I am currently in the Bachelor of Communication (Hons) programme, and I have never encountered any difficulties as an international student here in KDU University College. KDU made it easy for me to adapt. With experienced lecturers and great facilities, not only does KDU offer quality education, but also real world experience as practical projects are part and parcel of our programme.

I have also been able to strike up many precious friendships and participate in so many activities organised by the school, which has made my university life so enjoyable. I am thankful that I chose KDU University College because I feel that it’s helping me to grow intellectually and culturally, and giving me the necessary skills needed to be successful in the working world.

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.

伯乐大学学院在教育和个性塑造方面给我了很多帮助。我刚入学时是一个内向的人,只有在必要时才发言。然而,看看现在我的性格,你肯定感到难以置信,这一切都多亏了我在这里交的朋友。伯乐大学学院的讲师跟我想象得很不一样 ——他们比我想象得更好。他们对工作非常投入,而且平易近人。我得到了十分细心和耐心的教导。

我在伯乐大学学院的时光非常美好,值得珍藏和回忆。不管你取得什么成绩,不要认为到达了终点,成功之路多种多样。我们每个人都是独特的,有着不同的能力,有自己的成功标准。正如拉尔夫•沃尔多•爱默生所说:“不要被路的方向牵引着,要去没有路的地方,留下一条路。”

可以毫无疑问地说,我在伯乐大学学院遇到的人,使我在那儿的学习变得非常有意义。学校的讲师和同学对我的影响远远大于任何教科书。我遇到的一位讲师星期天开车到伯乐大学学院帮助我和我的朋友学习历史。另一位讲师不仅教文学,还帮助我培养对写作的真正热爱。我遇到一名从伯乐大学学院毕业的学生,她在暑假期间多次不怕麻烦到伯乐大学学院帮助我们中的一些人复习。还有一位很酷的讲师请她的经济学课程的学生去她家里拿人民币。而这样的例子不胜枚举。

最后,你的成绩将塑造你的职业生涯。但是,遇见一些这样的人将会塑造你的个性,激励你更加坚定,更加热爱你的工作,对朋友更富同情心——这就是为什么伯乐大学学院对我来说仍是一个特别的地方。

迄今为止,在伯乐学院的新南威尔士大学的基础课程也许是我最享受的一段教育经历。由于一年的时间很短,这个课程相当具有挑战性,但是它让我取得了以前从未达到的分数。进入该课程后,我在伯乐大学学院得到了无微不至的关怀,包括来自讲师的关心。尽管我经常提出一些无关主题的问题,他们也尽可能地回答我,并事无巨细地解决我的问题。

我在这里交的朋友毫无疑问是这段经历最好的部分。我从来没有遇到这样温和、善解人意、考虑周到的人。他们总是优先考虑别人的需要和想法,因此,我非常感谢这段课程经历。

Top scorer in Science Stream Semester 1 Examination
My one and a half year journey of doing the UNSW Foundation Studies programme has been remarkable as this programme has prepared me to be in good shape before entering my degree course in UNSW. Certainly, this programme is completely different from my previous high school experience as things were much harder to cope with. However, there are definitely parts that I enjoyed the most in this programme, which were actually the lecturers and the programme management.
 
Instead of merely requiring students to memorise concepts and details like how it was done back in high school, this programme mostly tested us on how we, as students, applied our knowledge in conducting experiments and completing our challenging coursework. I believe that the knowledge that I have gained in this programme is crucial in order for me to excel when I pursue my degree programme in UNSW. Last but not least, I would like to highlight how this programme has helped me to be more independent and brought out the best in me.

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.

My education experience here at KDU University College is filled with unique perspectives, opportunities and events. Student life here is simply amazing. Education I received here taught me more than knowledge extracted from books. I’ve also picked up soft skills that is essential in grooming me for this evolving industry.

Plus, as an international student, studying in Malaysia has been great; there’s always something new to explore in terms of the culture and heritage, and everyone is always eager to help and make you feel at home.

