Education Destination Malaysia: Guide to International & Private Schools is the official publication of the Private & International School Fairs in Malaysia organised by Mint Communications.

Since the quota for Malaysian students in international schools was lifted in 2012, Malaysian parents are beginning to explore the option of sending their children to international schools.

Therefore, there was a need to have a fair that focused solely on bringing together private and international schools in one location in order for parents to find out more about educational options in these schools. Furthermore, there is a growing expatriate community in Malaysia who want quality education for their children.

These fairs aim to provide the ideal platform for schools to meet with parents, and for parents to find a suitable school for their children in three strategic locations: Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Johor.

A major advantage of visiting the fair is that parents will be able to meet with representatives, including principals and teachers, from these schools, and compare curriculum, fees, and facilities among others, and find a suitable school for their children, at one central and convenient location.

They will be able to meet representatives from many schools in one location during the fair. When parents find a suitable school during the fair, they can then pay the school a visit. This will save time and effort.

Our recent fair took place at Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Iskandar Puteri on 6 October.

Upcoming fairs for 2018 include the fair in Penang on 14 October at The Olive Tree Hotel followed by the last fair for the year in Kuala Lumpur on 3-4 November at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre.

Visitors will also be able to get a copy of the Education Destination Malaysia: Guide to International & Private Schools during these fairs.
