32 higher learning institutions involved in education fair

18th March, 2019

By JASON JACK EBIT

KOTA KINABALU: A total of 32 private institutions have participated in an education fair which was organised by GE Global Group.

GE Global Managing Director, Peter Wong said this was the 46th time that the education fair was being organised in East Malaysia since 2001.

“Normally we will hold four events in one year in each state which will usually be in March, June, October, and December.

“It is special this time because we are featuring some institutions that offer scholarships for students who are well qualified. They can talk to their representatives and then go through an interview before sitting for the entry exam for their desired university,” he said.

He said this when met by reporters during the education fair at the Hilton Kota Kinabalu Hotel on Sunday.

Among the institutions participating in the education fair were INTO University Partnerships, Northumbria University Newcastle, Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus, The University of Nottingham Malaysia, B.H.M.S, Asia Pacific University, Riam Institute of Technology, Amity Global Institute, Mander Portman Woodward (MPW), IQI Realty Sdn Bhd, Mahsa University, Swiss Education Group, Monash University Malaysia, Swinburne University of Technology Australia, Oxford International College, JMC Academy Australia, Southern Institute of Technology New Zealand, University of Sunderland and many more.

Wong explained that besides institutions, some property agencies from Perth and Melbourne, Australia also attended the fair to promote to parents who wish to send their children to study property investments.

“University pathway providers from other countries will be here most of the time. Some professors will attend the event personally to share students’ experiences of studying in Malaysian campuses,” he added.

He also disclosed that foreign universities and foundations provide scholarships ranging from 20 per cent, 50 per cent to full, based on the student’s qualification.

When asked what sets GES apart from other education fairs, he stated that some education fairs may provide scholarships but it may not provide scholarships on specific programmes.

“As long as you have 9A+’s, you will manage to get the full foundation scholarship from private institutions. You can get the scholarships too if you scored 8A+’s, albeit not full.”

He added that they have previously visited Sandakan and Tawau, and Kota Kinabalu will be the last stop for Sabah in the month of March. They will continue their education fair next in Sarawak on 22nd March in Miri, 23rd in Kuching, 24th in Sibu and 25th in Bintulu.
