BAC also offers the UK Transfer Degree Programme (Law) where students are given the option to complete a 1+2 (1 year at BAC and 2 years at a partner University) or 2+1 (2 years at BAC and 1 year at a partner University depending on their preference.

Student Testimonials

Aneel David Kannabhiran

Recepient of the 2011 Attorney General’s Award for the Best Student in Malaysia for Evidence

I attribute the success of my entire legal education from A-Levels right up to the CLP to BAC’s excellent lecturers as well as BAC’s approach towards exam preparation. They not only helped to build my confidence in the subjects but also inspired me to realise my full potential, all of which enabled me to pass every exam on my first attempt. I am also thankful for the various modes of financial assistance available at BAC that made it possible for me to complete my legal education.


Chan Zhou Chen

The only student to score 4As in the history of the CLP examination

I studied law for one simple reason - self-empowerment. Upon completion of my degree, I enrolled in the part-time CLP course at Brickfields Asia College. I realised that this examination required an enormous amount of preparation and with the added difficulty of working full-time, the criteria of choosing a college that could fully assist me in realising my potential became essential. That’s why I chose BAC and I have no regrets! The materials provided were succinct and clear and was essential to my preparation. Ahead of me are tougher challenges, but with the solid grounding I have now, I will embrace those challenges steadily and confidently!


Chua Shuang Yih

Recepient of the 2011 Attorney General’s Award for the Best Student in Malaysia for Evidence

The understanding of law is far more important than just memorizing facts. This was one of many vital approaches that BAC emphasised, which made a difference in my preparations. The definitive resources I received from BAC in the form of extensive materials as well as being taught by an experienced team of lecturers was the recipe for my success!


Geraldine Shamini Kenel

UK Transfer Degree Programme (Law)

I had a great time in Aberystwyth University and my time in BAC definitely helped me achieve success there. While at BAC, I received constant support and guidance from my lecturers who were very kind and patient. The lecturers in BAC are very dedicated to the task at hand and will do their very best to ensure that their students understand the subject matter. They also strive to teach students the best ways to tackle questions and problems. BAC does a brilliant job preparing their students to excel and meet the standards demanded from UK Universities. It’s no surprise though because at BAC, you are being trained by the best lecturers in town!


Jasmine Sia Wan Jin

UK Transfer Degree Programme (Law)

I owe my achievements to BAC as it definitely helped me perform exceptionally which in turn helped me win the Cardiff Merit Scholarship! My lecturers were highly approachable and their dedication to each and every student is very apparent. They constantly made us believe that we could succeed and it undoubtedly boosted my confidence! The Nations No. 1 Law School label is not a justifiable representation as my experiences here is so much more than that. I enrolled in BAC because of its affordable tuition fees but I believe I gained so much more than what I paid for! I am also impressed with the efficiency and kindness of the administrative office for always going beyond their duties to solve students problems. Thanks to BAC and Cardiff University, my goal in life of being a lawyer is now within my reach.


Joyce Lau Li Ven

BAC is the fuel and spirit that inspire me to achieve greater heights in the legal field. The two years I spent at BAC was a rewarding experience that helped me obtained outstanding results in the UK Transfer Programme which led to a scholarship by the University of Liverpool where I obtained a 1st Class Honours LLB Degree. BAC’s lecturers played a big role in my achievements as their guidance and advice helped shape my education, character and mindset. They are constantly at the forefront of the latest developments in law and this bolsters their already vast knowledge on the subject matter. This provided me an extraordinary platform for intellectual growth. With its unrivalled reputation, I strongly recommend BAC as a place to study!


Kimberly Ong

Cambridge International Examinations

Not being a local KL-ite was initially a challenge to me, but it wasn’t long before BAC became my home away from home. College life moved so quickly mainly due to the warm ambience and wonderful environment that BAC provided. I fostered many great friendships here. It was also a very conducive place where I could focus on my studies while balancing a good social life. I would definitely credit my success to all my highly knowledgeable and approachable lecturers who were ever ready to assist all the students. Being too eager to learn, I was not only taught but also guided and inspired by them. It was overall a great experience studying at BAC!


