With over three decades of experience in international education and accounts for 2% of the international student population around the world, many foreign students have found Malaysia to be the ideal choice to obtain a high-quality, internationally-recognised degree.
Malaysia is currently ranked the world’s 11th most preferred study destination by UNESCO and the country currently has close to 100,000 international students pursuing courses that range from English language programmes and diplomas to degrees and post-graduate studies at private higher educational institutions, foreign university branch campuses and public universities.
In order to ensure all institutions adhere to the highest standards, Malaysia’s Ministry of Higher Education has established the Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS) with the main objective of promoting Malaysia as a global education destination providing high quality education programmes that are on par with international standards. EMGS helps in research and development in the field of education while facilitating better students’ interaction, expedite foreign student visa application and processing, and all aspects related to education.
Malaysia has the lowest education cost based on a recent comparison of education cost between Malaysia and other advanced countries such as Canada, Australia, USA, UK and Singapore.
