Scholarship students set to continue studies in China

Some 26 scholarship students headed to Lanzhou Petrochemical University of Vocational Technology (Lanzhou) in China on Tuesday as part of their studies under the Hengyi Industries Sdn Bhd and Institute of Brunei Technical Education (IBTE) Joint Scholarship Programme.

Originally scheduled for late last year, the study in Lanzhou was deferred due to the challenges by the COVID-19 pandemic. The students instead engaged in online classes with Lanzhou.

Scholarship recipient Shaiful Amiruddin bin Rasid said, “I believe that studying abroad is a great chance for me to experience new things and culture.

“It’s also certainly a big opportunity for us to hone our career-specific skills, by making use of the facilities at Lanzhou.”

Siti Nadhirah binti Haji Norman said, “It’s quite exciting and challenging at the same time because we will be away from our parents.

“But, it’s a great opportunity to be independent and improve our social communication.”

The Hengyi Industries and IBTE Joint Scholarship Programme offers the recipients a three-year diploma in refinery operator, where they will undergo a year of academic study at IBTE Jefri Bolkiah Campus, followed by a year of study abroad at Lanzhou.

In the final year, they will undergo on-the-job training with Hengyi Industries at Pulau Muara Besar.

Upon completion and graduation of the programme, the students are expected to join Hengyi Industries and begin their career in the petrochemical industry.
