KUCHING: Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus’ pilot batch of English Enhancement Programme (EEP) students took time out to visit the Borneo Cultures Museum here recently.
The students had the opportunity to hop on the hydrogen bus for a city tour, enjoying the sights of the city followed by exploring various galleries of the museum.
Immanuel Martin, one of the students enrolled in the EEP, described the trip as fun, engaging and exciting.
“We learned a lot during our visit to the Borneo Cultures Museum. There were some things that we didn’t quite understand, but the lecturers and staff who accompanied us were very helpful in providing explanations,” he said.
Also joining the activities was the Acting Assistant Director under the Programmes and Assistance Section of Yayasan Sarawak, Mahathir Mohammad.
Swinburne Sarawak’s first batch of EEP students kicked off the programme on Aug 1.
This special four-week programme is fully sponsored by Yayasan Sarawak and it is open to all Sarawakian students who meet the entry criteria.
The programme – which acts as a pathway from SPM, STPM, or equivalent qualification to a foundation, diploma, or degree programme – is designed to develop students’ English language proficiency in preparation for their university journey.
Students will have the opportunity to enhance their skills in speaking, reading, writing, listening, understanding, critical thinking and communication.
Aside from paying zero tuition fees for the EEP, students are also provided with accommodation, living allowance and one-off relocation assistance.
As the programme is carried out at the university’s campus in Kuching, students will be able to get a taste of life as Swinburne Sarawak students.
Those who enrol in the EEP are eligible to continue their studies at foundation, diploma, or degree levels at Swinburne Sarawak.
