The Centre for Languages and General Studies is the
provider of all university core courses. This means that, although
it does not offer specific diploma or degree programmes, the Centre
has a central role to play in the academic life of every student
who enrolls at UNIRAZAK.
First, as the medium of instruction at UNIRAZAK
is English, one of the Centre's roles is to help students attain
an acceptable level of proficiency in the language to enable them
to complete their studies successfully. In fact, English, whether
it be in the form of English Proficiency, English for Special Purposes
or Business Communication, is an integral part of every undergraduate
programme taught at UNIRAZAK. And for those who need extra help
the Centre offers an Intensive English Programme. The Centre also
offers other language proficiency courses including Basic Arabic,
Mandarin, French and German.
Another of the Centre's roles is to prepare students
for the academic demands of their studies through the provision
of a number of thinking and study skills based courses,
Finally, the Centre is responsible for offering
the prescribed MQA/LAN courses - Bahasa Malaysia, Malaysian Studies
and Islamic or Moral Studies - and all co-curriculum courses, thus
helping to ensure that students who graduate from UNIRAZAK are well-rounded
and responsible individuals who are ready to take their place both
in the workforce and in the community at large.
