I just graduated from Universiti Malaya with a degree in Civil Engineering. Having graduated top of my class with three awards presented to me during the recent convocation, I am about to embark on my postgraduate studies in one of the best universities in the world – Imperial College London.
Unfortunately, I have failed to secure a study loan for my fees from the Public Service Department, the reason being that loans are not given for postgraduate studies. I am not even asking for a scholarship, and even with the loan given, I still have to bear the cost of living in London.
This clearly shows the Government does not appreciate talent. Is this how it plans to deal with the serious problem of brain drain?
