QUEST International University held its first Open Day in line with next month’s intake. Academic Professor Emeritus Dato’ Dr. V.G. Kumar Das, who launched the ceremony, said that since the university was new, it needs publicity. The aim of the university is to provide quality education at an affordable price.
Within three years the university will move to its own campus in Gua Tempurung from the present site at Plaza Teh Teng Seng on Kampar Road. The university will emphasise skills training and work closely with SMEs and local industries to produce graduates who can fulfil the requirements of employers.
Being an international university, it aims to have up to 40% overseas students. The medical faculty will be operational soon.
The university is offering scholarships worth RM1.5m for their foundation courses for Perak-born applicants. There is also a waiver of 50% on the fees for first-year students joining bachelor degree programmes for next month’s intake.
