About Malaysia

Malaysia is a beautiful and diverse country with many highlights. The many different regions, each with their own characteristic features, make this country the perfect destination for tourists. However, Malaysia does not entirely depend on tourism. This country's economy has been going strong for years. On the contrary to what some people (still) believe, Malaysia is not a third world country. The country has developed itself enormously in the past 50 years and this is clearly noticeable when visiting it. Especially in Malaysia's capital, Kuala Lumpur, you will see many modern buildings, a modern light rail transit system, many luxurious shopping malls and countless expensive cars on the roads. Life outside of the capital is often less developed; but even there the times of people only being able to afford a motorcycle are long gone.
Malaysia has become a favorite destination for tertiary education with over 40,000 international students from over 100 countries studying in Malaysia. Malaysia has become centre of academic and higher education excellence due to number of reasons. The Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA) provides guidelines and constant monitoring to ensure colleges and universities meet the highest standards in education and are internationally recognized.
Courses offered are up-to-date and market relevant. With career-focused education, graduates from Malaysia have no problems seeking employment back in their home country. Besides, there are accredited degrees from various choices of world-renowned universities from USA, UK, Australia, Canada through their twining programs or branch campuses in Malaysia.
