Topics to be covered in the seminar to be facilitated by experienced speakers include prospects after SPM and STPM, credit points, scholarships as well as application procedures and getting ready for university life.
Additionally, SUPP Youth Central Education Bureau will also attend to questions from students through their Facebook page at SUPP Youth Higher Education Counseling.
Representatives from the National Higher Education Fund (PTPTN) will also set up a counter to assist and guide students on applying for loans to fund their tertiary education.
The Bureau encouraged post-graduates from local universities to join the team to help school leavers at the upcoming programme. For more information, contact Lai at 012-8813839. — DayakDaily
