Malaysians To Increase Student Intake

The Malaysia Education Centre will be looking at increasing its student intake for 2015 when they it comes down to Fiji for its expo next month.

Fiji High Commission counsellor in Malaysia Pita Tagicakirewa said there had been many positive remarks on the sponsorship.

“Over 100 Fijian students have completed their studies in Malaysia and currently, there are 34 sponsored students with an additional 13 currently under other sponsorships,” Mr Tagicakirewa said.

“During the expo, Malaysia’s universities will showcase the programmes they’re offering to attract potential students,” he said.

Mr Tagicakirewa said many successful students had graduated from the universities.

“These endeavours were proven right after the first batch of students all successfully graduated; returned home and are working in the private or public sector,” he said.

The University of Putra Malaysia, the nation’s premiere agriculture college, has produced some of Fiji’s Masters’ students in agriculture from the ministries of agriculture and education.

“Presently, two students are enrolled in the university’s veterinary science programme, an essential skill that is deeply lacking in Fiji,” Mr Tagicakirewa said.

“Three students are currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Forestry programme with the University of Malaysia Sabah, which is Malaysia’s top forestry school.”

The Expo will be held at the Hexagon International Hotel in Nadi from January 19-20 and at the Holiday Inn Suva on January 23 and 24.
