If you could change your decision, which institution would you enrol in now?

Unimas. There is a lot of emphasis on research and a good campus environment. – Joey, UKM 

UPM. My sister was there. – Han Jer Peng, Unisel 

Any private institution; the syallabus has strong links to industry and lectures are conducted in English. – Bernice Kam, UUM 

UTM. Good academic reputation and affordability. – Mysara Mohd Zainal, UPM 

MMU. Course is based on industry’s demands and very up-to-date. – Mohd Amin Kamis, Pusat Pendidikan Lanjutan (PPJ, UPM) 

Why HELP Institute? 

It’s near my house, so it’s very convenient and I don’t have to wake up early. – Jason Phoon, 20, BSc in Information Technlogy  

I like nothing in the college but it is the only one that offers a psychology double major. – Ashreena Kaur, 22, advertising and psychology double major 

I was studying somewhere else, but I didn’t like it so I decided to come to HELP. I’ve heard so much about it. – Siew Wai Mun, 19, to study IT at HELP soon 

It’s the nearest to my house and the lecturers are very experienced. – Melanie Muniandy (pic right), 17, A-Levels 

You can choose the subjects you want to do and even take a semester off. You can finish your degree fast. – Noruzian Suffian, 21, American Degree Programme  

Why Universiti Malaya? 

UM is the best. A lot of my family members studied here, so I know that the standard is guaranteed. Most of the students are hardworking and they are competitive, so it is a good academic culture. – Shahrizim Zulkifly (pic left), 26, MSc in Microbiology  

I didn’t apply for UM, they offered me a place, but now I’m glad I came here. The academic standard is high and the social life is not bad. Everyone mixes around. No one cares about race, as long as we study that’s okay. – Devi Peramalah, 24, MSc in Microbiology 

It wasn’t my first choice. My first is Universiti Sains Malaysia. I wanted to do mass communication there but they gave me Bachelor of Science in UM. After STPM, I felt that I had to just grab any opportunity I get. Anyway for work now we have to be flexible, so it doesn’t really matter what degree you have. – Chen Fee Chin, 23, BSc in Science and Technology Studies
