Living in Malaysia

Strategically located in the economic pulse of Southeast Asia, Malaysia is the leading tourist and commercial destination in
Asia. It borders Thailand to the north, Singapore to the south and Indonesia to the south east.
Apart from being a metropolitan centre with a modern economy, Malaysia also possesses a rich history and vast natural
rainforests. Several UNESCO World Heritage Sites are present here, including the Kinabalu Park and Mulu National Park in
Borneo, and the historical cities of Melaka and Georgetown in the peninsula. In the capital city, the iconic Petronas Twin
Towers render a stunning skyline for Kuala Lumpur.
Home to a diverse population of various ethnicities, cultures, and backgrounds, Malaysia offers no shortage of flavourful
cuisine, vibrant festivals and heritage traditions. You will always have places to go, people to meet, and treasures to discover.

“Studying Arts and Social Sciences
opens the minds of students to
become global citizens. It helps
them to identify and critique social
inequalities, dominant discourses in
the media, power imbalances and
misrepresentations in political
institutions. We train them in
analytical and critical thinking, help
them to communicate effectively
and work in teams in order to offer
solutions for some of the key
cultural, social and political issues
facing the world today.”

Local and regional
study trips
Study trips within and outside of Malaysia provide our student travelers
the opportunities to learn about the diverse and complex socio-cultural
and political realities affecting the places visited and hone their
observational, interviewing, documentation, and organisational skills.
Through these encounters, student-travelers learn to interrogate the
knowledge gathered in classroom settings and compare it to what is
known in the 'real world'.
