FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Not true. First of all Malaysia is an Asian country. So don’t expect Western culture and norms. Malaysia, just like Sri Lanka does not have a culture of part time work. If you are to work, it is expected that, you work full time. So we don’t encourage students to seek work during academic studies. That being said there are a lot of opportunities to work after the graduation. Most universities actively bring prospective employers to the university for recruitment fairs. Students, including international students, can correspond with them and find opportunities in those companies.
Not true. Most of our partners are branch campuses of universities in Western countries. They offer you the opportunity to transfer and remain in the parent university for most of the courses.
No. Even though you studied in Malaysia the certificate will be issued by the parent campus. It will not show where you have studied.
Not true. Malaysia is not as conservative as other similar nations. Religious laws are enforced mostly on the Malay – Muslim population only. Vast majority of the private universities are operated by ethnic minority population in the country. They adhere to their own cultural standards which are more open minded.

Not true. Typical course fee for a total three year program (excluding Medicine) will be about Rs. 4.5 million. The cost of living will be Rs. 1.8 million.
