Sanaa, August 16 – The Malaysian International Education Fair “Study in Malaysia”, held during 15-16 August under the auspices of Minister of Higher Studies and Scientific Research Dr. Abdulwahhab Raweh, witnessed overwhelming success. Thousands of interested Yemenis interesting in learning more about studying in Malaysia visited to the fair, which was organized at the Taj Sheba Hotel by the Yemen International Health Center (YIHC) and EXPAM and sponsored by Qatar Airways.
“This was such a remarkably successful fair. We have been impressed by the great interest of Yemenis willing to travel to Malaysia to pursue higher studies.” said Dr. Ali K. Abbas, YIHC's General Manager.
“We noticed that hundreds of application forms have already been filled in such a short time, and still, interest seems to be growing.”
“I can tell you that education in Malaysia is indeed of international standards. Language used in all Malaysian universities is English, except for one, which is in Arabic.” he added.
Eight prestigious universities and colleges participated in the event, which also included power point wide screen presentations about the institutes and their services. The participating institutes were the International Group of Colleges, Kolej Universiti Tun Hussin Onn, Limkokwing University College of Creative Technology, Multimedia University, Olympia College, Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Universiti Outra Malaysia, and Universiti Sains Malaysia.
Taking into account the advantages that Malaysian universities have over European and American universities in terms of cost and convenience -while maintaining same level of quality-, the number of Yemeni students to enroll in those universities is expected to rise substantially.
“Such fairs are instrumental to inform the Yemeni community of the great options and opportunities available in other countries such as Malaysia in terms of quality higher education.” Dr. Abbas concluded.
