KUALA LUMPUR: It is practically free to study in Germany with zero tuition fees in almost all higher learning institutions in the country.
German Educare co-founder Jonathan Lau said the cost of studying there was also low and that the average cost of living was around 720 (RM3,441) a month.
“Germany is among the cheapest countries to study in,” he said during the “How To Study Your Bachelor’s Degree For Free” talk at the Star Education Fair 2019. The talk drew a huge crowd on the second day of the fair.
“There is also the opportunity for Malaysians to stay back (after graduating) to work because Germany wants to retain talent,” he added.
Lau also said that although it was not necessary to know German to study there, it is highly recommended in order to interact with the community and work part-time.
He recommended students to enrol in science and technology courses as Germany is known to be very strong in these fields.
“Mathematics is a must,” he said as he explained about what pre-university subjects are compulsory to enrol for courses.
There is more to healthcare than doctors, nurses and pharmacists.
“From incident up to recovery, every injury involves a diverse team of healthcare specialists – from medical doctor, nurse, physiotherapist, psychologist, occupational therapist, dentist, speech therapists, and many more depending on the case,” said Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences (CUCMS) Centre for Collaborative Partnerships director Dr Hassan Sathik at his talk on “The Integrated Healthcare Team – Exciting Careers In Healthcare” on the second day of the fair.
Dr Hassan, who is a medical doctor, added that the future is bright for youngsters who want to venture into the healthcare sector.
“It is a recession-proof occupation.
