How to Get Scholarship For Your University Studies?

When having chats with students, we will always come across this question: “So got scholarship or not?” It’s pretty common because tertiary education will cost a bomb and burned pockets with dragon fire.  Is financial aid so hard to obtain? Here is a step-by-step guide on securing financial aid for your uni studies.

1) Finding programmes that interest you

A lot of students come in with their SPM/O-Level result with large question marks hanging over their heads? “I have no idea what I should be studying.” Once again, you are not alone.

Often, our first question to students is “What are you interested in?” We try to gauge the strength and passion of students. Things like Wwhat do you enjoy most during your school days? What would you like to be in the future? A lot of student just laugh when asked: “What is your ambition?” Trust me, it’s a valid question and we have been writing essays concerning that topic since we are in primary school.

In short, try pick a career path to pursue. There are financial aids that are offered by corporations that focused on speciality.  Scholarships like Genting Sanyen and Samling Scholarships preferred students which are interested in engineering, IT or Arts discipline.

Asking For Feedback During University Studies

Getting feedback from others, be it classmates, lecturers or tutors, can be a rewarding experience to your personal development and growth. There’s the generalisation that we, Malaysian (and mostly Asian) students tend to hold back when it comes to asking for feedback. It tends to be the reality as we are, sadly, not schooled to be vocal and responsive.

So how do we get the best out of the usage of feedback in our university years?

Many universities have setup various feedback avenues for students. Be it online blackboards, emails, tutor meetings and seminars, students have ample opportunities to gain feedback from various sources.

Who to Ask For Feedback?

Lecturer – Usually, the first point of feedback should be the lecturer responsible for your course module. Setup a meeting with him/her to discuss feedback. It can be about your progress so far, assignments questions or module discussions. Continue reading Asking For Feedback During University Studies
