Welcoming new students for September 2019 intake!

The new full-time students were reminded to adopt and apply the core values of respect, honesty and gratitude as they embarked on their university journey at WOU.

THE NEW STUDENTS LISTENING TO VALUABLE INSIGHTS FROM PROF ZORAINI.

In her welcome speech at the orientation held at the main campus today, WOU Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic & Educational Technology) Prof Zoraini Wati Abas added: “Having mutual respect for one another is key to getting along in life.  There is a need to instil a sense of gratitude, as well as to be honest in whatever you do.”

She elaborated that WOU is different from their previous experience within the school system, and hence the students must change their mindset and adapt accordingly. She advised them to attend lectures, do their assignments early, and not to procrastinate in studying for exams, adding, “You do your part, and we will do our part to help you graduate.”

ENCOURAGING THE STUDENTS TO SHOW MUTUAL RESPECT, TO BE THANKFUL AND TO EXPRESS GRATITUDE.

Prof Zoraini also spoke on self-leadership in which she encouraged the students to take the lead in realising their own dreams. “Think about your dreams and what you need to do to succeed. Be your own leader and model yourself on successful people in order to graduate; to become the person you want and are meant to be.”

Earlier, Nur Sabira Mohamad Mydin, from Bayan Lepas, who recently enrolled in the Accounting (BBAC) programme, led the freshmen in the oath-taking ceremony. Among the new students was Pon Chun Huon, 20, from Ayer Itam, who is physically challenged and will be pursuing his Management degree (BBMG) at WOU.
