KAWAN, known as students’ ambassadors, is a new volunteer initiative to facilitate and assist postgraduate international students. The group of KAWAN helps aspiring international students in the process of applying for admission to pursue their academic careers at the USM. A KAWAN can be a student from any of the schools at the USM, providing individualised assistance to an applicant seeking admission. Besides, the service of KAWAN is pro bono and unconditional. Strictly a voluntary job and, as such, no KAWAN can be branded as a full-time agent.


  • Rules and Regulations:
    1. The incentive should be claimed within 4 months of the registration date of the recruited student. Forms submitted after 4 months will not be accepted regardless of the students’ condition.
    2. The recruited student should be a new student. Students, once graduated from USM, will not be entitled to get their form claimed even if they enrol/register as a new student for another course.
    3. Buddy forms have to be initially verified by the school of the recruited student. Forms without verification from the school will automatically be rejected.
    4. Buddy forms are subject to be rejected if the recruited students have outstanding fees with the bursary. This applies to all students without any exception.
    5. In case of any dispute between Agent and Buddy, the recruited student will be called upon to get clarification on the matter.
