Why go abroad when you can study in Malaysia! 🙂

Malaysia has more than 590 higher education institutions and more than 1,270,000 students of all higher education. With so many universities and colleges to choose from, you might need some help.

Private universities and colleges

These are colleges and universities that do not get funded by the government and rely on the students’ tuition contribution. With that said, their fees may be higher than in public universities.

There are three types of private institutions:

  1. Universities. They offer both undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses and can confer these degrees.
  2. University Colleges. They don’t have full university status and often are part of a bigger university, and they mainly offer pre-university and diploma programmes. They can confer degrees under specialised fields and disciplines.
  3. Colleges. They offer diploma and pre-university programmes. Some of these establishments can provide degree courses, twinning programmes included, through a local or foreign partner university.

Foreign universities

Foreign universities in Malaysia are also considered private and they work together with Malaysian institutions. Malaysian students who study in these schools will get an international qualification without leaving the country.
