KUALA LUMPUR 04 MARCH 2020 : In the past decade, Malaysia has been one of the preferred spot for educational pursuits and ranks as the 11th largest exporter of education in the world. The conducive learning environment cushioned by stable socio-economic development have attracted foreign students to enroll in numerous programmes in Malaysia.

According to media reports, Malaysia was hosting 127,583 international students as of March 2019 – 70% of which were in private higher education institutions.

The Ministry of Education has urged the private and public universities and other stakeholders to work together to fulfil this aim. In line with the Government's objective Subul Education Consultancy Sdn Bhd (SEC Malaysia) has been working towards boosting the number of foreign students intake in Malaysia.

Mohanad Mudhafer, the Director of SEC Malaysia sees the breadth of Malaysia's academic offering and multicultural environment as highly marketable aspects.

SEC Malaysia was recently conferred with an award for for Highest PostGraduate Recruitment by the esteemed Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). The company has contributed immensely in the recruitment of students for Diploma, Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies for computer and engineering programmes

" We assist the students to settle in Malaysia and expose them to the rules and regulations and try to make the student pass and visa registration process as seamless as possible. We are different from other agencies because we address all their concerns." said Mohanad

Students who study here needs to assimilate with the living conditions, plan their living expenses and their accomodation.

The local and private universities engages with the agencies to facilitate marketing activities, exhibition and roadshows for the institutions to participate and bridge the relationship with the potential students. The close collaboration with universities enabled the 6 year old agency to become the trusted advisor for the students who are stepping into Malaysia for the first time.

The Government is focused to reach its KPI of 200,000 students intake by 2020 and continue to grow for the next few years

"Malaysia houses 477 private higher education institutions and 10 foreign university branch campuses, but only about 200 of these institutions are given permission by the Ministry of Home Affairs to recruit international students. Our students mostly come from Middle East and North Africa and we will strive to provide balanced graduates to the institutions” Mohanad said.

If Malaysia 's optimistic KPI is achieved, the government has announced that revenue from international students is expected to generate 15.6 billion Malaysian Ringgit (£3bn).
