To learn, is to do. To do, is to practice. To practice, is to rehearse the roles and responsibility of the chosen profession.

That in a nutshell, is BERJAYA UCH’s Immersion Methodology – a unique teaching paradigm that places you in the heart of the action. Your “classrooms” are often simulation laboratories which mirror what you would practically encounter while on the job.

We do this because of BERJAYA UCH’s firm convictions in:

  • Educating students based on the industry’s current requirements and structure
  • Exposing students to the working world by implementing 20-24 weeks of work placement
  • Enlightening students perception about the industry by inviting Industry Leaders and Celebrities to share their professional experiences
