Sharing is caring :)

你是否有想过要创建自己的网站?梦想过打造下一个可以与 Facebook 或 Instagram 媲美的社交媒体?

那电脑科学系(Computer Science)很可能就是最适合你的课程!

首先,大部分学生们都不太了解电脑科学系(Computer Science)和信息技术系(Information Technology, IT)之间的差别,因为这两个科系的类型十分相似。但其实这两个科系在所需的技能上有少许的差别,所吸引的学生类型也都不一样。

信息技术更多专注于电脑硬件而不是软件;安装、组织和维护该电脑系统,以及设计、操作网络和数据库等操作都比较倾向于信息技术的方面。

电脑科学也可被称为“计算机科学”,是一门包括了电脑计算以及电脑信息处理的科系,重点则在于电脑软件设计,其中就包括了如何使用数字演算法来增加电脑编程的效率。如果你对于信息技术方面的职业有兴趣,你不一定需要拥有电脑科学的学士学位,信息技术的职业领域大部分时间都处于商业环境中,你将会在其中安装内部网络以及电脑系统,可能还会进行编程!

拥有电脑科学学位可为你带来许多的就业机会,当中就包括从商业公司到游戏设计公司等等。

总结来说:电脑科学系和信息技术系当中的差别在于

  • 信息技术注重电脑科技方面的应用(特别是在企业管理中)
  • 电脑科学则是对于数学和基础上有更优先的考量(编程软件)

众所周知,科技已经在飞快的发展,以至于电脑科学已成为了当今世界的必需品。试想想倘若没有电脑科学的存在,如今的交通也不会是现在的样子,我们此时此刻在使用的电子设备也将会不一样。

因此,社会对于电脑科学系毕业生的需求一直以来都很高,因为他们可涉及到的领域很广。

电脑科学所涉及到的领域有什么?

人工智能

让电脑/电子设备拥有思考、感知、决策和行动的能力

电脑安全系统

电子设备及网络,包括互联网在内的安全性

软件工程

注重于软件系统的设计与开发,是电脑科学以及工程学的结合

电脑网络

通过数据通信和网络技术来设计、安装、配置和维护网络系统

在电脑科学系里,学校为了让毕业生们能更好地适应新技术以及新的理念,通常都会把基础课程分为三大类:

  1. 设计和构建软件
  2. 开发一些能有效解决电脑方面问题的方式,例如:
  • 将信息储存在数据库里
  • 通过网络发送数据
  • 对于安全问题提供一些新的应对方式
  1. 设计并且改进使用电脑的方式
  2. 想方法应对以下领域的特殊挑战:
  • 机器人
  • 电脑视觉
  • 数字取证

备注:并非所有电脑科学系都有提供专业主修课程

电脑科学系的升学途径又是如何?

Study Dietetics Degree in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

Ever wondered how significant of an impact food we eat makes on our health? Fascinated with how a simple switch in your diet can help prevent or control health problems? A degree in Dietetics might just be what you’re looking for! 

Dietetics is a field of science that studies how food and nutrition affects overall human health. With a strong emphasis on public health, dietetics functions to educate humans on the importance of smart dietary choices in everyday life.

What do dieticians do?

A professional who chooses to work in this field is known as a dietician. As a dietician, your most prominent responsibility would be to provide your clients and patients with customised meal plans for patients with chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity. As an example, a patient with diabetes may come in for a consult where you would be required to provide them with a guide on what they should or should not eat as a diabetic. However, you may also provide advice and guidance to clients without medical conditions- just looking to lead a healthier lifestyle. 

Roles and responsibilities of dieticians might include: 

  • Collaborating with food manufactures to improve the nutritional quality of prepared meals 
  • Researching how dietary changes affect health 
  • Improving the understanding and accuracy of food labels 
  • Increasing public awareness of nutritional habits and standards 
  • Provide medical nutrition therapy or nutritional programs for patients in institutions such as hospitals and nursing care facilities

What’s the difference between a Dietician and a Nutritionist?

Here are the key differences between a Dietician and a Nutritionist: 

Nutritionists work with clients in promoting healthy eating habits and a balanced lifestyle to improve the quality of health. Clients that work with nutritionist are generally healthy people, looking for advice and guidance in improving their daily eating habits. 

However, Dieticians generally work with clients with serious health issues such obesity, diabetes and eating disorders by offering expert advice on eating habits. They aid their clients in developing the best diet plan to help manage their health conditions. 

