Being one of the most vibrant countries in Southeast Asia, there is no doubt we are proud to have Malaysia as our study destination. The rich culture, amazing food, bustling metropolises, lush green tropics, amazing shopping and dirt-cheap prices, are a few reasons why Malaysia has earned the slogan ”Truly Asia”. Here are Fabian’s top 5 reasons why you should study in Malaysia

Studies in Malaysia will give you a better understanding on Asia’s growing importance in today’s globalized world.

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. Studies in Malaysia will give you a better understanding on Asia’s growing importance in today’s globalized world.

Malaysia is quickly becoming a top study destination for students from all over the world!

Great Universities
Malaysian universities are getting better and better. Asia Exchanges partner university, Universiti Putra Malaysia is ranked as the second best university in Malaysia (Times Higher Education 2016) and acknowledged among the top 400 universities in the world (QS World Ranking, place 376).  Located in Kuala Lumpur, students gain a top-notch education and the experience of living in a modern, wonderfully varied metropolis.

Universiti Putra Malaysia is ranked as the second best university in Malaysia.

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.

Malaysians understand and speak English very well. However, they will  appreciate a lot if you try to communicate with them in their own language.

High Quality of Life at Low Cost
Western students are often amazed by how low living expenses in Malaysia are. In Malaysia you get high quality of life at a low cost. As an international student you have the chance to live comfortably with just about 1100 MYR a month, inclusive of food, accommodation and other daily expenses. Swimming pools are not a rare sight. Interested in affordable five-star hotel luxury accommodation even as a student? In Malaysia it is possible! 

In Malaysia you can live a luxurious life for very little money.

Culture and Diversity
Malaysia is a country of contrasts and surprises, a bubbly blend of people and ideologies. The laid-back, friendly Malaysians love to socialize and welcome you to their country with a smile. The stunning variety of attractions and free-time activities in the thrilling metropolitan area of Kuala Lumpur and the natural wonders of Malaysia such as Langkawi, Taman Negara and Cameron Highlands ensure you will never run out of things to see and do.

Taman Negara is the world´s oldest rainforest, a must to visit when you are in Malaysia.
