Many education aspects have remained uncertain since the Movement Control Order (MCO) came into effect in Malaysia in mid-March, including students’ higher education progress, decisions about the right education pathways and concerns about course fees.
To ease families’ financial burdens and keep the higher studies momentum going, SEGi University and Colleges has pioneered a new initiative that enables new students to defer their payments for the first six months of studies at zero per cent interest rate.
The Zero First 6 campaign is a convenient payment programme that facilitates the continuity of tertiary education by enabling students to enrol into any of the SEGi campuses or programmes and start studying first.
Students will only start paying from the seventh month and the deferred balance shall be spread across the ensuing instalment payment plans to ease any financial burdens that families may continue to face post-pandemic.
This optional payment scheme complements existing flexible payment programmes such as the Jom ke SEGi Scheme, which allows students to study first and *pay within 36 months upon graduation or other instalment payment options available at all campuses.
Offered exclusively to Malaysian students, the Zero First 6 campaign also comes with a *rebate of up to RM6,000 until 30 June for all new student enrolments.
In addition to this, there are various scholarship schemes for all types of students such as Ace Scholarship that provides a certain percentage of rebate for the number of As scored in SPM and STPM examination. Students with 10As in SPM and 4As in STPM also qualify for a full scholarship at selected campuses.
SPM leavers can also choose to apply for the Foundation Grant to pursue their Pre-University studies under a full scholarship and progress to a degree programme of their choice upon completion. There are also sports scholarship, merit-based scholarships for well-performing students.
As a higher education institution, SEGi University and Group of Colleges have always prided itself in providing affordable quality global education to school leavers and adult learners in the fields of Accounting, Finance and Business Management, Medicine, Dentistry, Optometry, Pharmacy, Allied Health Sciences, Engineering, Information Technology, Creative Design, Communications, Hospitality & Tourism Management, and Early Childhood among others.
With a population of 20,000 local and international students, SEGi stands as one of the most established private higher education institutions in Malaysia that has pioneered various study initiatives for all types of learners. For instance, SEGi was among the pioneer institutions that introduced blended learning, which combines classroom and online learning, in addition to the fully online or conventional study modes, providing flexibility to learners at various levels.
SEGi emerged in the top 54% of the 2020 QS World University Rankings: Asia and obtained the highest 5 Star rating in the categories of Teaching, Facilities, Social Responsibility, and Inclusiveness. It was also awarded a 3 Star Rating in the 2020 Malaysia Research Assessment (MyRA) recently.
