One of the biggest reasons why international students choose Malaysia for their higher studies is cost-effectiveness. The students can get high-quality education with cheaper tuition fees. There are several courses in Malaysia that are hosted by UK universities. For example, a three-year engineering degree costs only about 17,000 US dollars or RM 68,000. But if a student does not belong to the United Kingdom and wants to take that degree from the United Kingdom, then the total cost of that degree will be 175,000 US dollars. That difference is huge.
