The Launch of our Guide to UK-Malaysia Education Excellence at the British Council’s Education Roundtable and Partnership Showcase

Date: 28 February 2024

We are thrilled to announce that on 28 February, Her Excellency Ailsa Terry CMG, the British High Commissioner to Malaysia officially launched ! This was made possible with the invaluable support from our esteemed partner, the British Council, at their UK-MY Higher Education Roundtable and Partnership Showcase 2024.

Education has always stood out as a cornerstone in the longstanding relationship between Malaysia and the United Kingdom, reflecting shared ambitions to elevate human capital and continually enhance the quality and relevance of education.

Despite a slight plateau in Malaysian enrolments in UK transnational education (TNE) in recent years, the country remains the second-largest TNE market in East Asia. Malaysia proudly maintains its regional leadership, representing 54% of all Southeast Asia enrolments in UK TNE. Hosting numerous UK branch campuses and partnering programmes within local universities, Malaysia continues to attract students from across the region. To date, Malaysia demonstrates a steadfast commitment to fostering new higher education collaborations spanning transnational education, research, and mobility between the UK and Malaysia.

“There is a lot of potential to widen access to education and equip the students of today with the skills they will need to thrive in the future global economy. This practical guide will help unlock more partnerships that will help us meet the educational challenges of the digital and post-pandemic era.”  – Her Excellency Ailsa Terry, CMG

Also present to support the launch of the Guide was the Deputy Minister of Higher Education Malaysia, YB Datuk Tan Sri Mustapha Sakmud.
