Malaysia Education Exhibition 2013 held at Galadari Hotel Anthurium Hall on the 16th & 17th of March was attended by a large number students and parents. The exhibition was declared opened by the Malaysian High Commissioner His Excellency Azmi Zainuddin in the presence of a large gathering of distinguished guests and well wishers.
It was a tremendous success. There were a large no of prospective students and parents who visited the exhibition and expressed their complete satisfaction at being able to meet with many representatives from all the top private education providers in Malaysia. All visitors to the exhibition spoke of the exhibition approvingly as they were able to get firsthand, reliable and factual information.
The exhibition was organized by International Scholar Educational Services (pvt) Ltd. (ISES), Sri Lanka in association with Winning Magnitude Sdn. Bhd Malaysia. The event was supported by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia and endorsed by the Sri Lanka Malaysia Business Council (SLMBC) and The Malaysian High Commission in Sri Lanka.
ISES is a reputed international career guidance and student placement service center in Sri Lanka recruiting Sri Lankan students to nearly 100 institutes in Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Russia, US and Canada. With accumulated experiences of being in the Sri Lankan overseas student placement market for 14 years they are very knowledgeable of Sri Lankan student’s higher education dreams. With a view to help those students who are seeking to pursue their higher education in Malaysia International Scholar has been organizing the Malaysian Education Exhibition for 7 years consecutively. And this recently concluded exhibition was a tremendous success and is the 13th in the chain of annual and or bi annual exhibitions conducted by ISES with their Malaysian partner, Winning Magnitude Sdn Bhd.
CEO of ISES, Keerthi Jayasuriya stated that the event opens new avenues for those students who are seeking to reach their higher educational goals. He added that Malaysia is a very good alternative for these students when all factors of studying overseas such as the cost, culture, weather and the flexibility in choosing majors are considered. Students can obtain degrees from world renowned universities studying in their (university’s) own branch campuses in Malaysia. Another advantage of studying in Malaysia to be factored in is the close proximity and the ease of travel between Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
A student who applied to a reputed university at the exhibition told us “I was able to get admission to a good university at the event and as I have got 2A’s and 1B for my A/L, also I was able to get a scholarship worth 35% of the tuition fee. I feel this is the best place to get firsthand information on higher education overseas and every student thinking of overseas higher education must attend this event”. With similar expressions of satisfaction uttered by many students it can confidently be stated that the objectives of the exhibitions were achieved.
