With No Support From Govt, Private Higher Education Must Go It Alone

Lockdowns and a pandemic have left both students and teachers in the lurch, trying to adapt to online learning and with no certainty of when national exams will take place.

To find out, we speak to Geoffrey Williams, Professor at the Malaysia University of Science and Technology, and a frequent commentator on issues surrounding the education sector.
