Reasons to Study in Malaysia
Malaysia’s education system is getting better by the day. It is fast developing into one of the best destinations for higher education for international students. One of the biggest benefits that Malaysia offers to international students is world education. Malaysia spends a major part of its higher education investments in growing and strengthening partnerships with foreign universities. A number of foreign universities from Australia, the UK and the USA have already opened up branches in Malaysia. The degrees earned from these branches carry the same weight as that of the main campus in Australia, the UK and the US. Some universities are ranked in the top 100 universities across the world. In spite of these remarkable developments in the field of higher education, the university costs remain low.
At the same time, it becomes very easy for the international students to study at some of the best universities in the world at a reduced cost. An undergraduate course from the main campus of the UK university will cost approximately £13,470. On the other hand, the same course from the Malaysia campus will cost less than £7,000 on an average. Most importantly, there is no difference between the two courses whatsoever. The content of the course will also be the same. The exact same evaluation criteria and marking schemes is applied to both campuses. The only significant difference is the cost. Moreover, living expenses and other costs is also lower in Malaysia when compared to other countries. Malaysia is completely multicultural in nature with its citizens hailing from different ethnicities. Around half of the population is native Malay while the rest of them are Chinese and Indians. Malay may be the official language of Malaysia but English is widely recognized and spoken in the country. This multicultural nature of the country makes it easier for the international students to adjust to a new life in Malaysia. Students can enrich themselves with not only excellent education but also the experiences of various cultures and facets of the country. As many industries in Malaysia are developing at a rapid pace, there are huge opportunities for part time jobs for international students.
