About Us

The General Studies Department consists of four sections / units: Pendidikan Islam; Pengajian Melayu Islam Beraja, Language and Communication; and Mathematics. These sections / units  ensure that the modules taught not only have applicability in the development of study skills and employability skills, but also in the development of self (becoming righteous and responsible being).

 

The General Studies Department modules are designed to allow students the opportunity to strengthen core skills necessary to advance in their diploma programmes. These modules also aim to enhance and improve each student's skills of acquisition, mastery and applications to humanity and to promote nation building spirit through consolidating the skills taught, broadening knowledge gained and acquiring & learning from experiences throughout the semester(s).
