How is the academic life at this university/college? The academic life in my law program at least, is fairly busy. I am pleased to say however, that their focus is not solely on getting students and making a profit - they ensure that we understand the values that law students must understand and incorporate. Academically, opportunities are aplenty to immerse yourself in all things law. The lecturers are very helpful and every intake has a Year Tutor whom plays the role of a mentor. Aside co-curricular activities within the program, their academic standards are high - to do well, you have to work for it. This is particularly necessary since it is a UK Transfer Program and the students must be able to cope overseas. What are the students like? Students vary according to the program they are enrolled in, but are overall Okay. What do students do when not studying? Tell us about the social and sports life. Unfortunately, the campus in Wisma Help is a poor facility for students to do much. Students don't mingle with each other because there is no actual place for them to hang out, aside the Level 5 DSA which is a closed space. For a Students Activities' Room, the interior is plain and it only has a pool table and a foosball table. Even in the law department, other intakes don't know each other as everyone just walks into class and out. Since the buildings are scattered all over, to sign up for activities, students have to go to the ELM building to find out more about co-curricular and club activities. There is no Student Center where students can chill or find out more about clubs or interact with other kids. I have seen more engagement in other colleges and universities. Otherwise, socially students move in groups to eateries and hang out wherever they can. What is your overall opinion about this university/college? Academically, Help University is a great place to LEARN. However, because the buildings are scattered and there is no actual campus per se, it is simply tiresome to have to commute to the ELM building to pay fees and other registration chore as well as to find out about activities as mentioned above. I think that is its greatest weakness - the lack of a physical campus where students have a place to call their own for their activities instead of booking lecture rooms and squatting in between their classes in any empty classrooms. However, don't get me wrong - it's promising and lecturers are GREAT, but Help simply can't compete with other universities that offer a multitude of facilities to their students. Parking is the other one thing that students dread. Since our buildings are scattered, parking is provided in the abandoned Wisma Damansara at a cost of RM10 per day. Not to mention the distance uphill that students still have to walk to get to their respective buildings. Their parking facility is poor although there aren't many other options since as I have said, they are scattered buildings.
