They received the laptops from IIUM President, Datuk Dr. Mohd Daud Bakar, during the first session of online Ta’aruf Week for Semester 1, 2020/2021, held at IIUM Cultural Centre (ICC) yesterday, which was attended by the Rector, Prof. Emeritus Tan Sri Dato’ Dzulkifli Abdul Razak.

The presentation of the laptops was intended to assist students from B40 group who are facing financial difficulties in continuing their studies for the new semester which begins right after the Ta’aruf Week.

The students were chosen based on the list of names received during the movement control order (MCO) period. The selection process covered various aspects which included parent’s household income, and priority is given to students who do not own any laptop or the laptop is damaged.

Meanwhile, IIUM received around 3,500 students for its new intake which included both direct intake and from IIUM’s Centre for Foundation Studies (CFSIIUM).

All students have registered for their Mahallah (hostel) and collected their Ta’aruf kits for the Ta’aruf Week, from 29 September until 4 October, by following all the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the government to avoid any inconveniences during registration session.***
