ALFA College Awarded ‘Tier 5 EXCELLENT’ Rating on MyQuest

ALFA College was awarded the ‘Tier 5 Excellent’ rating in the Overall College category of the Malaysian Quality Evaluation System for Private Colleges (or MyQUEST) for 2012/2013 by the Ministry of Education. The College was also recognized with a Tier 5 rating in two other categories — ‘Arts and Humanities’ for its Graphic Design and Multimedia programmes and ‘Engineering, Manufacturing and Construction’ for its Architecture and Interior Architecture programmes.

Developed by the Education Ministry, MyQuest evaluates private colleges in Malaysia on the quality of its students, programmes, graduates, resources and governance. Under MyQuest, colleges score one of six ratings or tiers, namely ‘Tier 6 Outstanding’, ‘Tier 5 Excellent’, ‘Tier 4 Very Good’, ‘Tier 3 Good’, ‘Tier 2 Satisfactory’ and ‘Tier 1 Poor’.

This was ALFA’s first entry into MyQuest so there were a few unknowns to experience and address. But the process confirmed that we’ve been on the right track and that our approach in terms of the design and delivery of our programmes is sound and valuable.

“Overall, it was a worthwhile experience to undergo, and we are naturally very pleased with the outcome,” praised Ms. Jenny Sim, Chief Executive of ALFA College. It’s nice to see how the College ranks against its competitors, but the benefit of MyQuest is in understanding our strengths and weaknesses.

For ALFA, it’s clear that we need to improve our outreach and resources for international students. So for a small college, there is still a lot of work to do, but for the moment, we can pause, take stock of ourselves, and of course, celebrate a huge win!

During the course, I was encouraged by the lecturers to participate in many different competitions. I was excited to win the Kancil Awards 2011 Gold Prize and was the Finalist in the Science Meets Arts Competition 2011. I was only a 1st Year student when I won both these awards. This has boosted my confidence as a budding designer.

The good lecturer-student relationship makes ALFA a special place to study. The lecturer’s dedication and availability has helped me tremendously to develop my skills and style.

The quality of teaching at ALFA College has been exceptional. I get a lot of inspiration from the lecturers. Whenever I face difficulties, they never fail to give me the right directions and advise.

During my first year at ALFA, I became the 1st Prize winner of the Science Meets Art Competition 2011. I am really thankful to the lecturers for giving me a good foundation and guidance in this course.

I appreciate the uniqueness of the learning atmosphere at ALFA because it offers smaller class size and personalized attention. The lecturer’s expertise and caring approach to teaching offered the important mix of guidance and freedom that allows a student to develop his or her personal style.

During the course, I have learnt up-to-date computer skills, public speaking skills, and most importantly how to conceptualize.

To become a better designer, I joined many competitions such as Photo Hunt Contest, Sustainable Competition and Kancil Awards. My proudest moment while at ALFA was winning the Merit Award in the Kancil Awards 2010. I believe I can become a good designer when I put my heart and soul into my work.
