COVID-19: Adapting operations in light of pandemic

Since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic, we have been committed to protecting the health, safety and wellbeing of our community. Though we have taken strict actions to ensure there is no face-to-face learning, we are ensuring that our students' education can continue, while adhering to government requirements.

Having reviewed the COVID-19 situation here in Malaysia and internationally, we have decided that all lectures and other learning activities will be online until the end of Semester 2. Giving students the ability to continue to progress their studies online means they can graduate when they had first intended. We will continue to monitor the situation and adjust our offerings as and when necessary.

We have established an RM1.5 million Student Compassionate and Hardship package to aid students who are experiencing hardship due to the circumstances relating to COVID-19. We have also streamlined the process of scholarship extension for our doctoral students, along with funding an additional three-month "thesis completion" scholarship for those whose research has been disrupted by the Movement Control Order.

We continue to monitor the situation, including the advice of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Malaysian government's Health Ministry.
