The Star reported today that Malaysia is currently the world’s 11th most preferred study destination.
The conclusion was based on the fact that 69,154 international students from more than 150 countries have chosen Malaysia as the country they wanted to study in.
Majority of the students are from Indonesia, China and the Middle East. Malaysia has 2% of the world’s international student population according to the UNESCO Institute for Statistics.
The education ministry has already given the green light for Newcastle University of Medicine to set up a branch campus at Iskandar Malaysia’s Educity in Nusajaya, Johor.
There are ongoing negotiations with the following universities to set up branch campuses here in Malaysia: Korean Maritime University, Southampton University, Royal Holloway University, King’s College London, the University of Birmingham and Murdoch University.
So if you are a foreigner and are contemplating about sending your children overseas to further their studies, Malaysia welcomes your children.
