Study in Malaysia
Consisting of thirteen states and three federal territories, Malaysia is a diverse tropical country that is split into two equally sized regions known as peninsular Malaysia and East Malaysia. With a population of over 30 million, Malaysia is ranked as the 44th most populous country in the world.
Being a land of intriguing diversity, Malaysia is a blend of Malay, Chinese and Indian ethnic groups which exhibit a kaleidoscope of colours and cuisines, making for a distinctly varied culture. Kuala Lumpur, the most populous city in Malaysia, is located on Peninsular Malaysia and is about a five-hour bus ride north of Singapore. This spread out city is ornamented with many mosques and colonial British and Moor influenced buildings that remind trendsetting city-goers of its colourful past.
Boasting a consistent growth in GDP over the past 50 years, Malaysia maintains one of the best economic records in Asia. Though the economy has traditionally been fueled by its natural resources, the sectors of science, tourism and commerce are expanding rapidly. Malaysia has a newly industrialized market economy which is the 3rd in South East Asia and 29th in Asia. According to a HSBC report in 2012, Malaysia will become the world’s 21st largest economy by 2050 with a GDP of 1.2 trillion.
Malaysia also possesses a world class education system that caters to its rapidly growing economy. This undoubtedly presents unlimited opportunity for students willing to study in this vibrant country. Another feature of a Malaysian education which foreign students find very attractive is its affordability in comparison to other common study destinations such as Australia, USA and the UK. In fact, Kuala Lumpur was ranked as the most affordable city for students in 2014.
