About Young Chef SOEW ZHONG KHENG

Making a decision to study at Taylor’s University was one of the wise decision that I had made in this moment. Taylor’s University provide the best educate system and syllabus for us to ensure that we can do the best in our study period so that we can learn faster and work better than others. Besides that, we have the best lecturer or educator who have a very good working experience in the industry before. They share their worked experience and use the best way to teach us about what they know so that we are able to know how exactly are the things are going to be when the time we work in the industry. The lecturer that had been taught me before are all very kind and helpful. They always lend a hand to us whenever we need help. Other than that, the facilities that Taylor’s University had provided to us are the best compare to other university. We have a very huge library which contain a lot of books, journals and others for the student to do the research or get the information easily. Each floor of the library are used for different purpose. We have mac lab, computer lab, discussion room, a very comfort area to study, and a small cinema for us to relax. 4 years of study life in Taylor’s I have nothing to complain about. Good environment for student life and great staff to assists. I can’t ask for more than that.
