Fresh out of secondary school, many of us are overwhelmed by the choices we have to make. Should we enrol in a public education institution or a private one? Should we sign up for this course or that? There are so many options to consider yet so little time before we have to decide.
Luckily for me, friends and family were eager to provide assistance and advice. That was how I came to find out about KDU College and its reputation for quality education. After consulting a student advisor, I was sure that this was the right path for me.
However, there is another obstacle in my way. A pre-university and degree programme would prove to be a too costly for my parents. Given the high cost of tertiary education and my parents having to financially support not only my sister and myself, but also my grandparents, I was naturally in a dilemma on whether I should enroll in such a prestigious course. Fortunately for me, KDU College recognises that money shouldn’t be a barrier for education and generously awarded me the Principal Scholarship upon my enrolment. As the Principal Scholarship covers the tuition fees for the entire program, this award has definitely lightened the financial burdens of my parents.
