One-stop ed­u­ca­tion fair

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - EDUCATION GUIDE -

NOWA­DAYS, stu­dents and par­ents are ex­posed to many choices of stud­ies. Upon com­plet­ing SPM, stu­dents can opt for lo­cal or over­seas ed­u­ca­tion.

JM Ed­u­ca­tion Coun­selling Cen­tre (JM) and Ed­u­ca­tion UK are here to guide stu­dents and par­ents on this. For the sec­ond year run­ning, they are or­gan­is­ing the JM Ed­u­ca­tion Fair (pre­vi­ously known as Global Ed­u­ca­tion Fair) on the fol­low­ing dates and venues:

> Feb 21 (Fri­day) from 2pm to 7pm at Grand Paragon Ho­tel, Jo­hor Baru

> Feb 22 (Satur­day) from noon to 5pm at Traders Ho­tel, Pe­nang

> March 1 (Satur­day) from noon to 5pm at Four Points by Sher­a­ton Ho­tel, Kuch­ing

> March 2 (Sun­day) from noon to 5pm at the Palace Ho­tel, Kota Kin­a­balu

JM aims to ex­pose stu­dents and par­ents to study op­tions and op­por­tu­ni­ties in Bri­tain, Aus­tralia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, Sin­ga­pore and Malaysia.

Univer­sity and col­lege rep­re­sen­ta­tives will be on hand to meet and coun­sel stu­dents on the choice of in­sti­tu­tions, cour­ses, en­try re­quire­ments, credit trans­fer op­por­tu­ni­ties, ac­com­mo­da­tion plus schol­ar­ship in­for­ma­tion. This is a great op­por­tu­nity to ex­plore dif­fer­ent ed­u­ca­tion op­tions and sys­tems un­der one roof.

The fair will ap­peal to stu- dents in sec­ondary and high school stud­ies, foun­da­tion, GCSE, A-Level, IB, pre-univer­sity cour­ses, di­ploma, un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate stud­ies.

The next likely in­takes will be in April, July and Septem­ber for those who al­ready hold rel­e­vant qual­i­fi­ca­tions or are ex­pected to get their re­sults in the near fu­ture.

Cur­rent SPM and col­lege stu­dents are also wel­come to find out more about ad­mis­sions for this year.

For stu­dents who do not meet univer­sity en­try re­quire­ments, path­way pro­grammes are avail­able on and off cam­pus of uni­ver­si­ties in the form of foun­da­tion or di­ploma cour­ses.

In ad­di­tion, it is now pos­si­ble for SPM / Form 5 / O-Level hold­ers to enrol in leading Amer­i­can and Cana­dian uni­ver­si­ties’ fouryear un­der­grad­u­ate cour­ses.
