SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah welcome its October 2017 New students.

Welcome to SIDMA College, UNITAR Sabah Regional Centre. Dr Morni Hj Kambrie (Chairman and Founder, SIDMA College) on behalf of Madam Azizah Khalid Merican (CEO), Managers, Heads of Departments as well as all members of the college; extend his word of welcome to all September 2017 semester newly registered students at SIDMA Atrium on 27 September 2017. Your Future starts here. All of us are committed in ensuring your studies here as one of the best experience of your life. We urged all of you to make the most of the numerous opportunities available at the college. You have chosen to be part of this very special community, and we are excited to have you joining us, he added.

Earlier, he congratulated all the new students for successfully going through their recent SPM or STPM examination, and he added that their success was attributed to their self-determination, perseverance, as well as their hard and smart work put in during their studies; and advised them to continue their journey in this college with added momentum in order to achieve their dream future. He too expressed his appreciation to the students’ family, relatives, teachers and friends who shared their patience, understanding the sacrifices, pride and joy of these students to have successfully further their studies at SIDMA College UNITAR Sabah, and hope that they will continuously support these students to achieve their dream.

Dr Morni also shared with the new students his success stories from being an ordinary village boy selling homemade cakes to neighbours, but because of his strong personality and determination to earn his PhD (Doctor of Philosophy), he had to work part-time at a McDonald’s outlet in England to finance his tuition fee in order to get his PhD in Entrepreneurship from Sterling University. England in 1990. His father was then a pensioner, and there was no financial institutional, such as PTPTN that he could turn to for financial assistance. But because of his determination to be successful, that is what brought him as he is today.

He reminded the students that to study is never easy, but he hope that these students can reflect on any issue faced seriously, and never give up their hope easily even when faced with challenging situations. Success is connected with action. A successful person keeps moving. One can make mistakes, but shouldn’t quit, he added.

We, the SIDMA College community will strive every day to help to make the college a more conducive place to study. He too reminded students to manage and put to good use on all facilities provided to them during their study here, including financial assistance such PTPTN loan. He reminded students that if they failed to manage their personal resources such as time and financial status properly, it can affect the concentration and thus will have a negative impact on their studies; and this means an uncompromising commitment to excellence in their studies. Dr Morni also encouraged these students to contribute their time and talent by being involved in community service, organisations, athletics and other important activities.

Currently, SIDMA College is equipped with some of the world class facilities, and is one of the first private institution of higher learning in Sabah to introduce e-learning; a hybrid model that combines the conventional face-to-face meetings with lecturers and tutors, and the internet-based support system that provide continuous interaction among students, tutors and lecturers.
