WEDNESDAY, 14 SEPTEMBER – Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) through its Faculty of Psychology and Education (FPP) recently sent six students to the Credit Mobility Programme to Universitas Mercu Buana (UMB), Indonesia.
Deputy Dean of Student Affairs (HEP) and Alumni FPP, Dr. Getrude Cosmas said, all the students involved were those under the Industrial and Organisational Programme, Youth and Community Development Programme and the Child and Family Psychology Programme.
“They will be in the programme for one semester or six months before returning to UMS,” he said in a statement.
He also led the group to Jakarta and shared his experience, where they were warmly received by students of UMB who had participated in the same programme at UMS.
“We were warmly received by them and was given a detailed briefing about UMB campus at the handing over session of UMS students to UMB there.
”We are very grateful to UMB and were warmly welcomed by six principal officers of the university led by the representative of the Rector of Institutional and Resources Discipline, Dr. Purwanto SK,” Dr. Getrude added.
The UMS students in the group were also brought around the UMB campus, including to the Faculty of Psychology, Library, Student Training Centre, Research Centre and other places of interest within the campus.
Also joining them in the delegation to UMB Jakarta was the Assistant Registrar of FPP, Jamal Atong.
Meanwhile, Dr. Getrude also said, the collaboration between UMS-UMB through the credit mobility programme provided an opportunity for students in the Psychology programme to gain new experience and knowledge, which may vary with the environment in UMS.
“There are some courses in psychology that are not offered by FPP but are offered at UMB such as Forensic and Learning Difficulties Analysis Psychology,” she added.
Six UMS students have so far been selected to attend this mobility programme namely, Chiew Hing Chun, Noor Syazlin Noh, Nurul Nabila Burhanuddin, Dhasni Chander, Ruvina Indran and Herdanarena Samsuddin. – (fl)
