Trends / Study Abroad

You might be surprised to learn Malaysia is one of the top 12 leading countries for studying abroad. The extraordinary universities in the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur provide some of the best educational opportunities in Southeast Asia. On top of that, students are treated to an up-and-coming urban center, excellent nightlife and one of the best places to mingle with other students from all over the world.


The Universiti Putra Malaysia is one of the leading universities in the country and possibly the best place to study abroad. Many of the classes here are taught in English, though it certainly wouldn’t hurt to learn the Malay language. It’s a wonderful place for immersion into the language and culture. The university offers a diverse course of study, from programs in business and technology to the humanities and natural sciences. The classes are taught as part of the university’s core curriculums, so you’ll be learning right alongside local Malaysian students rather than with other foreign students.


Outside of school life you’ll find Kuala Lumpur has a wealth of entertainment options. Entire districts of the city are dedicated to showcasing local talents, with theater shows and musical performances around ever corner. If you venture outside the city you’re treated with beautiful beaches and plenty of national parks to explore.


Studying abroad in Kuala Lumpur is a unique and exciting opportunity, which few of your friends can say they’ve tried. Head over to Asia Exchange to learn more about available programs and how you can get started on your journey.
