INTI’s pedigree of nurturing top students has been proven yet again as five of its students were selected to receive full scholarships at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) through the Golden Jubilee scholarship program.
The students, from diverse fields of study ranging from Business, Science and Engineering to Information Technology, attended the annual presentation ceremony hosted by Emeritus Professor Mark Wainwright, Patron of the Golden Jubilee Scholarships at UNSW. Since its inception in 1999, the Golden Jubilee scholarship has been awarded to 39 INTI students who received approximately AUD823,930 (RM2,677,772.50) in total.

“The lecturers at INTI International University (INTI IU) shared a lot of knowledge that I could never obtain from textbooks. They often gave useful advice, and taught us how to achieve success in all that we do. INTI IU also provides a good environment which is conducive to studies,” said Kang Chun Pin, a Golden Jubilee scholarship recipient from the university.
Another scholarship recipient, Lim Xin Ying, felt that her experience at INTI enabled her to adapt to life in Australia easily.
“My lecturers provided a lot of guidance to prepare me for studies overseas. The courses at INTI are also closely related to what we study at UNSW, so I was never lost or left behind in my studies at UNSW,” she said.
The UNSW Golden Jubilee Scholarship covers two years of tuition fees and there are 40 scholarships available per year. Outstanding international students are chosen from five selected polytechnics in Singapore and seven colleges and universities in Malaysia.
“Thank you for continuing to provide high level students that allow our Golden Jubilee Scholarship programme to be competitive and a high honour,” wrote Morgan Sutton, Financial Aid Officer, UNSW International in a message to INTI. “The (annual presentation) evening was a wonderful opportunity to bring the students together to celebrate their achievement and to hear about their progress and on-going successes at UNSW.”
Aside from numerous foreign and local scholarships, financial aid is available to students at INTI. INTI Edu-Assist is a new scheme for new applications for Foundation studies for the January and February 2012 intakes. It offers a partial grant on tuition fees to PTPTN loan recipients and applicants of Foundation programmes with the objective of minimizing the out-of-pocket tuition fees that students are required to cover.
Students benefit not only from INTI’s 25 years of experience and strong track-record, but also gain from the global synergy and resources that Laureate International Universities provides. INTI is part of Laureate International Universities, the world’s largest private education network with a presence in 29 countries, with more than 60 accredited campus-based and online universities and 130 campuses, serving over 675,000 students globally.
