Kuala Lumpur, 13 December 2021– Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) in collaboration with German Educare has successfully sent twenty-nine (29) students from the Cambridge A Level German Pathway programme to Germany. The robust partnership between MCKL and German Educare continues to provide a direct pathway for students to pursue their undergraduate studies at top public universities and technical institutes in Germany.

Over the years, Germany has become a magnet for international students from all over the world to pursue their tertiary education. One of the main reasons continue to be its access to low or no tuition fee for high-quality education and excellent teaching and research among the German public universities. Many other factors contribute to this decision such as, affordable living cost, countless courses, world-class education and experience, excellent learning environment, and high career and industry opportunities.

The pioneer batch of nine (9) students from MCKL first travelled to Germany in April 2021, during the pandemic to continue their preparatory programme in Germany and was successfully admitted to well-known German Universities to pursue their undergraduate study. Saranya Anandraj who received an offer to pursue her undergraduate studies in Science, studying Economics at Ludwig Maximilian University (LMU) of Munich said, “MCKL’s outstanding track record affirmed that I would be receiving the best pre-university education to join my dream university. When I first got the email from LMU that I had been accepted, it felt extremely surreal, and I was extremely grateful that I was able to achieve my goal of getting into LMU.”

Anson Lean who is currently studying Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.  at Rhein-Westfalen Technische Hochschule (RWTH) said “When I got the email that I was accepted, I was very happy. Both MCKL and German Educare was an excellent steppingstone to equip me with sufficient skills and knowledge.”

Recently in October 2021, despite the pandemic and the restrictions imposed, the partnership successfully sent another 20 alumni to Germany to fulfil their preparatory programme before their further studies begin.

According to the latest statistics, there are over 357,000 foreign students seeking a university degree in Germany whereas the number is steadily increasing. Thus, MCKL provides students with a direct pathway to further their studies in Germany. While students are studying the A Level programme in MCKL, they will also be attending German language lessons to fulfill the language requirement to study in Germany.
