PG Orientation to Guide Postgraduate Students in their New Journey at XMUM


The Postgraduate Student Council (PGSC) hosted the Postgraduate Orientation Day on 30 March 2024 at the Postgraduate Lounge (A2-113). The purpose of the event was to cordially greet new XMUM postgraduate students, as well as encourage interaction between these students and their fellow peers from different schools and departments. They were treated with food vouchers upon registration which were sponsored by Zone U Bakery and Zone U Penang Flavor.

Mr. Joel Foo Jie, the President of PGSC, presided over the orientation by delivering a welcoming speech. He emphasised the contributions of PGSC in improving the experiences of postgraduate students, with a particular focus on providing academic assistance, facilitating professional growth and ensuring well-being. After the introduction of PGSC, a campus tour was organised to acquaint new students with the educational and recreational facilities in XMUM. Ms. Ooi Khim May, the Vice President of PGSC, delivered a comprehensive presentation to the new students on the available facilities of XMUM.

After the briefing sessions, ice-breaking and bonding games were organised to encourage interaction among the students. All participants were then treated with a lunch break sponsored by Sapid. This session gave attendees the chance to relax and engage in networking.  Mr. Joel Foo Jie delivered a closing statement, emphasising the commitment by PGSC in enhancing student life environment and expressing hope that students can look forward to the next PGSC event.
