Dear Students,

The New Year 2021 have dawned upon us with further worrisome turn of events as Malaysia faces spikes in Covid-19 cases bringing daily record to four-digit. The rapid spread of the virus across our community and states is unfortunate and together, we must bear the responsibility of taking the necessary measures to flatten the curve once again.

As the Malaysia authority has recently announced that Movement Control Orders (MCO) has been extended to several states including Johor, Kuala Lumpur, Penang, and Selangor; other states will remain under the Conditional Movement Control Orders (CMCO) from 29 th April to 17 th May 2021.

In view of this critical situation which first begins in March 2020, City U has made announcements that all classes have been switched to online-virtual class through our Learning Management System (LMS). Kindly be advised that there are no changes at this moment and all students are advice to continually and actively participate in all your virtual classrooms by engaging daily and weekly with your professors and lecturers.

Once the situation improves and should City U re-opens, it is likely that it will be done in stages. Currently only critical programs with courses needing practical aspects may be allowed and delivered on-campus. As for the rest of the programs and courses, City U will continue to deliver the lessons via online methods for the rest of the semester. Therefore, once the university reopens in stages, City U will inform you well in advance for you to make preparations to return to the university. Until then, all students are well advised that – you are not to make any travelling plans back to the university or hostel.

For the international student, you are advice to keep contact with our Education Counsellor in International Management Office ([email protected]); while for matters related to student visa, kindly please do contact the Visa Unit ([email protected]).

We wish you all the best in your studies; do stay safe and be vigilant at all times. Your kind and immediate attention to this matter is very much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

City University Malaysia
