KANGAR, March 21 – Affordable academic fees, quality teaching staff and job opportunities upon graduation are among the reasons why students choose to further their studies at Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP), said Raja Muda of Perlis Tuanku Syed Faizuddin Putra Jamalullail(pic).
Despite the university’s relatively young age of 11, it has plenty of achievements to its name at the national and international level. Speaking at the 2012 UniMAP Seri Gemilang Award ceremony at the university’s main campus in Pauh Putra, near here last night, he said the institution had been ranked Tier 5 on the SETARA rating for excellence in its engineering discipline.
Tuanku Syed Faizuddin, who is also UniMAP Chancellor, said the university also boasts of 100 laboratories for students to use and students need not worry about accommodation as residential colleges are available to all. Regarding the academic fees, he said engineering students would pay RM1,868 for the first semester while business study students are charged RM1,718, adding that the fees would be reduced for subsequent semesters.
International students are imposed academic fees of RM3,710 per semester. Also present at the ceremony was Perlis Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Dr Md Isa Sabu.
