This programme helps a lot of students who wish to further their studies after completing pre-university level. From this programme, students will get to obtain more information about their desired courses that they wish to pursue in the future and get to set their career pathway.
ERVINA NATHASA, 18, LOWER SIX STUDENT, SMK BAU
After visiting several booths, I obtained a lot of new information as I get to ask a lot of questions from the representatives of the agencies involved. For example, I asked a lot of questions from Swinburne University Sarawak campus and I get to know more about the fees structure and also the courses available.
MUHAMMAD BUKHARI, 18, LOWER SIX STUDENT, SMK BAU
This programme is able to help students in choosing a career that suits them in the future and also very useful in helping us to decide our career path. Besides, students are also well-informed about all the education and work opportunities from each institution and agency.
