Read about what we are doing to ensure a safe campus environment’


The health and safety of students, staff and all in our community remains our utmost priority. Important elements of our Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) and the health and safety guidance we have put in place on campus can be found below.

However, as the COVID-19 pandemic remains an unpredictable and evolving situation, you are required to check your email and the announcements on Blackboard for the very latest information.

We are required to adhere to the latest guidance given by Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), Ministry of Health (KKM), National Security Council (NSC) and other recognised government authorities.   

Essential SOPs

Essential SOPs effective 8th Sept 2022

Here are the essential SOPs that will be valid from the date stated above and onwards until further notice. 

Please note the SOP is subject to change in accordance with the latest guidance issued by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and other government agencies. 

Entry to campus

  • The security team will no longer check your MySejahtera app;
  • You are obligated to follow the latest government advice on self-isolation if you are tested positive or identified as a close contact. Please refer to

If you are tested positive or identified as a close contact

  • If your work or learning is affected, please self-report on the MySejahtera app and inform your lecturer (if you are a student) or line manager (if you are a member of staff).
  • You will be required to include a screenshot of your updated MySejahtera status which will serve as a formal record of your status.
  • Students should consult with their lecturer or Programme Lead regarding their academic studies.
  • Staff should consult with their line manager regarding their work arrangements.
  • Please note that contact tracing will no longer be conducted but the Health and Safety Office at the University will continue to monitor the formation of potential clusters.

Masks and distancing

  • The wearing of masks on-campus is optional.
  • Social distancing is no longer required while on-campus but is encouraged outside of campus when not wearing a mask.

Teaching and learning

  • Teaching and learning will revert to normal (pre-pandemic) from September 2022 onwards subject to the latest guidance from the government and/or Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE).

In-person exams

  • For some modules, in-person exams are mandatory.
  • To sit for in-person exams, students must meet the ‘entry to campus’ requirements as stated above; no additional test is required.
  • Students who are feeling unwell during an exam will be treated according to the normal medical protocol and may be asked to leave the exam hall.
  • Please note that the University does not allow students to progress to their next year of academic study or graduate until they have passed any required exams and no alternative arrangements will be accepted. Students may therefore need to defer their studies if, for any reason, they are unable to sit and pass any required resit exams.
