WHAT IMPACT HAS THIS PROJECT CREATED IN THE COMMUNITY / NATION?
Through our Scholar Search initiative, students and parents are aware that they are qualified for this saving. Some of these full scholarships include our partnership with Sunway Medical Centre and similar sponsors for students pursuing nursing education. We also facilitated the matching of full scholarships provided by government agencies for design & architecture courses.
HOW HAS THIS PROJECT HELP TO ADVANCE THE CHOSEN SDG?
With further development of our Uni Enrol platform and nationwide initiatives, we aim to improve discover ability of all the opportunities stated above to enable equal access to all levels of education. With scholarships and financial aid, tuition fee at many quality institutions become significantly lower and therefore more affordable to most of the Malaysian families. It means that there are more quality options for students to choose from instead of settling for less due to financial constraints. Besides that, we also focus on helping students to get into institutions that produce highly employable graduates to ensure better fresh graduate employability in Malaysia. We also plan to work closer with partner institutions to bring to the forefront courses targeted at the development of technical, vocational or even up skilled leanings which are affordable and may suit certain students more.
