More Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) on education are expected to be inked between Qatar and Malaysia in the coming days, according to the Southeast Asian nation’s ambassador Ahmed Fadil bin Shamsuddin. He was speaking after opening the Study in Malaysia counselling session at Movenpick Hotel yesterday.
Recalling the visit of His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani to Malaysia last year, Shamsuddin said a series of initiatives, including those in education, were launched immediately afterwards and some MoUs were reached between the two countries. Malaysian students could avail of scholarships to pursue education at Qatar’s Hamad Bin Khalifa University, he said.
Yesterday, Malaysian educational authorities had meetings with the Qatar’s Minister for Education and Higher Education HE Mohamed Abdul Wahed Ali al-Hammadi and other senior officials and discussed the possibility for more MoUs. Ambassador Shamsuddin said their government, headed by Prime Minister Mahatir Mohamed, is committed to the vision of turning Malaysia into a high-quality education destination for students from across the world. “Our Ministry of Education and other educational agencies continue to monitor and ensure that Malaysian higher educational institutions adhere to the highest educational standards,” he said.
While answering a query, the ambassador said in some of the government-run universities in Malaysia, there are a few scholarships for international students, based on their academic performance.
