How much can we learn in a university classroom in two days?
Quite a lot, especially in a world-class university and with top-notch lecturers.
For school-leavers to get a taste of this, UOW Malaysia KDU has prepared a once-in-a-lifetime chance for them to immerse themselves in a university classroom.
This privilege will help them see and feel for themselves what tertiary education entails, allowing them to make informed decisions on what and how they wish to study in their years to come.
The campuses' Classroom Experience is open to all school-leavers at no charge. As per UOW Malaysia KDU's high-level observance of Covid-19 precautions, however, each class is limited to only 25 students; so do not procrastinate and sign up quickly if you agree that a sneak preview into university learning is of value to you.
The classes will happen on April 23 and 24. There will be a class each in Penang and Selangor.
A bevy of lecturers will lead you in a wide variety of subjects from 10am to 4pm.
IF YOU CHOOSE SELANGOR
Your morning begins with a session on "Code Makers & Code Breakers".
Aside from the languages we use when interacting with humans, there are other languages used when we must talk with machines. They are called codes.
