BATU GAJAH: Holders of the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) should pursue their studies at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar), said Utar chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik. 

He said 470 UEC holders were currently studying at the temporary Utar campus in Petaling Jaya. 

“We welcome those who are qualified to study in Utar,” he said after Clearwater Sanctuary Golf Resort executive director Kenny Yap presented a donation of RM80,000 to Dr Ling for the Utar building fund. 

The money was raised at the Clearwater-Utar Charity Golf 2003 here yesterday.

Dr Ling said that most UEC holders were pursuing their studies in other countries such as Taiwan and China.  

“Utar offers a new opportunity for them to pursue their tertiary education locally where our fees are much more lower and this will also help the Government to save on the foreign exchange,” he said. 

He said Utar was a private university run by professionals, adding that the institution was for all races.  

Yap, in his speech, said the donation was a small way of showing their support to Utar in the building of a premier university.
