Tuan Syaripah Najihah – Malaysia Higher Education Scholarship

I chose to study a master's in agricultural science as it will help me understand more about my field, Agronomy. With this qualification, I can pursue my study on to PhD level.

The lecturers on my programme are extremely knowledgeable and are keen to help students in developing their skills and knowledge. All my course mates are from different backgrounds and experiences, which I found to be very interesting. The facilities at university are really good.

We are offered a lot of additional classes to assist with our studies. It is really helpful as an international student. There is also lot of one-to-one support from academic staff to help students.

I've gained a lot confidence, especially in presentation and writing skills, making friends and speaking English.

I really enjoy studying here. It is better than I expected. Everyone is warm, helpful and welcoming. I do not feel alienated here. It feels like home. This university is very Muslim-friendly as it has Muslim Centre in the main campus and master study room to perform prayer as well as halal food on the main campus.

I would absolutely recommend a scholarship to students considering studying a Masters. It has not only helped pay for my tuition fees, but also gave me an allowance every month to pay for other expenses.
