The sixth semester in WOU’s academic milestone saw the new students attending the Orientation Day simultaneously held in Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh and Johor, while students in the East Coast had theirs a day earlier in Kota Bharu.

More than 600 new students have enrolled at WOU nationwide. The students each received goodie bags comprising WOU t-shirts, pens and orientation CDs upon registration for orientation.

A pre-recorded welcome address by Vice Chancellor Tan Sri Emeritus Professor Gajaraj Dhanarajan was projected on the screen. Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Wong Tat Meng extended a warm welcome to the students, reiterating in his speech the university’s commitment and readiness to help students in their educational journey.