Skills Needed to Become a Dietician

  • Good communication skills 

      As a dietician, you must be able to work well with patients and clients to discuss their medical or diet concerns. Similar to doctors, dieticians should be able to communicate efficiently with their patients and clients. You should be able to listen tentatively and answer any questions they may have while soothing their worries or concerns. At times, dieticians may also work with loved ones of their patients. 

  • Problem-solving skills 

Next, most times dieticians are faced with clients or patients that are looking to solve a problem; either a healthy concern or a medical concern. A dietician would then have  to look critically at problems and come up with effective solutions. A dietitian is responsible for finding solutions to some of the issues that patients may face in today’s age such as not having access to certain types of food or living in a condition that lacks proper kitchen appliances. 

  • Compassion & a positive mindset

It is extremely important for you to be compassionate with a positive mindset when dealing with patients from different backgrounds with various needs. Health and wellbeing may be a sensitive topic to many people. As a dietitian, you will deal with different patients and their needs can be overwhelming. You will be looked to for guidance and advice for their specific needs. In some cases, you may also be required to build confidence in your patients to help them lead a healthier lifestyle. 

What Will You Study In A Dietetics Degree?

A degree in Dietetics will equip you with skills and knowledge required for dietetic practice including the topics of food, human anatomy and nutrition. Generally, you will be learning modules such as physiology, biochemistry, human nutrition, psychology, physiology and nutrition therapy. You will also learn the methods of creating a diet plan for average individuals along with individuals with health conditions. 

Some examples of core subjects you would undergo in a Dietetics degree include:

  1. Human Biology 
  2. Organic Chemistry 
  3. Food Safety and Regulations 
  4. Sports Nutrition 
  5. Food Service Management 
  6. Pharmacology 
  7. Medical Nutrition Therapy 

You will be generally addressed through a variety of mediums including class tests, practicals, reports, workshops, essay, problem-based learning, projects, presentations, thesis and written examinations. 

Upon completing all the modules in your degree, you will be required to undergo practicum for your last year. Typically, your practicum period would consist of rotations between hospitals for clinical dietetics practicum, government and private facility for community nutrition practicum and the food service industry for food service management. 

Career Pathway of a Dietetics Graduate in Malaysia

Upon graduating with a Dietetics degree, you may pursue careers in various scope of work such as:

a) Patient care & consultancy 

  • Government, private hospitals and clinics
  • Nursing homes, dialysis center, rehabilitation homes

Sharing is caring :)

Many students are not aware of the rewarding programme in real estate management that only a few universities in Malaysia offer. Even though most students go for familiar programmes, this programme might prove worthy for those of you with a particular interest for the property sector in Malaysia. 

In fact, did you know that the richest people in the world are involved in real estate in some way? The demand for property and real estate has been growing over the past few years and is expected to keep growing all over the world, including Malaysia.

为什么选修牙科系?

选择牙科学的好处

1. 优厚的薪资

首先,你可能会对牙医所能收获的薪资感到惊叹。根据自身的能力,牙科系毕业生通常都会在完成学业后获得一笔可观的收入。

2. 市场需求量大

不得不提,牙科系是近年来市场上需求量最高的科系之一。随着国家的人口增加,人民们对牙医的需求量也越来越大。

3. 接触不同的人

再来,身为一名牙医每天工作时有机会接触到不同人,并能扩大人脉和体验社交的乐趣。身为一名牙医让你有机会学习如何与不同人相处,每天都需要与陌生人和同事们交流以及沟通,让你每天过上充实的生活。

选择牙科学的短处

1. 一样的日常

众所周知,牙医几乎每日都做着有规律的工作。对有的人而言,反复相同的工作性质相对而言会有些无聊,因此缺乏刺激和接触新事物的新鲜感。

2. 高学费

此外,众所周知牙科学的学费不低。完成整个牙科学的学费金额绝对不便宜,对于经济方面有困难的学生而言,这将会是个难题。

3. 与人相处

  • 注意力高度集中 – 身为一名牙医你需要能注重每个小细节,并且能够时时刻刻全神贯注在治疗上
  • 亲力亲为 – 牙医显然需要具备良好的手动技能,因为在进行每项治疗时他们都需要用到双手。因此,你应该对你灵巧的手动技能抱有信心。
  • 沟通能力 – 在医疗领域工作很常需要你与人交谈,这当中包括了同事以及客户。所以杰出的沟通能力是保持良好关系的主要因素之一,这样一来还能间接塑造优良的工作环境。

Important Questions Students Should Ask About Studying in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

Malaysia is undoubtedly one of the most popular study destinations in Asia for many international students. However, before you start your dream course in Malaysia, it is important to ask the right questions and get the necessary information in order to experience an enriching study experience with no regrets. 

