En­hanced learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

“THE ex­pe­ri­ence I got from Coven­try Univer­sity, in UK over the past four months has been re­ally mean­ing­ful. I’ve had an un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence in the aca­demic as­pect as well as cul­tural ex­po­sure,” said Mo­hamad Azmirul Hazny Abd Hafiz, 21 who is cur­rently pur­su­ing a Bach­e­lor in In­vest­ment Man­age­ment at the Fac­ulty of Busi­ness Man­age­ment and Pro­fes­sional Stud­ies ( FBMP), Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity ( MSU).

This MSU Pres­i­dent Schol­ar­ship holder has com­pleted four months at­tach­ment at Coven­try Univer­sity through the MSU Global Mo­bil­ity Pro­gramme ( GMP). This pro­gramme aims to pro­vide global ex­po­sure to MSU stu­dents, es­pe­cially in de­vel­op­ing aware­ness and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of cul­tural, political and eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ments as well as new ap­proaches in ex­pend­ing busi­ness.

“In Coven­try Univer­sity, I am con­sid­ered an Eras­mus and Ex­change Stu­dent. This pro­gramme al­lows you to ei­ther at­tend the univer­sity for a se­mes­ter or to com­plete your fi­nal year there.

“In the 2015/ 2016 ses­sion, there are more than 200 in­ter­na­tional stu­dents who joined the pro­gramme. I strongly rec­om­mend MSUri­ans to take the op­por­tu­nity and ex­pe­ri­ence the global learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment through GMP. It will pro­vide a blend of valu­able in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure.”

“I was grate­ful to have been fore­warned about what to ex­pect. In fact, be­fore I left for UK, I at­tended a com­pre­hen­sive briefing at MSU,” says Azmirul, who is also MSU Stu­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil ( SRC), ses­sion 2015/ 2016 pres­i­dent.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to ex­pand­ing my knowl­edge and hope­fully im­prove my per­sonal soft skills along the way.

“The en­rich­ing learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ences of­fered at MSU gives me con­fi­dence in de­vel­op­ing my ca­reer to the high­est level.”

The re­cip­i­ent of the Pres­i­dent’s List and Dean’s List Award also ex­pressed his thanks to the staff at MSU who played a part in his suc­cess, es­pe­cially its pres­i­dent, Prof Tan Sri Datuk Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Ya­jid, who con­trib­uted a lot to help re­alise his dream.

“His ex­em­plary ef­fort in build­ing up a holis­tic and ed­u­cated so­ci­ety for the younger gen­er­a­tion had al­ways caught my in­ter­est,” added Azmirul.

As Malaysia’s best teach­ing and learn­ing univer­sity, MSU gives pri­or­ity to qual­ity education and the im­por­tance of cre­ative teach­ing method­olo­gies to­wards pro­duc­ing qual­ity grad­u­ates.

Be­sides in­cor­po­rat­ing in­ter­na­tional ex­po­sure in the stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­ten­sive in­dus­trial train­ing com­po­nents and per­sonal en­rich­ment com­pe­tency el­e­ments are also blended into the pro­gramme of study to en­sure grad­u­ates’ em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

Un­til now, MSU grad­u­ates re­main the pop­u­lar choice among em­ploy­ers.

A grad­u­ate tracer study con­ducted by the Higher Education Min­istry shows a 98% em­ploy­a­bil­ity rate of its grad­u­ates en­ter­ing the work­ing en­vi­ron­ment. This rate is the high­est among all higher learn­ing in­sti­tu­tions in Malaysia.
