5 Reasons to Do Your Master’s Degree MBA in Malaysia

“Strategically located in the Straits of Melaka, Malaysia offers it all, from historic cities and idyllic countryside to artistic riches, epic train rides and vodka-fuelled nightlife,” raves Lonely Planet. It’s also got something else: inimitable higher education opportunities for graduate students. Here’s a closer look at seven reasons to consider doing your master’s degree in Malaysia.

1. You’ll have many top-notch universities and study programs from which to choose
Education is paramount in Malaysia. In fact, the country is home to the world’s top five (5) rated preferred education hub. It follows that Malaysiahigher education institutes are well-positioned in world rankings, ranking in the respected QS Higher Education System Strength Rankings of all countries’ higher education systems, thanks to cutting-edge resources, world-class teaching, and facilities equivalent to those found at Western universities. The Malaysia Qualifications Agency (MQA) says, “All these universities and institutions in Malaysia are world-class in every sense of the term -- renowned excellence, independent, coeducational, and of government endowment. Their numerous academic departments, divisions, and award programs, as well as interdisciplinary centers and scientific work programs extend beyond traditional departmental boundaries.”

Institutions in Malaysia also offer a comprehensive range of programs across a breadth and depth of fields. There are approximately 3,600 education programs, many of which graduate programs, offered by Malaysian universities, according to Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia.

So whatever you want to study, there’s a program for you in Malaysia, and you’ll benefit from exceptional academic access every step of the way. MQA  adds, “Malaysia's premier universities bring together the best aspects of a liberal arts college, pure science programs, applied science programs [and] lab work with those of a major research university. This approach provides students in Malaysia with close access to thousands of professors and faculty members. 

2. Programme are taught in English
English is spoken by hundreds of millions all over the world -- and millions more are learning. If you’re interested in becoming one of them, there’s no better place than Malaysia to do so. Want to study in Malaysia but don’t have time to learn the language, meanwhile? More and more Malaysian universities offer English-language programs and there are many double-degree programs in Malaysia with universities all over the world.

3. It’s international student-friendly
Malaysia has long drawn thousands of international students, and Malaysia academia has a very global outlook. MQA says of this phenomenon, “Malaysia's most global universities have been providing an academic home for than 160,000 international graduates from around the world for nearly 60 years and enabling them to flourish as leaders in the private and public sector globally. In addition, these premier Malaysian universities have close ties with the world's leading educational centers, across Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa. They pride themselves on a global focus and them being a home for global students.”

Choosing to get a master’s degree in Malaysia alongside students from just under 170 other countries means choosing to study in an inherently enriching, diverse environment. In fact, roughly 12 percent of Malaysia’s student population is international. This also means that international students feel quickly at home there, due in no small part to the pride Malaysian universities take in their tradition of providing international higher education opportunities.

4. It’s an “adventure lover’s playground”
While master’s work can be intensive, it won’t take all your time. There’s a near-endless assortment of things to see and do while you’re living in Malaysia. For starters, its vast size means it has significant diversity in terms of both geography and climate, making it a great place for all kinds of outdoor recreation, ranging from jungle tracking, hiking, bird watching, and lots more. 

If city life is more your speed, there's an amazing adventure to be found them too. Malaysia Beyond enthuses, “In comparison to other countries, Malaysia does an urban maximalism that’s quite unlike any other.” While Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, is historic and buzzing global city, there are many cities in Malaysia bustling with people and activities

5. It’s extremely affordable with abundant scholarship opportunities!
Malaysia offers everything you hope to find in a major Asian nation and then some -- at a surprisingly reasonable price. Not only are food, rent, clothing and cultural activities on par with the first world infrastructure average in terms of cost, but the cost of living in Malaysia is significantly lower than in places such as the USA, Canada, and the UK. But that’s not all. Maximum tuition fees at most prestigious Malaysian universities are just a fraction of what you’ll find in other popular international study destinations.
