For those looking to live the American Dream, there is no better way to experience first-hand American education than at HELP University’s American Degree Transfer Program (ADTP). You will learn more than just theoretical knowledge but gain practical knowledge through group projects, role-playing exercises, assignments, presentations, and field trips. Gone are the obsession with focussing only on passing exams as ADTP students are exposed to an all-rounded teaching syllabus that sparks their critical thinking, creativity, communication skills and collaborative abilities.
Why study at HELP University’s ADTP Department?
The United States and Canada has always been the top-of-choice destination for studying abroad. The journey begins with a two-year study at HELP’s ADTP Department that prepares them for their undergraduate life abroad. After which, students will transfer to the United States or Canada to complete their degree in the university of their choice. With more than one hundred partner universities in the USA and Canada to choose from, ADTP students are truly spoiled for choice.
HELP University’s ADTP emphasizes a unique learning style based on the liberal arts curriculum that promotes academic freedom and continuous learning rather than depending solely on exams. “As a product of the ADTP and American university system myself, “said Dr. Kit, “I have thoroughly benefitted from such a holistic learning style.” That is why when students choose the liberal arts curriculum, they are encouraged to enrol in courses outside their chosen major. Dr. Kit, a graduate of HELP University’s ADP himself said, “My experiences as an ADTP student have given me the freedom to go beyond the classroom as I explored various historical places of worship, searched for distant planets through a telescope, and grappled with complex ethical dilemmas through the use of sci-fi television. Indeed, HELP’s ADTP students are constantly stepping out of our own comfort zone and developing into well-rounded, future-proof individuals.”
There is also no need for students to declare a major until they are ready to do so. Even when they have declared a major, students can easily “change lanes” and switch to another major without losing any credits in the process. When they are finally ready to embark on the next step of their academic journey in the American continent, the choice of majors are limited only to the student’s imagination. HELP’s ADTP students have pursued majors ranging from tried and true pathways such as Business, Psychology, Computer Science, and Engineering, to the unique and creative majors such as Anthropology, European History, Gender Studies, and Sociology. The phrase “freedom of choice” is not just a buzz word, but a reality for many of HELP ACE’s students.
We are proud to be the only institution in Malaysia that has a unique transfer partnership with the University of Waterloo (UW), Ontario, Canada for students whom are keen on majoring in Actuarial Science. The Faculty of Mathematics in UW has the largest concentration of mathematical and computer and data science talent in the world.
HELP ADTP students also have the opportunity to participate in UW’s co-op program. Through the co-op program, students take their courses like any regular student. The difference is that co-op students take a break from their studies every four months to embark on four-month work terms in jobs located primarily in Ontario. Only HELP’s ADTP has this unique arrangement with UW. ACE students who opt for the co-op programme in UW will essentially gain up to two years of valuable work experience from reputable companies which in turn gives them a higher chance of securing high-paying jobs in the field of Actuarial Science upon graduation.
Getting started on your academic journey begins with HELP’S ADTP. Students who have finished their SPM or the equivalent can enrol directly into the programme to kick-start their journey to realize their American Dream.
