University of Hertfordshire’s Link Tutors Reinforce High Quality of INTI’s Business Degree

June 27, 2012

Regular visits by link tutors from INTI College Sarawak’s partner universities abroad add a unique dimension to the overall teaching and delivery of degree programmes at the College. A recent visit by Christine Seamark, a link tutor from the UK’s University of Hertfordshire (UH), was an affirmation of the university’s ongoing commitment to support the Bachelor of Arts (Hons) in Business Administration programme offered at INTI.


UH was recently selected as one of the world’s top 100 universities aged under 50 by Times Higher Education (THE) in a new addition to its World University Rankings portfolio. The rankings are based on excellence across teaching, research, citations, industry income and international outlook. UH scored highly for the citing of its academic research on a global scale and for its international outlook and mix.

Commenting on the link tutor visits, Ivy Lau, Chief Executive and Principal of INTI College Sarawak said, “The visits by Ms Seamark and other link tutors go a long way in ensuring that our students enjoy the same learning experience as students at the University of Hertfordshire in the UK and is an integral part of INTI’s Quality Management Processes. Our students get the opportunity to learn from leading academics from UH and our programme manager and academic team benefit from the support they receive in managing and delivering the programme.”