Below, we have provided for you the most important questions international students should ask about studying in Malaysia and the answers to these questions to help you kick-start your education journey in Malaysia.

1. How to Choose a University to Study in Malaysia?

When choosing a university, the most famous university does not mean it will guarantee you success. You need to choose a university that is the best match for you which will provide you with the skills that you are looking for. Oftentimes, different universities have different entry requirements, course structures and tuition fees, which are some of the crucial things you need to look at.

Some students also like to look at rankings of the university when choosing a university. Although Malaysia does not have an official ranking system, the MQA and Ministry of Malaysia does have a rating system for universities in Malaysia called the SETARA Rating System. So this is also something students could look at before deciding on the university. In addition to this, it is necessary for you to check if the program you are looking to pursue in the university is accredited by the relevant bodies

Campus culture is one of the most important things that can heavily influence your overall study experience. Choosing a university that has an English speaking and a culturally diverse environment can be highly beneficial for you as an international student to make you feel more accepted and at home at your campus. Good thing is most Malaysian private universities offer diversity and a good English speaking environment, so you have many options to choose from! 

Choosing the right university for you in Malaysia can take a lot of time and difficult decisions. Hence, talking to counsellors who are experienced in this field can be quite beneficial for you. If you need assistance in choosing a university in Malaysia, do not hesitate to contact Excel Education.

2. What are the Minimum Entry Requirements to Study in Malaysia?

As per Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS), international students are required to have a minimum twelve years of education with a national or international examination recognized by the Ministry of Education Malaysia, in order to be eligible to apply for diploma or degree programmes in Malaysia.

For international students from non-English speaking countries, you will be required to prove your efficiency in English through English Language Qualifications such as IELTS, TOEFL, MUET, CAE and PTE. The typical IELTS score for international students

This is often the most convenient option for international students, due to close proximity to the campus. If you require on campus accommodation it is important to indicate that you require accommodation from the university when accepting your course offer. Most universities offer a range of accommodation options, from single bedrooms, shared bedrooms to even shared apartments. However, you will need to abide by certain rules, for example some on campus stays do not allow students to cook or bring in overnight visitors. 

Off-campus (preferred by most students) – A lot of students prefer to rent apartments outside of the university with friends or housemates. Apartments and condominiums usually have 3-4 bedrooms, a living hall, and bathrooms. When choosing a stay off campus it is important for you to check whether there is a mrt/lrt station nearby or even buses to make your daily commute easier. You can search for off campus accommodation from one of the most popular accommodation search websites, iProperty

The rent prices generally fall  between the range of RM600-RM1000 for students in the city of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, if you choose on campus accommodation or choose to share an apartment off campus with your friends. 

6. Can International Students Work and Study in Malaysia?

The answer is yes! However international students are only allowed to work part time for a maximum of 20 hours per week ONLY during semester breaks or holidays of more than 7 days at restaurants, mini marts and hotels. Please also note that you are required to get approval from the Department of Immigration beforehand, which has to be done through your enrolled university. 

The type of work students can be involved in is also very limited, as the Department of Immigration does not allow students to work as cashiers, singers, or masseurs. 

For more information you can refer to Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGs).

7. Can International Students Work in Malaysia After Graduation?

Yes. The first step to gain full employment in Malaysia is to secure a job offer from a company in Malaysia. The employer will then be responsible for getting you a work permit and advising you on the requirements documents which must be submitted in order to process a successful application. 

If your application is successful, you are provided with an employment pass which is valid for a minimum of two years and a maximum of 5 years. 

However successful completion of the application is not guaranteed as there are several terms to be met in order to be eligible for a work permit, for instance your age and your income. This is mainly because Malaysian government aims to aim and retain talent in the country by prioritizing locals while giving jobs.

8.Can International Students Study Part-Time in Malaysia?

Currently, international students are only allowed to enrol for full-time courses in Malaysia. However, since your schedule depends merely on your academic course, you can choose subjects in a way that is more convenient for you, if you want to pursue other hobbies or interests in between. 

9. What is the University Application Process in Malaysia?

A. Research course and university 

The first step is to obviously research a course and university to study in Malaysia. 

