Sunway College AUSMAT Student Inspired by His Teachers and Peers

“The lecturers here are amazing. For you to fully grasp the subjects, they patiently guide you and teach you,” says eighteen year old William Khoo, who enrolled in the AUSMAT programme in January this year. The former student of SMK Seafield finds AUSMAT generally a fun and fast paced programme.

He finds the scope of study and the environment most interesting, “The way we are taught during class is different compared to secondary school. Here in AUSMAT, we are taught to think outside the box and apply that to our studies.” “This year has definitely shaped me to be a more independent and disciplined individual. I owe this to my time here in the AUSMAT programme. I am constantly surrounded by peers who know how to play as hard as they study. This gives me the motivation and drive to do the same. I have learned about my individual flaws and learnt to improve mistakes, taking each failure as a lesson.”

Elected President of the AUSMAT Student Council in February, William recently paid tribute to his teachers at the AUSMAT Teaching Appreciation Day.

“My time in the A-level has provided me the opportunity to become a more matured person in the sense that I am able to comprehend complex problems through a systematic thought process which was inculcated into the programme. The friends and teachers I met during my A-levels will always be an important part of my life, even though we have taken on different paths in life” said Janesh Nathan, who completed his A-Level at Sunway College.

A recipient of the Gamuda Scholarship Award 2015, Janesh is currently in his first year at Monash University Malaysia pursuing his 3-year Bachelors of Commerce (Accounting).
