Malaysian Education System
Malaysia is fast emerging as a centre for high-quality education systems and standards of educational excellence in the region with its international standards. It is closely monitored by the Ministry of Higher Education, which has the vision to turn Malaysia into a Centre of Excellence for Higher Education. The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Higher Education are dedicated to ensuring high academic standards in the country. The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) under the Ministry of Higher Education is a quality assurance body responsible for monitoring and overseeing the quality assurance practices and accreditation of national higher education. To further promote Malaysia, the Ministry of Higher Education has set up education promotion centres in Vietnam, China, United Arab Emirates and Indonesia.


The international community will find Malaysia an ideal destination for all levels of education. Choose from long-term programmes such as Diplomas, Bachelor's, Master's and Postgraduate Degrees, or short-term English language courses, summer/motivation camps as well as homestays with the locals. In Malaysia, international and local students are able to get foreign degree qualifications from universities in Australia, US, UK, France, Canada, etc. through twinning and 3+0 degrees, as well as foreign university campuses that are already setup in Malaysia. Through such programmes, students are able to obtain world-class education at a much lower cost. Students can enrol in private and international schools, or opt for expatriate schools where they can continue with the syllabi of their respective countries. Studying here is also an ideal option for families that participate in the Malaysia My Second Home programme or health and wellness packages in Malaysia.
