Institutional linkages and partnerships among universities have become a crucial lifeline to the growth and development of a university. Student mobility, in particular, is a vital component of a modern university’s profile. The benefits that can be accredited to a university when it determines to internationalise its campus are many and far-reaching.

Hosting international students on campus, for example, invigorates all the processes of achievements and excellence. By participating in the university’s life and culture, foreign students expand their horizons and broaden their perspective whilst cultivating a heightened sense of self-awareness as they are embark on a new journey.

Considering the numerous impact of such Mobility programme, Universiti Kuala Lumpur via Malaysian Institute of Information Technology (UniKL MIIT) started the initiative to encourage many international students to pursue their one-semester Exchange Programme and various short courses such as English as a Second Language (ESL), Edu-Tourism, internship, joint-project supervisions and many more activities.

As the pioneer IT school in Malaysia, UniKL MIIT graduates are highly demanded by industries due to its unique curriculum design which caters to the need of the industry such as Computer Engineering Technology, Cybersecurity, Software Engineering, Informatics & Analytics, as well as Creative Multimedia & Animation. This has enabled us to nominate and send out countless of our faculty members and students to various university partners in Austria, Cambodia, France, Indonesia, Kazakhstan and particularly, South Korea via our International Mobility Programme which was initiated back in 2008.

Students are encouraged to join such mobility programmes during their final semester, in which they are also required to undergo their industrial internship.  In this manner the students will benefit the most as not only will they undergo a different cultural experience, but also have the opportunity to enhance their academic maturity and technical skills. Such programmes also enable our students to reappraise their goals which include post-graduate studies via the many scholarship opportunities offered by the host universities. 

Check out what UniKL MIIT students who have participated in ISEM have to say about it…

Nur Amira Abdul Razak, a Bachelor in Computer Entrepreneurial Management (BCEM) student of UniKL MIIT, finds the language ability to be most useful especially when communicating with new friends and lecturers at Semyung University during her four-month Internship programme.

Nur Amira Abdul Razak, a Bachelor in Computer Entrepreneurial Management (BCEM) student of UniKL MIIT, finds the language ability to be most useful especially when communicating with new friends and lecturers at Semyung University during her four-month Internship programme.

“Koreans are very patriotic and would speak Korean as much as possible. Initially, I had difficulty in conversing with my classmates especially during the first month but I managed to improve on my language skills at the end of my stay. My friends and I participated in a Hangul Writing Competition which required us to write a short essay in Korean. It was fun!”

Nur Amira also found the Korean students to be very focused in studies other than being extremely punctual. Those are the traits that Amira and the rest of the Malaysian students came to admire and emulate.

Afiq Asnawi Norsham, formerly a Diploma in Engineering Technology student of UniKL MIIT, speaks of his experience in doing his Third and Final Year Bachelor Programme at Semyung University.Afiq is one of the participants for the ACE Global Scholarship Programme (AGSP) conducted at Semyung University. The scholarship had benefited 23 UniKL MIIT diploma students in the past as it enabled them to further their studies for two years atSemyung and be awarded with a degree upon completion of the programme. Via such a mobility programme, students then return to Universiti Kuala Lumpur for another academic year and be conferred with another degree by UniKL.

“Semyung’s affiliation with many high-profiled industries is an advantage and is one of the very reasons I chose it. Of course, there were challenges that I had to face, such as most of my classes were conducted in Korean.  Thus, I had to double up my effort when it came to studying. I made it a point to study the topic prior to a class so I would be able to understand the lecture when it took place. Similarly, I would revise the topic after class including meeting the lecturer for consultation.”

Both Amira and Afiq’s enthusiasm is also felt by another 18 UniKL MIIT students who would be undergoing their Internship at various countries namely South Korea, Denmark, Cambodia and Russia effective March 2017.

UniKL MIIT Media Coverage for International Exchange Matters

Abdullah ‘Afifi Abdul Aziz, a Bachelor in Computer Systems and Security (BCSS) graduate, strongly believed that studying abroad is something that every student should experience as it will help them to think outside of the box. Born and raised in Jordan, ‘Afifi chose Universiti Kuala Lumpur for its high academic standards, employment success and a prime location. Together with ten other UniKL MIIT students of various academic backgrounds, ‘Afifi undertook his internship in South Korea.

Afifi’s view was shared by Ahmad Faiz Ahmed Riad, now a Bachelor in Computer Engineering (BCE) graduate who was offered a partial scholarship by Business Academy Aarhus, Denmark.

“Why Denmark? It is a rare opportunity and one that I must seize!” says Faiz.

Some of UniKL MIIT students choose to do their Internship in ASEAN countries such as Cambodia. Nabilah Mahadzir, a Bachelor in Interactive Multimedia Design (BIMD) student looks forward to her time at Royal University of Agriculture (RUA), Cambodia along with four more UniKL MIIT young ambassadors.

“Unlike South Korea which is more advanced, Cambodia provides me with an opportunity to serve the community. And of course, I have always been intrigued with Angkor Watt and its structure,” claims Nabilah.

To date, UniKL MIIT’s International Mobility Programme has benefited hundreds of its students and staff, with many more eyeing for similar opportunities in the future. Other than establishing and strengthening network opportunities between the participating universities, such mobility programmes enable the transfer of knowledge, technology and skills, provides opportunities for future academic/ research advancement, as it polishes students’ professional skills for future career opportunities, and at the same time increases their self-esteem and goal achievement.
