September marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadhan for the Muslims, and the ushering in of the celebration of Hari Raya Puasa. Many Malaysians will be taking the opportunity of this long holiday to travel the length of the peninsula to visit friends and families. Then, on 16th September, it is another day for Malaysians to rejoice - being Malaysia Day. In KDU College, another day to look forward to is Graduation Day which falls on 25th September. With so many occasions to celebrate, it is indeed a month of joyfulness.

For many students, it has been a sigh of relief too, as they have completed the tough years of the GCE A-Levels or the SPM examinations. If you have not yet decided on your future course of studies, you may want to know more about pursuing either the Law, Business or Engineering programmes which offer you a British university degree. Start off at KDU College where People Inspire People, and we want to inspire you to achieve a wonderful career.