Leon Yit Chia

Recepient of the 2011 Judge’s Award for the Best Student in Malaysia for General Paper

Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven’t planted. It all begins with the seed. As it turns out, my choice of following the crowd was right. Thanks to BAC, the high- quality seed was planted in my CLP preparation. With guidance and motivation from all the lecturers, who were not only resourceful but were also constantly supportive and accessible, especially Mr. Thank you BAC!


Lim Eu Jin

Recepient of the 2011 Bar Council Award for the Best Student in Malaysia for Profes- sional Practice

From the A-Levels until the completion of my CLP, being a BAC student, I grew as an individual from the exposure and support I received. I am at the starting point of my legal career today for two main reasons. Firstly, the lecturers were excellent in making the subjects interesting and fun to learn and secondly, the textbooks and materials given by BAC are so carefully crafted ensuring all areas of law are well covered. This in my opinion shows BAC’s attention to detail and their dedication to students.


Stephanie Boo Chuling

Recepient of the 2011 Attorney General’s Award for the Best Student in Malaysia for Evidence

After completing my LLB, I knew that BAC was where I wanted to do my CLP and it was exactly as I envisioned it to be. It’s recent makeover, highly experienced faculty, outstanding materials as well as the excellent atmosphere provided a conducive study environment. Not only was there a well-stocked library but also facilities like the gym, dance studio and the Sky Garden Sports Cafe. As Mark Twain said ‘Clothes makes the man’ , for me, so does the place where you choose to study! I’m glad I chose BAC, I made the right choice and so should you!


Tan Meng Yee

UK Transfer Degree Programme (Law)

I joined BAC from the A-Levels and I believe it gave me the foundation on which I built my subsequent success in my undergraduate studies. BAC’s lectures were great and helpful. They provided useful strategies in exam preparations and tackling exam questions. The study materials and notes were very useful as well. I owe BAC a huge debt as even after I completed my UK Transfer Degree Programme here and went to the UK, they paid close attention to my progress there and also sent me useful notes and materials. Thanks BAC!


Tay Zi Li

Recipient of the 2011 Tun Hamid Omar Foundation Award for the Best Overall CLP Student in Malaysia

Choosing to pursue the CLP at BAC was one of the smartest choices I made in my life.

Besides my own efforts, BAC definitely played a major role in my success.


Yvonne Ng Yi Wen

UK Transfer Degree Programme (Law)

I have always had a great passion for the law and enrolled into Brickfields Asia College (BAC) to pursue the UK Transfer Degree Programme because I wanted to experience life in the UK. During the first two years of study at BAC, I was provided with comprehensive materials including textbooks that were published by the college itself. The lecturers in BAC were very good and explained the law very well and this helped develop my critical thinking skills. I was not as proficient in English as other students; nevertheless, the lecturers were very helpful and patient. I enjoyed my time there and although I worked hard, I also had time for friends and entertainment. Now, I am more confident in analysing complex issues and enjoy engaging in debates and discussions. I really enjoy the challenging intellectual experience that the law provides.

I was able to adapt to the Malaysian lifestyle pretty quickly and have no regrets coming here!


Arpita Kaur Bajaj from Singapore

I heard a lot of good reviews over the other side of the causeway and the repeated advertisements in newspapers pretty much raised my curiosity even more about BAC.

The administrative staff are very helpful and courteous, the lecturers knowledgeable and approachable and my classmates are friendly too! I simply love it here and like Malaysia, I think there is no better place!

My passion for law and personal ambition to help create awareness on women’s rights has brought me to BAC. What I found attractive about BAC is that it’s a specialist law college that has great ties with renowned international university partners. I am enjoying my time here as I am able to participate in many different legal events which expose me to many legal issues and real world experiences while I study. Also the fact that Malaysia is a multi-cultural country has made it very easy for me to adapt to life. I believe BAC is the best choice for me.
