When new students go to a college/university for the first time, they are confronted with a new environment which is different from their secondary school experience. This new environment may present challenges and anxiety which some students are not equipped to deal with on their own.
As such, at KDU Penang, we endeavor to make this transition as painless as possible for the new students, and at the same time, we attempt to bring out the best in them. This is achieved through the First-Year-Experience (FYE) initiative.
Through FYE, new students are gradually inducted into the new learning experience through a series of talks, workshops and effective peer-to-peer mentoring. Various talks and workshops are presented, with topics encompassing student motivation, study skills, time-management, research using internet, mind-mapping, citation/referencing, technology, and entrepreneurship.
