– Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) student, Wong Tyan Tzu was one of 20 Public and Private Higher Learning Institutions students selected for the Malaysia-Mexico Mobility Programme recently.
The Faculty of Psychology and Education (FPP) student was selected to this programme organised by Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in collaboration with the Mexican government after he successfully convinced the panel during an interview session conducted at the Student Affairs Department (HEP) UMS.
Speaking when contacted by media, Tyan Tzu said, the programme that was held for three weeks beginning 25 January until 16 February had given him an extraordinary experience.
“We were exposed to the various Mexican cultures that had become a traditional culture practiced until today. Besides that, participants also learned about social science, engineering, international business and also gastronomy by attending lectures every day,” he said.
Recognising that the opportunity was an invaluable one for him, Tyan Tzu also added that they had the chance to make a social and cultural tour conducted in Malinalco, Valle De Bravo, Teotohuacan and Metepec.
“I want to thank the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Datuk Dr. Mohd Harun Abdullah and Deputy Vice-Chancellor Student Affairs and Alumni (HEPA), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ismail Ali for their encouragement and support given to me during the programme,” he quipped.
Among the public universities involved were Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), Universiti Malaysia Kelantan (UMK), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM), Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), and Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN). – ZMD (fl)
