Studying in Malaysia

Dubbed a "Mini Asia", Malaysia is a melting pot of culture and religion. Its population is made up of various races such as Malays, Chinese, Indians, Dayaks, and Kadazans, all living and working with each other in harmony.

Islam is the official religion of the nation. However, the Malaysian Constitution guarantees freedom of worship, and as such, Malaysians embrace other religions, such as Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism.

Malaysia is one of the most prosperous and progressive countries in the world. Malaysia was ranked 10th in the 2010 World Competitiveness Yearbook by the International Institute of Management Development (IMD), 26th in the 2010 Global Competitiveness Report by the World Economic Forum, and No. 35 on the KOF Index of Globalization. Our student and education fees are also some of the most affordable in the world.

Malaysia has a pleasant tropical climate and is generally warm all the year round with temperatures ranging from 21°C to 32°C. The general weather is humid with annual rainfall varying from 2,000mm to 2,500mm. Malaysia also has many tourism locations and attractions available all year round.
