Special Needs Educator 

SNS Child & Family Development Centre

"As an alumnus of TARUMT, the university is a warm place that welcomes students from different social backgrounds. The fees of education are affordable to most students and there are a myriad of financial assistance and scholarships available for students to apply. Most importantly, the lecturers and tutors are responsible and dedicated in providing the educational resources and assistance needed by every student who seeks help and is willing to learn. For every departmental and faculty office, the staff are patient in answering the students’ enquiries and are happy to provide help for students in the effort of providing quality management services to the students.


As a Psychology graduate of TARUMT, the courses that I have been through provided me with the practical, theoretical, and research foundation that facilitates my future career. Having the theoretical foundation of Developmental Psychology, Educational Psychology, as well as Disorders of Childhood & Adolescence greatly facilitates my transition in learning and adapting to my current job responsibilities as a Special Needs Educator. Besides, mastering various Counselling and Psychology courses throughout my studies provided me the foundational knowledge needed for me to further my Master’s studies overseas. In my opinion, one’s ability to keep on learning precedes one’s past academic achievement, and in this line of thought, the assignments and classroom activities designed by the lecturers allows me to always research and gain new knowledge that are not limited by the textbooks. As such, I am grateful to be an alumnus of TARUMT, and I warmly welcome you to be part of TARUMT too."


Assistant Registrar 

Department of International Student Office, TAR UMT

"I am a TAR UMT graduate and have been working with TAR UMT for about 1 and a half years now. From my experience, TAR UMT prepares the students to step into the workforce; it trained me to communicate confidently and effectively as well as improved my problem-solving skills.

As a graduate of the English programme, I had been exposed to various aspects of the language – from language related skills to knowledge on literature and drama. The courses I had taken not only helped with my oratory skills, but also my written as well as people skills.

My daily tasks as an Assistant Registrar today include, but are not limited to handling everyday inquiries from International students on Student Visa matters, applying, renewing and cancelling of Student Visas, communicate with officers from Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS) on student visa matters as well as meeting Immigration Officers too. The language skills and knowledge I had acquired from my English degree programme has equipped me with the skills that enable to perform my daily tasks more efficient while being able to communicate with individuals from various backgrounds effectively."
