TAYLOR’S University welcomed 16 high achievers into the ranks of its prestigious Taylor’s World Class Scholarship (TWCS) award programme, growing its reach to close to 200 youths since its inception.

The 16 recipients of this year’s scholarship received their award at a special ceremony at Taylor’s Lakeside Campus on Oct 11.

The Taylor’s World Class Scholarship, now in its 14th year, is designed to provide holistic developmental support for recipients, combining a full scholarship with a guaranteed internship or a place in the management trainee programme with world-class industry partners.

The 2019 industry partners are BASF Petronas, BDO, BMW, CIMB Group, DwP, Edelman, Four Seasons, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, L’Oréal, Mandarin Oriental, Maybank, Microsoft, Mondelez, Oracle and Veritas Design Group. Approximately more than RM19 million has been invested in Taylor’s World Class Scholarship award programme to date.

Taylor’s University Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Michael Driscoll said when it was founded 14 years ago, the Taylor’s World Class Scholarship award programme aimed to address relevant work history and a holistic approach to education.

“Our success lies in our pursuit to provide continuous holistic education for students over the past 50 years, through integrated new learning approaches as well as skills-based methodology to develop holistically balanced graduates.

“I’m proud to share that our effort has been recognised by employers. With the latest results released by QS; the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020; Taylor’s University has been acknowledged as the best private university for employer reputation in the country.

“Taylor’s University was recognised for this indicator in two other ranking exercises as well; QS World University Rankings 2020 and Asia University Rankings 2019,” he said.

Apart from receiving insights from an industry level education approach, recipients will also be able to further improve their soft skills, such as leadership and time management skills through a structured training programme crafted during their internship placement.
