I am Turkmen student in Malaysia, When I came to Malaysia It was very difficult for me to understand Malaysian accent when they spoke in English, but after few months I got used to their accent. I was very new for the things lecturers were teaching specially in Mathematics, Statistics and in Accounting, I was struggling in all those subjects and therefore I had to repeat them. I asked one of my classmates to help me to teach Math and other subjects, and he agreed to teach me and I gave him RM10 per hour to teach me. After learning from him I started to get good grades in all of my subjects, I finished my foundation with over CGPA 3.00, I love studying in a group, group studies are the best way to learn if you are struggling with your studies, Malaysians are very friendly and if you ask them kindly and join their study group they will help you with your studies. Currently studying Bachelor in Finance and my grades are much better than my foundation grades.
Malaysia have given a lot to me, I have gained a lot of experience and a lot of friends. I have visited most of the nice touristic locations in Malaysia, touristic places in Malaysia are very beautiful and affordable I loved traveling in Malaysia during my semester breaks. I was having great time while I was studying and enjoying my studies at the same time.
My recommendation for International students is give extra effort in their foundation because the effort you put in will help you during your Bachelor Degree. Study in a group and try to teach and share what you have learned with your friends so that you can learn better while you teach. International students should make a lot of friends because having a lot of friends will help you to build your networking which will help you late in life and friends will help you during your studies.
I have been to Malaysia almost for 2 years. and it was full of experience to me with new cultural backgrounds and educational learning. Malaysia is having a huge investment in education and it improves the quality in universities, that's one of the main reasons why International prefer Malaysia and why Malaysia has lot of foreign students.
During your study you will have great chances to see around Malaysia with its adorable touristic places and make your study enjoyable! and welcoming Malaysian friends ..!
~ "Why you choose Malaysia in front of European Countries?" - The most frequential question that Malaysians do to me ..
Actually i come from the newest country in Europe called Kosovo,and what made me choose Malaysia is the beauty of its nature and culture. My first contact with this country was in 2007 when we decided to come for holiday with my family and since that time i used to love Malaysia .
A country that includes 3 main cultures,many races and religions,wonderful islands,amazing nature and landscapes makes the famous sentence "Malaysia,Truly Asia" becomes true.
I am happy that i have the opportunity to study here, Malaysians are friendly and lovely especially to foreigners.
My name is Mohamed. I am from Sudan. I recently doing my second year studies (Degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering) in Malaysia.
I Arrived Malaysia with mixed emotions — confused, excited and Sad. I was sad as I was far away from my country, and I knew that I had to adapt to the new place that would be my home for the next three years. I was home sick first few weeks wondering how I would deal with my loneliness and have the next three years pass in just a flash.
But all that is behind me now as I have been almost two year until now. My student experience in this country has been truly unforgettable another emotion I am dealing with these days.
Malaysia is a great place to study and I have cherished every moment here. My university has a group of foreigners who come from diverse backgrounds. In the beginning, Asians especially those of Malay, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese and Korean descent all looked the same to me. During the initial weeks, I had often mistaken local Malays for Chinese and even referred to a classmate as Chinese but he was gracious and explained that he was Malay!
After a few months of living here, I started to speak English the Malaysian way. My sentences were generously punctuated with “no lah”, “cannot lah” and “also can” hahaha
Malaysia is certainly the country to be in when it comes to food. There is a wide variety of dishes that cater to different tastebuds, but some friends from college have been afraid to be “adventurous”. I have a great time trying out many dishes
Malaysians are generally friendly and hospitable, and Having a common interest helps as it has allowed me to make new friends and acquaintances.
I am a English student who made an exchange out in Malaysia and do not regret anything.
The country itself is vibrant and lively. The locals are extremely friendly and welcoming towards foreigners.. There are many authentic aspects of Malaysia, whether you're going to eat Nasi Goreng Ayam or travel out to one of the beautiful islands.
A huge amount of international students do enter Malaysia so you won't be alone and they are all friendly; from the Middle East, Turkey, Indonesia and many more.
Lastly enjoy the variety of things to do out in Malaysia at a very reasonable price, especially for students and travellers as many other lovely Asian countries are within a few hours flight!
