Moving to a new country can be an exhilarating experience, exciting and daunting in equal measure. Like everyone who has made that leap, you will know of that roller coaster of emotions: one minute planning the trips and scanning the beaches that you will soon visit, and the next minute feeling slightly overawed at the prospect of what you are about to do (or have just done).
Some of the decisions you will have to make are massive. After you have decided that, yes, you will move to Malaysia, you are then faced with questions such as where to live, how to settle in and how to keep contact with loved ones back home. Those expats with children (or planning for them) will also worry about their kids’ education.
Fortunately, Malaysia is home to some truly exceptional educational establishments. As well as big, international names there are also equally prestigious home grown or regional schools. You will find virtually every curriculum catered for – British, Australian, American, to name but three – as well as all age ranges. So, whether your children are just starting out in preschool or are preparing for their final exams, you can guarantee that you will find a school, or university, perfect for them.
While it is comforting that Malaysia can offer such a varied and excellent education landscape, the array of choices can leave you a little befuddled. That’s where this Essential Education 2017 comes in. Listing all the schools, colleges and universities, handily broken down into sections for the different age ranges, it will take out all the leg work of hunting for that perfect place.
