Apart from BR1M, the government also always emphasizes on the importance of education for the youth. There are many ways or links provided for them to further their studies. One of the colleges that offer various interesting program is University College of Yayasan Pahang (UCYP),” said YB Dato’ Sri Ir. Hj.

Various financial assistances are offered for everyone, whether from private organization or government,” added him more.
According to UCYP Managing Director, University College of Yayasan Pahang is a college for all despite the differences. “UCYP is not a Malay college or an Indian college neither a Chinese college.
