Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying parts of the Malay Peninsula and the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rainforests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European cultural influences. The capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such as Bukit Bintang and skyscrapers such as the iconic, 451m-tall Petronas Twin Towers.
Malaysia’s reputation is steadily growing as a leader in the international education. For the year 2015-2016, 8 Malaysian universities were ranked in the QS World University Rankings® 2016-2017, marking an improvement from the previous year.
In fact, the government has set the goal of hosting 250,000 international students by 2025. This growing appeal comes as a result of Malaysia’s heavy investment in its education system in recent years.
