Extracurricular activities can form a vital part of your experience and create unique opportunities for friendships and learning. At MUT we aim to make your studies and social life as fulfilling and enjoyable as possible. Good physical and mental health is the result of a balanced life. We believe that students should aim for success by working hard in their studies, and taking time to make friends and develop interests outside the classroom. MUT offers a range of support services intended to give students a life-long experience.
The Library Services provides a wide range of instructional services to assist staff and students in the use of information sources and library facilities.
