in Latest

KUALA LUMPUR: The medical student to lecturer ratio will be relaxed to accommodate the placement of students from the Allianze Univeristy College of Medical Sciences.

Education Minister II, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said the present one lecturer to four students will be increased to 1:8, a one-off exemption set by the Malaysian Medical Council.

Earlier this year, students from the medical college were stranded when classes were disrupted after disgruntled lecturers, who had not been paid stopped showing up for work.

The students had tried continuing their studies at other private institutions of higher learning, but could not due to the student to lecturer ratio issues.-NST
