On the 5th of October 2016, the Student Association Executives had the honor of welcoming four representatives from the University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) to our university. UoRM is the first overseas campus of the University of Reading in the UK, located in Johor.

Reading U Visit1

The purpose of this visit was to learn about the Student Association and understand how each Executive plays a role in the university. With UoRM’s growing student population, the institution is interested in starting their very own student union. During our meeting, we discussed about past experiences, successes and failures, and the challenges executives are usually met with while being part of the SA.

Reading U Visit2

Not only did we exchange notes on the roles of the SA staff members and executives, we also had the opportunity to bring the UoRM representatives for a short campus tour and ending the day with late lunch at Secret Recipe. (pictures) We hope the representatives of UoRM had a pleasant visit to our university, despite the 4-hour long drive to and fro Johor and Semenyih. Here is to University of Reading Malaysia and their endeavor of establishing a successful student association!
