LIFELONG learners are the kind of people who have a burning desire for continuous self-improvement, and they aren’t necessarily working professionals who are seeking career progression. In fact those with a quest for knowledge include people of varying ages and professions.

The Human Resources Development Fund’s (HRDF) “Strengthening of Lifelong Learning for Skills Enhancement” aims to ensure a continuous supply of quality local human capital through effective initiatives that build and grow a world-class Malaysian workforce.

In support of the government’s initiative, Management and Science University (MSU) offers breakthrough ways for working adults wishing to further their studies. A wide range of programmes are offered with the convenience, education and professional backgrounds of students in mind.

Lifelong learners from all walks of life may access MSU’s range of undergraduate as well as postgraduate programmes, and choose from a variety of study modes to fit their situation best – whether to attend classes on weekdays, the weekends, or in the evenings, or to opt for virtual learning via video conference supported by online discussion.

Lifelong learning is vital for everybody and not just for the insatiably curious. Make lifelong learning a part of yourself, advance in your professional life, and gain immense personal fulfillment.
