NIBONG TEBAL, 6th September 2017 – USM’s world class facilities for teaching and learning seem to contribute as a deciding factor for many aspiring international students worldwide.

For Areeg Yasser, 19, USM’s commitment in enhancing its quality of excellence has been a primary factor which led him to register as an international student all the way from Egypt.
“USM’s research university status without a doubt has driven me to proudly be a part of USM’s family. It boosts my confidence to excel further in my studies too,” he explained.
USM is the first local public university to be awarded the APEX status or Accelerated Program of Excellence and recognized as a research driven university too.
