St. Joseph’s International School, Kuching (SJIS) today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with German Educare (Eduroam Sdn Bhd) which will see the international school offer its A-level students an education pathway program in German.
The MoU was signed by SJIS Managing Director, Mr. Christopher Chua and Eduroam Founder, Ms. Gyvinne Koh.
The German Educational Pathway Program
The German Education Pathway is a program that prepares A-level students for the possibility of pursuing higher education at universities in Germany.
According to the information I have obtained, the Pathway program requires students to take three Cambridge A-Level subjects and take German lessons at the same time.
Students must have a B1 level proficiency in German language at the end of the 15 or 18 month A level program before continuing their studies for a further nine months in the German language program with German Educare in Kuala Lumpur.
This nine-month program will prepare students for their German language proficiency at C2 level, which will make them eligible to apply for entrance into German universities.
SJIS said the program will begin with their admission to A Level 2022 with German Educare working exclusively with SJIS to deliver their German language program in Sarawak.
German Educare is a leading approved German language provider here in Malaysia, with its proven methodology also being adopted at several local universities in the West.
Why does the SJIS push German education?
SJIS sees Germany as a viable educational destination due to its excellent, low-cost higher education system.
Currently, tuition fees are waived for all local and international students at German public universities, making it a good option for SJIS students to pursue their higher education.
That said, the MoU between SJIS and German Educare will open SJIS A-level students to this opportunity through the German Education Pathway program.
The pathway will broaden students’ education and career options, as they can learn a foreign language, enroll in renowned German universities, and be allowed to work to gain experience in Germany.