B. Submit documents 

The second step is to make sure you meet the entry requirements of the course at your preferred university. If you do, and if the tuition fees fit your budget you can proceed with submitting documents for your application. You are also required to pay a specific amount for application fees while submitting your application. 

Listed below are the documents Malaysian universities typically require you to submit;

  • Completed Application Form
  • Passport size photograph
  • 1 copy of passport 
  • Certified copy of qualification transcripts
  • Application fee

Please note that the pre-arrival medical screening has to be done 3 months prior to your entry in Malaysia and not before that. 

C. Receive and Accept Offer Letter

After you have submitted all the documents and paid all the fees required to process your application you will be receiving an offer letter which you need to accept and revert back to the university. 

D. Visa Application

Next, you are required to apply for a student pass or student visa which is done through your university. You are required to  submit the following documents for your visa application.

  • Medical report
  • EMGs Student pass processing fee
  • EMGS Medical insurance fee
  • EMGS Medical screening fee
  • EMGS eVAL Fee

Please note that the pre-arrival medical screening has to be done 3 months prior to your entry in Malaysia and not before that. 

E. Receive Electronic Visa Approval Letter (eVAL)

The next step is to wait for your eVAL which often takes 3-4 weeks to process after submitting all the documents. Meanwhile, you can track your visa application status through the EMGS website

After you receive your eVAL it is now time for you to book your tickets and start your journey into an enriching experience in Malaysia as an international student.

马来西亚学习A-Levels的顶尖私立大学

Sharing is caring :)

什么是A-Levels?

A-Levels是英国普通中等教育证书考试高级水平课程,也是英国学生的大学入学考试课程。A-Levels通常需要 15-24个月的时间才能完成,具体取决于不同大学要求和入学人数。有些大学还提供12个月的速成课程。A-Levels课程要求学生学习3门或4门主科科目并参加毕业考试。学生的考试成绩及其所选的A-Levels课程在很大程度上决定了是否能够深入的了解所选择的大学课程。A-Levels提供了广泛的可选科目,包括:

  • 科学
  • 物理
  • 化学
  • 生物
  • 法律
  • 应用信息通信技术
  • 数学
  • 高等数学
  • 会计
  • 英语
  • 经济

A-level考试机构分别有:

  1. Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA)
  2. Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations (OCR)
  3. Edexcel (Edexcel Pearson – London Examinations)
  4. Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC)
  5. Council for the Curriculum, Examinations & Assessment (CCEA)

为什么要选着A-level?

对于已完成 SPM 的学生来说,A-Levels仍然是一个值得选择的“大学预科课程”。学习 A-Levels的好处是:

- 课程证书被全世界几乎所有的大学作为招收新生的入学标准

A-Levels课程证书被世界各地的大学接受,包括澳大利亚、英国、新加坡、加拿大和美国。 因此,学习A-Levels是希望出国留学的学生们的最佳选择。此外,A-Levels成绩优异的学生还有可能申请国际奖学金到海外大学学习。

- 可以更广泛的选择本科专业

其他大学预科课程,如Foundation甚至Diploma,都可能会限制你在本科课程上的选择。而A-Levels可以让你选择更广泛的专业。例如,有些学生还在考虑选择科学或商科作为未来的专业,这时学习A-Level 将是很好的方向,选择适合大部分大学和专业的课程,给自己今后发展留下比较大的选择空间。

*注意:选择错误的A-Levels课程组合将会限制学生进入未来想要念的大学专业,欢迎你咨询我们的大学升学辅导员以协助你选择课程组合。

- 学生可以更精心专研所选课程

与SPM需要学习9门科目不同,A-Levels只需要最少选择3门科目。因此,学生可以更加专注于学习所选课程,并对所学习的课程有更深入的理解。

A-Levels对你来说是好的选择吗?

A-Levels通常被认为是最难的大学预科课程之一,尽管它只需要学习最少 3 门科目。 因此,了解A-Level是否适合自己非常重要。

你应该选择A-Levels:

你不应该选择A-Levels:

如果你是个应试能力强的学生

如果你应试考试能力不强,喜欢课程作业

希望未来学习课程更广泛

不喜欢死记硬背

希望学习更有竞争力的专业,例如法律、药学、兽医学

专注于更实用的专业,如烹饪、设计、建筑

If you have failed your SPM, you will NOT meet the minimum requirement to gain entry into any public or private universities for MQA Accredited Programs. If you wish to, you would have to retake SPMto fulfill the minimum requirements of either 3C’s or 5Cs.

