Unhealthy student-staff ratio

They have a lot of students but not a lot of academic staff. They are heading toward the direction of research uni but basically, you would be no time for research. If you like teaching only, UTAR maybe your good choice.

UTAR is an excellent place to work beyond doubt,but the good work rendered is not appreciated at time.A wonderful place for research and related activities.

The maximum teaching hours is 24 per week. The management gives a lot of opportunities and flexibility to the staff to conduct activities and events relevant to the education. The staff is allowed to work from home during the trimester break as long as the paper work is completed. The freedom is supposed to make staff to be more discipline. However, there are staff who takes things for granted. In my opinion, there is not hardest part of the job as challenges come with students' different learning attitudes. I am an educator who should take the challenges and be initiative to conduct different teaching methodologies so that students are engaged to the teaching content and be fun in learning. With the positive emotional cultured in most of the students, teaching and learning can be conducted in positive ways. Due to the competitive in educational industry, I could not deny that the failure rate is the main concern for management as students are hoped to complete their studies in the working institute. The most enjoyable part is the respect from staff and students.

This is my first full academic job. I learnt academic teaching and class management skills. The workplace culture is professional and dynamic with high targets to achieve.




Low Pay

sufficient facilities and friendly colleagues

High but fair teaching hours due to high number of student population. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with deadlines to submit marks for students' coursework and final exams. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to know the students and finding the gems among them.


annual bonus, employer EPF contribution


short breaks
