Meanwhile Prof Dato’ Haji Abdul Murad stated that the MoA will make it possible for more working adults to “further their studies through a unique distance learning approach” and gain tertiary qualifications.
East West College has been tasked to represent and support WOU by providing counselling advice to prospective students so as to facilitate their enrolment. Through this joint collaboration, the university therefore aims to seek out a larger segment of the Malaysian workforce and give them the opportunity to pursue higher learning.
The MoA – which took effect on 1 May 2010 – will cover the promotion of all programmes offered at the University as well as new programmes introduced in the future.
The KLRO is also supported by another SAP located in Kepong, that is, the Metro Prime International College. Appointment of other SAPs are being made to support WOU’s regional offices nationwide.
