Ex­pert at time man­age­ment

par­ents felt the en­vi­ron­ment is very safe and are very happy that there is se­cure ac­com­mo­da­tion on cam­pus,” she ex­plains.

She chose Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance as her de­gree as it is re­lated to the field of risk man­age­ment, the area she hopes to work in later on.

Jhurry only has pos­i­tive things to say about her lec­tur­ers who have been “ex­tremely friendly and help­ful”.

In fact, she cred­its their ef­forts and con­tin­ued en­cour­age­ment as be­ing key to her aca­demic suc­cess (she scored a near-per­fect CGPA of 3.9 in her first year).

When asked about how she jug­gles her stud­ies and her ex­tremely packed ex­tracur­ric­u­lar cal­en­dar, she smiles and says it is sim­ply a mat­ter of pri­ori­tis­ing.

“I com­pile a timetable and make sure all the im­por­tant as­sign­ments are done be­fore I do any­thing else. Be­sides, I can’t en­joy my­self in other ac­tiv­i­ties know­ing that there is home­work or study­ing to be done,” she says.

Jhurry plans to do her best to se­cure a first class honours de­gree and to get some work ex­pe­ri­ence.

She plans to work for a cou­ple of years be­fore pur­su­ing a Mas­ter’s de­gree in Ac­tu­ar­ial Sci­ence.

As ad­vice to fu­ture univer­sity stu­dents, she be­lieves that by fo­cus­ing one’s mind, any ob­sta­cle can be over­come and any goal can be achieved. Look­ing at her glow­ing cur­ric­u­lar vi­tae, she is in­deed proof that any­thing is in­deed pos­si­ble.

Grad­u­ates from Ni­lai U’s Ac­count­ing and Fi­nance de­gree will be en­ti­tled to seven to eight paper ex­emp­tions from pro­fes­sional ac­count­ing or­gan­i­sa­tions such as CIMA, ACCA and ICAEW ex­am­i­na­tions.

Jhurry: ‘The cost of liv­ing here in Malaysia is much more af­ford­able com­pared to the UK.’
