University of Nottingham students graduate



More than 250 University of Nottingham Malaysia students from the Faculty of Science and Engineering and Faculty of Arts and Social Science graduated on 23 February 2019.

According to University of Nottingham Malaysia’s Director of Academic Services, Patrick Joseph: “Graduation is a very special event as it sums the success of the student’s journey at the university, and it is enjoyed with members of the faculty, family and friends.”
At the graduation ceremony, graduates Nabil Nasran Nazri and Sim Hant Nhing also delivered a speech at their respective graduation ceremony. Nasran graduated from a degree in Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience and Hant Nhing graduated in Mechanical Engineering respectively.

“One of the best decisions I have made was to enrol in University of Nottingham Malaysia. Little did I know then, that this decision will open doors for opportunities of growth and self-development,” said Nasran while addressing the class of February 2019.

“We are all blessed with amazing individuals who have helped us along the way; our parents and our lecturers.

I also wish to thank the late Ms Amy Han from the Sponsorship Unit, who gave me the opportunity to attend education fairs. While I was studying, I volunteered with the sponsorship unit so that I can share my experience with potential students.” Nasran explained,

Meanwhile, in his speech Hant Nhing encouraged his peers, “What lies ahead of us now is a vast sea of constant changes, and we have to keep our chins up and always be on our toes to stay afloat. But this also give us an opportunity to push ourselves out of our comfort zones,to rise above and to never settle.

Go out and try something new, you will never know what you will stumble upon. So as the sayings goes, if you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room. I am proud to say that none of us have ever been in the wrong lecture room throughout our four years at university, because the smartest ones in the room have always been our lecturers.”

Nasran and Hant Nhing had started working even before they graduated. They current work with Early Autism Project and Gamuda, respectively.
