UUM ONLINE: A total of 515 students registered for the Second Semester of the 2016/2017 Academic Session (A162) at the TM Student Residential Hall recently. The event involved the enrolment of 472 local students and 43 international students.
According to Mr. Mohd Fairus Abd Majid, a Senior Assistant Director at the Student Affairs Department, of the 515 newly registered students, 134 were male students while 381 were female, thus, showing, similar to last year, a higher intake of female students than male students.
"The registration for student accommodation went smoothly in the morning at the EON Student Residential Hall. This was followed by a briefing session for the parents and guardians presented by the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Abdul Malek Abdul Karim, at DKG 2/1.
"UUM also accepted the enrolment of disabled students, primarily those who are visually and physically challenged,” he said.
Later on, in the evening, the students took their pledge of loyalty during the Pledge Taking Ceremony in the hall of the TM Student Residential Hall to mark the beginning of their journey as UUM undergraduates. This was part of the Orientation Week programme.
The recitation of the pledge was led by Muhammad Ashraf Wajdi Zakaria in the presence of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Abdul Malek Abdul Karim and the UUM management team.
