- Explore a campus situated amid durian, rambutan, and dragon fruit orchards and lily-filled lakes. In the city of Kuala Lumpur, you will discover a melting pot of distinct cultures with approximately half of the population identifying as ethnically Malay coupled with a blend of Chinese, Indian, and indigenous peoples.
- UPM, an AACSB-accredited leading research university, has attracted students and staff from all around the world, making it a well-respected global institution. Some highlights include their engineering, information technology, and nursing programs among many other fields.
- The on-campus International Students Association offers an extensive list of social programs throughout the academic year. Attending these events gives you an excellent opportunity to mingle with fellow students and visit some of Malaysia's most popular heritage and tourism attractions. These visits are partially subsidized by the university to provide all international students with the opportunity to participate.
- The campus is filled with compelling recreational activities for you to take part in while abroad. For example, you can put your equestrian skills to the test by riding horses at the on-campus equine center or learn how to hit a hole-in-one at the on-campus 18-hole golf course.
The laid-back, friendly people of Malaysia love to socialize and will welcome you to their country with open arms! This is due, in part, to Malaysia’s rich tapestry of diverse cultures, peoples, and ideologies who accept each other and live together harmoniously.
What We Love About Kuala Lumpur
We love that throughout the year there are many festivals celebrated by the different cultures in Malaysia including religious holidays for Muslims, Buddhists, and more. These include celebrations such as the Moon Festival (also known as the Lantern Festival), Floria (a night parade featuring flower displays), film festivals, and many, many more!
