Prospective Students
Taylor's World Class Scholarship
Introduction

Taylor's in collaboration with leading world-class multinationals, is once again awarding full scholarships to outstanding students with exceptional academic results and leadership qualities in the Taylor's World Class Scholarship (TWCS) 2011. This unique scholarship offers not only financial aid, but also the golden opportunity to intern or train with global brand names.

This marks the sixth consecutive year of the scholarship scheme which has, to date, disbursed over RM7.8 million in scholarships that has benefited 93 students. This scholarship is truly one-of-a-kind, as not only do the recipients benefit from academic and soft skills development, they are also given the opportunity to acquire hands-on experience with world-renowned multinationals.

Unlike conventional scholarships that only provide financial assistance, TWCS recipients are guaranteed practical training with some of the world's most successful companies. The internship is carried out during the semester break of their degree course, and/or as a management training stint upon graduation, providing scholars with global recognition and the added edge to succeed in their careers after graduation.
