 The Australian tertiary education minister Senator Chris Evans has signed a memorandum of understanding with Malaysian higher education minister Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled Nordin. The bond will strengthen education ties between the two countries. The memorandum was signed in Perth at Curtin University to develop higher education sectors.

The MoU reflects Australia and Malaysia’s joint commitment to increasing collaboration and policy dialogue on higher education issues. The partnership through education, research and training will help both nations to be placed in Asian century.

Evans said Malaysia was a significant partner for Australia, considering the large number of Malaysian students at universities in Australia, the strong history of cooperation on education issues and Malaysia’s place in the Asean grouping.

The MoU will make an attempt to help youngsters of Australia to participate in a deepening commitment with Asia.

For a long time Malaysian students have enjoyed educational opportunities here in Australia and at Australian university campuses in Malaysia but student mobility must go both ways, Evans said.

“The next generation of Australian leaders will need to be increasingly Asian-literate and these are skills best learnt by experiencing Asia first-hand”. Bernama said that this alliance will aim to have a larger number of Australians undertaking study internships or practical placements as part of their degree or course in an Asian country by 2025.

Through this program Australia will support thousands of Australian students to enjoy the experience of living and studying in Asia.

The initiative will provide a world of opportunities. Let’s hope for the best that these prospects should be benefited for both nations.

Good Luck!!
