TAWAU: Students of the Open University of Malaysia (OUM) of Tawau branch will be able to use better facilities with the university’s new building.
Deputy Director of Tawau OUM, Vera Voo Mui Yin, said the new building is located at the area of Bandar Sri Indah, about 24 kilometers away from Tawau city centre.

Vera said, currently there are twelve programmes offered by the branch with eight of the courses are for bachelor degree in management, human resource management, accounting, and Islamic studies, with 1,503 graduates have completed their studies since 2002 until last year. – SayangSabah
