QUEST International University (QIU) is holding its first-ever virtual open week (VOW) for potential students and parents to learn about the Ipoh-based university in the comfort of their home.
QIU chief operating officer Nicholas Goh said VOW would be held from today to May 4 and interested students could take a virtual tour of its classrooms, laboratories and facilities.
“They can also chat and video-call our counsellors and academics, including the faculty deans and deputy deans.
“Normally, they can view the university in person on a weekend but that is not possible now due to the movement control order (MCO), ” he said in a statement.
“QIU is giving them the opportunity to discover the institution online where they can take their time and ask as many questions as they want.
“That is something they may not be able to do during a regular open day, ” he added.
Goh said VOW would allow potential students to browse through testimonials, videos about student life, student awards and achievements as well as merit-based scholarships.
“They can take the virtual tour and view the videos at their leisure to make the right decision.
“This is a challenging period and our priority is everyone’s safety.”
He said the university’s online classes were a hit among students.
“Learning should not stop and our classes are proceeding online.
“The only way to know if our online classes work is to ask our students.
“We are very pleased with their response and will continue our efforts to improve further, ” he added.
