Great start for the new jour­ney

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

DE­MAND in Malaysia for over­seas higher education re­mains strong with the coun­try’s con­sis­tent eco­nomic growth cou­pled with par­ents’ de­sire for their chil­dren to pur­sue their education abroad.

How­ever, the re­cent rise in af­ford­able higher education pro­grammes lo­cally has par­ents won­der­ing whether there are op­por­tu­ni­ties to still pro­vide the best re­turn on in­vest­ment when study­ing abroad.

IDP Education Malaysia coun­try di­rec­tor Ajay Rao ex­plains why an over­seas education is the best choice to get the most from study­ing abroad,

“Malaysian par­ents work very hard to give their chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to get the best education. This is be­cause they know that the in­vest­ment they make now in their child’s education will pay div­i­dends for their child’s fu­ture ca­reer op­tions and life­style op­por­tu­ni­ties.”

Study­ing over­seas demon­strates that a grad­u­ate has the nec­es­sary cre­ative, in­no­va­tive and in­de­pen­dent think­ing that is im­per­a­tive for the child’s fu­ture de­vel­op­ment and ca­reer path.

At IDP Education Malaysia, its coun­sel­lors are trained to as­sist stu­dents through­out their jour­ney to ex­plore education op­por­tu­ni­ties in Aus­tralia and New Zealand. This goes be­yond a coun­sel­lor merely match­ing your choice of study with suit­able in­sti­tu­tions.

In fact, IDP, be­ing at the fore­front of the education in­dus­try, has in­vested in tech­nol­ogy to help Malaysian stu­dents find the best in­sti­tu­tions to study in.

IDP Education Lim­ited – a global leader in in­ter­na­tional stu­dent place­ments is host­ing the IDP Aus­tralia and New Zealand Education Ex­hi­bi­tion March 2016 from March 8 to 20 in six ma­jor cities – Jo­hor Baru, Kuala Lumpur ( two days), Pe­nang, Ipoh, Kuch­ing and Kota Kinabalu.

With over 30 pres­ti­gious in­sti­tu­tions grac­ing the ex­hi­bi­tion, this will be a great op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents hop­ing to com­mence their Aus­tralian and New Zealand study as­pi­ra­tions for the July 2016 and Fe­bru­ary 2017 in­takes.
