From unparalleled city planning redefining the term “urban oasis” to its breathtaking superiority in all things tech, Malaysia has earned the title of the "World's Most Affordable City" by CNN. International candidates who aspire to study in Malaysia will have the experience of a lifetime while laying the groundwork for a future at the forefront of their respective fields. Here are the top 4 reasons why you should study in Malaysia.
1) You will study in one of the best education systems in the world. Your future is already bright, but a Malaysian education offers an even greater gleam. While the entire continent of Asia is heralded as a rising star in the world of international higher education, Malaysia is outpacing the rest in establishing itself as a force to be reckoned with thanks to dogged government initiatives focused on the importance of educational innovation -- not only in terms of acquiring superpower status but also specifically --and uniquely -- as it pertains to the country’s own economy.
Grads of Malaysia higher educational institutions are primed and ready to conquer the ever-evolving global economy as well as their own local one thanks to a shared vision, explicitly defined outcomes as well as strategies toward their achievement.

2) You will assure yourself a degree highly renowned by employers. Malaysia was ranked as one of QS’s top five “Best Student Cities” in 2016 for a multitude of reasons. Of course, there’s its extraordinary reputation as an epicentre for higher education, research and innovation thanks to a combination of government imperatives, top-ranked universities, a collaborative spirit and a magnificent quality of life.
Because of Malaysia’s renowned superiority in the field of education, employers increasingly seek out its grads -- both in Asia and across the globe. Both Public and Private Institutions in Malaysia are soaring higher league in the QS World University rankings, due in no small part to their ability to attract top students and faculty from all over the world. The country’s commitment to educational imperatives makes it one of the world’s most desirable spots for students -- not only because of the education they receive while there but also because of the many doors opened by a Malaysian degree.
3) You will experience a student life like no other. 1. Safety Matters Aside from the fact that Malaysia is a diverse, beautiful and vibrant place to live, it also excels in terms of safety. Strict laws and correspondingly low crime rates mean that city street and public transportation methods are exceptionally secure for wanderers. In fact, TripAdvisor recently awarded Malaysia the #5 spot on its list of the World’s most affordable metropolitan city in the world
2. Diversity Abounds Diversity isn’t just accepted in Malaysia, it is abundantly welcomed. A large percentage of ex-pats offer a comfortable environment for newcomers and the town -- and even the taxi drivers -- is celebrated for its friendliness to strangers. The melding of so many unique cultures offers a unique worldview for residents and visiting scholars alike.
3. Anytime, Anywhere If action is your endgame, then there’s no place quite like Malaysia. The city is alive with people and activities throughout the day and well into the evening. Night owls in particular will love living here, where shops, restaurants and other attractions remain open way into the wee hours. An extraordinary breadth and depth of local cuisine, unparalleled shopping and even a world-celebrated zoo mean that no one is ever bored in Malaysia.
4. You Pay for What You Get People who live here in Malaysia enjoy access to terrific amenities that just make life better. From efficient services to cheap public transportation to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysian enjoy an extremely high quality of life considered by many to be well worth the expense.
5. English Abounds While Malaysia may seem like a far-off destination, international students quickly acclimate to life here thanks to its four official languages, and the remarkable prevalence of English -- spoken by a full 75 per cent of its population.
