Manchester Metropolitan University hosts workshops in Malaysia!


In early April, NCUK University Partner, Manchester Metropolitan University conducted a series of academic workshops at two of our Study Centres in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Asia Pacific Schools and Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park hosted these workshops allowing representatives from Manchester Metropolitan University to speak to 50+ current and prospective NCUK students about the opportunities available at the university.

These workshops began with a presentation on Circular Fashion & Marketing from Dr Patsy Perry, Manchester Fashion Institute) and Ms Rachel Kelly, Manchester School of Art (pictured left) who provided an overview of the major trends in the fashion industry today and the related degrees available for undergraduate students.

This was a fascinating presentation and gave attending students who are interested in entering the design/fashion industry a better understanding of the subject.

The second part of these workshops was conducted by members of Manchester Metropolitan University’s business faculty, which included Dr Dario Tom Dieck and Dr Konstantia Litsiou. Their session gave students information on setting up a new business, how this is done and the career opportunities in the ever-changing world of business. Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School is a triple-accredited business school, making it an ideal progression option for students who want to develop their business skills.

After completion of these workshops, non-NCUK students who attended were provided with insights about the NCUK International Foundation Year and how studying this high-quality qualification can allow them to progress to universities like Manchester Metropolitan University.

We were delighted to welcome one of NCUK’s founder university partners, Manchester Metropolitan University to Malaysia and conduct fantastic workshops at Tenby Schools Setia Eco Park and Asia Pacific School. These workshops will undoubtedly help our students understand their university degree choices as well as their career options and industry trends. I’m sure that students will benefit from this workshop and have a better understanding of their future career paths.
