DECEMBER OPEN DAY


Kuala Lumpur, 10 December 2003 - The focus will largely be educational in focus for the coming UCSI Open Day at University College Sedaya International in Taman Segar, Cheras this December 20-21.
According to its Vice President of Corporate Affairs, Chin Peng Kit, the Open Day aims at giving exposure to students, especially those who were not selected for the National Service recently, to enable them to think about their career options.

“We believe this is a very suitable time just before our semester begins on December 28,” he said. “Students will need to make a decision, and we have attractive incentives to offer if they enroll on our Open Day.”

Dr Nafsiah Shamsudin, the head of the School of Nursing, will also be giving a talk on the "Bachelor of Nursing Programme: Developing Nurses and Nursing Through Education" on Saturday December 20 2003 at 11am. “We know that there is a shortage of nurses in the country,” she said. “Nursing is a profession, which many young people have yet to discover its potential.”

Dr Nafsiah, who is a reputable nurse academician in the country, said that registered nurses throughout the country are also invited to the nursing preview. With the approval obtained from the Ministry of Education, UCSI will launch its Bachelor of Nursing (Honours) soon.

Students who enroll for any degree,diploma and foundation programme at UCSI will have the opportunity to purchase a Hewlett-Packard(HP) laptop computer at RM1,700. “We are a wireless campus,” said Chin. “With this, we encourage our students to own their own laptop at an affordable price.”
