While all this is available, there are also multi cuisine food courts in every University with fast food options like Mc Donald, Pizza hut, Dominos, Starbucks coffee and other local and international cuisines. All this is available at very affordable prices.

Eating out everyday is not possible; hence, we recommend students, especially vegetarian students to learn basic cooking to have a healthier and more affordable lifestyle.

10. Is it a safe country for students?

Ans. Safety is a major concern for all parents, especially Indian parents because of some recent, unfortunate happenings. Malaysia is one of the safest countries in the world. All Universities, hostels, private accommodations, etc have 24x7 security surveillance. Since it is majorly a tourist country, the Government has made security of the people their priority.

Most restaurants and general stores are open 24 hours a day and all the streets hustle and bustle with students, tourists, etc till at least 3 in the morning, so security is never an issue.
Malaysia has a No-Drugs policy and getting caught with drugs will lead to deportation, imprisonment or death penalty.
