Intakes: Mar, Jun, Sept / Oct
I started my studies at IUKL in March 2017 after completing my IEP (Intensive English Programme) class and right now I’m in my 1st semester for my degree programme. IUKL has an induction programme which I think is a good start for new students, both local and international. That is the time when new students get to know more about the university, tour around the campus and get close to their seniors. I love with the accommodation offered by IUKL. It is comfortable and fully furnished with all the amenities required. The surrounding is also safe with 24-hour security.
I am the President of Architecture Club and I have been actively involved in events and workshops. It was a privilege for me to be the Head of Delegates during the 26th Architectural Workshop (Tiang Seri) 2014 and winning four awards. I have gained valuable experience and I will continue using the opportunity I have here to achieve the best that I can.
I feel safe here in IUKL as I grew up in a protective family. Though I was very scared when I first came here, everything went smoothly for me as I was well guided by IUKL staff. Lecturers are super helpful as well. I have always loved architecture. It’s a dream come true to be able to take the programme. I love studio work and site visits as it’s so interesting to be able to work on projects and analyze locations before working on the project. I am now in my final semester and I am happy I chose to study at IUKL. I am certainly grateful to be here.
IUKL is an established multicultural university, as how I expected it to be. This is a place where cultures from all over the world meet. The teaching method here is full of fun and creative. The lecturers are friendly and approachable.
I was a recipient of the IUKL Tuition Fee Waiver during my first year. I was grateful to have received the waiver. It was a big help for me and my family and a reward for my hard work. Being an Architecture student has been enjoyable. Through subjects such as Environmental Sciences & Building Services, I get to learn in-depth about architecture. Other subjects like Architecture Appreciation help me to appreciate and understand old monuments, design and structure.
So far I’m happy with the decision that I made to come here. I do really enjoy my university life here, and maybe one of the reasons for that is because drawing is my passion. And other than that, the lecturers that teach my course are also friendly and the same goes for my classmates too. Usually during the semester break, my friends and I, always go to explore nice places here. So far we’ve been to many islands and other tourist spots too such as Malacca, Perhentian Island, Redang Island, Sibu Island, Langkawi, Tioman, Penang. And for now we plan to go to Sabah and Sarawak, but we are still trying to find the available time for that.
I was not sure about what I exactly want to do in my life, I tried several options, and at the end I found what my soul lies to. IUKL helped me to realize my dream of studying Architecture. Though it was quite difficult to study at the Faculty of Architecture but IUKL made it so enjoyable that I never felt tired to learn more and more. Learning takes a lot of my time, and my strength, but I do not regret. Because, in exchange of all these hard works, what I am achieving is really priceless. I am really enjoying my journey at IUKL because I like what I'm studying.
Having studied in IUKL for more than two years, I am happy with the learning environment here as it very conducive to develop our talents. We also have a platform to show off our talent. The lecturers here are helpful all the time. We are able to communicate effectively with our lecturers. To me, this is the best part of my university life, as a university is a place for exchanging or expressing your thoughts and ideas.
“ It was hard at first because I missed my family and I had to cope with so many things. But as time goes by, I am coping well with all the work and responsibilities. I used to procrastinate a lot, but now I don’t. I mean, I cannot do that anymore. I need to complete things gradually, bit by bit because the work is a lot and it is not just one! I might have 2 or 3 projects going on at the same time. My classmates, are nice. They are also shy but I approach them for group work and assignment. The lecturers are very nice and helpful. I am grateful for what I have now.
I’ve been in IUKL since my foundation year and I love studying here. My lecturers are very helpful and approachable. They are always available for consultation and they are knowledgeable in their field. Architecture is really fun. I now see buildings in a different way and understand how it helps the community. I joined the architecture workshop in Johor Bharu and it was fun to get to know students from other universities. I am a member of the IUKL Christian Fellowship where we get to gather, talk about faith, values, and so much more. Through the club, I am able to make many friends not only from Malaysia, but from other countries as well. They are my family here in IUKL and it makes being here really fun.
