Another former Foundation student, Farid Bazlee bin Haji Morsidi from Brunei, remarked that although he faced a lot of challenges throughout his Foundation study, his course mates and lecturers were always ready to help him overcome them, adding that the university’s modern facilities provided an excellent study environment.
“I can find everything I need on campus such as study areas, a choice of food outlets, banking facilities, a campus bookshop, surau and public transport. I can also make use of recreational facilities such as the multi-purpose Recreation and Event Centre,” said Farid.
