Why study in Malaysia?
Malaysia’s international education sector has grown tremendously in the last decade and the country is fast becoming a centre of educational excellence in South East Asia. Malaysia is currently the world’s 11th most preferred study abroad destination. According to UNESCO, Malaysia has captured a 2% market share of international students in the fast growing private education sector. Malaysia currently has more than 80,000 international students from more than 100 countries. International students enjoy a safe and comfortable living environment with 21st century amenities, good healthcare and medical facilities, excellent educational institutions, and world-class recreational and sports facilities. Malaysia offers international students many options of quality education programmes at an affordable cost.
In addition, Malaysia is becoming a preferred country for foreign investment in the higher education sector. There are many foreign university branch campuses in Malaysia at present and more are expected to be established in the near future. The government welcomes foreign universities to establish branch campuses in Malaysia, particularly in Iskandar Malaysia’s EduCity in Nusajaya (Johor) and Kuala Lumpur Education City (KLEC). Due to all these reasons, students want to study in Malaysia to further their dreams.
Malaysia is Asia’s Emerging Higher Education Hub
Malaysia is quickly becoming a top study destination for students from all over the world, ranking 9th on UNESCO’s top countries for international students in 2015. Studying in Malaysia will give you a better understanding of Asia’s growing importance in today’s globalized world.
No language Barrier
The official and national language of Malaysia is Malaysian, which is a standardized form of the Malay language. However, since the majority of the people in Malaysia understand and speak English very well, there is no crucial need for you to master the Malaysian language. A semester or two in Malaysia gives you a great opportunity to improve your English skills.
