Uni uses Man United to attract Malaysian students

Two young Malaysians are flying over to watch Manchester United take on Chelsea this Sunday after winning a competition with The University of Manchester. Mooi Yen Nian, 25, a Senior Executive at Bank Negara, and 23-year-old management trainee Aileen Wang Jin Jen will enjoy box seats for the biggest game of the season so far as well as receiving signed United shirts. During their visit, the pair will also tour the University and the Manchester Museum. Manchester is one of the UK's most popular destinations for Malaysian students, with more than 450 students registered at the University of Manchester last year.

To win this unforgettable trip, the pair entered a contest arranged by the University and the British Council during the Education UK Exhibition held in Malaysia earlier this year. Mooi said: "This is a dream come true for me; I was particularly interested in a postgraduate course at The University of Manchester but now this is a once in a lifetime experience I will never forget." Wang said: "I hadn't planned to enter a contest while at the exhibition as I was interested in learning more about further study in the UK, but I decided to give it a go." Runners up received exclusive Manchester United merchandise signed by the first team.
