NILAI, Sept 22 (Bernama) -- Kolej Uniti, Port Dickson, has signed a

memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Kolej Jaiputra, Kota Baharu, to share

experience and expertise.

This to strengthen both colleges in facing the increasing competition from

other institutions of higher learning (IPTS).

Kolej Uniti was represented by its chief operations officer Jamal

Mohd Amin at the signing ceremony and Kolej Jaiputra also by its chief

operations officer, Wan Subki Wan Salleh.

Jamal said the move by the two colleges is a preliminary move to embrace the

call by the government for the IPTS to cooperate and share resources to

strengthen their respective capabilities.

"This is an important strategy and Kolej Uniti hopes this initiative will

pave the way for more opportunities to network among IPTS overseas.

"The cooperation will strengthen the ability of the college, especially in

emphasising on the aspects of quality and innovation. This is also from the

point of infrastructure facilities, teaching workforce, programmes offered,

governance system and as such," he told reporters after the MoU signing ceremony

here today.

Jamal said the cooperation was also based on a "win-win" situation and for a

start, both colleges have agreed to market their respective programmes.

"I hope that following this start, we can find other areas of cooperation

and in the process, contribute to the government''s efforts to make Malaysia an

excellence hub for the IPTS," he added.

He said the cooperation will begin with the intake of students for the

December 2011 session.

Wan Subki expressed the hope that the cooperation will give rise to

Bumiputera colleges which can effectively compete with others.

He also said Kolej Jaiputra plans to expand its enrollment of students from

countries such as Sri Lanka, China and the Philippines.

"At present the overseas students at the college are from Cambodia, Vietnam,

Indonesia and Singapore. Kolej Jaiputra offers diploma level courses in

management, Islamic studies and psychology," he added.

Both Kolej Uniti and Kolej Jaiputra as Bumiputera colleges, were established

in 1997 and have to date produced about 4,000 graduates.
