Over the last few years, Malaysia has become one of the most popular destination for students to pursue their tertiary education. Recent statistics show that there are over 40,000 international students from more than 100 countries studying in “Truly Asia”. Here are some reasons why Malaysia should be your destination for your higher education needs.

  1. The quality of education is very closely monitored by the Malaysian Government to ensure that the highest level of education is provided to the students and that the degrees pursued are internationally recognized.
  2. The cost of living and tuition fees are lower than in the United States, United Kingdom or Australia. Additionally, there is the opportunity to start in Malaysia and then move to another country after due to the fact that most universities are affiliated to another university in Europe, the US or Australia.
  3. Malaysia is a relative peaceful country where the standard of living is high standard of living. In addition the weather is comfortable with no extreme temperatures.
  4. Malaysia is renowed for the variety of food and diversity in the different types of cuisine available. If the quality of life or level of education did not convince you to go there, the food certainly will.

A student can get by living comfortably for about RM10,000 a year (USD3,300). Furthermore the ringgit value is low compared to other currency and this gives students enormous savings while studying in Malaysia.
