Should you study abroad?

If you’re considering studying abroad, here are some benefits of doing so at UOW Malaysia:

  • It will look good on your CV. Living in another country shows that you have experience dealing with different cultures and adaptability. 
  • Improve communication and language skills. Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to learn a different language. Additionally, you will also have to improve your communication skills and speak up for yourself. 
  • Meet people from diverse backgrounds. Malaysia is a melting pot of cultures. Here, you will experience different cultures, develop people skills and a better understanding and empathy for the people around you. 
  • Make friends that will last a lifetime. A shared experience of studying abroad is a great way to bond with fellow students. 
  • Discover local cuisine. What better way to learn about the country than through its delicious food? You will definitely fall in love with famous Malaysian dishes such as nasi lemak and laksa.
