Graduated with Diploma in Public Relations 

(CGPA 3.9244, Book Prize Award)

“People always say that “it is easy to get good grades in TAR UC compared to other universities”. In a particular way, I would agree to this. However, it is not because the syllabus is easy or the standard of TAR UC is low, but rather good grades are achievable because of the lecturers who continuously give support and guidance to the students. Please don’t get me wrong, the good results did not come to me easily as I have also put a lot of effort into making it happen. Nothing great comes easy if you do not put-in the effort. Besides the helpful lecturers, it was such a blessing to study with a bunch of course mates that are humorous yet attentive. The campus compound and the cheerful environment had given me so much memorable fun throughout the two years time I spent in TAR UC. With these, I am convinced that choosing TAR UC is a decision that I would never regret. ”
