Bachelor in Hospitality Management (Honours), Department of Hospitality Management, TAR UC (2017)
My journey at TAR UC was full of fun, opportunities and learning. I gained tremendously in terms of knowledge and friendship, as well as developing a positive mindset and behaviour. In Year One, I was exposed to the hospitality industry. All the courses that I had taken provided me the foundation that I needed to study about hospitality management. Visits and excursions to hotels in Malaysia broadened my horizons. I particularly remember the hotel visit to Malacca with my lecturers who were both inspiring and jovial. They gave the students a lot of motivation to pursue this programme. In Year Two, the courses that I had taken provided me a more detailed knowledge regarding hospitality management. What caught my interest was the F&B course. It was fun and fruitful as I got to know a variety of beverages and their history. The quote: ‘Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.’ perfectly describes the teamwork among my classmates in completing the restaurant coursework. Although we had our differences, we felt very satisfied and happy when we successfully ran the theme lunches together. In my final year, my relationship with my classmates and my coursemates became much better. We completed the team building event successfully and learnt a lot of things from each other. We were very grateful to have each other to lean on. I have nothing but praises for all the lecturers who have taught me a lot, shared with me a lot of stories and knowledge and helped me when I faced difficulties in my journey to develop my skills at TAR UC.
