“Our advice to future students looking to pursue higher education in Malaysia is to enjoy the diverse culture in Malaysia. Do not worry about cultural differences in our beautiful country. We Malaysians are used to living in a multiracial society, and we are very used to respecting each other’s cultures, religions, and beliefs. There is no language barrier in Malaysia, as most of us are proficient in multiple languages, including English. Our culture is also close to that of India as both Malaysia and India are ex-colonies of the British, hence we share some historical backgrounds”, speaks Louis Yeoh Teong, Executive Director, IPK College.
