STUDENT TESTIMONIALS
Eric Shaun Seaton
Bachelor of Communication and Public Relations
Graduate of 2014
I wouldn’t be who I am today without the guidance from all the good lecturers at KDU Penang especially Mr Paul and Mr Andrew. At KDU, we learned differently! We learned inside and outside the classroom, we participated in organising various events which made our learning process fun and practical. All the skills learned, particularly the PR skill actually helps in getting my first job as well as in dealing with people from all walks of life.
