Malaysia: Unisel among nation’s top universities

University SelangorUniversity Selangor (Unisel) has improved its performance in recent years and is among the country’s top universities, according to state executive councillor Dr Halimah Ali. The exco for higher education was responding to claims by the state opposition that Unisel is now the least preferred university by students and is on the decline.

“Unisel is rated by the MQA (Malaysian Qualifications Agency), an independent organisation, at Tier 4, a ‘very good’ rating,” said Dr Halimah.

Unisel is grouped in the category with the likes of Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR), Universiti Malaya (UM)’s state branches, Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (Unirazak), Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) and others. She said Unisel’s achievements are not limited to Malaysia alone as the university is also recognised by various foreign institutes of higher education.

The Selat Kelang assemblyperson then furnished newspaper clippings of various awards and achievements from the mainstream press such as New Sunday Times, Harian Metro and Berita Mingguan as proof. A few minutes into her presentation, Jeram state assemblyman Datuk Amiruddin Setro challenged Halimah to show more concrete proof instead of just newspaper clippings.

“If we show statistics from Unisel, BN will accuse us of cherry-picking statistics. So we are showing information from your mainstream press, this is proof,” she retorted.

She then continued with other newspaper clippings of Unisel’s achievements, which included the invention of a new model of satellites by a Unisel student.