BTEC Programs have increasingly become popular among students as an alternative to A-Level programs.

However, do keep in mind that BTEC Programs are not MQA Accredited!

Benefits of BTEC Programs

How to Earn a Master in Clinical Psychology in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

The world of clinical psychology has grown tremendously throughout these years and will continue to grow and evolve due to its focus on the ever-changing needs of human and brand new approaches within the context of mental health. 

Are you someone that has an interest in the human mind and behaviour? Do you enjoy working with others? Do you have the natural instinct to help others become better? 

A career as a Clinical Psychologist may just be perfect for you!

What is Clinical Psychology?

Known to be one of the largest and most common areas of psychology, Clinical Psychology is the study of a specialty that provides clinical or counselling services to detect, assess and treat various types of mental illnesses including emotional and behavioural disorders. Clinical Psychologists are trained with adequate skills and knowledge to work with a wide demographic of individuals. Becoming a Clinical Psychologist is extremely important in today’s society as you will play a crucial role in showing us how and why we behave the way we do. 

What do Clinical Psychologists do?

Clinical Psychologists identify mental, emotional and behavioural problems faced by clients in their daily lives. They conduct psychological tests, observations, interviews in order to diagnose pre-existing disorders or comorbids of a potential one. They will then work with the client in developing the most effective course of treatment, focusing on managing the client’s needs. Clinical Psychologists also conduct follow up sessions with their clients to ensure the improvement of their quality of life along with the effectiveness of the course of treatment, to make changes if needed. Despite many misconceptions, it is important to understand that clinical psychologists are NOT qualified to prescribe medications to treat mental illness.

Roles and Responsibilities of a Clinical Psychologist include: 

  • Identify and diagnose psychological, emotional and behavioural issues
  • Develop and implement treatment plans to help improve client’s condition
  • Work alongside client to establish goals of session and plan course of treatment to achieve the goals and needs of patients 
  • Monitor client’s progress throughout sessions
  • Conduct research on various treatment approaches
  • Publish research findings in the form of journals to aid future psychologists
  • Creating and administering programs to treat and prevent social problems

What’s the Difference between a Clinical Psychologist, Psychiatrist, and Counselor?

Clinical Psychologist 

Psychiatrist 

Counselor 

Spends time assessing, diagnosing, treating, researching, and preventing mental health issues

Assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health issues are within the area of competence of a psychiatrist

Does not have a medical background

Has a medical background

Does not have a medical background

Treatment is done through psychotherapy (e.g. successive consultation sessions)

Able to prescribe medication in treating mental health issues

Does not provide psychological assessments and diagnosis.

What do you learn in a Master of Clinical Psychology?

Most Master’s programmes offered in private universities focus on research, theory and practicality. You will dive into a wide range of topics that include child & adult development, diagnostic testing, clinical research as well as internal and external practicum. This programme is generally divided into 3 parts for assessment: coursework, research project and practical training. Before completion of your Master’s degree- you will usually be tested for your competency in clinical diagnostic and clinical therapy in diagnosing and treating mental health issues in hands-on, real-world settings. 

Clinical Psychologists are able to work in a variety of settings upon completion of a Master’s program. Many graduates move on to work in hospitals, clinics, private centres, universities and even high schools. You will be able to use your expertise in many different contexts for different purposes. 

Some of the career pathways that you can perform, besides being a Clinical Psychologist include: 

  • Career Counselor
  • School Counselor 
  • Counselling Psychologist 
  • Family Therapist 
  • Marriage Therapist 

*Note: Keep in mind that different career pathways chosen may have varying requirements. 

Why do you need a Master in Clinical Psychology?

Earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology will only provide you with the foundation that you need, to progress towards becoming a specialized Psychologist. You will need a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, typically taking 2 years to become a Registered Clinical Psychologist. Many Clinical Psychologists also often progress to earn a doctoral degree which requires an investment of about 6 years. However, certification guidelines to become a Clinical Psychologist vary tremendously depending on the country you wish to practice in. 

In Malaysia, Clinical Psychologists are required to register with the Health Ministry under the Allied Health Professions Act to be able to practice. Besides that, you are also advised to register with the Malaysian Society of Clinical Psychology (MSCP) as it means that your training is acknowledged, and that the MSCP would be able to endorse you! Further requirements would be that the member fulfills 1500 supervised hours during his/ her master degree studies, of which 700 are direct hours of work with their clients.
