Study in Malaysia

Malaysia is a diverse tropical country that is split into two sides known as Peninsular Malaysia and Malaysian Borneo (East Malaysia) by the South China Sea. Its blend of Malay, Chinese and Indian ethnic groups exhibits a kaleidoscope of colors and cuisines, making for a distinctly varied culture.

Kuala Lumpur, the most populous city in Malaysia, is located on Peninsular Malaysia about a five-hour bus ride north of Singapore. This spread-out city constantly on the rise is ornamented with many mosques and colonial British- and Moor-influenced buildings that remind trendsetting city-goers of its colorful past.

Malaysia at a Glance:

Malaysia takes pride in being one of the world’s largest exporters of palm oil, natural rubber, natural gas, timber, cocoa beans and pepper. It is also one of the leading exporters of manufactured products such as semiconductors, audio-visual products, electrical goods, rubber-dipped products and oleo chemicals in the world.

Education is another growing industry where Malaysia is gaining acceptance as a reputable study destination in the region. The education sector offers a variety of higher educational programmes as well as professional and specialised skill courses that are competitively priced and of excellent quality. Underlying this is the current trend of setting up branch campuses in Malaysia by reputable universities from the UK and Australia. Furthermore, various universities from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, France, Germany and New Zealand are offering twinning, franchised and external degree programmes in partnership with Malaysian educational institutions.
