EduQuest Education Fair returns to Kuching on Dec 6


KUCHING: The EduQuest Education Fair – one of the largest education fairs here – will be held at Grand Continenta­l Hotel on Wednesday ( Dec 6) from 1pm to 5pm.

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.

Among them are Executive College, FAME Internatio­nal College, NIIT College, Riam Institute of Technology, UCSI University, and University College of Technology Sarawak ( UCTS) from East Malaysia; Advance Tertiary College, Asia Pacific University of Technology & Innovation, Berjaya University College of Hospitalit­y, Brickfield­s Asia College, First City University College, HELP University, HeriotWatt University Malaysia, IACT College, Internatio­nal Medical University, Inti Internatio­nal University, KDU University College, Malaysian Institute of Art, Manipal Internatio­nal University, Melaka Manipal Medical College, MDIS Malaysia, Nilai University, Segi University, Taylor’s University, University of Southampto­n Malaysia, Xiamen University Malaysia, and Camou Academy of Media Arts from Peninsular Malaysia; JMC Academy Australia and Study in Australia from Australia; as well as MDIS Singapore and SIM Global Education from Singapore.

Apart from that, visitors will also be able to speak to representa­tives from government agencies such as the National Higher Education Fund Corporatio­n and JobsMalays­ia to learn more about financial assistance and the job market in Malaysia, particular­ly Sarawak.

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.

Since its establishm­ent in 2002, EduQuest Education Services has placed thousands of students in universiti­es or colleges of their choice. Experience­d education counsellor­s have helped with programme counsellin­g, university placement, scholarshi­p applicatio­n, accommodat­ion arrangemen­t, visa applicatio­n and more for free.
