An excerpt from "Students flock to Maktab Duli for UK study options" by The Brunei Times.

STUDENTS looking to further their studies flocked to the Duli Pengiran Muda Al-Muhtadee Billah College (Maktab Duli) ... to sort out their options at the Education UK Exhibition.

Thirty-six educational institutions along with CfBT Education Services and the Ministry of Education's Scholarship Section participated in the exhibition at the college's auditorium to provide guidance and assistance to students.

The Brunei Times caught up with a few students receiving consultation at the exhibition to find out their educational plans.

An upper-six student from Maktab Duli, Abdul Khair, said that while he would be sitting for his A' Level exams at the end of the year, he was browsing through the exhibition to set a goal for him to achieve.

"I'm not quite sure what university or course I'd like to take but now I'm interested in taking a degree in International Relations. The United Kingdom is a tempting country to study in," said the 17 year old who said that the UK would be a good studying and living experience

Two friends 18-year-old Nur Nadidi Kifli and 19-year-old Aminatul Izzati Hj Othman were looking for potential universities to study in as they had just received favourable results for their recent A' Level examinations.

"I want to experience another country because I have never been to the UK. I want to try my luck there," said Nur Nadidi who is interested in taking a degree in Sports Science.

"As of now, my top university would be Liverpool John Moores University. There's a course there I'm really interested in," said the aspiring sports scientist who hoped that she would be able to help Brunei sports to reach an international level in the future.

Aminatul Izzati said that she plans on taking a degree in Financial Mathematics then continuing her studies to a postgraduate level so she can provide appropriate assistance to the government.

About the Editor

new about me profI am a born and bred Bruneian who lived and worked in Australia for over 10 years. I am now based in Brunei. Having spent time away from Brunei, I have learnt that, to know a country is to know the people. To truly appreciate a new place is to see it through their eyes, to listen to their stories, to taste, smell, do and feel as they do.

Everyone has a Story, and this blog - Projek Brunei, features the stories, music, photography and art of locals and of people who have lived or worked in Brunei before. Join me on this project, a project to discover and rediscover this country they call the Abode of Peace, the Heart of Borneo, this place they call the Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures...through the stories of the People.

You may know me by my online moniker, @BruneiTweet. I created BruneiTweet in 2009, and currently (October 2016), I have over 30,000 followers. I am passionate about community, and use social media to connect with people - both on and offline.

I have an MBA, a keen interest in business-development and marketing, and I am a three-time TEDx speaker. I believe in the power of social media and collaboration. I have worked alongside corporate organisations on various community projects. Some highlights from my journey to date: In 2011, I co-organised Twestival Brunei to raise awareness and funds for Brunei’s Child Development Centre. That year I also organised Convergence, Brunei’s first youth led leadership forum. In 2012, I co-organised Movember to raise awareness on men's health issues. In 2013, I participated at various forums including Brunei's National Environment Conference and the ASEAN Social Media Exchange in Thailand. In 2014, I was selected to represent Brunei at the Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Programme. In 2015, I was involved as a panel moderator in an International Women's Day event, and was invited to speak at the Green Leaders Eco-Camp in Brunei about using social media with purpose.
 
But enough about me.