Here in KDU, we’re like a big family. Lecturers and staff at KDU work closely with the students, which allows everyone to form friendship bonds.

The education provided in KDU is of unwavering quality and this is acknowledged by not only the alumni, but industry players as well. For these reasons, I will always be proud of being a KDU student.

Graduated October 2014
I earned my Business Management and Finance degree from Keele University at KDU University College. I chose Keele University’s Business Management programme as Keele University is one of the reputable Universities in the UK that offers an external programme for business.Its course structure helps to stimulate skills for my future career.

The University’s Dual Honours Degree provides a wide knowledge in two dierent fields of study which is an increased asset for my future career and employment in an increasingly complex business environment. The programme was not only engaging, but also required students to think critically and analytically. It embeds not only theoretical knowledge
but also practical ones which can benefit students who seek to excel in the field of business.

While studying at KDU, I grew as an individual learning to interact with students from various cultural backgrounds. The lecturers were not only professional in teaching but they were also very friendly, caring and helpful. I enjoyed my three years of study in KDU as it gave me an amazing experience.

Studying in KDU University College has been a very pleasant experience and I could not ask for more. KDU has a very friendly environment and the lecturers are
more than willing to help and guide me throughout my course of studies.

The courses though challenging have moulded and helped prepare me to excel in all aspects of my life. Not only did my course of studies help me get an idea of the outside world that I was not exposed to, but it also helped me get a better understanding of how things work in life.

I am also able to apply the technical and soft skills that I have learnt while studying in KDU to my work as a tax agent in Deloitte. I am able to adapt well to my new working environment by keeping an open mind and applying the knowledge that I have gained in KDU. I have also learnt to keep my confidence level up and not be let down easily when faced with difficulties.

Last but not least, KDU has taught me to always steer my intention towards striving for success.

When I enrolled in KDU back in 2001, admittedly it was a decision based on the location of the College. At that time, the college was a stone’s throw away from where I lived and it was therefore an easy choice to pick the closest college to me. However, upon starting the classes in the college, I knew I had picked the right place. 

I enjoyed the fact that the lecturers knew us by our names and took the time to teach us. Many law schools at that time were churning out graduates, who were told to memorise and regurgitate facts. But KDU taught us individualism. Each and every one of us had a dierent approach to law and how we apply the legal knowledge we have learnt to our assignments. This foundation at KDU was what pushed me to pursue criminal litigation upon completing my pupillage. I enjoyed the challenge practising criminal litigation and was not swayed to follow the “flow” of my peers who were chasing their own legal dream. It was the same sense of adventure and challenge imbued by my time in KDU that saw me leaving criminal litigation for a career in Arbitration.

I am now heading the Legal Services Division at the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre of Arbitration. I have been lucky that the trusty “neighbourhood” college that I picked back in 2001 has given me everything that I ever wanted in my legal education. I have also made friends with both course mates and lecturer, many of whom remain my close friends today.

Attorney, Attorney General’s Office, Maldives
Graduated June 2013
Inspiration is right around the corner at KDU, where learning is not limited to the classroom. I drew strength and conviction from my lecturers, who shared their wealth of academic knowledge as well as their invaluable professional experiences. This helped me to mentally prepare for the highly demanding and challenging life of being a lawyer.

At KDU, learning is not just about studying. It is also about building up on your skills and talents. I had the opportunity to participate in various debate and moot competitions during which I was trained to construct sound legal arguments and to prepare strong bundles of paperwork. It trained me to think on my feet, to work fast and always be prepared. As a result of this, today, as a State Attorney at the Attorney General’s Office of the Maldives, I still use many of the skills and lessons I learnt during the OBU Program.

I made invaluable connections at KDU and some of my fellow classmates now work at top tier law firms around the world. I continue to work with them today just as we did during our time as students, through deadline rushes and all-nighters to submit assignments. I am proud of being part of the multi-talented and diverse KDU alumni.

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.

MY INSPIRATION
Numbers have always intrigued me in many ways as I enjoy learning and knowing the business world. In the effort of obtaining further understanding of the business and finance world, I came to realise the importance of accountancy study as it is the backbone of the corporate world, and that pursuing a professional accountancy course would be a great milestone in my life. Hence, I chose CAT and ACCA.

