In mid March several Danish Higher Education institutions were represented at European Higher Education Fair in Kuala Lumpur, and the Embassy of Denmark hosted a networking event for Danish and Malaysian universities in the Danish residence.
On 15 March University of Southern Denmark were joined in the Danish residence by some of the major universities in Malaysia to discuss opportunities for expanding collaboration through partnership agreements.
More and more universities and higher education institutions in Malaysia and Denmark are cooperating on student exchange, and there is a growing Danish interest in studying in Southeast-Asia. Malaysia is particularly attractive for Danish students because English is commonly spoken.
The teaching environment, the research environment, the universities’ international outlook and cooperation with the industry are some of the factors examined in the study.
Malaysian students are also increasingly discovering the many opportunities that Danish universities can offer with over 600 full degree programmes and 1300 individual courses offered in English.
