Foreign students to pass BM in public and private varsities

The Star reported that

Foreign students in both public and private tertiary institutions will now have to pass a course in Bahasa Melayu Communication with the aim of helping the students assimilate into local culture and prevent misunderstandings.

Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said

“It covers very basic conversational skills in Malay, similar to how Malaysian students learn German or Russian when they study in those countries.

“We will also introduce compulsory subjects on soft skills (for local and foreign students) that are relevant to their field of study or is required in their professional careers,” he said after launching the 25th Star Education Fair here yesterday.
