(1) I hear aswara is only 20% non-bumi but that was from a while ago. I know it's a public uni, but is it really still that homogeneous there today? I'm non-bumi, I might be worrying more than I should be but will I feel visibly excluded?

(2) I have no doubts about the quality of aswara's education/graduates/facilities, but whats the student life there like if anyone knows? They don't have anything on their official website that might tell me, and their social medias are pretty stale.

(3) What languages are the courses taught in? I'm considering doing a foundation + then 3-year degree in creative writing there. If medium of instruction varies course to course, does anyone know what languages these two courses in particular are taught in? BM or English?

Would really appreciate if anyone could give some insight, thanks!

Apologies - did not read it thoroughly.

My thoughts? I would not go to ASWARA for creative writing. The only thing i would recommend ASWARA for is performing arts and music composition.

I don't think very highly of their other programmes there as i have met some of their people and i was not too impressed. I would say that they are lower mid-tier when it comes to other areas.

But that's just my feel.
