Malaysia A Top 10 Overseas Destination in Education

Malaysia has always been a hugely popular destination for many reasons, be it the tropical climate, the world famous cuisine or simply due to its reputation for hospitality where everyone is welcome. More recent times have seen major international sporting events hosted in the country ensuring the profile of the nation enjoys an even wider scope and greater appeal.

To add to this, Malaysia has now also been recognised as one of the world’s top ten destinations for overseas education attracting an ever-growing number of international students. Among other things, this is in no small part due to the affordability of tuition and the high quality of education available.

Making the move to a new country can certainly be a daunting task, however obtaining a diploma or degree right here in the heart of Southeast Asia can be your gateway to the world and a launch pad to a successful career.

“Leading the way in Malaysia is the Sunway Education Group, which boasts a world class network of institutions, rich with a multi-ethnic student population that make it ideal for gaining a deeper global awareness and understanding of cultures.” 

As a student or parent, the quality of education is your principal concern and at Sunway University, we appreciate this more than anyone. The QS World University Ratings, regarded as one of the most authoritative in the world, recently awarded Sunway University a rating of five stars in teaching, facilities and employability in its 2016 QS Stars results. The Malaysian Qualifications Agency has classified Sunway as Excellent, while The Student Barometer Survey Entry Wave 2015, a global benchmark for student experience, ranked the Sunway Education Group No.1 in Asia for Overall Learning Experience and Employability.

The University’s ever-growing brand has witnessed extensive programme partnerships with world class institutions such as Lancaster University and Le Cordon Bleu. Equally, the foremost universities in the world enjoy affiliations with Sunway, namely Harvard University, University of Cambridge and University of Oxford.

“Sunway University also maintains strong links with Australian institutions, most notably Victoria University which offers the Victoria University Bachelor of Business degree here.” 

Meanwhile, the Monash University Foundation Year provides a passport for pre-university students to begin undergraduate studies at both Monash University Malaysia Campus and Monash University.

If studying within these award-winning facilities and being mentored by 5 star professors while the world’s leading brands monitor your progress at Sunway is not enough, the affordable cost of tuition is an enticing factor to consider. Higher education in Malaysia is among the most reasonable in the world, and one of the prime reasons international students choose to study here. Not only are the quality of education and wide range of courses on par with Australia’s top universities, the price at which they are offered is in some cases a fraction of those around the world.

Malaysia also affords you the chance to appreciate some of the world’s most stunning islands and age-old rainforests. From the bustling capital of Kuala Lumpur you can explore the entire region easily and quickly with low cost carrier Air Asia.
