The Star, 10 July 2000

KUALA LUMPUR: Lycos Asia announced on Friday a co-branding partnership with two premier educational sites, http://www.studymalaysia.com and http://www.studyusa.net. Lycos Asia country director for Malaysia Ralph Lim said the co-branding will greatly enhance Lycos Asia's educational channel for local and international students and the education community. "With Malaysia being an increasingly preferred choice for education among neighbouring countries, these sites will provide instant access to resources and information for potential students in the region,'' he said in a statement issued by the company. Studymalaysia.com, developed by Challenger Concept (M) Sdn Bhd, is an online guide for individuals studying and living in Malaysia, and provides a reference resource and activities centre for the Malaysian education community.Its contents include a comprehensive higher education course and profile listing of both private and public higher educational institutions in Malaysia. Students can also check out the latest scholarship offered and other financing possibilities like study loans and trust funds.For students and parents who want to know more about the education industry in Malaysia, there are writes-ups featuring articles on LAN, the Malaysian education system, methods in obtaining a recognised degree, who's who in the education industry, an events calendar as well as a special section dedicated to foreign students. It also features a forum and helpdesk for students, parents and lecturers to post questions, give suggestions and interact with fellow students.Students interested in studying in the United States should check out studyusa.net, developed by Reality Bridge Sdn Bhd.It offers complete information about living in the United States and details of American universities and colleges. It also covers application procedures and includes advice on travel, financial assistance, visa applications, TOEFL, SAT, hints on studying, taking exams and getting better grades, employment information and opportunities, and ongoing services related to career and personal development. Lycos Asia is continuously seeking partnership with local content providers that can provide high quality content and is confident that both local and foreign students will find studymalaysia.com and studyusa.net most useful in meeting their educational needs, the company said. Lycos Asia was formed in September 1999 to deliver localised versions of Lycos.com, Tripod, MailCity (Lycosbox in Greater China) and other services to more than 10 Asian markets.In addition to its sites currently in operation in Singapore, Malaysia, China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, more localised sites will be launched later this year.