THE RIGHT PLACE TO BE
KDU College is my first choice in pursuing the CAT and ACCA courses. Wise tutelage from the lecturers definitely made my learning experience enjoyable. And with the lecturers’ vast experience, it gave me a better insight into the world of accountancy. Coupled with friendly and supportive staff as well as positive learning ambience, KDU College is definitely the perfect place to garner the knowledge I need.

我的鼓舞
从事会计职业一直是我从小以来的梦想。我在周围都是会计师的环境中长大,这使我对会计师进一步产生了兴趣。看到我的表兄弟和朋友取得了会计资格,有着丰厚的收入,过上了美好的生活,更加鼓舞了我,使我意识到学习会计是我可以给自己的最好礼物。

睿智的决定
我热衷于学习会计,但选择正确的会计资格证是一项挑战,因为我周围的会计师都是来自不同机构的。但是,我决定不会考取任何普通的会计资格证,而是全球公认的专业会计资格证。特许公认会计师具备了这些特点,因为它是世界领先的专业会计机构之一,有100多年的历史。学习特许公认会计师课程是一个明智的决定,因为它让我做好了准备,并在各方面给了我鼓舞,例如金融、审计、税务、公司治理、道德等等。  

正确的地方
选择正确的会计资格证只是其中的一部分,第二个重要的部分是决定在哪里获得特许公认会计师资格。我曾有过几个选择,但我选择了伯乐大学学院。这是因为在伯乐大学学院每个学科小班授课,学生的数量刚刚好,学生能够更好地集中注意力。讲师也非常友好、平易近人、乐于帮助。他们愿意在正常教学时间之外花费额外时间来为学生答疑解惑。他们优秀的教学和奉献精神是不容置疑的。此外,伯乐大学学院的工作人员也很亲切,随时准备帮助学生解决困难。

建议
我的特许公认会计师朋友们,特许公认会计师可以说是一个疯狂的过山车,永不停歇的学习和考试。因此,我们应该学着去享受,而不是担心和抱怨。当你遵循4P原则的时候,便会享受这个过程。4P原则就是:完美的时机、练习、坚持不懈和积极的肯定。完美的时机是指在特定的时间开始复习,并清楚在复习结束可以为考试做好充分准备。每个人的情况可能会有所不同。练习只是指尽可能多地练习过去一年的题或复习配套题。坚持不懈就是必须始终坚持学习计划,严以律己。最后是积极的肯定。常常告诉自己,你可以做到这一点,无论遇到什么困难都会做到。在别人相信你之前,你必须首先对自己有信心。俗话说:“避免失败的最好方法是下定决心要成功”。

There are several reasons why I like this English course. The main reason is because this course helped me a lot in my studies. For example, I had difficulties in writing essays but after completing the course, I no longer have any trouble doing so. In addition, I can feel the love and care among the lecturers and students.

Although most of the students come from different countries, we could work very well together and learn from each other. During the few months I spent in the English course, I not only learnt about English but I also learnt about the cultures of other countries from my friends. All lecturers were friendly and very patient when teaching us.

Thinking about the English course in KDU brings back all those good memories that I will never forget. Malaysia is the first country where I spent almost 2 years abroad. It was a wonderful journey in my life. 

Malaysians were so kind to me and I felt safe there. When I think of Malaysia, most of the good memories are connected with the English course in KDU. The teachers who teach their students from their hearts are the main reason for this. 

They also help and encourage their students to improve not just their English but also their character. My teachers gave me all kinds of opportunities to grow as a person. One day, I want to go back to Malaysia just to meet my wonderful English teachers again.

What I liked most about the CIENG programme were the enrichment activities. This is because students from different classes could get together and play language games. 

This gave me the chance to talk to them in order to improve my English. I also befriended students from different countries. We had many unforgettable experiences such as the trip to Melaka or just going to watch a movie or having a meal together.

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.
