The University of Malaya, in collaboration with Microsoft Malaysia and Prestariang join forces to ensure that the university’s students are up to date with the latest Microsoft Office suite, and have access to the company’s over 200 software under the MSDN Academic Alliance program through a collaborative effort known as the “Hedstart Program”.

The Hedstart Program, which requires students to play an annual fee of RM60, also includes free upgrades for existing original copies of Microsoft’s Windows operating system for free.

“The Hedstart Program will empower 25,000 of our students with genuine Microsoft Office 2010 software which we believe will impart world-class knowledge and resources to develop students to become highly skilled and confident to face the globally benchmarked accreditation.” said Datuk Prof. Dr. Rohana Yusof, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs), University of Malaya.
