BERJAYA UCH regularly invites industry experts of the hospitality, tourism, culinary, communication, business and services fields to further promote learning beyond the classroom. General managers, group accounts, executive chefs and other leaders under the Berjaya Corporation Group of Companies and corporate partners are part of the long list of industry leaders invited to contribute their time and wealth of experience by sharing their working world views to students in a classroom setting. These industry experts supplement the programme's first-class line-up of lecturers by sharing their experiences and knowledge of the industry, offering real-life examples to complement textbook material.

Student Testimonials

Ben Chen, Canada

Hospitality Management, 3 Years

This is the second time I have come to Malaysia but this has been my longest stay. The first time I came I was only 10 years old and that was for a Taekwondo competition as well as vacation. Ten years later, I came back here initially for the same reason but then a family member persuaded me to join Berjaya University College of Hospitality.

The life in Malaysia compared to Canada is very different. It has taken me a year and half to get used to the heat and I am still trying to adapt. The one thing I love about Malaysia is that the food is great to eat, and as Malaysia is known to be “food heaven” that is all the more better for me, seeing as though I love food. The daily lifestyle in Malaysia is much different from back home and the climate and food has made an outbreak of pimples on my face so now I must really control the food I eat which is extremely hard to do. The people are kind and friendly and with the diverse languages here it is really testing my tongue, and on top of that it is an advantage to have a few more languages up my sleeve. The overall experience of Malaysia has been a great one and never ceases to amaze me, which is why Malaysia will always have a place in my heart.


Hiromi Rhondalee Granger, Zimbabwe

Hospitality Management, 3 Years

Studying in Malaysia has been a completely different experience. Joining Berjaya University College has given me the opportunity to be exposed to a number of different cultures, cuisine and people all at once. Learning in Malaysia is exciting because every day, I learn something different, new and interesting. I have learnt to take risks, understand different cultures and people and embrace every experience I have in this diverse country. The people in Malaysia are all friendly and pleasant to talk to. Malaysia offers a bit of everything and so far my journey in Malaysia has been unforgettable, queer, interesting and fun.
