All the basic things you need to know about USM.

USM is the university in a garden and that’s one of the aspect I enjoyed the most throughout my life in the campus. Whenever you’re walking around the campus, usually there would be some trees that provide shade for you from the sunlight. However, one can always opt to take the bus provided to go from one destination to another around the campus. 

In term of the facilities around the hostel, all hostels have water dispenser, washing machine and iron room besides the basic facilities like a room with two occupants, study tables, cupboards, toilets and bathrooms. Next, all the lecture halls in the campus come with air conditioner and all the teaching aids needed like whiteboard, projector, computer and etc. For the facilities around the campus, this main campus have swimming pool, badminton court, tennis court, running track, jogging track, field for football, basketball court, auditorium, halls and etc.

Besides that, there’re lots of varieties of food around the campus area too. You can find Malay food, Chinese food, Indian food or even Western food in the campus. The price is quite reasonable too.

USM Short Review

University Sains Malaysia has a main campus that located in Penang and 2 school branches that located at Kubang Kerian, Kelantan (Health Campus) and Nibong Tebal (Engineering Campus). I have been studying at the Health Campus at Kelantan and now at the main campus, Penang. There's a variety of courses are offered, so it would be easy to find the course of interest to study. For academically, many of the lecturers here has experienced and passionate in teaching. I would say its a great experience studying here. I love the environment here as I have helpful and dedicated lecturers who will always help me when I am in need. For the facilities, the laboratory was established as it has many years of experience in research based work. If you are studying in Penang, you will have lots of things to explore as Penang is a food paradise with lots of historical and cultural places. If it's at Kubang Kerian, Kelantan, it is time to explore the wonderful beaches which lies at the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.

University in a garden

USM is a warmth university. That would be the word I would describe the environment, staff (academic and administration), and students of my university. This is a bonus on top of the excellent academic experience whereby lecturers are helpful, professional, and knowlegeable. Students progress at their own pace with the guidance of the academic staff. The university contains lush greens albeit being located in a town. Recreational facilities are sufficient and living conditions in hostels are comfortable. The campus is within walking distance from a wide variety of food and services. The biggest shopping mall in the state is a 10-minute bus ride away while Georgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage site is a 30-minute bus ride away.