I love the IUKL campus and the lecturers. The lecturers are knowledgeable in their field of studies and they guide the students professionally. I love the mixture of cultures and nationalities in IUKL. I have friends from Middle-East countries, Nigeria, not to mention, Malaysia. I took part in the Wall-Arts Competition during KLOBS 2018. It was an enriching experience for me and I look forward to many opportunities to come.
The first time I knew about IUKL was when their representative came to my country to showcase their courses at an exhibition there. I chose IUKL because it has the architecture program, the program that my dad asked me to pursue. I also like drawing and the idea of creating something, that's why I chose to follow what my dad suggested, which is to study architecture here. I’m happy to study here, because first of all I get a 100% scholarship from the government of my country. Secondly, the people here are very nice too, especially my classmates. Other than that, because my course requires the students to go on field trips, I’ve been visited a few nice places around Malaysia with my classmates. For example, we went to Malacca.
I chose IUKL because of the affordable fees and my application into IUKL was hassle free. Everything went smoothly for me and here I am. Staying in the hostel is good. Our safety is assured and it is situated at a strategic location facing De Centrum Shopping Mall and it is just a short walk from my faculty. And yeah, it has really made my life easier.
I like being here at IUKL, the university especially my faculty, FABE is full of life. The thing that I enjoy the most is doing studio work. Even though it is time consuming and requires lot of attention to details, I can adapt to it very well.
I have always had an interest in buildings and designs and that is how I decided to take Architecture. Having been here for three years, I have seen and experienced the development of the university. I love the development and how IUKL has grown now but I do miss what we had before as well. It has been wonderful studying here. I had my adventure of trying out all sorts of food, getting to know all sorts of people from different countries and made the best of my three years in Malaysia. I enjoyed every bit of it.
I joined IUKL after a recommendation from my friend. I love studying here because the environment is very peaceful. I am an architecture student and I love my course. I used to think that architecture is all about drawing buildings, but I learned that it involves psychology and critical thinking as well because you have to think of every aspect when you want to design something. So, it encourages me to be more critical when I do my assignments. Other than studying, I also participate in events. I was one of the committee members in charge of designing the magazine for the Chinese Society. I am also an ARCA committee member who is in charge of exhibitions. If you are interested in architecture, I recommend you to come and study here because you can really learn a lot in IUKL.
My friends and I registered in IUKL together and my first choice had always been architecture. It is such an interesting course because I get to know how architects think and analyse things. My favourite subject is studio, because I am able to apply everything that I have learned. I joined the Asian Young Designer competition sponsored by Nippon Paint and I am also part of the Chinese Society. I enjoyed being in the club and meeting new people. I applied for the Sin Chew Daily Education Fund at the end of my first year and it helped a lot in paying for my education. Many people believe that you need to have really high grades to apply for scholarship, but that is not true. You should take a chance because you’ll never know until you try.
Drawing has been my passion for ages. And architecture is the field that I want to dedicate my life to. Being able to pursue my studies in architecture is like a dream come true. IUKL has good lecturers. All of them are committed to give their best. They are also keen to see their students excel in class. They nurture and guide us to the right path.
I decided to further my studies at IUKL because of its achievement and professional recognition in Architectural studies. IUKL is one of the best in this field. The student life at IUKL is vibrant and indeed, I feel delighted to be able to join the activities held around the campus. I play guitar and percussion for the IUKL Music Club. That is one of the ways for me to “escape” from the study workload and be a stress reliever for me. I also play dodge ball and basket ball to maintain my fitness.
I received tuition fee waiver for the first few semesters in IUKL. Apart form that, I was also a scholarship recipient from my country, Maldives. Both the waiver and scholarship was a motivation for me to perform better. I took badminton as a subject in my last semester. Hence, I participated in the badminton competition arranged by students for an assignment. I won silver in the doubles women category.
