Ibnu Syauqhi

Bachelor of Quantity Surveyor (Hons)

Country of Origin: Indonesia
Course Duration: 4 Semester
Period of Study: 2 Years
Year enrolled: Year 1 Semester 1

So I just want to tell my experience during my first semester I attended the University College of Technology Sarawak (UCTS) Malaysia. Carrying a degree as an international student is not an easy matter. In addition to the moral burden that we must be able to carry the nation's good name and contribute positively to the Indonesian nation, we must also be able to adapt to a new environment that requires a high level of adaptation. Not to mention we must immediately be able to adapt to various subjects and learning patterns as students. UCTS has adequate facilities and the environment here is very nice, fresh air, a calm and clean environment is perfect for students who want to continue their goals at UCTS. I hope this will be an adventure for me and I am very grateful to be able to continue my studies at UCTS.

First of all, I am very happy to come to UCTS to study. Secondly, I come to a new environment to experience different culture and educational ideas so that I can understand the outside world further. In the process of learning, the lecturer's careful explanation and students' best efforts to help, let me feel one at ease. Finally, the biggest difference in education is teamwork I know how to communicate better and solve problem more independently.
