The QS is an international rating system that measures institutions in particular areas of excellence.

It also provides students with a wider perspective of a particular institution’s qualities.

The ceremony concluded with the Dikir Marhaban, and a recitation of Doa Selamat led by Ustaz Md Fazalley bin Haji Hidup, the Religious Officer of UTB, to celebrate the safe return of UTB’s Haj pilgrims that included its lecturers, staff members and students.
