The main purpose of this study is to identify the levels of soft skills and compare the differences in the levels of soft skills before and after they are acquired by students during club activities in higher education institutions. This study used the soft skills instrument by Malaysian Institutions of Higher Learning as the primary data collection method. The study sample consists of 57 members of the Interactive Multimedia Club (IMeC) from the Faculty of Technology and Computer Science, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). The association conducted UKM 2020 Computer Camp activities through the Animation and Graphic Design Program. The reliability of the instrument was tested using Cronbach’s alpha value. The descriptive and inferential statistical analysis using the paired t-test was used for various types of pre- and post-users’ soft skills from IMeC for a large-scale activity in UKM Computer Camp 2020. The results show an increase in students’ soft skills after conducting the UKM Computer Camp 2020 activities. The implications of this study show the students’ involvement in conducting club activities and their improvement in soft skills which are in line with the needs of employers that demand marketable employees.
