What Our Students Say

“It was the BERJAYA Immersion Methodology that convinced me to take up the courses here. The emphasis of “learning by doing” has moulded me to be an independent thinker. It is a unique feature that differentiates BERJAYA UC from other universities and university colleges. “

Rachel Tan Su Ping

Bachelor of Hospitality Management (Hons)
“Throughout the time I’ve spent in BERJAYA UC, I’ve gained priceless experiences, knowledge and skills. Thanks to BERJAYA UC and encouraging lecturers, I won 3rd place in the Nescafe Milano Coffee Championship 2013. The exposure and skills gained from joining competitions gave me confidence and the drive to succeed in all my undertakings.”

Stephanie S’ng Sze Yi

Diploma in Hotel Management
Beverage study was my favourite subject that has given me a platform and opportunity to take part in many competitions. My lecturers are also my mentors. Whenever we need guidance, they are always ready to give us advice based on theories and their own experiences as well. They are always supportive during competitions and our classes are conducted in a very interactive way. I enjoy practical classes the most as we get hands-on experiences and through this we learn much more than we can ever learn from just books and theories.”
