“Malaysia ranks 11th worldwide as a preferred destination for international students. The high standard and excellent facilities Malaysian universities provide have been key to attracting many foreign students.

Malaysia recorded a population of over 71,000 foreign students recently, over 25,000 of which are from the Mena region"

Some foreign postgrad students in Malaysia (in one forum) have this common problem - quality supervisors. High-tech facility and conducive environment are a plus though.

Some foreign postgrad students in Malaysia (discussion in one forum) have this common problem - lack of quality supervisors (Masters courses). High-tech facility and conducive environment are a plus though, esp for those doing PhD.

Indonesia Student No 2 in Malaysia.

This was due to the burgeoning international student population in Malaysia, which has risen above 90,000, or the equivalent of around two per cent of the total international student population in the world as of June this year.

Based on the statistical breakdown provided by the MOHE website, the top five countries from which the majority of students were derived in 2009 were Iran, Indonesia, China, Nigeria and Yemen.

“Malaysia’s strategic regional position forms a melting pot of confluence that allows cross-fertilisation of ideas, cultures and civilisation dialogism,” Muhyiddin said.

The rise in the overseas student population in Malaysia is also attributed to the higher education liberalisation policy which aims to provide 100 per cent foreign equity by 2015.

Maybe Malaysia just have impressive buildings/facilities that appeals to human tastes and nature. Otherwise even dropouts makes it big with luck and raw talents.

Malaysian students overseas are about the same numbers. Universities in Malaysia should at least catch up with Singapore. Barulah ngamtion.

Wonder about the effect of liberalisation policy in HE.
