Alumni Testimonials

Diploma in Culinary Arts / Grad Year 2009 / Current employer: Shangri-la Hotel, Singapore

I would like to share my experience and success, which I've achieved in life as a graduate of Diploma in Culinary Arts at UNITAR batch of 2007-2009. I started my first semester at UNITAR Petaling Jaya (ITTAR) and graduated at UNITAR Kelana Jaya. I am very grateful for what I've learned at UNITAR and for what I have achieved today. After completing my studies, I worked at several leading 5 star hotels in Kuala Lumpur and all over Malaysia, such as Royale Chulan Hotel Kuala Lumpur, Westin Langkawi Resort & Spa and Hilton Kuala Lumpur.

I also took part in various cooking competitions and won Silver Medal in "FHM"s Meat Cooking' and Gold Medal for "FHM's Malay Cuisine". Also, I'm one of the Semi Finalists in the "Black Box Challenge" of Penang's Chapter and amongst the selected 5 contestants to represent Malaysia in Chaine des Rotisseurs, Istanbul 2010. Alhamdulillah and I am blessed that I was offered a job in Doha, Qatar and it was there that I won a Bronze Medal in "Terrine and Patte Showpieces" at the Middle East Gulf Country Diyafa Salon Culinaire 2012.

Now I have returned to Asia where I have accepted an offer from one of the Shangri-La hotels that was first opened back in 1971, Shangri-La Hotel Singapore, as a Malay Cuisine Sous Chef. I would like to say thank you to my parents who gave me their support and of course to all the lecturers at UNITAR, and also my friends. Without the education and encouragement from all of you, I would not be where I am today.

Bachelor of Education (Hons) / Grad Year 2008 / Current Employment: Sayfol International School

Part of a university education is to provide training for a future career through various subjects and tests that all lead to a university degree, which brings career opportunities and a higher pay. UNITAR has gone beyond that. UNITAR taught me that university education is more than memorizing books and facts. It is more than a framed certificate on a wall that can be used to impress future employers. UNITAR's education system is designed to last a lifetime, not just through a career.

UNITAR's great lecturers moulded me to become an effective teacher. Besides my parents and friends, UNITAR lecturers played an important role in helping me achieve a 1st class degree. I am very thankful to all the lecturers who taught me the art and science of teaching. Currently, I am a Mathematics teacher at Sayfol International School. I am imparting all the knowledge and skills that I acquired at UNITAR, through my teaching. I am proud to be a former UNITAR student.

Bach of Management (Hons) / Class of 2009 / Current employer: Multimedia Development Corporation

I have a long history with UNITAR. I started my first career in the University and a few years later the University offered me a full scholarship on a part-time basis to further my studies with a bachelor degree. I did not think twice and just grabbed the opportunity, of course.

The unique element about UNITAR is its hybrid mode of study where working adults who cannot take time off work to attend classes on weekdays, can still opt for part time classes on weekends.

Being a part time student is no different to full-time learning. The content, quality and course curriculum taught by lecturers are the same. In fact, having working adults from various industries as classmates opens up opportunities for critical thinking, discussions and knowledge sharing, which make classes more interactive and interesting.

Lecturers in UNITAR are second to none. They are sincerely dedicated, and always deliver beyond expectations. Their passion really shines through the creative teaching methods, assisted by state-of-the-art facilities in the University. The efficiency of its support staff, from the frontline to the back-end office is something the University can be really proud of.

I can never thank UNITAR enough for making me what I am today. Learning will never stop and is a lifelong process. If you want an environment that supports learning at your own time and pace, UNITAR is definitely the place to go.
