Travelling to Malaysia

As an international student, you can be assured of a warm welcome from our Malaysia Campus staff when you arrive in Malaysia.

Getting to our Malaysia Campus is easy as there are a number of options for you to choose from.

If your starting point is outside of Malaysia, you could fly into Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) and take a connecting flight from KLIA to Senai International Airport at Johor (JHB). You will be met at the airport and taken to your accommodation. You must ensure your flight is booked all the way through to Senai International Airport, and that your luggage is checked in all the way, as you will not be able to exit to Immigration at KLIA. This is because your exit point will be stated as Senai International Airport.

Only students with valid student visas will be able to enter Malaysia due to the covid restrictions and may need to follow the quarantine protocols depending on the travel bans.
