Methodist College Kuala Lumpur
Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) was founded as a private educational institution in January 1983 by the Methodist Council of Education.
The Founding Principal was Mrs. F R Bhupalan. Secondary classes (Forms 1 to 5), Sixth Form and A-level classes were conducted and the enrollment increased dramatically with the success achieved by the College.
Due to the growing student population, a new campus was established in Sentul in 1994 and Forms 1 to 5 classes were moved in stages to what is now called the Wesley Methodist School, Sentul. This move was completed in 1999 and Methodist College Kuala Lumpur, Brickfields is now focused on providing pre-university studies, diploma and certificate level courses as a private higher education institute (Institut Pengajian Tinggi Swasta – IPTS).
In 2000 the Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) programme of the Curriculum Council, Western Australia was added to the GCE A-level, U.K. pre-university studies programme. Both the GCE A-level and AUSMAT programmes have successfully prepared numerous students for admission to overseas universities in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, U.S.A., Singapore, India and many other countries as well as to local private university colleges.
The Diploma in Early Childhood Education (DECE) programme to train professional early childhood educators started in 2005 and it has been producing well-trained and well-rounded teachers. MCKL also has strong ties with foreign universities who accepts our DECE graduates as final year students in their degree in education programmes.
The Cambridge International Diploma in Teaching and Learning (CIDTL) was introduced in 2010 to help teachers develop their professional thinking and practice and enhance the quality of their teaching and learning.
CLUBS AND SOCIETIES
Except for the Student General Meetings where attendance is compulsory, other clubs are voluntary. Clubs are formed and run by students who share the same interests in sports, games or other interests and would like to express and develop themselves through the club activities.
Students at Methodist College Kuala Lumpur are encouraged to join and take an active role in societies to enrich their holistic education at the College. Each society holds annual events and activities enough to keep a student going and enjoying his time with the College.
