International Students Love Pursuing a UK Degree in Malaysia

Published by Afterschool.my on Feb 26, 2016, 03:25 pm

Exciting days for international students planning to study in Malaysia as they flock to get their UK degrees from Malaysia.


A growing number of private universities in Malaysia are collaborating with universities originally from the land of the Queen to offer UK degrees to local and international students alike. Here are the top four reasons why international students come to Malaysia for a UK degree:

1. Cheaper fees and living expenses


With UK degrees offered in Malaysia, financial  concerns are easily managed for two reasons:

  1. Tuition fees are paid based on Malaysian pricing, not the UK
  2. Living in Malaysia is much cheaper than the UK

Student accommodation, daily expenses, transportation costs, medical costs, visa renewal costs and other costs are very cheap compared to the UK.

2. Go directly to branch campuses


There are 5 branch campuses from the UK

International students have a great opportunity to enroll with a UK university branch and gain an internationally recognized certification in Malaysia if you prefer.

3. Dual degree programmes


Many private universities in Malaysia offer Dual Degree Programs due to the established partnerships with top UK universities. Follow these steps:

  • Enroll in a Malaysian private institution.
  • Complete your undergraduate degree in Malaysia with UK standards.
  • Receive a dual award degree from the Malaysian institution and the corresponding UK university.

4. Transfer or foreign degree programmes

Similar to the dual degree programs with three major differences:

  1. Enroll in a UK transfer program at a Malaysian private university.
  2. Depending on the programme, you are required to complete a certain number of years in Malaysia and finish the final year or the last two years in the UK.
  3. Upon graduation, you will be awarded degrees directly from the UK university offering your programme of choice.
