SINTOK – The newly enrolled students at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) are encouraged to make the most of their study period by actively seeking knowledge and learning opportunities.
According to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dr Mohd Foad Sakdan, following study sessions in primary, secondary, matriculation and so on, the university level represents the final stage of formal education.
“Therefore, utilise the available time to acquire extensive knowledge. This includes exploring subjects related to your field of study as well as other disciplines such as religion, ethics, personal development and personal excellence apart from academics,” he said during a Chat Session with the Vice-Chancellor with new students for the 2023/2024 academic session at Muadzam Shah Hall, UUM.
