PETALING JAYA: In a bid to help more students access quality education, Veritas University College has launched an education fund which provides discounts on tuition fees worth thousands of ringgit without any bond.
Veritas, which is part of the BAC Education Group, said the Veritas Pandemic Education Fund would help minimise disruptions caused by Covid-19 to tertiary education.
Veritas director Raja Singham said he is a firm advocate of Unesco’s Sustainable Development Goals on quality education and that education is a means out of poverty.
“That was our motivation to spend millions on various education initiatives like SPMflix, Project Deep and Project Entrepreneur.
“In that same spirit, the Veritas Pandemic Education Fund was established to give all Malaysians an affordable pathway to further their education after SPM.
“I want to ensure that everyone has equitable access to quality education,” Raja Singham, who is also the BAC Education Group chairman, said in a statement.
Under this latest initiative, the all-inclusive tuition fees for the Foundation in Arts programme will be reduced to RM5,000. Students will not be bonded or required to further their studies at Veritas.
Those enrolling in the Foundation in Arts programme will also have access to online resources and the new hybrid campus, featuring flexible study modes that enable learning from anywhere at any time.
Upon completion of the programme, they may further their studies in other fields, including accounting and finance, business, digital transformation, branding and digital marketing, information technology and psychology.
Those who continue to pursue undergraduate degrees at Veritas will receive a 100% refund of their pre-university fees of RM5,000.
Additionally, the total fees for the three-year degree will only cost RM24,700.
