Last Update: 08/09/2019

KUALA TERENGGANU, Sept 8 -- The proposed merger between Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT) and Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA) will benefit both universities.

UniSZA vice-chancellor Professor Datuk Dr Hassan Basri Awang Mat Dahan said in a statement here today the merger would open more room for success for both universities and at the same time bring cost reductions.

However, he said, the proposed idea was not merely about budget or cost savings but the welfare of the staff of the two universities that was the most important issue that must be addressed.

Hassan Basri added he was informed that the proposed merger was not a new idea and it had been thought by the previous government but they might not had the courage to implement it.

“However, I believe the current government has studied the pros and cons of merging before the government agreed to proceed with the idea,” he said.

It was reported by a news portal on Thursday, UMT and UniSZA may be merged as part of Putrajaya’s austerity measures for higher-learning institutions and the final decision of the merger was expected soon.
