EduQuest education manager Michael Yii said parents and students will be able to obtain the latest course information and scholarships from higher education institutions in Sarawak, Peninsular Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, the United Kingdom and United States.
“Some participating institutions are offering students to pay their 2017 fees if they apply or enrol during the fair. Generally, tuition fees will increase between 3 to 5 per cent on yearly basis,” he said in a statement yesterday.
“The EduQuest Education Fair is the best platform for them to obtain advice from representatives of various institutions to see what best suits them.”
Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia, Unified Examination Certificate, International General Certificate of Secondary Education, A-Levels school-leavers and diploma holders can visit the fair with their parents and are advised to bring along their school trial or exam results for immediate evaluation.
More than 80 international and local universities will participate in the fair.

Yii said 2018 would be another challenging year for most parents due to the current economic situation.
“Hence, institutions are offering attractive scholarships, bursaries and incentives in order to ease parents’ burden in financing their children’s further education,” he said.
