AFTER receiving their results, many Baccalaureate graduates are struggling to find universities where they can obtain higher qualifications. Some may have chosen a university, but some may not. In this issue, Lift magazine introduces you to a brand-new university.

The Sineru Institute, located at 5B, 6B and 7B, near the Toul Kork roundabout, in Phnom Penh’s Beoung Kak district, was officially established just last month.

It is the first private institute that specialises solely in architecture, interior design, construction and information as a bachelor degree.

As well as these specialised skills, the Sineru Institute offers courses such as 3D max, Autocad 2D-3D, Photoshop, Illustrator and an interior design course.

The school’s aim is to impart skills the market needs: creativity, innovation, practice and theory.

School director Nom Sotheary, 29, says:  “We have observed that most universities in Cambodia provide only foreign concepts in their architecture or design majors, but here we provide both Khmer and foreign concepts so students will be able to formulate their own concepts. We call it creativity and innovation.

“We have selected most of the outstanding professors who have experience  working as architects abroad to train our students. Moreover, we have a real field construction for students to practise on during their studies.”

The school has enough facilities: computers, air-conditioners, Internet, etc. There are a laboratory and a conference room on campus, but there are only 10 classrooms.

Fees range from $600 to $800 for an academic year, depending on the major a student chooses, Nom Sotheary says.

Moreover, the Sineru Institute provides full and half scholarships for 160 students per major. So don’t miss the scholarship exam if you’re looking for those majors.
