SERU Explorace 2013
University of Malaya Soft Skills & Employability Skills Programme (UMAST-go!) UMAST-go! was scheduled to start in September and complete by December 2012. However, following a decision by the Steering Committee during a mid-way review, it was temporarily halted effective 02 November 2012 due to poor students’ turnouts. The initial pilot run which started on 19 September 2012 till 20 October 2012 received seventy (70) students from the total expected five hundred and forty (540). UMAST-go! was then resumed on 19 – 26 January 2013; during the first semester break i.e. taking into account that students will be free from lectures. The turnout was hundred and ninety eight (198) students only of which more than 85% are the First Year and the rest were Second, Third and Final Year students.
