Quick recap

It has been 2 months since my last post (Wow!). Too many things happened in September. I quit my job, applied for a master degree, went to my mum’s hometown for my cousin’s engagement party (kenduri) and a few private things that I don’t want to disclose here.

Anyway, it has been hectic.

Storytime! I’m back as a student and why

The good news is, my postgraduate application get accepted so now I’m a master student who can enjoy the privileged of student discounts.

Okay, just kidding.

I decided to further my study because my language learning knowledge is pretty much non-existent and studying for postgraduate sounds great to study more on the subject.

And I also want to experience university life in Malaysia which sadly I couldn’t enjoy (sad) due to pandemic as all my classes for this semester is through online lectures.

Why I choose UiTM to pursue my master

  • Has course that I want (obviously)
  • Coursework mode
  • Classes on weekdays start from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM and on weekends which means I can work and do my master at the same time
  • Cheap (because self-sponsored)

Initially, I plan to pursue my master at either Universiti Malaya (UM) or Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) but UM doesn’t have a part-time mode for my course and the course that I wanted to apply for UKM is not available on weekend, which is a bit disappointing because I’m looking for a program where I could study either after work or on the weekend.

UiTM course fees

From my research, UiTM course fees are one of the cheapest options. For the social science course, coursework costs around RM6000 for the whole semester and for research, if I’m not mistaken, around RM4000.

Difference between coursework, research and mix-mode

Coursework

  • Need to attend class
  • Has quiz, assignments and exam (depends on the subjects you take)
  • No research just dissertation
  • Percentage to graduate on time (GOT) is high

Research

  • Costs cheaper than coursework
  • No class
  • Full mode research
  • Can take longer time if the data for your research is not enough

Mix-Mode

  • A combination of both coursework and research hence the name
  • Has research but not like full research
  • Also has quiz, assignments

From the start, research is already excluded from my choice because I have no idea what to research so coursework mode is the best for me. Not many universities offer a mix-mode for my course, in UM there’s Applied Linguistics which sounds exciting but too bad the class time is a no for me.

Anyway, if anyone is interested to know in details on how to apply for UiTM postgraduate programmes feel free to ask me.

Also, f you have any study tips or advice to share, please tell me in the comment below. *wink*

Wish me luck so I can graduate on time.

  1. Salam and hi Raysa. Thank you for sharing your master story. Sorry but can I ask you about the differences of these courses. Master in professional communication and master in language studies. Which one is yours and can you advice me which one should I take ? I graduated degree in English for Professional Communication at Uitm. And i’m still confuse on choosing between these two courses. Hoping for your reply and thank you in advance!

    1. Hi! If you like language more, I’d say go for language studies. Actually the two courses subjects banyak je relate cuma certain core subjects lain.
