How is the academic life at this university/college? Speaking as someone who undertook the Cambridge A-Level Programme, it was overall an enriching experience, though by no means perfect. Students are very much encouraged to seek answers outside of the classroom, all in the interest of a more comprehensive understanding of the topic at hand. The library is well stocked with reference books and its facilities are continuously updated to provide a conducive study environment for students. In terms of lecturers, there are the good and the bad, but what is important is that when concerns about their competency is brought to light, they are acted upon. What are the students like? I'll be honest, if you are unable to communicate in Mandarin effectively, be prepared for a few cases of being left out. This is, quite unfortunately, caused by circumstance alone as many Chinese educated students choose to enrol and so enter college with their cliques and mindsets already solid and well formed. However, there can be no doubt as to their common courtesy when it comes to visitors and fellow students. What do students do when not studying? Tell us about the social and sports life. INTI has quite a large number of societies that engage students in extracurricular activities. A few common examples include Drama, Christian Fellowship, Anime, Wave crew, and Basketball. All societies are student led, with support from academic and non academic staff, encouraging students to take up the reins and do more than just sit in the library all day. INTI also encourages talents on the stage, as evidenced by the huge popularity and turnout of INTI'S TALENT QUEST. Smoking however, also seems to be an unfortunate social activity in the stairwells, despite rules stating that it is not allowed. What is your overall opinion about this university/college? I think INTI was, and is, a good choice for students looking to complete their Pre-U studies. Top scorers for both the HSC ATAR and A-Level exams are consistent year to year and the college continues to open up more programmes and to look for ways to give its students a more international setting. Qualifications provided by the college are also highly recognised by hiring bodies around Malaysia. However, bear in mind that it is the student that makes most of the grades.
