KUCHING: Masterskill College will hold four open days at its new flagship metro campus from tomorrow (Dec 9).
The public can tour the yet to be open campus, located at Batu Kawa, as well as learn more about Masterskill College’s programmes from 10am to 3pm daily.
There would also be daily career talks on allied health from 10.30am to 12 noon (first session) and 1.30pm to 3pm (second session) as well as fee counselling.
Masterskill College assistant marketing manager Tony Tan said school leavers will have ample opportunity to discover what Masterskill has in store for them.
He said Form 5 and Form 6 school leavers would be given a Masterskill starter pack containing all the information needed to get a head start in nursing and allied health education.
“We welcome students who sat for their SPM this year to our open day. Come with forecast result of minimum five credits including Bahasa Malaysia, Mathematics and Science and at least a pass in English,” he told a press conference at the new campus yesterday.
He said those eligible would receive their offer letter straight away so instead of the normal waiting period of about three months before getting their SPM results, school leavers could save up to one semester if they start their course next month.
Those registering during the open day for the 2010 enrolment would also receive a notebook and financial assistance in the form of PTPTN loan as well as Masterskill Foundation scholarship are available.
Accommodation, daily transportation and uniform are free for students during the duration of their studies with Masterskill.
Meanwhile, Maxis Communications Berhad will be the main sponsor for the open day and all new enrolments would receive premium gifts.
Maxis would also launch its latest student plan, which promises the lowest call and short-text-messaging rates in the market.
In a press release, Masterskill Education Berhad group chief executive officer Datuk Edmund Santhara said it has great plans for the Sarawak campus.
