A testament to our commitment in quality education
Taylor’s vision for the future in education has always been clear: to achieve balanced excellence and be recognised as a leading private university locally and globally.
We are humbled by the recent recognition as Malaysia’s and Southeast Asia's Top Private University, placing us among the world's top flight universities, a testament to our commitment in providing quality education for our students. But more than that, this success is built upon the strength and support of our community, encompassing dedicated lecturers and researchers, our partners in the industry, and most of all, the trust we earned from our students and their parents.
This time, we have broken yet another barrier as we now rank #89 in Asia, based on the latest QS Asia University Rankings 2021. As we leap 90 places since 2016, we're grateful to you for rising with us.
Delivering on the trust granted to us
In our pursuit to be progressive and relevant while maintaining the highest standards in teaching and learning, our academics are constantly innovating and pushing the bar, even in challenging times. Our recent QS 5 Stars for Online Learning achievement further affirms our quality in teaching and learning.
Taylor’s University continues to break barriers as the institution is now ranked 89 in Asia according to the latest QS Asia University Rankings 2021 exercise. Rising 90 ranks since 2016, the University made positive strides in Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, Internationalisation and Faculty – Student ratio. This achievement is the results of a massive team effort at Taylor’s and close engagement with industry partners.
Borderless Learning is flexible, students can easily move to ‘on campus’ study. It’s perfect for students unable to travel yet wishing not to delay studies.
Even though we can’t see each other face to face, it’s easy to share our questions and learning experience with lecturers and classmates in online classes.
The lecturers did wonderfully to ensure the studying process went smoothly. My finance lecturer in particular made lectures absolutely entertaining.
Borderless Learning brought new potential for learning situations. Study anywhere, anytime to build digital literacy, teamwork, and communication.
I love how I’m free to watch lectures in my own time. I also like being able to ask questions to my lecturer confidently behind a screen without pressure.
This unconventional and contemporary approach provides opportunities for lecturers to keep pace with current technologies and be more resourceful.
We got to learn multiple skills in preparation for the virtual exhibition: online platforms, web design, video editing and presenting in 360° view.
With Borderless Learning, educators can deliver their modules through innovative methods while students can learn at a comfortable and flexible pace.
To view our Press Release for QS Asia University Rankings:
"I really enjoy Ms. Lim's slides. Her explanations are very clear and understandable because she follows the presentation notes exactly. So, it's easier for me to refer and note the important points in each chapter."
"Although it can't compare to practical kitchen classes, I think our lecturers are trying their best to give us a better learning experience despite the crisis."
”Chef Sharizan proves that e-learning can be fun and not boring! He's very interactive and makes e-learning easy by updating ReWIND with weekly live lectures. The resources are also available from anywhere and at any time. As worrisome as e-learning was in the beginning, I find it better because it's convenient and flexible. It's not only fun, but it has also made me more disciplined and organised.“
"E-learning allows us to continue our programme during the MCO without much hurdle. This resulted in very minimal negative impact to all the students. However, my personal preference is still on-campus learning as more interaction and intellectual exchange can happen when physically meeting others."
"I love this method of learning as I have flexibility to complete my work and listen to the video. I can also ask Ms. Lim for further information if I did not understand any part of the video through WhatsApp."
"I'm satisfied with the e-learning as Ms. Lim’s videos are concise and clear. She wrote on the slides like how she normally writes on a whiteboard during physical lectures. The e-lectures feel just like normal lectures, except you can rewind when you zone out. I really appreciate Ms. Lim’s efforts on giving us her best during our learning sessions."
"E-Learning gives students flexibility with their time, making it convenient for students to study at their own pace, and gives shy students a place to voice their opinions. However, it's hard for students who need to use labs to study the slides or to learn clinical skills usually done through hands-on learning. Also, motivation to study may reduce as students have the liberty to focus only on a few lectures and not on the others."
"As a student in this advanced world, it's good that we're able to conduct our studies online regardless of the whole pandemic situation. Although some students have to adapt slowly to this, our lecturers have made it easier for us to gather all the information needed for classes through Zoom, Microsoft Teams, student portal, and etc. So far, it has been a pleasant experience conducted by excellent lecturers."
"Ms. Lim was punctual, encouraged communication, and made sure she finished what was planned for the day. She teaches every class in an ethical and professional manner. Live classes were also informed beforehand so we never panicked or missed out as we were aware of the timing. Recorded lectures were also informed to us via WhatsApp when TIMeS' notifcation wasn't working."
"I'm impressed by the e-learning efforts. TIMeS is organized. All the files are under subjects, assignment submission is there, etc. This helps students manage and track their work. By recording the class, we are never left behind as the classes will be saved on Microsoft Streams. I like how concerned Taylor's Computing School is as they would check on us every 2 to 3 weeks for any queries or difficulties faced."
"I'm satisfied that Taylor's didn't put our programme on hold otherwise international students would be in big trouble. We were able to connect more with the lecturers and the response rate from each of them were high. Doing the mock exams was a really good experience with no difficulty so far. I'm glad that measures are taken to keep the programme running to avoid us losing interest in academics."
