EMGS statistics also reveal an increase in foreign student interest in pursuing a PhD in Malaysia over the previous two years, despite the country’s periodic lockdowns — known as the Movement Control Order (MCO) in Malaysia — due to the COVID-19 epidemic.

According to EMGS, there will be 11,161 worldwide candidates for the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme in public and private universities in 2021. In comparison to 2020, the number of applications received has nearly doubled, with just 6,348 applications received in that year.

There are several advantages to studying in Malaysia. According to EMGS, one potential pull for overseas students is the variety of courses offered in Malaysian universities, which includes disciplines in the arts and social sciences, law, and general programmes.

Malaysian universities do well in worldwide rankings among Southeast Asian tertiary education institutions. According to the 2022 QS World University Rankings, five universities are placed among the top 200 in the world.

The Universiti Malaya, the country’s most prominent public university, has been named one of the top 50 2022 Best Global Universities in Asia by US News and World Report.

Several Malaysian colleges have also increased their ranks in The Center for World University Rankings’ 2022-23 Global 2000 List. Universiti Malaya and Universiti Putra University are among those included.

A total of 19,788 institutions were ranked, with the top 200 making the Global 2000 list.
