Uni students except in Sarawak allowed to go home for Raya


More than 100,000 students at higher learning institutions who are currently on campus have been allowed to return to their homes for the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays, except for those in Sarawak.

The Higher Education Ministry in a statement today said this was decided at a special meeting yesterday by the National Security Council (NSC).

According to the statement, students are allowed to go home in stages from May 7 to 12 while their return to campus would be from May 15 to 20.

“The movement of students in conjunction with the Aidilfitri holidays is estimated to only involve 103,994 students who are now on campus, out of a total of 1.3 million students. These students are composed of six categories that were previously allowed to undergo teaching and learning sessions on campus.

“Students are given a choice of whether to return to their homes or to remain on campus during the holidays. This approval is in line with the previous relaxation given by the NSC for the education sector,” it said.

The statement said students are allowed to use only three modes of transport - their own vehicles, buses coordinated by their learning institution, or being picked up by parents or guardians.

However, movement using public transportation is not allowed except for flights.

It said approval letters for interstate or inter-district travel, as well as the dates for the trips, would be provided by their learning institutions.

Students and parents can refer to the standard operating procedures for this on the Higher Education Ministry's official portal at www.mohe.gov.my.

"For enquiries, students can contact the coordinating officers at their respective learning institutions or the Higher Education Ministry's Operations Room at 03-8870 6777/6949/6623/6628," it said.
