Higher Education in Malaysia

Malaysian higher education system offers you an international qualification of your choice within an affordable budget. At the beginning of 2011, there were more than 80,000 international students from more than 100 countries studying in Malaysia. These students are pursing courses ranging from diplomas, degrees, masters to PhDs at universities, colleges and foreign university branch campuses. This demonstrates the confidence of students from across the globe in choosing Malaysia as a preferred destination for acquiring an academic qualification.

Malaysian universities offer a wide range of internationally recognized qualifications. Since the early 80s, Malaysia has collaborated with reputable universities from countries like United Kingdom, United States of America, New Zealand, Canada and Australia to develop its own internationally recognized qualifications. The collaborated programmes are offered to students to complete their studies in Malaysia without the need of going to any of the foreign country to gain the degree or with options such as studying two years in Malaysia and the final year at the collaborated university. Two main known programmes are the two plus one (2+1) and three plus zero (3+0) degree programmes.

The (2+1) twinning programmes partnering with reputable international universities from countries such as UK, Australia, USA, Canada and New Zealand are offered in Malaysia, students can study the first two years in Malaysia and the final year at the respective university, like for example in England. The twinning degree arrangement offers substantial saving in tuition fees and living cost compared when you do the entire 3-year degree in England.

Meanwhile the 3+0 bachelor's degree programme allows you to complete the entire three years of study in Malaysia. Under the 3+0 arrangement, bachelor's degree programmes from partnering foreign universities are conducted by Malaysian private universities and colleges, and upon successful completion of the programme the degree will be awarded under the partnering university’s name.

Apart from the above international programs, local universities and colleges offer a wide range of diploma and degree programmes which is well recognized worldwide. The programmes are quality monitored by the Malaysian Higher Education Ministry and taught by highly qualified international and local lecturers. Students graduating with locally developed qualifications can pursue their postgraduate studies in Malaysia as well as in other foreign countries as these qualifications are regconised internationally.
