Private colleges: Give us funds for growth


PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (Mapcu) is appealing to the government for an allocation in Budget 2021 for the country’s private education sector.

Its president Datuk Dr Parmjit Singh (pic) said the sector had been unaided over the last 60 years despite catering to over 50% of Malaysian students in higher education.

“Except for a sprinkling of incentives over six decades, the sector has not received any form of allocation.
