Doing the A-Levels in KDU University College is a really interesting experience in the best way possible. I was blessed to have top-notch lecturers and awesome course mates, without whom I probably wouldn’t have been able to get through (not in one coherent piece anyway). 

The lecturers are really amazing people, and ever ready to impart their knowledge, very often, going the extra mile for theirs students. 

It is often said that, you never know how much a place changes you until you leave it and I believe that is true for me.

I have the lecturers to thank for my great results. The most commendable advantage of KDU UC is the attention of the lecturers for every student in our learning process. 

The student-to-lecturer’s ratio is about 15 to 20 students in a class, as compared to other colleges my friends attend, which can easily hit up to 30 over students per class. 

I believe this individualised attention is what helped me attain such good results for me to be accepted into Cambridge.

I still remember when I came to Malaysia, I could not understand a word of English. My lecturers taught me a lot and gave me confidence, and they have always been very patient with me.
 
They also helped me in my life because my English was very poor so I couldn’t do many things by myself.

With their help, my English improved very quickly. I certainly made the right choice in choosing to study in KDU.

My days in KDU has been remarkable. The support I received from the lecturer, staff and friends in KDU helped me cope with my studies in Malaysia. Coming from a small nation, it was always my dream to study abroad which I fulfilled by making one of the biggest decisions in my life – pursuing my studies in KDU. It is a decision that I will never regret.

Taking up this course has propelled me further into the growing business world. I received holistic education in and outside of the classroom, even receiving an insight of how businesses work here in Malaysia.

Throughout my 3 year tenure with KDU School of Business, I have faced many obstacles which have groomed me into who I am today. The journey was indeed a learning process that was filled with endless shower of joy and glee amidst the occasional learning setbacks which I am grateful for.

My learning curve was further accelerated by faculty members who are passionate in dedicating their time to their profession. They were the ones who taught me that there is no wrong in experiencing failures in life as long as I make an effort to improve and be better than who I was yesterday.

KDU University College has lived up to my expectation in providing real world education to meet real world needs. Throughout my journey at the School of Business, I have benefited a lot from gaining the right depth of knowledge, understands the relationship between business and law in the management of most businesses today. After securing my internship in my very first interview, I was then offered a full-time position at the Real Estate And Housing Developers’ Association Malaysia (REHDA Institute), as an Events, Business Development and Marketing Executive. All these would not have been possible if it weren’t for the guidance and amazing dedication shown by the various people I have met and learnt from throughout my time in KDU School of Business. If you aspire to succeed in your career, KDU University College is the place to be.

KDU University College is one of the most diversified universities in Malaysia and a home for students from all corners of the world. At KDU School of Business, being an international student is no longer a challenge as the staffs have always been genuinely supportive. The faculty members deliver the knowledge with passion and constantly link to the real world contexts. Personally, I think that is what make KDU a great place to study. I would not be the Bloomberg campus ambassador during my sophomore year had I not experienced student life at KDU. My Bachelor in Business (Hons) has armed me with business knowledge academically and practically. That has assisted me to better compete in multinational corporations like Dell Technologies, where I work as a Senior Analyst currently. I am thankful for absolutely everything and every moment I spent at KDU and filled with gratitude to call myself a KDU graduate.

Master of Design (Innovation)
Graduated, September 2017
I enrolled into the Masters in Design (Innovation) programme at January 2016 and graduated at September 2017. This programme covers many subjects that are related to new media communication which is crucial in most modern industries. Being a mix mode post graduate programme, it has subjects that are more inclined towards practical application on top of academic research. This enables the students to apply and put their research to the test when it comes to solving practical problems. As an academic staff, the programme also provides a lot of reference points in terms of handling post graduate classes and student experiences. It also allows me to acquire a deeper understanding of academic research and its effects towards the industry and society in general. These experiences enable me to contribute better to my work as lecturer as it allows me to understand how to guide students in coping with their research work and also practical projects.

Four years of educational journey in KDU University College was a great mix of quality education, culture and fun college life. Looking back and connecting the dots, the experience was invaluable.

Graduated 2011, as Valedictorian
The pinnacle of my KDU University College experience was being bestowed the great honour as Valedictorian of the Graduating Class of 2011, and today, it gives me great pleasure to share my career story, which proudly, began with KDU.

