If you want to become a great chef, you have to work with a great chef. Heartiest congratulations to you, Oman Royal Air Force chefs for your completion of mobility programme in KDU.  One for the memory, the Oman Royal Air Force chefs with Chef Hamirudin Nazir before the start of their culinary experience in KDU.

 
Shorter periods of studying or working abroad during degree programmes should be offered by universities to close the gap in mobility participation rates between affluent students and their less well-off peers in Malaysia.

One element holding back outward student mobility across Malaysia is the sharp variation in participation rates between different socio-economic groups.

20 students from Royal Oman Chefs signed up in School of Hospitality Tourism and Culinary Arts for 2 months programmes. The program’s structure is based on an interdisciplinary study of culinary, with an emphasis on an active and experiential learning experience for students.

“We know that students who are traditionally less likely to engage with mobility get even more out of it than their more advantaged counterparts and that even two weeks of student mobility can have a life-changing impact on employability skills" mentioned Oman Royal Air Force Group Captain Sultan Saif Hamood Al-Battashi.

Each of the students were given a chance to show their talents by cooking up their local delicacies for the buffet lunch. The profit of the buffet pledge to Tabung Harapan Malaysia.

One of the most memorable graduations Prof Hiew witnessed was one in which each class members shared a moment that had meant a lot to them on their way to graduation. Some of the things they shared were surprisingly small things that meant a lot. "It was extremely personal and touching," added Prof Hiew.
