KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 5 (KUNA) -- Assistant Undersecretary of scholarships and cultural relations affairs at the Ministry of Higher Education Maysara Jassim Al-Falah expressed on Thursday Kuwait's eagerness to boost bilateral cooperation with Malaysia in the educational field, especially in student scholarship exchanges and academic accreditation.
A Kuwaiti joint delegation consisted of Ministry of Higher Education and Ministry of Health paid a visit to Penang Medical College (PMC) in Penang, where they viewed training measures mechanisms at the college, as well as the facilitations and services offered by PMC.
Al-Falah told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the Kuwaiti delegation held several meetings with the college's officials.
She added that the delegation had also visited the college's affiliated hospital and medical center, in which they viewed all departments and health facilities, noting that they met with many students in their training sessions at the college's hospital, and became acquainted with students activities closely.
Al-Falah said that the Ministry of Higher Education sends many medical students to several countries such as Ireland, U.S., U.K., Arab and Gulf countries, adding that the ministry is currently looking forward to sending its students to Asian countries such as Malaysia, Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, and China.
In addition, Many Kuwaiti students are currently studying in Malaysian universities and colleges, sponsored by the Civil Service Commission (CSC) while other study at their own expense, Al-Falah pointed out, noting that the Malaysian general environment is very suitable for Gulf students in general and Kuwaitis in particular since it is a conservative environment.
In the same context, Kuwaiti Ambassador to Malaysia Saad Al-Asousi stated to KUNA that the visit of the joint delegation comes within the Embassy's efforts in implementing several agreements between Kuwait and Malaysia in the higher education and cultural cooperation fields, especially since Malaysia hosts over 350 Kuwaiti students who study in six universities.
