“University in the City”

Wawasan Open University (WOU) has submitted an application to the Ministry of Higher Education that, if approved, will enable the university to conduct conventional fulltime classes at its George Town campus.

Tun Dr Lim Keng Yaik, WOU’s chancellor, was quoted saying that if the application is approved, the main campus on Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah will be complemented by different faculties all over the city, similar to that of the University of London.

Penang Institute board member Datuk Seri Chet Singh was conferred an honorary degree in acknowledgment of his lifelong dedicated service, stewardship and professional contribution to the development of Penang, its community as well as WOU.
