Ministry to woo foreign students- Taken from thestar
“Malaysia houses not only institutions of higher learning established by locals, but also many campuses set up by other international institutions here,” Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin told a press conference in Plentong yesterday.
“With 41 private and 20 public institutions in the country, we are in a good position to attract them,” he said. Khaled said the ministry would ensure the institutions’ policies and the disciplines offered were of international standard.
He said that organisations like the Malaysian Qualification Agency and Malaysia Medical Council would ensure the quality of education provided by the institutions remained high.
“We have also requested all the private institutions to participate in the rating programme (for institutions of higher learning),” he said.He said Africa and the Middle East were huge potential markets with 43 million people having qualified for tertiary education.
The 60,000 foreign students currently studying here were also working on recruiting more students from their home countries, he added.
Previously, you requested for Malaysians who are working out side of Malaysia to come back and help Malaysia progress. Look at the way you deal with things, you are not even helping to maintain Malaysian who work here. Disappointed.
How those of good qualities Malaysian could stay back and help Malaysia when their own country is not helping them? What a good way to shoo away Malaysian in the beginning of the year.
