of life and culture and being involved with global programs, studying at private universities is a great choice to grow and expand your worldviews.

Easy entry

To enroll in a private university, the procedure is really easy. Unlike public universities where the competition is insanely tight, private universities are subjected to seat availability. Basically, as long as you meet the necessary requirements for your desired course, your place is almost certainly secured.

So, which private university should you consider?