The key moment which set my career in motion was when my classmates and I were encouraged by our lecturers to participate in the L’Orèal Brandstorm competition during our final semester back in 2011. I was (and still am) extremely grateful for their encouragement and support during the competition, because that experience ultimately led to my employment with the leading cosmetics company, L’Orèal Malaysia.

Since then, I have tried my hand at Public Relations, having majored in Public Relations & Communications during my term at KDU. But ultimately, I decided to focus on my professional development in the field of Marketing and this has led me to my current position at DiGi Telecommunications, specializing in Marketing Communications.

Khadija Sheikh Fuad
Diploma in Entrepreneurial Design
What I liked most about my time in KDU was the support system I received from both my peers and lecturers. When I started my diploma the course was fairly new and there weren't many of us so we had a lot of one on one time with the lecturers. I was fortunate because that gave me the ability to identify my strengths and weaknesses and work through them with their help. My course mates and I were highly competitive but we never experienced any ill feelings towards each other. In fact, we motivated one another to do our very best to which I'm grateful. Currently what are they doing/ working as? I am currently helping in my family business by utilising my skills that I have learned to design and market their life centre that is based in Janda Baik.

I enjoyed a remarkable learning experience at KDU University College; from the technology equipped classes to the support, encouragement and mentorship shown by the Computing department, the journey was invaluable.

During my course of study, I relished in participating in technology driven events organised by KDU as well as debating opinions with the lecturers. These positive experiences persuaded me to further pursue my education and to continually push myself beyond boundaries. 

I will continue to cherish KDU as part of my life’s journey and am proud to celebrate their success amongst graduates.

Studying Computing at KDU University College was a memorable experience for me as it enriched my passion for computers and technology. 

The lessons were always enjoyable and pragmatic; that allowed me to express myself and do the best I could in classes and competitions. One thing I miss at the campus is the vast array of dynamic students and the stimulating academic environment they created.

In short, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and I attribute my success today to everyone at KDU.

Bachelor of Game Development (Hons) with First Class Honours
3D Game Artist at Streamline Studios
Graduated at 2014
What I love about the course is the fact that the content is pretty intensive and the lecturers are constantly on our backs to not just complete our work but to push it further. 

As I entered my first job, it was quite overwhelming as there were tons of things to pick-up on but thankfully the course really focused on preparing me to be ready to adapt to changes in game technology that affects me as an artist. It was a learning marathon with many late nights spent building up my skills but I’d still recommend it to anyone wanting to jump into game development. 

Having said that, I’d also like to warn any of those who are considering on enrolling that it sure isn’t easy but it will get you the results if you are willing to put yourself into it.

Studying Game Development in KDU was a unique and memorable experience. It really felt like everything was done to simulate a game development environment but within ‘safe’ educational constraints. 

Projects are run just like how they are in the industry, with lecturers acting as producers and guiding students by helping them setting a scope and making sure deadlines are respected. I was also impressed by the course structure which allows students to experience the 3 main fields of Game Development before deciding in which one to specialize in. Even after choosing a field, flexible electives encourages students to diversify. I found this really important as it makes it easier to collaborate when all members of a team have a good understanding of each other’s roles. 

One of the things I also miss the most is the Area51 Game Studio which is the course’s dedicated computer lab. It is a nice and cosy place to work and relax and it felt like a second home for me, especially during late night crunch hours.

I enrolled myself in KDU University College and was just blown away by the passion the lecturers had in teaching the students in such a different and powerful way. The academic excellence of my classes and the dedicated academic staff, themselves were the best part of my experience. 

Being able to learn from influential people in the field was the reason I chose engineering in the first place and I was not disappointed. The department has excellent laboratory infrastructural facilities where students are trained with the best of teaching expertise, to enhance their practical skills, exposing themselves to recent trends in the industry.

Being an engineering student at KDU University College has been one of the highlights of my life so far. It is an enlightening experience. The lecturers were really supportive and helpful.

KDU offers many opportunities for learning. For example, in my first year I was able to represent KDU in a competition held by the Institute of Engineering Malaysia to design a lake-cleaning machine. Students at KDU always have the opportunity to attend workshops which are both engaging and interactive. Overall,

I am glad to join KDU because it has played a major role in shaping a part of who I am today as well as preparing me for my future career.
