THINK QUALITY, THINK KDU! KDU College Penang celebrates 22 years of quality education by awarding RM2 Million worth of scholarships for 2013

Turning 22 could be one of the best years yet for KDU Penang...after all, it's not every day you turn 22. In 1991, KDU College Penang which is part of the KDU Education Group opened its doors in the northern region to 350 students, giving them the opportunity to further their education at tertiary beyond the confines of public higher education institutions.

Since then the KDU Penang has grown leaps and bounds with more than 20,000 enrolled till today. Over the years, this Penang education giant has built a strong reputation for itself starting with its strong academic yet industry relevant curriculum, to its high-quality long serving lecturers and industry-standard facilities, as well as its undeniable superior learning experiences. Its quest in giving the best to its students and the superior employability of its graduates is proven with KDU Penang being one of only two private higher education institutions in Penang being conferred a complete 5-star rating from MOHE's MyQuest Audit in 2011. The recognition of this quality was further amplified by the public's confidence in KDU Penang's programs with its record enrolment year in 2012.

Enrolment numbers alone however do not measure the height of our success as KDU Penang's Marketing & Communications Manager, Mr. Neoh Soon Ken further reiterated by saying, "We are extremely happy with 2012 being our record enrolment year but it is the continued success of our graduates in gaining access to international universities easily as well as the strong employability of our graduates in the industry every year. Our strong industry collaborations and alumni connections have put us on the world map, and the students of KDU are reaping the rewards today with countless dreams being achieved every day".

For this KDU Penang will continue with its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives which also involves the generous awarding of scholarships to deserving students all over the northern region. A total of RM 2 Million worth of scholarships will be available for students with SPM results beginning from 1A and above. This is goes well with the college's scholarship policy of increasing the availability of its scholarships to more students from a list of wide ranging results and interested future KDU students can even begin to apply for the scholarships now with their 2012 SPM trial examination results. KDU's popular early bird 'Cash Back' promotion is also back and SPM 2012 school leavers who register for KDU's January 2013 intakes before 1 December 2012 will be entitled RM1000 cash back on their tuition fees and the best part is that it will be on top of whichever scholarship amount they are entitled for. Terms and conditions apply so interested applicants are advised to apply early to avoid disappointment.

Prospective students will also be glad to know that the KDU Penang Open Day is coming soon and it scheduled for the 15th and 16th of December 2012 from 10AM to 6PM after its usual INFO DAY the week before on the 8th and 9th. There will be RM400 worth of application and registration fee waivers for those who sign up on the spot during the Open Day as well as a special YONEX badminton racquet which is autographed by KDU's very own Brand Ambassador Dato' Lee Chong Wei for the first 20 applicants. Visitors to our Open Day will also get the chance to explore our industry standard facilities such as the Games Design Laboratory and Lounge, Bon Appetite Restaurant, Gymnasium, Recording Studio, Lecture Theatres, Art Gallery and much more. A Design workshop for budding design students will also be conducted on that day so it's definitely a treat for students who are looking to go into the design industry next time.

KDU Penang is always committed to our promise to provide a good and honest education. Our staff continues to hear commendations from our alumni about the positive impact their KDU education has had on their life, both personally and professionally. So make the right choice this December and make yourself available for the KDU College Penang Campus Open Day this 15th & 16th of December 2012. Come join the KDU Family! We are looking forward to welcome you!
