Study options aplenty
STUDENTS and parents today have many choices for their children’s studies. Upon completing SPM, the school-leavers can opt for local or overseas options. With these choices, there are bound to be confusion and misinformation.
JM Education Counselling Centre (JM) and Education UK are here to guide students and parents on this.
For two years running, JM has organised the JM Education Fair, which presents students and parents the opportunity to explore different education options and systems under one roof.
JM provides study options and opportunities from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Singapore and Malaysia.
During the fair, university and college representatives can meet and counsel potential students on every aspect of tertiary education.
The fair is perfect for those seeking secondary and high school studies, foundation, GCSE, A-Levels, IB, pre-university courses, diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate studies.
This year’s intakes will be in April, July and September for those who already hold relevant qualifications or are expected to receive their results in the near future.
Current SPM and college students are also welcomed to attend and pick up tips that can help them gain entry into the institution of their choice.
Some of the participating institutions include the Studygroup, representing Bellerbys College, Taylor’s College, ISC in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland and Canada; INTO with a range of universities from the UK and the US; Navitas for UK Pre-University; Cambridge Ruskin International College (CRIC); Cambridge Education Group (CEG) for United Kingdom and USA colleges and universities; Astrum Education; the ACG Education Council for Auckland, New Zealand, The University of Western Australia and others.
These institutions offer a diverse range of leading and cutting-edge courses in engineering, medicine, dentistry, business, arts and design, building, architecture, health sciences, agriculture, music, foundation courses, secondary studies and more.
For students who do not meet the university entry requirements, pathway programmes are available on- and off-campus in the form of foundation or diploma courses.
In addition, it is now possible for SPM, Form Five or O-Level holders to enrol in leading American and Canadian universities, in four-year undergraduate bachelor courses.
Those interested to attend the fair are advised to bring along their school, college and university results, transcripts and English qualification.
