PETALING JAYA: Higher education campuses will fully reopen in October, says the Higher Education Ministry.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Dr Noraini Ahmad said 30% of private higher education institutions can start returning from July, in line with the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities' request.

This, she said, was a request made by the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (Mapcu).

Public higher educational institution (IPTA students - first, second, third and fourth years) who need clinical, practical, workshop, labs, studios or special equipment; those who will be sitting for professional examinations; and those who do not have access to the Internet or a conducive learning environment which facilitates the teaching and learning process; can also make their way back to their respective varsities.

Foreign students – including newly registered students – can also return to their campuses.

She said all institutes of higher learning would be given the flexibility to determine the most suitable modes – including online learning – for their respective programmes.

On July 1, Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that the National Security Council has approved the ministry’s proposal to reopen the institutions.

He said that the country’s Covid-19 outbreak had stabilised and the reopening of these institutions would include allowing foreign students to return.
