Martin College provides pathway to further degrees
Martin College of Study Group in Australia is inviting more Sarawakian students to its doors.
According to Angel Wang international account manager for Study Group, Martin College has never had students from Sarawak before.
“We have over 50 per cent of domestic students so when international students come here, they don’t just hang out with other nationalities and they also hang out with the locals,” an advantage for students looking for a more international experience.
For those unfamiliar with Martin College, it is a vocational education and training (VET) provider with campuses in Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
It is part of Study Group, a worldwide specialist education company.
Additionally, Martin also shares campuses with their sister colleges Charles Sturt University Sydney Study Centre and Embassy English offering more people to build up connections and mingle with.
According to Wang, Martin College does not only prepare its students for industry but also assure sthem pathways to degrees.
“We want our students to be career ready after they graduate with us,” Wang said.
She explained that Martin College provided career counselors well-versed in their respective industries to help students towards employment.
Their doors are open for both SPM and STPM school leavers since the college has recognised diploma and certificate courses from its three schools; School of Business and Marketing, School of Design and Technologies and School of Tourism and Events.
The college is a member of Australian Council for Private Education and Training (ACPET), the national industry recognised for independent providers of post-compulsory education and training.
Established in 1976, this year the college reached a milestone by offering its own degree programmes.
Wang also stated students could use Martin College as a pathway to further their degrees in other universities in Australia.
English qualification is of course a must for any international student but Wang mentioned that Malaysian students could pass the Online Password Test instead of paying the hefty amount to sit for IELTS or TOEFL.
Wang added, “If students want to study at Martin without taking IELTS, they can also complete an Embassy course.”
If students are looking to take a Bachelor degree, however, their IELTS results should be at least 6.0.
Flexibility is the keyword to describe Martin College’s intakes as Wang said, “For the vocational courses we have ten intakes a year. For students who are going to use us as a pathway to go to other universities, we can literally follow the intake on what the university had.”
Plus, Martin College could also make way for those who are interested in short courses.
Commenting on studying at Martin College, Wang said “Australia is overall a great place to study and to live as well.”
