Just want to tell you good news! =)

[for illustration purpose only! =p]

Confirmed: IPTAs change to Summer Break Academic Term - Four Months Semester Break in 2011

Rumour has it that all Malaysia local public universities (IPTA such as UM, USM, UKM, UPM [*USIM too]...) will follow the summer break semester system from the next intake (2011/2012) onwards. Tracing the origin of the rumour, which has been circulating for a few months now, often reaches lecturers or officials as the sources. Neither Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) has announced this officially nor do any of the IPTA.

Nonetheless, with the announcement of important dates for next IPTA intake (2011/2012), which is September 3 and 4, 2011 (register on Saturday or Sunday depending which state the university located), it is safe now to say that this has been confirmed. Not all local public universities have updated their academic calendar to reflect this new change, but a few efficient ones like University Utara Malaysia (UUM) and University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) have updated theirs. [USIM has updated!]

Please take note that first year students will need to attend an one week orientation, which is the reason why their intake registration day is September 3 (Saturday) or 4 (Sunday) [okayy! no need to join the taaruf week anymore! =)], 2011 while second year and above will commence their new academic year on September 11 (Sunday) or 12 (Monday), 2011. Also, depending on your IPTA, you will enjoy “summer break” between 15 to 17 weeks!

Note that this unbelievably long (four weeks!) semester break will only happen in 2011, as the current semester system is adjusting to the newly implemented one for the first time. From that onwards, the first semester break in January/February will last for four weeks (one month) and in July till September for 12 weeks (approximately three months).

It is believed that this reason for this change is to attract more international students to further their studies here. By changing the tertiary semester system to be more aligned with the international academic term, it will make local public universities more appealing to international students. [owh. there will be more international students here. can we, at USIM? it will become more interesting if they can join us at USIM! ;)]

Now, any ideas how will you spend the coming 15 to 17 weeks “summer break”? Internship, part-time, travel, activities, holiday courses? Read our suggestion on how to spend your school holiday wisely.
