Study English in Malaysia? Of course, you should!  And here’s why:

  1. Great location:

    Malaysia is located in the heart of South East Asia. Travelling to and from the country could not be easier from Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). A leading aviation hub in Asia, it is one of the top 15 busiest airport for international traffic, serving more than 120 direct destinations. Malaysia is a good starting point from which you can explore the region and beyond.

  2. International standard of education:

    There is a great choice of internationally-recognised universities here. Educational institutions are regulated and monitored by the Malaysian government through educational legislation enforcement to ensure quality. Twinning programmes with the UK, USA, Australia and Canada offer students accredited degrees at a number of universities, where most courses are conducted in English. The QS Best Student Cities notes that Malaysia is fast becoming one of Southeast Asia’s leading study destinations.

  3. A vibrant, multi–cultural environment:

    Home to a multi-ethnic population of Malays, Chinese and Indians, Malaysia is a place of great diversity. With a rich multicultural environment, diverse lifestyles, traditional and religious practices are enjoyed across the country in the spirit of peace and unity. Apart from the different local ethnic groups, international students and visitors also contribute to the vibrant cultural environment, so that English is used extensively in both personal and business communications.

  4. Modern, Historical and Natural:

    Malaysia is a land of contrast, characterised by super-modern skyscrapers and luxurious shopping malls as well as fascinating natural environment within easy reach of the city.

Malaysia offers a good learning environment and diverse cultural and social experiences for international students. Being here for the first time, you will be stimulated by the vibrant cultures and stimulating adventures you can explore across the country. To get the most of your time in Malaysia, here are some tips to help you throughout your stay here.


Banking services in Malaysia are extensive. There are many local and international banks throughout the country and students from abroad can open bank accounts at a number of banks here. And if you are unsure or worried about procedures and requirements, rest assured that our student advisors are always available to help you open a bank account.


All international students are required under Malaysian law to have an insurance during their stay in the country. EMS have advisors who will help you with any claims that you may need to make. Insurance fees are added to your tuition fees.


What clothes to bring? Malaysia can be blistering hot many days in a year. So, if you want to avoid getting sunburn, wear loose fitting clothes that cover your shoulders or skirts that drop below the knee which will help you minimise sunburn and keep cool. Bearing in mind the humidity, make sure you wear something light. You may also feel more culturally comfortable if you avoid wearing revealing clothes on the streets.

If visiting mosques and temples (Buddhist, Hindu and Sikh), it would be handy to have a scarf to cover your hair and wear a skirt instead of pants. Places of worship popular with tourists, such as the Putrajaya and Jamek mosques in Kuala Lumpur, usually have scarves and “robes” for visitors, which you can borrow for your visit. Most places pf worships expect you to remove your footwear before entering them, so if you are visiting any, make sure you wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off.

Drinking water

Is tap water safe to drink in Malaysia? Studies have shown that the level of selected minerals in Malaysian tap water is generally below permitted levels. This basically means that the water running through the pipes is actually safe to consume.  However, the government travel website advises against consuming tap water, fountain drinks and ice cubes. https://www.malaysia.travel/en/nl/about-malaysia/practical-info/health-and-safety

Most people tend to boil water or get water purifiers set up in their homes to make sure that water for consumption is filtered. People also buy mineral water and there are many brands to choose from.

As the sun is strong throughout the year, the government also advises drinking plenty of fluids to replace salt loss and to avoid dehydration. 


Malaysia is a food paradise. There is an array of eating places from street stalls, cafes, to international restaurants. Generally, food hygiene is good. Make the most of your time in Malaysia to experience the different types of food. Local food is either, Malay, Indian, Chinese or Punjabi and these differ in styles and tastes. The range of international food from Arabic to Mexican is also plentiful.

Stay away from substance abuse

Malaysia has strict rules against illicit drug use. So, avoid it at any cost.
