Therefore, on behalf of Universiti Malaysia Terengganu, I would like to offer potential candidates to enhance and upgrade your knowledge at UMT. I am hoping you will enjoy browsing through the website by choosing your field of interest and finally make your decision to come to us to achieve your dreams. I borrow the words from Umar ibnu  Khattab (R.A) – “Acquire Knowledge before you become leaders and pride prevents you from learning and you live in ignorance. This is to engage you from lifelong learning for you to become good leaders and move away from ignorance.”

Finally, I wish you the very best and hoping you will continue to achieve excellence in your future endeavours.
