Services for students with special needs

UNIRAZAK strives to provide equality of opportunity and access to education to as many Malaysians of different backgrounds and economic status. We welcome all international students to join our Razakian community and
experience our quality education and hospitality.

Our mission is to ensure that UNIRAZAK graduates are the top choice for employers, enterprises, and industries. It is our vision to achieve 100% employability for our graduates.

Our campus is strategically located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, accessible by various modes of transportation. The Ampang Park MRT station is just a short distance away from our campus on Jalan Tun Razak.

There’s ample parking space with elevator services to reach our classrooms and offices. Our campus is wheelchair ac cessible from the basement car park, and the simple yet spacious interior corridors would allow easy manoeuvring by all.

Our close-knit relationship among staff and students would make everyone feel welcomed to this family. We support the building of a te aching and learning environment and community that is inclusive and equitable for the benefit of all students.

While we have yet to provide specialist services to enable special needs students to become wholesome independent learners, we have a structured operating procedure in handling the varied needs.
We aim to create an inclusive learning environment that makes learning accessible to all. However, we understand that one size does not always fit all, 

therefore we have a team of staff who are dedicated in ensuring that support arrangements are in place where needed. We encourage prospective students with special needs to disclose the nature of their needs during the admission and enrolment procedures.

 The enrolme nt form seeks self-disclosure of a disability. While the University undertakes to assist students with disabilities in their studies, it can do so only if students disclose the nature of their disability in the admission procedures.

If you have a disability, mental health difficulty, long-term medical condition (e.g., diabetes, asthma, and high blood pressure), autistic spectrum condition, or a specific learning difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, or ADHD, we are here to help you.

For us to help, we ask that you register with our certified counsellors and provide them with the professional diagnosis or report you have obtained from the relevant medical and/or psychological experts, or any other relevant authorities such the Malaysian Department of Welfare (Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat).
Please note that we do not have the expertise to diagnose your conditions. However, our certified counselors,     Mr Syafiq and Ms Sabiha, may be able to suggest that you connect with the different departments or agencies relevant to your issues for further assistance.

In consultation with the Students Experience Department and/or other expert advisors, the Dean/Director of each School/Centre shall be r esponsible for supervision and review of the progress of students with disabilities. 

This may among others include the development of teaching and assessment methods
appropriate to students with disabilities such as:

-  Extended time given for completion of quizzes, tests and examinations.
-  Modification in student’s academic course loads according to their capabilities e.g., allowance to take courses at the very minimal credit hours.
- Special need guidance and counselling assistance within limits of the available resources during student’s study duration.

Among the available assistance could be additional time for completing assessments and exams and differently arranged examinations e.g., venue allowing typing on computer keyboards rather than handwriting, followin g the recommendations from the medical and/or psychological experts.

To assist you to study independently, you can access special needs services and arrangement for assessment adjustments. This may include flexibility in assignment deadlines and alternati ve arrangements for exams. An advisor may also make suggestions when they meet with you.

At the moment, we have yet to acquire specific hardware and software for assisting the learning processes of the visual and/or audio impaired individuals. Our online learning environment, 

the UniRazak Online Experience or better known as UROX, provide the platform where learning materials in the form of slides and notes are available. These can be easily converted to sound using freely available programmes such as NVDA, which can greatly assist students with visual impairment.

In addition to the presentation slides, recorded lectures are also available for downloading at any time. Moreover, lecturers provide feedback to students’ work via the UROX platform, allowing eas y retrieval by students. Students can also comunicate with lecturers via UROX by posting questions and submitting their work.

We are working towards transcribing the entire pre -recorded lectures to make these accessible to students with hearing impairmen t. Should students feel comfortable with the devices they can individually acquire to assist their learning, we are more than happy to welcome them into our programmes.

An option to be seriously considered for the physically challenged, is our Online and Distance Learning (ODL) programmes. We have more than 20 programmes with ODL option from the diploma to PhD levels. 

These programmes provide learning materials that students can use for their learning in the comfort of their homes. Physical classes where c onducted, are scheduled mainly during weekends. The examinations are generally conducted online.

Where possible, arrangements can be made to accommodate requests from students, with supporting documentation from relevant experts. We look forward to welcoming you into the Razakian community!
The Bantuan Kewangan Pelajar Orang Kurang Upaya (BKOKU) scheme provides financial aid for Malaysian students with disabilities studying at any institution under the purview of the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE),

whether full time, part-time or long distance. It is available to students who are registered with Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakat (JKM), and holding the OKU card.

The aid covers a time period ranging from 2 to 4 years for diploma, postgraduate diploma, bachelor, masters and PhD programme. 

Approvals are subject to meeting the requirements and criteria, and following the terms and conditions as stipulated by MOHE and the Malaysian government.
