HOW TCF WORKS

Under the new curriculum structure, students are given the opportunity to mix and match modules, according to their strengths and interests. Students who come to Taylor's University will rise from the ground up and experience a multi-dimensional education, which is made of three building blocks: academic excellence, life skills and emotional well-being. These building blocks help nurture eight essential attributes that contribute to future-ready skills, namely:

PRIMARY MAJOR

The Primary Major of a bachelor degree programme is the fundamental and core body of knowledge of a discipline required for a degree. It consists of Common Core modules and Discipline Core / Specialization modules that typically require two (2) years of study for a 3-year degree programme.

UNIVERSITY CORE

The University Core module aims to develop critical thinking, build up social intelligence and cultivate civic responsibility as well broaden cultural knowledge with these modules. Besides the compulsory general modules required by the Ministry of Higher Education such as ethnical and cultural studies, the TCF includes two specially designed modules to strengthen students’ life skills and emotional well-being.

When these two modules are completed, students can take advantage of the Shine Award Programme, where they will further enrich their learning journey and cultivate capabilities employers want. Students who complete this programme will receive a Second Transcript to certify their co-curricular activities. 

FLEXIBLE STUDIES

The Flexible Study Component allows student to study modules in a related or unrelated field from the same or different school to complement the primary major. It may be completed in a form of free electives, extension, minor or a second major that typically requires at least one (1) semester of student learning time.

This approach to learning is immersive, flexible and adaptive to evolving demands of employers. Under this new curriculum structure, students are given the opportunity to mix and match modules. They can complement their primary major with:
