The Perdana Learning Hub located outside Library provides learning support to students at any stage, from your initial transition into undergraduate study at the University to postgraduate coursework and higher degree research.

We’ve developed a number of resources to help you independently develop your skills in:

  • – writing
  • – critical thinking
  • – research skills
  • – group work
  • – exam preparation
  • – time management
  • – oral presentations.

We also provide face-to-face support, offering workshops and individual consultations to provide targeted assistance with your academic communication, learning and research needs.

 

The International Student Mentorship Program is a volunteer peer-mentor program in which new international students are matched with continuing Perdana University students who can provide ongoing advice and information about life at the university and in Kuala Lumpur.

 

Mentors volunteer to provide ongoing social support, assistance and guidance through one-on-one meetings and social activities (coffee meetings, inhouse games, study sessions, etc.) throughout the new international student’s first semester.They share their personal experiences, easing the transition to university in Malaysia for new international students.

Mentors will have an opportunity to gain mentoring and leadership skills in a cross‐cultural environment, learn about other cultures and countries, as well as gain insight into Malaysian culture.

The University is dedicated to ensuring that all students have equal access to learning.
