Are you still around? your last post was in 2011...
By now you should have graduated already.
Share your experience be it good or bad.
Hi, I can't believe that this thread is still alive lol.
I am the 1st batch graduated student from USM-KLE and currently working in HTJS.
I'm so sorry but I'm not so much a writer, so maybe my writings is not in a very well composure to truly answer your question.
Overall, it was unregreatable moment in my life when I was asking from you guys opinion regarding my option before. It is totally a great experience to complete my study there.
At 1st, my batch was pioneered by only 48 students (with a max quota of 100 students) per batch. Initially, USM unable to get a proper hostel and we need to liaise with the local
university in Belgaum. However, when I was in 3rd-year, USM already get their own land and build our own hostel compound with shared facilities like futsal/ basketball court and swimming pool for sports.
We also able to strengthen our bond with MARA, and now most of us in USM-KLE was MARA sponsored. As for the university facilities for study medicine, it was as good as USM Kubang Kerian I guess,
but we do have a very big language barrier when trying to communicate as India have 40++ different languages and that does not even include slangs. Even the local medical officer there also
sometimes find it difficult to communicate but however, we do have several basic language classes to master basic questions.
As for curriculum-wise, it is totally the same and adopted from USM Kubang Kerian, the syllabus, the exam and etc will always be the same with the USM local, even timing of exam
will be adjusted in between both universities to ensure no cheating in an exam. Plus, the holiday that us in India get is even more, if Malaysia has PH, USM-KLE will be close
and if India has their PH, the university will be closed too. So we get more holidays in honoring both countries as the students are from Malaysia and all lecturers are from India.
We do have a bikers club in our university and we did travel to a lot of places. The people in India do indeed see us as "god" sometimes because those people that came to the hospital
mostly poor people and them indeed in need of help. Currently, USM already our own hospital for study clinical, our own patients and hospital staffs.
There was a lot I want to talk about since I was reminiscing back the moment when I needed to make my choice and asking opinion in this group. In general, it was the
best choice I made in my life, yet.
p/s: Do PM me if you need more information or you have more inquiry, hopefully, I can be at my best to provide you answers. https://www.thebelgaumnews.com/2018/03/23/m...good-samaritan/
