I am a current PhD student with OUM for the last few years and the support and services they provide is atrocious. First they lost my assignment, next they switch me from "with classes" to "online mode" where there is utterly no support whatsoever, then they conduct a PhD colloquium so that we can hear the so-call Professors extol themselves and their sob stories, any enquiries are promptly ignored and I was conveniently omitted from notification of pending classes and my complaints are met with a decision that I should not have being accepted for enrolment for the PhD in Education??? Maybe its because I a Sarawakian, a chinese or is it something deeply wrong with OUM administration???
