What Our Alumni Say
What real people think about our university.
Dr Ooi Lai Yee
"It was a long journey. I spent eight years completing my study. I have doubted myself so many times and did not think that I would make it, but determination is the key to success! This latest achievement has taken my career to the next level, as with the knowledge that I have gained, I have been given the opportunity to head a private school. I want to express my warm and deep appreciation to my supervisors, lecturers and others who have given me their faithful support, inspiration, and guidance." Doctor of Education
Siti Rahimah Ramli
“ The programme is relevant to my career and I have been able to put the knowledge that I have gained into practice. It has definitely enhanced my skills and helped me improve my work performance. I chose OUM because of its flexible approach. My busy routine at work was not interrupted as classes were held on weekends. What’s more, it is so easy to communicate with lecturers and peers via the online platform. – Master of Occupational Safety and Health Risk Management”

Taufiq Hidayat Mohamad
“ I chose OUM because of the flexibility it offers to working adults like me and the fees are affordable too. Studying for the Bachelor of Psychology programme has played a great role in helping me deal with and understand people better. It is very valuable especially for managing and coping with emotions and stress in life and at work. – Bachelor of Psychology ”
Dr Muzafar Mat Yusof
“I chose to continue studying to improve my competence in a field that is relevant to my career. I realised that I needed to consistently practise what I have learnt as I have a huge responsibility at work. Thanks to OUM for giving me the opportunity to make my dreams come true. The flexible learning approach and latest technology tools and infrastructure are very helpful in learning.”- Doctor of Education
Lim Chin Kang
“I find the programme comprehensive as it addresses various aspects of OSH that I could implement at the workplace. The lecturers, too, are very supportive as they make the effort to explore relevant areas beyond the syllabus. For me, MOSHRM is about learning how to apply what I learn. I am confident if I were to pursue my PhD, the knowledge that I acquired from this programme will play a huge part in my success. ” – Master of Occupational Safety and Health Risk Management
