Intellectual Input
  • Intellectual input is implemented on the students via various courses conducted, which give a positive impaction the students. The academic values and input received by the students serve as a strong foundation, upon which, activities in and off campus are conducted. They should also be compatible in terms of :

Racial Unity

Peace and prosperity should be preserved at all times through racial unity and integration. University of Malaya is the best platform for students to practice and adopt racial unity in their everyday lives. Unity also persist at various levels of academic excellence, sport, culture, social and religious activities.

Responsibility and Social Sensitivities

Being socially responsible and sensitive to various needs, especially to University of Malaya’s needy and unfortunate students, remains the biggest challenge for students.

Internationalising Student Activities

Internationalisation is the government’s genuine aspiration to ensure universities provide the best exposure for students to improve their knowledge on global issues and culture and to learn about the education systems overseas. Besides, the students can also have a good network with foreign students to share and exchange ideas and information related to the academics and activities of student organizations.

It is necessary to create a sense of loyalty, patriotism and love for the country.  These values are inherited  from the thoughts of policy makers and government leadership, and from those remaining loyal to the country, race and nation. Such training is normally adopted from the modules prepared by the National Civic Bureau and several government  sectors and will be used  during training for the benefit of improving students' leadership, university's leadership and later, the nation’s leadership.
