Merdeka Award Grant for International Attachment Application Deadline Extended to February 29, 2016

The Merdeka Award Secretariat is pleased to announce that the closing date for applications for the 2016 Merdeka Award Grant for International Attachment has been extended to Monday, February 29, 2016.

This follows calls from institutions of higher learning as well as prospective applicants, who have requested for the extension to accommodate research and exam schedules. The extension will allow for more young Malaysians to submit their applications for this prestigious Grant.

The Merdeka Award Grant for International Attachment is a signature outreach programme of the Merdeka Award Trust. It is designed to identify and recognise outstanding young Malaysians, between the ages of 22 – 35, who personify the Spirit of Merdeka, and those who, in their own way, demonstrate a commitment to excellence. The Grant provides them the opportunity to expand their network and to enhance research collaborations through a short-term attachment at selected, internationally-recognised host institu…

Senator: Unqualified English Teachers in Kelantan Lead to Poor English Standard among Students

New Straits Times:
Some schoolchildren in Kelantan are being taught to pronounce the word ‘cucumber’ as “Chu Chum Ber”.

They are also being told by their teachers that hibiscus should be pronounced “Hee Bis Coose”.

This was the startling claim made by a Dewan Negara senator today in relation to the supposedly poor standard of English teachers in Kelantan schools.

Senator Khairiah Mohamed said the problem is only the tip of the iceberg as students are exposed to countless grammatical errors. This should not be viewed in isolation as a problem unique to Kelantan. In fact, many local university graduates are unable to converse in proper English. The bigger problem is the whole education system and the implementation of English in Malaysian education system.

USM Denied Masturbation Policy Notice

Sinar Harian's report in Malay "USM nafi keluarkan notis onani":
University of Science Malaysia (USM) has officially denied the masturbation policy notice widely circulated on social media below:


Universiti Sains Malaysia MASTURBATION NOTICE Masturbation in the showers and bathrooms stalls is a violation of the University of Science Malaysia Hostel Code.
Our drains are not built to withstand semen.
Every year, USM spends thousands in maintenance because of the excessive amount of semen stuck in the pipes. The repair cost is applied directly to your hostel agreement next year. This cost cannot be charged to the bursar, as the repair is done through independent contractors, not USM personnel.
It's your semen, it's your money.
PLEASE, masturbate in your bedroom.
Contact your Ketua Aras if you have questions regarding masturbation policy.

A significant 70% of respondents said that the standards of fresh graduates were just average, while 24% believed that they were bad and only 6 % said they were good.  The poor ratings were not generally linked to their academic qualifications, but rather their poor attitudes and communication skills shown during interviews or at work.

However, the average salary offered to fresh graduat…

Malaysia Government Fundings for Local Public Universities (IPTA)

Interesting fact: UiTM and UIAM get such a huge funding! This is rather surprising as both are not research universities and never appear in any top world university rankings. The only explanation or justification for such a huge funding would be UiTM is a bumiputera university while UIAM is an islamic university. Also, another interesting fact: USM actually gets more government fundings compared to UM even though USM ranks below UM in top university rankings.

UTAR Claims High Graduate Employability

The Star Online: Nearly all Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (Utar) student secure jobs upon graduation due to their marketability, said Utar president Datuk Prof Dr Chuah Hean Teik.

“I was a bit worried for our students owing to the current domestic and global economic situation.

“But based on a survey in July, six months after students’ final examinations earlier this year, 97.27% out of 2,000 graduates secured jobs after graduating,” he said.This seems good news at first, except when you discovered who actually did the survey - none other than UTAR itself. Nothing to shout about really, just like hundreds of local colleges and universities you meet at the education fair claiming their education institutions are the best.

MARA to Stop Sponsoring Students to Taylor's University - Ismail Sabri

The Malaysian Insider:Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) will no longer be sponsoring any student to Taylor's University over myriad reasons, said Rural and Regional Development Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob today.Everyone can guess the cause of this decision. Taylor's University terminated its contract with Wawasan Sutera last Thursday, a day after the rally took place on September 16. It said that the bus services will continue to run until the termination notice on November 16.

It also said it did not authorise use of the bus bearing its logo, to ferry 'red shirt' rally goers.

UM Ranked 146th in QS World University Rankings 2015/2016

The Star Online:
QS Intelligence Unit head of research Ben Sowter said UM, which is ranked 146th, is still Malaysia’s number one.

The sharpest rise is seen in USM which is up 20 places to 289 compared to 309 in 2014 and Universiti Putra Malaysia which climbed up 45 places to 331 this year. Not much improvement in the past five years for University of Malaya (UM). The spotlight is on Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). What were the causes for such a drastic drop? Expect the vice chancellor to come out a press statement criticising the ranking methods used by QS as a typical excuse. Perhaps change of management is inevitable...
