Normal University and three national universities of technology is commencing Nov. 4 a three-day student recruitment tour of high schools in Malaysia.
Led by NTU president Yang Pan-chyr, the group also includes the heads of the four other participating tertiary institutions. It will introduce the courses, equipment, facilities and staff of the universities during visits to Chong Hwa Independent High School and Tsun Jin High School, both in Kuala Lumpur, and Hin Hua High School in Klang, a city southwest of the Malaysian capital.
