Then, I checked that university has scholarship for prospective student however it’s quite late. But i tried to contact them to ask about the scholarship. I sent email to them if I can apply the UM high potential scholarship or not and this is their answer on 14 march 2012.
Dear Hani sulastri hamid,
We are pleased to see that you are admissible for the master’s programme Globalisation and Development Studies.
However the deadline for the High Potential Scholarship has passed and we cannot make any exceptions to the rule.
So my advice..if you want to apply the scholarship, you should make sure you apply the university as soon as possible. It’s better if you you have the announcement of the admission sooner. Look at the deadline of the scholarship.. At that time, I didnt see about the scholarship , so i missed my chance.
Good luck 🙂
