Boasting a 150-year history, ARU continues to build its brand worldwide, with HELP CAT being its new partner. With three campuses in the UK (Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough), the university offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that promise innovative education for students.

“It is my intention that together we shall achieve international recognition as a model new university that is innovative, distinctive and excelling at what we do,” said ARU vice chancellor Prof Mike Thorne.

HELP CAT Diploma students who have completed either the two-year Diploma in Computer Science or Diploma in Business Information System, only need another two years to complete the ARU IT degree. That means a total of four years to obtain a UK qualification—saving in terms of cost and time.

Led by the head of HELP CAT Department of Information Technology, Dr Choong Yeow Wei, ARU IT programmes will be taught by a highly qualified team with vast industry experience. Choong, an IT expert, is also president and CEO of HELP CAT.

ARU Department of Computing and Technology head Prof Marcian Cirstea said ARU will be offering these courses at HELP CAT because IT courses have both global and local relevance.

“We make sure the skills that students obtain from these courses are what the IT industry needs,” he said.

“The focus of both degrees are different. The Computer Science degree focuses on creating software with industry-standard languages, creating mobile applications and mastering computer networking,” said David.

John David, senior lecturer at HELP CAT, said students would benefit from the latest partnership with ARU as it is currently the

shortest pathway. Those seeking to enter with STPM and A-Levels can complete the degree programme in three years under the 3+0 arrangement.

“As part of the articulation with ARU, students pursuing the Bachelor of Science (Hons) programme as well as diploma students, have the opportunity of a two-week study tour of ARU in Cambridge,” John said.

Another benefit is the three-month internship where students will obtain hands-on skills and be exposed to the real working world.

He explained that the Business Information Systems degree focuses on IT management, with 50% of its coursework being computing modules (or subjects) and the other 50% being business management modules.

Prof Cirstea said that these diploma students can utilise the progression route at HELP CAT to obtain an ARU degree without having to fork out the high living cost if they were to study in the UK.

“They have the opportunity to do a UK degree in their home country should they wish to do it,” he said.

He added that a student also has the option of transferring to ARU’s UK campus at any point during their course as the same course structure is taught here.

Prof Cirstea also assured that the quality of these courses would not be compromised as regular checks would be carried out to ensure students get the full ARU education experience.

One student who is looking forward to enrolling in the Business Information Systems degree programme is 20-year-old Suria Raaj.

Suria said there are many benefits from taking up this course such as the affordable price. “The course structure offered by ARU is also good,” he said.

Suria’s classmate Kelvin Wong Whye Hong, 20, said he is looking forward to a career in games software and that obtaining a degree from ARU would improve his job prospects.

As part of the programme, students pursuing these courses will have the opportunity to visit ARU’s Cambridge campus for two weeks during their final year. This fully paid study tour will allow the students to experience campus life at ARU by attending lectures and meeting ARU faculty members.

For those seeking admission using their STPM or A-Levels results, they can complete the ARU IT degree in three years under the 3+0 arrangement.
