With the raising expenses of medical education around the world, it is a fair assumption to note that more students will choose to study at home. However, the value of foreign education is still very much valued by employers and students.
Medical education in Malaysia is viewed as prestigious due to the popular perception that it may lead to a secure job and a wider future. Therefore, many parents out there wish to see their children do medicine and become doctors.
There are many institutions in Malaysia that offer medical education to Malaysians, which gives parents the opportunity to select the institution that meets their expectations. Among the many options comes Perdana University's medical programme.
