KUCHING – An excellent 5 Star rating recently received by SEGi College Sarawak in MOHE MyQuest Evaluation is a testimonial for its commitment in delivering quality education by meeting the high standards as set out by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia (MOHE).

The Malaysian Quality Evaluation System for Private Colleges (MyQuest) was launched by the Minister of Higher Education, Datuk Seri Mohamed Khalid Nordin in January as an instrument to evaluate the current performance of private collages in Malaysia in terms of students, programmes, graduates, resources and governance - with the aim of encouraging private colleges to elevate their education standards.
“We are very honoured to be rated 5 stars and recognized as the top 23 colleges in Malaysia” said SEGi College Sarawak Principal, Mdm. Stella Lau.
“This recognition attests to the hard work and commitment of our staff and their focus in delivering quality services and workmanship”.
