These universities are offering the twinning program as well i.e. you can do one semester in one country and can transfer into another university for remaining semesters.

The Malaysian government is especially focusing on quality education. Therefore Malaysia has become an attraction for lots of students in the South Asian region.

Furthermore, 60% of the Malaysian population is Muslim; therefore it becomes easy for Pakistani students to adjust. The environment is friendly and modern. Students can easily carry on their religious activities. Moreover, halal food is available everywhere.
