Assalammualaikum... I've been receiving some questions coming from my email and fb's private message regarding furthering the study in Diploma of Teaching English as a Second Language at Kolej Poly-Tech Mara Kuala Lumpur (KUPTM KL). I just noticed that the newest intake would be registering on 13th May while the UPU result would only be released a day after the registration day so I know that my future juniors (cewahhh) would be in dilemma.. So hereby, I'd list out the similar questions that I've been receiving and hopefully, this entry could help you in making the decisions.. 😇 *this emoji cuz i'm feeling like an angel right now..*
|Excuse those unpaid models and I just realized we've only taken pictures at this area once so there's not much of choice left..|
Friendly reminder: The questions would be in Malay but I'd be answering it in English since I'm used to this language when in comes to blogging..😅
1. Macam mana persekitaran pembelajaran dekat situ.. Ok atau tak..?
Well, this is the most basic question that I've been receiving.. To be honest, if you're looking for a decent learning atmosphere, without the hustle and bustle of the city, then KUPTM ain't a place for you guys since it's almost right in the middle of the city, but to be frank, this is the most suitable environment for you to be bold and speak English confidently..
But one thing to remind you, our campus ain't as big as the famous university but at least, they had their own building for you to be proud of..

2. Macam mana dengan kemudahan dia..?
If you're wondering about the food expenses, there's a cafe inside the campus building, with quite reasonable price. Besides that, there're lots of mini stalls surrounding the outside gates of the campus, and the good news is, some stalls provides food packages with reasonable price.. So, worry not about your hunger.. 😉
Since one of the conditions provided is to stay in their "hostel" for at least 2 semester, you must be wondering how the hostel would look like. Well, you could put a smile now as KUPTM provides either a condominum or apartment for you.. But,I'd love to inform you that you would be staying with 14-15 person in a house. This might horrify you for a while but trust me, slowly you'd just miss the memories when you're out of the hostel.. And hey, on a bright sight, you already have 15 friends before the class started.. How cool is that..? 😆
Transportation? our campus is located right across LRT Pandan Jaya so you could always walk there using the pedestrian bridge provided or if you're lazy, just grab an Uber or Grab.. Both of them are my main transportation now..😜
3. Macam mana dengan peluang nak sambung degree nanti..? Boleh ke nak sambung di IPTA..?
Actually, you could always pursue your degree in other ipta/ipts but KUPTM provided a better offer for their teslian student.. I'm not really sure either 1 and a half year or a maximum of 2 years for BACHELOR OF ARTS (HONS) IN APPLIED ENGLISH LANGUAGE STUDIES, but one thing for sure, it might not take 3 years for you to achieve your degree, if you manage to cope with it, of course.. 😅
One of the reason I choose KPTM (their name before upgraded) was because they do provide MARA as an alternative of the PTPTN but of course, with a few important alert: "C" at least for your SPM Mathematics and as usual, the amount that you'd receive is based on your parents' income.. 😁4. Macam mana pulak dengan pinjaman..? Ada MARA tak..?
That was all the common questions that I've been receiving so far and if you've any other questions that are not listed, feel free to drop down your comment here or contact me via email or social sites that I've provided.. 😀
