Overview
Monash University Malaysia

Bordering Thailand to the north, Singapore to the south, and Indonesia to the south east, Malaysia is located at the crossroads of South-East Asia. Its strategic position between the Straits of Malacca and the South China Sea made it an historic trading center, which absorbed influences from China, India, and colonising western powers, such as Great Britain.  As a result, the country’s mix of Malays, Chinese, Indians, and indigenous people has produced a society that is rich in traditional and modern influences, reflected in its many languages, religions, and foods.

Monash Sunway campus in Malaysia is wholly owned by Monash University of Australia, a world top 50 ranked university and one of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive universities. Due to its affiliation with Australia, students participating in this exchange can expect to meet a lot of Aussies as well!
