Free tuition for Palestinian students at public universities

Tuition fees for more than 600 Palestinian students studying at public universities in Malaysia will be waived for one year with immediate effect, Malaysia’s Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin announced, reports Bernama.

He said the Higher Education Ministry will also hold talks with private universities to waive the fees for more than 200 Palestinian students studying at these institutions for one year.

“We are also considering providing monthly allowances to all 800 Palestinian students (both in public and private universities) in Malaysia for the same period which would cost about RM20 million [US$4 million],” he told a press conference after opening the Global Higher Education Forum 2023. Mohamed Khaled said details on the tuition fee waiver and monthly allowances would be announced soon.
