The Higher Education Expo 2024 will be held for students looking to further their studies
domestically where university representatives will receive visitors during the Higher Education Expo 2024 at Bridex Hall, Jerudong from February 3-4.

Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) will also hold its open day from February 3-4.

“UBD stands poised to be a key driver for sustainable development in Brunei in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). The university is committed to ensuring that staff and students develop the knowledge and habits that promote a sustainable lifestyle,” said the university.

It continued, “UBD continues to make a significant mark on the Sultanate and the world with knowledgeable and skilled graduates as well as impactful research.

“What sets UBD apart is also its accredited programmes. The Bachelor in General Engineering programme achieved the prestigious accreditation by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET), making it the first of its kind in Brunei. Last year, UBD School of Business and Economics (UBD SBE) was awarded the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) Accreditation.”
