‘Rakan Pendamping Siswa’ (RPS)

 

In addition, UniMAP has a student support system known as the ‘Rakan Pendamping Siswa’ (RPS) or roughly translated as ‘Students Buddy System’. It is a system whereby all academic staff supervises small groups of students for the whole duration of the students’ stay in UniMAP. ‘Supervision’ here entails frequent meetings under informal settings, where students can relax with their ‘buddies’ (academic staff) and discuss academic and social issues that concern them. Students who do not hold satisfactory academic performance look to their buddies as ‘mentors’, in which the student becomes the ‘mentee’ of the buddy, who helps the student out every step of the way. Students with P1 status is required to attend counseling session conducted by Counsellor Unit, HEPA.

RPS also entails the necessity of all students to go through a series of programmes (known as the ‘7 pillars’), which comprise of courses, seminars, discourses and other activities.
