Student Testimonials

Abdullah Muamar Ali Najem, Libya

Diploma in Information Technology

I am from Libya. I have heard a lot about Malaysia when I was in my country. I found Cosmopoint via the internet and right now I am proud to be a second semester student of this institute. Coming to Malaysia was a great experience for me as I learned a lot about culture and people. The three races of Malays, Chinese and Indian are really a wonder that I can’t describe, the love and friendship between them is really a great thing.


Ali Muamar Ali Najem, Libya

Diploma in Information Technology

To me, Cosmopoint offers excellent education. Cosmopoint is a student’s best way to secure a good job after getting a diploma or degree as it has a strong vocational emphasis and industry related curriculum. I am very positive that in the end, having been a Cosmopoint student will be one of the most important periods of my life in that it will help me set up my future and have a good job in the IT line of business.


Ismail Abdul Kadir Mohamed, Somalia

Information Technology, 3 Years

KLMU is one of the famous institutions in Malaysia. The reason why I chose KLMU to study is because the duration of studies is shorter compared to other colleges. In addition to that, the best thing about KLMU is the friendly atmosphere and people. I have never felt alone and I’m treated like any other students.







Mohammad Saiduzzaman, Bangladesh / Dhaka

Diploma In IT, 2 Years 8 Months

Malaysia is a nice country to stay and study in. I am proud to be one of the students in the Information Technology Faculty because KLMU has prepared for us all the necessary facilities to study. We have good computer labs to use and reference books at library. I feel like I am studying at a first class global university like in the US or UK.

Studying at KLMU has been comfortable because all my classmates can accept me even though I‘m from a third world country. We have a good relationship and all lecturers are responsible and teach very well. There are a lot of foreign students studying at KLMU and they bring different cultures together. Sometimes, I don’t miss my own country because I feel happy and comfortable studying at KLMU.

I will try to learn as much as possible in my time at KLMU. I’m interested to know and learn as many new things as I can. I might even stay on here after I finish studying if I find a job in Malaysia.


Mohammed Asif, Pakistan

Diploma in Multimedia

The culture of Malaysia is a great experience for me, especially the people who make you feel like one of them. It is really strange for me to see three different races living together so peacefully. As far as the food is concerned, it is not a big problem because I find my country’s food just around any corner. The reason I chose Malaysia as my place of study because the education in Malaysia is well recognized by other countries.


Mowlid Abdi Hussein, Somalia

Information Technology, 3 Years

KLMU is one of the best places to study in Malaysia. We have good lecturers and facilities, and it is also at the heart of the city enabling us to travel around easily. Our lessons are based on career oriented courses. We are given projects to do and it’s interesting as we get to explore the real world practice rather than emphasis on the theory. I am confident this will give me a solid foundation which enable me start off my career in the coming years.
