Background of Institution

MCKL.jpegMethodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) was established in 1983 as a private college of higher education to provide value-based education in the best Methodist tradition and where excellence in all its forms is celebrated.

Student Testimonials

Caleb Tay Hong Teng

A-Level Class of 2014

 “My friends said that MCKL students have good character, and I had also heard that many of them have been to elite universities around the world because MCKL helped them to become well-rounded in skills and knowledge. I wasn’t disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the lecturers really went the extra mile to help us even when we messaged them outside of college hours. Once I’m done with my gap year to get some work experience and social skills, I intend to apply to the US and UK to study Electrical & Electronic Engineering.”

Ms Chin Hui Yin, A-Level Class of 2014

Pharmacy in University College London, UK on a JPA Scholarship

“MCKL exceeded my expectations. The campus was clean, conducive to studying, and it had a good reputation for academic performance. Both the students and lecturers were very helpful to me and my friends when we had trouble finding places or handling our homework. The staff of the University Placement Office also made a huge difference when I applied through UCAS; they gave me a lot of useful advice and I eventually got offers from all five universities that I applied to.”

Ms Olivia Francis, CAT Class of 2014

Joined MCKL for CAT

Olivia received an offer from MCKL to study the Certified Accounting Technician (CAT) programme on a full tuition scholarship with Financial Aid covering miscellaneous fees, and the Elena Cooke Education Fund (under the BBGS Alumni), had pledged to cover her book fees, travel expenses as well as a bit of a meal allowance. Olivia only had to pay for the exam fees.
By the end of the Certified Accounting Technician programme, Olivia became a proud recipient of the Amcorp Study Grant, which covers all expenses for her ACCA Skills and Professional papers as well as cover her travel and meal expenses.Olivia thanks God for opening the doors to her to study accounting, and is glad to have come to MCKL. As far as first impressions go, Olivia liked MCKL, which was also a deciding factor in her continuing her ACCA at MCKL.
“It’s a small college with a conducive environment. The lecturers are friendly and they spend time with us, not just in studies but also motivating us,” says Olivia. “I really appreciate the help ms Guna gave me when I studied CAT.”

Ms. Alice Shin Jeong Sook, South Korea

Business English & Certificate in English, Jul 2006 - Nov 2007

After attending 14 weeks of the course, now I know many words to use for business. The teachers are professional and very passionate people. Mrs. Tan pushes us to learn the proper English.  Their spirit to teach us is very inspiring. Now I can do presentation in English. My classmates are very nice and this makes the atmosphere very friendly. We all learn English together and laugh at each other’s mistakes.

Ms. Bita Bastani, Iran

A-Level, U.K., March 2006 to June 2007

The staff in the student services department are really helpful in getting my student visa. They also provide special information on how to become comfortable in Malaysia. All the facilities are good enough to help me to study better and enjoy my time in the college. I just want to let you know that I'm glad to be a student in Methodist College Kuala Lumpur.
