Malaysia’s higher education (public and private) has been growing by leaps and bounds over the years. 

Private universities in Malaysia are also fast gaining a strong reputation for high quality education programs and students from all over the world are coming to Malaysia to study in these universities.

Many of these private universities offer twin-degree programs in collaboration with renowned universities from the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, giving students the choice to complete their programs entirely in Malaysia or to spend just a year of study overseas to graduate.  International programs have the advantage of helping to promote international communication, cultural exchange and global thinking.

In recent years, many reputable foreign universities have set up their branch campuses in Malaysia, for example, Britain’s University of Nottingham, Newcastle University, the University of Southampton, University of Reading, Heriot-Watt University; Australia’s Monash University, Curtin University, Swinburne University and Singapore’s Raffles University.
