Your Educational Success. Your Empowering Solutions.

By UOW Malaysia

Gone are the days where a degree can guarantee you a job upon your graduation. According to the Centre for Future Labour Market Studies (EU-ERA) statistics in 2023, approximately 90,000 graduates in Malaysia are facing unemployment. A survey conducted by Malaysia’s Ministry of Education (MOE) indicates that one of the key reasons for graduate unemployment is the lack of skills, knowledge, and attitudes sought by employers.

At UOW Malaysia, we understand the evolving demands of the job market and are committed to ensuring our graduates are well-prepared to meet these challenges. Our comprehensive programs are designed not only to provide a strong academic foundation but also to equip students with the practical skills and professional attitudes that employers are actively seeking.

The shift from secondary education to tertiary education involves significant changes, including increased academic expectations, a new level of personal responsibility, and the need for effective time management.

At UOW Malaysia, we believe that your success begins with proper preparation. Our pre- tertiary workshop is designed to equip you with the tools and confidence needed to excel in your university studies and beyond. Besides that, one of the key components of our pre- tertiary workshops is mental health awareness. We recognize that maintaining mental well- being is crucial for academic and personal success. The transition to university life can bring about significant changes and challenges, and being prepared to manage your mental health is essential. By prioritizing mental health awareness from the beginning, you can build resilience, develop healthy coping strategies, and ensure that you are mentally prepared for the demands of university life.

To kick off your journey at UOW Malaysia with excitement, we also organize a campus-wide scavenger hunt before your first university class begin. This fun and engaging activity is designed to help you get acquainted with the campus, meet new friends, and start building a sense of community.
