RMIT University in partnership with AUG Students Services (AUG) have launched an innovative approach to reaching out to people in the remote areas of Malaysia.
Malaysian people seeking advice on higher education would have to travel to major cities to attend education expos. Until now.
The first of its kind in South East Asia, the Mobile Education Counselling Unit (MECU), is a spacious van fitted out with table, chairs, wi fi, printer and a comprehensive range of publications and brochures to provide information and advice on study options.
The new van will allow AUG's educational consultants to visit regional schools and colleges, giving potential students easy access to assistance with finding the institutions and courses that will best suit them, as well as everything that's involved in studying in another country.
Speaking at the official launch in Subang Jaya, Malaysia on 13 March, Rongyu Li, Executive Director, RMIT International said how proud RMIT was to be a part of this project.
"RMIT Australia welcomes hundreds of Malaysian students each year, and so we are delighted to be able to give back to the Malaysian community in this way."
