This must have something to do with the previously debated impression of "Malaysian IPTs produce less productive PhDs"... Sigh, and the (presumably)credible ones have to, hence, resort to blog advertising to get credible responses.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought only Bumiputras are admitted to UiTM so what is the point advertising this notice when most of us readers here are non-Bumiputras???

It seems rumours that one public university is giving very little time for chinese students to go for they chinese new year. Could it be a sabotage to make sure the chinese dont hv time to study for their exams...

I don't want to get a PhD degree at a university that grant Datin Seri Rosmah a honorary PhD. It shows the lack of considerations among the educators inside the university.

Dear Sir,

The PhD degree is reserved for the Malays

Non-Malays need not apply

Kulitfication at its fullest

One more example of why M'sia is sinking

How do you know that most of the readers here are non bumis? I am a bumiputera and i believe that this blog is followed closely by a lot of bumiputras as well. I'm sure the Government also take into consideration the comments and articles published here.
