International students must have at least twelve (12) years of education and have undergone a national/international examination recognized by the Ministry of Education for the purpose of admission to a diploma or degree programs. Apart from this, the candidate must meet the individual Malaysian institution eligibility requirements in order to be applicable for a Malaysia student visa. It is important to note that if a student has completed his previous studies from an English-speaking country then the student does not have to appear for tests like GRE, SAT, TOEFL, and IELTS. If the student belongs to a non-English speaking country, then he or she should take a test for English. In order to pursue an education in Malaysia, a candidate must have an IELTS score of at least 6.0. However, at times, GRE, GMAT might be a prerequisite for certain courses depending on the university.
