Should You Study in Kuala Lumpur? Things To Ask Yourself

There’s a lot to love about Kuala Lumpur. Not only is it home to the famous Petronas Twin Towers and one of the highest skyscrapers in the world, but it also offers a myriad of activities and unique experiences, a lot of friendly faces, and so on. 

However, should you study in Kuala Lumpur? The answer is yes. In fact, the city is hailed as the best student city by the QS Best Student Cities Rankings.

Aside from that, here are other questions you can ask yourself to find out if Kuala Lumpur is the best place for you. 

Do you want to study abroad without breaking the bank?

Let’s face it, when talking about studying abroad, popular destinations usually include countries in Europe or the US. 

However, the cost of living and tuition fees in those countries can really be expensive. 

Fortunately, the world is changing. Countries in Asia, such as Malaysia, are fast becoming top contenders for being top study destinations. 

In fact, in 2019 alone, the country hosted more than 127,000 international students. 

Malaysia, including its capital city, Kuala Lumpur, remains a country that offers world-class education at an affordable price. In fact, Kuala Lumpur is hailed as the best student city per the QS Best Student Cities Rankings because of its affordability. 

Do you want to explore other parts of Southeast Asia?

Think of Malaysia as your door to other parts of Southeast Asia. 

In fact, a lot of airlines in Malaysia offer cheap flights within Malaysia and to other flights of Southeast Asia. Thus, no need to break the bank to explore more of the region. 

Do you want to explore a wide variety of cuisines in one place?

Kuala Lumpur is a multicultural and multiethnic city. In fact, there are three main ethnic groups you can find in the city Malays, Chinese, and Indians. Thus, expect different languages, practices, and also, different types of food. 

When you talk about Malaysian cuisine, expect that their food has vast influence from different cultures in Asia. 

Thus, if you are craving Chinese food, Thai, Indian, Malay, and other parts of Asia, you are sure to find them, or their version in Malaysia. 

What’s more, food in Malaysia is cheap. You can eat a meal at a restaurant for as low as $4. If you want to expand your food experience, you can also wander its streets filled with different dishes. 

Do you want to increase your chances of working abroad?

If you want to increase your chances of working abroad, whether in Malaysia or other countries, then you are in the right place in Kuala Lumpur. 

The city has widely established expat communities where you can network while studying. Through them, you can learn insider information about working in Kuala Lumpur, or other countries. Chances are, these expats are working for multinational companies in Kuala Lumpur, or still have useful connections in their home countries. 

Those are the main questions to ask yourself to know if you should study in Kuala Lumpur or not.
