Ever wonder how it's like to be studying in one of the most prestigious universities in the world? This year, Cambridge University Malaysia Society (CUMaS) is organising Outreach events across the country to inspire talented young Malaysians to study in University of Cambridge.
Current Cambridge students will be giving an intimate, first-hand insight of the Cambridge experience - from the application process to matriculation and the excitement that lies ahead. Through this event, we hope to offer advice on issues plaguing prospective applicants, ranging from the availability of funding opportunities to the subjects Cambridge has to offer. Attendees will also be given a chance to raise their concerns to our panel of students.
All in all, we seek to expose attendees to the Cambridge experience from the perspective of our current students, thereby encouraging prospective applicants to take that leap of faith to realize their potential, both for themselves and for the nation.
For potential applicants who are interested, we will also be conducting mock interviews through Skype so that you may experience the Cambridge interview process and be more confident in yourself.
The details for the Outreach in Kuala Lumpur are as follows:
Date: 23 July 2016
Time: 2pm - 4pm
Venue: JC1, Sunway University

This is an important message from the Vice-Chancellor on the referendum result. It follows the communication that was sent to staff on the morning of 24th June.
We recognise that there is a great deal of uncertainty around the decision to leave the European Union. We would like to reassure our staff that a University working group has met this afternoon following the referendum result and various work streams are underway looking at staff, students, post docs, partnerships and nationality issues. I would like to stress again that, even though the result is in favour of leaving the European Union, there is no immediate change to the University's teaching, research and other activities. We will continue to work as normal.
It is not currently known what the impact of leaving the EU will have on UK policy on higher education tuition fees, loans and bursaries. However, the University can confirm that undergraduate EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, who have an offer to study at Cambridge, or who apply in 2016 to start their studies in 2017, will continue to be charged the UK fee rate applicable at the time, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law. Please note that the UK fee rate may be subject to increases, which may be annual.
The University will work with the Government to ensure it takes steps to ensure that staff and students from the EU can continue to work and study in this country. Cambridge thrives as part of a wide international community of academic staff and students, and we remain deeply committed to global cooperation and our dedicated staff who come from all over the world.
As I said this morning, there is work underway to consider how best to communicate internal developments with specific members of the University. Further information will be available next week on the University's website.
You may also be interested to read University UK's latest statement on the referendum result:
"Leaving the EU will create significant challenges for universities. Although this is not an outcome that we wished or campaigned for, we respect the decision of the UK electorate. We should remember that leaving the EU will not happen overnight, there will be a gradual exit process with significant opportunities to seek assurances and influence future policy.
"Throughout the transition period our focus will be on securing support that allows our universities to continue to be global in their outlook, internationally networked and an attractive destination for talented people from across Europe. These features are central to ensuring that British universities continue to be the best in the world.
"Our first priority will be to convince the UK Government to takes steps to ensure that staff and students from EU countries can continue to work and study at British universities and to promote the UK as a welcoming destination for the brightest and best minds. They make a powerful contribution to university research and teaching and have a positive impact on the British economy and society. We will also prioritise securing opportunities for our researchers and students to access vital pan-European programmes and build new global networks."
