UM Taking In 2,380 New Students For 2010 Postgraduate Programmes

A total of 2,380 new students are expected to register for postgraduate programmes in the University of Malaya starting July 2, 2010.

Its Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academic and International) Professor Dr Hamzah Rahman said that currently the university had around 10,000 postgraduate students, including about 25 percent international students from over 82 countries.

“I must say, it is not easy to get into this university…rejection rate is more than 60 percent because the demand for places in this university is much more than places available,” he said during the welcoming ceremony for new postgraduate candidates here.

Dr Hamzah said the university management had taken various steps to promote research activities and postgraduate education, including setting up eight research clusters which served as focal points for research projects conducted in the UM.

The university is also providing research grants worth RM90,000 for the PhD programme (over three years) and RM60,000 for Masters (over two years).

“The UM is the only research university in Malaysia that provides such grants to its postgraduate students,” he added.

Dr Hamzah said that the UM had also set up a unit called ‘Bright Spark‘ to attract outstanding postgraduate students and candidates selected would be given additional incentives such as monthly allowance and study scholarship.
