UUM ONLINE: The quality of postgraduate students of the University qualified UUM to achieve 4 Stars in the Malaysian Research Assessment (MyRA) for 2016.

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Dato' Seri Dr. Mohamed Mustafa Ishak said, according to the review of the MyRA panel, UUM's achievement in terms of quantity and postgraduate quality was outstanding.

However, the review also revealed that the proportion of PhD students graduating in the academic year was still low compared to the number of active academic staff.

"Nonetheless, large number of students enrolling in UUM have good entrance qualification with a CGPA of more than or equal to 3.0 or equivalent.

"This factor is one of the strengths of UUM which enables it to achieve 4 Stars in MyRA 2016," he said.

UUM obtained the overall score after a site assessment of 60.68 per cent where Section D (Quantity and Postgraduate Quality) contributed to the score after the highest site assessment of 25.72 exceeded the benchmark given at 15.00.
