Your quest for knowledge does not have to end with graduation. Lifelong learners have a burning desire for self-improvement throughout their lives.

Though the term may seem especially applicable to the degreed graduate in the workforce with career progression in mind, lifelong learning is necessary for all ages and professional backgrounds.

The Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) programme – Strengthening of Lifelong Learning for Skills Enhancement – ensures a continuous supply of quality local human capital through effective initiatives to build and grow a world-class Malaysian workforce.

Such initiatives include capitalising on studying while working. 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 student’s convenience as well as their educational and professional backgrounds in mind.

Lifelong learning is vital for everybody. Make lifelong learning a part of yourself, advance in your professional life, and gain immense personal fulfillment.
