Malaysia’s Quest International University (QIU), a comprehensive private institute of higher learning, is offering a diverse range of unique educational opportunities to the people of Sri Lanka. Based in Ipoh, Perak, QIU offers foundation, diploma, bachelor’s degree, and postgraduate programmes that cover disciplines in medicine, pharmacy, business and management, life sciences, computing, engineering, culinary arts, social sciences, and many more. The university sets itself apart by committing to a hands-on, experiential learning process. Students learn by doing, as a method of augmenting the theoretical aspect of their field. This principle is supported by a diverse selection of industry advisors, adjunct academics, and partnerships with industry and corporate partners. These experts provide insights and input into our curricula, incorporating the latest innovations and advancements in their field.
QIU Chief Operating Officer Nicholas Goh said: “In today’s world, the theory you learn as a freshman may be redundant once you graduate. We believe in pedagogy that is constantly updated to mirror changes that are happening in the real world. This gives our graduates an advantage because their hands-on experience will help them hit the ground running when they enter the job market.” “The university is also committed to the principle of leaving no student behind. If a student faces any difficulties during their time at QIU, we have instituted support systems that will help them improve. This includes extra guidance from lecturers, peer-assisted study sessions, and assistance with time management and goal setting. We go beyond teaching; we are here to ensure that our students learn.” We have proudly welcomed some of Sri Lanka’s talented students to QIU since 2017.
Our Sri Lankan joiners have signed up for a wide range of courses, ranging from life sciences programmes like biotechnology to business and arts programmes like hospitality, tourism, advertising, and MBA. At our Faculty of Medicine, four batches of Sri Lankan doctors-to-be are set to graduate in 2024. They will be valuable assets to the medical field in Sri Lanka, healing, saving lives, and helping the people of their country achieve good health. Medical students at QIU can also practise overseas, as our programme is recognised by numerous medical councils around the region. At the same time, they have the chance to specialise and practice in the United States because our syllabus incorporates United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) training. QIU’s overarching goal is to create well-rounded students—equipped with the right knowledge, attitude, work ethic, skills, and university experience to make them truly future-ready.
