Before i end this article, I'd like to go through why international education at all?

Why should you or your family- children and siblings even consider pursuing international education? Well, I went on and on about how university is like a stepping stone into adulthood, you'll have to discipline yourself , arrange your closses, arrange your daily schedule accordingly, I also wrote about being a global graduate, and getting recognized internationoally.

International education is about going places, meeting people and understanding their cultures because you won't just be meeting feelow Malaysians anymore, you'll start meeting people from various countries who might not speak the same languages you do, you might meet people from various backgrounds and culture that practice different traditioons.

It's a great way to grow as a person. Moreover, Malaysia is home to a variety of cultures, ethnicities, religions and languages, and absolutely colourful country with people who are just as colourful.

International education doesm't just help you go abroad, it helps provide insight and preparedness for society, because you will be meeting various types of people with different cultures, speaking different languages throughout your lifetime.

So it you've gone through the article this far, I'd like to congratulate and applaud you for taking the initiative to get to know more about international education. Give yourself a pat on the back for wanting more for yourself because everybody deserves meaningful education.
