UNIVERSITI Kebangsaan Malaysia has accepted 176 international students, the highest number for the university to date, Sin Chew Daily reported. 

Of the total, 162 are from China. 

UKM deputy vice-chancellor (industry and community relations) Prof Dr Saran Kaur Gill said that the students would have to attend a four-month basic language and a course on Malaysian culture which would start next month. 

“The students will only start their university programmes next year,” she said. 

She added that this was the first batch of international students from China. 

“The increasing number of international students will not decrease the chances of local students getting into the university,” said Prof Dr Saran Kaur. 

Allocate same allowances to Chinese primary school 

> Nanyang Siang Pau reported Malaysian National Headmasters Union president Pang Chong Leong as saying that the Education Ministry should allocate the same allowances to partially-aided and also fully aided Chinese primary schools. 

“The administrative allowance given by the ministry to the partially aided schools is not enough to cover their expenses,” he said.
