GE­ORGE TOWN: The on­line ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line for en­try into pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties for 2017 is be­ing ex­tended to April 5, said Higher Ed­u­ca­tion Min­istry deputy sec­re­tary-gen­eral (De­vel­op­ment) Datuk Nik Ali Mat Yunus.

He said the dead­line, pre­vi­ously March 31, is be­ing ex­tended to pro­vide suf­fi­cient time for stu­dents with Si­jil Pe­la­jaran Malaysia (SPM) fol­low­ing the late an­nounce­ment of the re­sults.

“This ex­ten­sion will en­able stu­dents to make the right de­ci­sions on the choice of pro­grammes to ap­ply for,” he said when of­fi­ci­at­ing the Na­tional Higher Ed­u­ca­tion 2017 Car­ni­val for North Zone at Univer­siti Sains Malaysia (USM) here yes­ter­day.

A to­tal of 110 ex­hibitors from 20 pub­lic uni­ver­si­ties, 47 private uni­ver­si­ties and 43 agen­cies are in­volved in the two-day car­ni­val.

He said the car­ni­val was very im­por­tant to help school leavers get the right in­for­ma­tion on cour­ses to ap­ply for at higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions.

“The car­ni­val also serves as a one-stop cen­tre for stu­dents to di­rectly meet with rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the in­sti­tu­tions,” he said.

This 13th car­ni­val is aimed at dis­sem­i­nat­ing in­for­ma­tion on ex­ist­ing and new pro­grammes of­fered by ter­tiary ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions.
