Education in Malaysia

The growing reputation afforded to private universities in Malaysia has attracted thousands of international students over the past decade. Some of these private schools offer programs that allow students to earn part of a degree at that university and part of a degree at another institution. Called "twinning", this method facilitates the transference of transcripts and credits and also makes admission to programs offering associate degrees automatic if the program is provided by a local institution. Better known universities in Malaysia include Monash University Malaysia Campus, Swinburne University of Technology Sarawak Campus and Malaysia's oldest university, the University of Malaya located in the capital of Kuala Lumpur.

Students can receive Bachelor's and Master's degree at Malaysian universities in the amount of time similar to European and American degree programs. Most private and all public universities offer Master of Science degrees by completing required research and coursework. Doctorate degrees are earned when students can exhibit research results in the form of a published paper. Malaysia also has polytechnic colleges that resemble traditional vocational schools by offering associate's degrees, advanced diploma degrees or certificates of special skills.

Acceptance to a Malaysian university is not difficult but requires students submit proof of grades earned from previous schools attended. Malaysia is becoming well-known for its exceptional higher education programs concerning technology, business and science and welcomes bright international students to study at any one of its universities.
