Petition to urge IMU to provide transportation for Gombak visit AND decrease the amount to be paid as hostel fees for BP and Kluang
To whomever it may concern,
The purpose of this petition is to urge the Academic services to :
1) provide transportation for Gombak hospital visit since it is very difficult for everyone to carpool or get a taxi at a reasonable price. This is especially difficult for international students and other local students who do not have a car.
2) IMU is charging the same amount of money for semester 5 even though we spend 1 month away and not using its facility. The whole batch pays approximately 10 million RM and IMU has requested to:
1- charge the batch an extra 130,000rm for accommodation
2- make a lot of students rent out cars for at least 2500rm a month during hospital visit
3- fund our own community research project costing 5000rm (whole batch)
WE WANT IMU TO FUND ALL THAT SINCE 10million seems to be in significant to our additional payments. IF THEY DO NOT WANT then we request to reduce our semester fees since in semester 5 we hardly have any classes compared to other semesters and we spend most of the time outside of IMU.
For those students who cant find anyone for transport and cant afford to rent a car, they are actually thinking of taking a coach to Batu Pahat/Kluang and they feel scared. WE also ask of IMU to consider for their students safety.
3) decrease the amount to be paid for hostel fees in BP and Kluang stay. The amount RM 630 is a huge sum to be paid let alone pay it in 5 days. Moreover the amount seems to be higher than previous batches.
Hence we, ME214, with students from ME115, urge the ASD to consider making these changes as it would help us get rid of this stress and focus more on learning.
Furthermore we request from the ASD to clearly brief us regarding the fees and the changes
