Pre-departure Checklist

Tuition Fees
Please be aware of the cost of studying and living in Malaysia and organize adequate financial resources before leaving your home country. International students living overseas must pay their first semester fees well before departure so they will have enough time to obtain their Student Pass. Tuition fees vary according to the course you are taking. For fee structure, please refer to your Offer Letter.

Money
Students will need to bring about RM800 – RM1000 in cash to cover expenses in Malaysia for the first few weeks. Students should also bring other funds to be drawn in Ringgit either in the forms of a bank draft or via electronic transfer in a bank account in Malaysia. Please take note that bank clearings may take a week for electronic transfers to a month for bank drafts. Please also be advised that it is more convenient to transfer funds electronically when depositing large sums of money into bank accounts. Students will be given more information during the Orientation Program.

  • The Ringgit Malaysia (RM) is the basic unit of exchange. Both paper notes and coins are used.
  • Notes are different in colours and size. Denominations are RM1 (blue), RM5 (green), RM10 (red), RM50 (blue) and RM100 (purple).
  • Coins vary in size according to the value. Denominations are 50 cent (silver), 20 cent (silver), 10 cent(silver) 5 cent (silver) and 1 cent (bronze).

Health History
It is important to know your own health history. Before departure, please ask your doctor’s advice on the type of medications you have been taking and the immunizations you have been given in the past. Most importantly, please be aware of the medications that you are allergic to. It is also good practice to have this information in writing in case you become ill while overseas.
Lying between one and seven degrees north of the equator, Malaysia enjoys a tropical climate. The average temperature is 28 degrees Celsius; however, highland temperature can reach the mean of 18 degrees. Annual rainfall is heavy at 2500mm (100 inches). The high humidity level at 80% throughout the year favours light and sweat-absorbent material such as cotton for daily dressing. Generally, Malaysia has two distinct seasons. The dry season occurs during the southwest monsoon from May to September. The northeast monsoon blows from mid-November until March, which brings about the rainy season (monsoon) to the country. The East Coast of the country is best avoided during these times.

Electrical Goods
Electric supply is on a 240-volt 50-cycle system. Please ensure that the electrical goods from your country are compatible to use in Malaysia.

Computer laboratories are available on campus with a variety of software, printing, e-mail and Internet facilities. Various spots on campus are WiFi enabled allowing students the convenience of getting online with their laptops. Students who wish to use the computer labs are required to register with the Corporate Information Centre (CIC). Students are required to present their student card to be registered. International students can bring their passport as proof. The lab is opened daily and you can check the opening hours from the notice on the lab entrance.

Passport Renewal
Before leaving the country, please check to ensure that your passport is current. Passport renewal may take several months. Please be advised to apply for renewal at least two months before the expiry date to avoid any inconveniences.

ArrivalStudents will have to notify us the details of their arrival at least 5 days before their departure date. The information required is:
