Comments on: "Orientation & Familiarisation Programme for New Postgraduate Students Semester II, 10/11" (6)

  1. I need information, when will the application date of postgrade USM open? for july intake. thank you

    • Dear Febri,

      Application for mixed mode/coursework programmes will open somewhere in February, however, do look out for the advert that will come up somewhere in january, or check out website from time to time.

      However, for research mode, application is open throughout the year. You can apply online at the website address given.

      Best regards

  2. Is that the orientation open to mixed mode and coursework programmes only? The registration guideline for research mode is do not have orientation, so research mode student can attend the orientation or not?

  3. Does the aplication date condut for all candidate, or just for malaysian?

    If i want to apply post graduate programm, but i haven’t get minimum toefl score yet. Just around 500-520. So, could I still apply?

    Then, about financial support.

    when will the the application of USM fellowship or graduate assistant scheme for the first semester 2011/2012 open?

    Is USM fellowship required for mix mode program candidate?

    Sorry if I ask too much. I graduated from University of Indonesia few months ago and I am eager to be postgraduate student of USM. Hope you can give all that information. thank you

    • Dear Febri,

      No problem. It would be better if you retook your toefl to achieve the required score as there may be a chance that the school you applied to will reject you due to that.

      Also, applications are open to all students regardless of nationality.

      You can only apply for fellowship if you are a registered student of USM, notice for application will be put up on the Ips website soon.

      Best Regards
