Admission Arrival

Step 1
Orientation

Students may transfer directly from the KLIA/LCCT/Subang Airport to Kuala Terengganu, without stopping at the KL Campus for visa processing, documentation and orientation briefing. All these can be completed in the Terengganu Campus.

Upon arrival, students must report to the Student Enrolment Centre (SEC), located on Ground Floor, the next working day at 9:00 a.m. Students must undergo medical screening at the Qualitas Clinic in Kuala Terengganu within seven working days upon arrival or before the Visa Approval Letter expires (whichever is earlier). Please meet our SEC staff for transportation arrangements.

Students are required to settle the necessary payment due before the Course Selection and the commencement of classes. A student ambassador or Student Affairs & Alumni staff will assist new students in opening a bank account.

During the orientation, students will be briefed on UCSI University, Terengganu Campus’ rules & regulations, English Placement Test schedule, and Course Selection procedure. Attendance to this orientation is COMPULSORY. The University encourages students to report themselves to SEC as soon as possible, the latest being on the Orientation day, in order to induct and familiarise themselves with the culture and practice of the University. The Orientation is also when seniors and lecturers are available to share their knowledge or experience and mentor new students accordingly. If a student misses the Orientation due to unforeseen circumstances, the Student Affairs & Alumni staff would be responsible to orientate the student accordingly. This is to ensure all students are briefed on the necessary processes and procedures.
