UiTM remains for Malays, Bumiputera – VC

SHAH ALAM, Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) vice-chancellor Prof Emeritus Datuk Dr Hassan Said stressed that the university still retain its original policy to accept Malays and Bumiputera only.

He said the policy was still relevant given that many Malays and Bumiputera especially those from underprivileged families in rural areas who still need UiTM.

We see that UiTM has had a huge impact on the unity of ‘bangsa Malaysia’ as we contribute to (social) equity for uniting the nation. UiTM is still relevant to contribute towards that goal, so now it is not the time for us to change the policy, he told a media conference here today.
