I absolutely am happy with my decision to my further studies in TARUC. From diploma to degree, even though TARUC is a highly reputable university college, they never cease to make improvements. The lecturers are very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Students will be asked to evaluate lecturer's performance and facilities in TARUC every end of semester. Moreover, Student Dialogue serves as a bridge between students and top menagement to make sure voices from students are heard. Students are given opportunities to organize events such as awareness campaigns, Obstacles Race, Prom Night, in which enhance students' skills and knowledge. TARUC environment is clean and full of plants, students' artworks are displayed at different areas in campus to create an interesting and harmonies atmosphere around campus. TARUC library is full of resources and updated information that help students in completing good quality of works. Therefore, I think TARUC is a good choice for studying as my college life is full of interesting events and challenges.

Pursuing Bachelor of Hospitality Management (Honours), Department of Hospitality Management, TAR UC



My name is Xiu Qing and I am studying Bachelor of Hospitality Management in TARUC. I am currently in my last semester and will be graduating in 2020. I have learnt a lot in the 3 years I have been here, from content-related knowledge to self-discovery and personal growth. The interesting thing about my time in college is that the focus is not just on the subjects taught or the knowledge learnt, but also on understanding the unlimited potential that one has. A huge shout-out to all the lecturers who have given tremendous effort in sharing their expertise and experience in their unique ways, thus making the learning process interesting and fun. “This is your second home”, a slogan that TARUC has always preached, is something that I couldn’t agree more. The kindness and care that I feel throughout the years I am in this campus is something I will cherish. Thank you TARUC for creating a high standard yet loving environment for us students to learn, study and enjoy. “The Possibilities are Endless”. Who knew that I would be given the chance to take part in the Worldskill Malaysia 2019 WSMB Cooking category. A huge thank you to Chef Azaludin Bin Tajudin, Kak Asidah Binti Abdullah Hassan, Chef Encik Asrul @ Mohd Asrul Bin Saari , Chef Nur Liana Binti Ahmad, Ms Martina Chua Swee Lin, and Chef Encik Muhammad Adib Bin Mohamed Ramly for guiding and supporting me throughout the training. I would also like to especially thank Chef Azaludin Bin Tajudin. Not only did he give me this opportunity to take part in this competition, but he also sacrificed his precious time and energy being my mentor for the competition. In the end, I was able to become one of the finalists and was the runner-up in the finals. I am very grateful to experience this as it was not only fun and memorable, but it also opened up a new path for me.

Sales Coordinator at SWAG Consultancy Sdn Bhd
Bachelor of Hospitality Management (Honours), Department of Hospitality Management, TAR UC



I had a lot of fun and sweet memories studying in TARUC because it gives me and my friends the unique experiences and challenges. Hospitality Management is a very interesting programme as it provides a lot of practical classes, which are my favorite. This is where we get to stay out of the class and away from theory. My friends and I always had fun during practical class because this is where we get to use our creativity to play around with the tools provided by TARUC especially classes such as kitchen and baking and pastry. In my early times in TARUC, I was a very shy student and will never expect that I will be involved in such big competition. But despite my personality, Ms Martina Chua Swee Lin still requested me to join this competition, Worldskill Belia 2018 under the category of restaurant service. Joining this competition gave me a big sense of accomplishment and made me feel like I’ve actually done something in my life. And joining this competition will be the highlight in the four years of studying in TARUC. So I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms Martina Chua Swee Lin, Encik Suhaimi Bin Abdullah not just for choosing me, but also the time, the money they have spent on us, to ensure that we are always full before and after the competition, the training they have provided and the overtime they did. I would like to thank to the people involved as well, the driver and kakak Cik Azhani Binti Kamaruzaman who prepared my equipment. And I’m glad that I’ve gone through the first round thanks to my mentor’s effort. Having the knowledge and skills that I have learned throughout the training actually help me create a career path and provide me the opportunity to work in a wine company.

The years of education at TARUC turned out to be much better than I had expected.

Wong Jih Xuan

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.

 
Emily Tay Wan-Ling

Bachelor of Arts (Honours) English with Education, Department of English Studies, TAR UC



In my years of being part of the Tunku Abdul Rahman University College community, I have gained nothing but memorable and exceptional learning experiences while studying and participating in the local community. The quality of education in TAR UC is truly exceptional as the courses are well-structured and lecturers would genuinely provide all kinds of learning resources to help us gain knowledge in different ways. Although there is not a doubt that studying English proves to be a challeging task that requires a lot of hard work, I am however, enjoying every bit of the struggle as I know that my lecturers and peers would be more than willing to guide me along the way to watch me succeed in life.
