Expatriate Lifestyle - Essentials Education - - Editor’s Note -

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.
