COVID 19 Update for studying in Malaysia

To appreciate how the Malaysia Higher Education System reacted to the spread of the virus, there are some organizational things you should informed about. After being declared as a pandemic by the World Health Organization on March 11, 2020, Corona Virus hit the universities hard all around the world and Malaysia is with no exception.

Despite travel restrictions due to Corona Virus, the island has continued to receive a steady flow of students, especially from Sub-Saharan Africa. On March 16, the universities in Malaysia suspended face-to-face teaching and education was instantly replaced by digital online formats. This has seen the education system evolve about the “new-normal” for some months until recently. The reduction in mortality rates has since allowed some institutions to resolve contact lessons.

Every country has had its own border protection measures for COVID-19. It is recommended you to thoroughly research on travel restrictions before you plan your study abroad. For a while Malaysia like all other states had shut down international travel but this has resolved lately. Now students from abroad can apply to Malaysia universities within stipulated guidelines.

Since studies lately have been a blend of virtual and in-person studies, depending on the respective Covid-19 policies as per the respective state and university.  As RocApply we are constantly sending newsletters to our students on the prevalent situation and remember to subscribe to access one.
