This university can be said as one of the most happening universities in Malaysia. Every week, we get to participate in all sorts of events such as Cultural Nights, Independence Days and as a local Malaysian Chinese, I can say that I have been exposed to the world's culture more than before. The formal dress code here makes me look as though I am a working professional, which is absolutely COOL! Assignments here are tough, but it encourages you to do more research and apparently I have better skills than my other friends who are studying in other universities. Every subject we have presentation, and this really helps me to build my self confidence and communication skills. Although I have graduated, I seriously missed the times as a student in this lively university! show less

This university is good in term of ease of issuing offer letters. But, it is becoming difficult to obtain the visa in Malaysia. The new rules and regulations for obtaining visa has become a serious issue that should be revised by Malaysian Authorities. The university location is good and is nearby Kuala Lumput, the capital of Malaysia. Have a great study and stay in Malaysia. show less
