Malaysia is a southeast Asian country that is simultaneously modern, traditional, developed and historic with a peaceful multicultural population. Indigenous Malay and traditional tribes such as the Iban and Bidayuh live harmoniously alongside a large Chinese and Indian populace and this seamless blending of cultures lends Malaysia an international flavour that few countries can boast.

With an equatorial climate and inviting culture, Malaysia is a welcoming country in which to visit and study. Crime is low and transport links are excellent with major towns and cities connected by air and, failing that, by inexpensive bus. Opportunities for a vivid cultural experience are very high while politically and economically the country is considered to be stable.

Peninsular (West) Malaysia is a federation of states stretching south of Thailand and north of Singapore. This is where you'll find the capital, Kuala Lumpur (known simply as KL) and the major cities of Penang, Johor Bharu and Melaka. East Malaysia, the northern part of the island of Borneo, consists of Sarawak and Sabah and is host to some of the world's most famous jungle, the orang-utan, and to Kuching (meaning 'cat' in Malay), one of Asia's most liveable cities.

Education Highlights:

An important result of Malaysia's carefully managed modernization is a steadily improving education system that has poured millions into research and development, and to encouraging international students into the country. In the 2010 QS World University Rankings, five universities appeared in the QS Top 500. The quality of teaching in institutions like University Malaya (UM), University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) and University Sains Malaysia (USM) has improved greatly over recent years, following a government decree that all teachers and lecturers have to possess a degree in the subject that they are teaching, which was not the case before the turn of the century.

On the back of its enduring economic and industrial boom, Malaysia is trying hard to position itself as the Asian destination of choice for international students seeking to study abroad, and with some success. Currently there are around 50,000 students from 100 countries in Malaysian tertiary education - and the country wants to promote a multicultural image that reflects the country itself.
