Under the MoU, students from Institut Sinaran will gain from a progression pathway that allows them to further their studies at ICS, where they can pursue the 3+0 UK degree programmes locally while also enjoying a progression discount. Initiatives that will support this includes programme promotion through various events, establishing an academic framework for the pathway and transfer of credits, and ensuring courses remain relevant for credit transfer.
