Student Testimonials

Adrian Lo Chih Liang

Bachelor of Computer Science

The environment at Monash University Malaysia is as such that it trains its students to be very independent. Each individual student is allowed to explore how best one learns. In other words, the success of a student at Monash is in his/her own hands. This in a way helps students to find their own space and self. At the same time, students also learn to work in teams with each other, exposing themselves to different schools of thoughts and people from different backgrounds. The University, by being open to the ideas and proposals from students, encourages students to make more opportunities to do things and dare things they have never done before, making them more independent and creative.


Chong Pei Lin

Bachelor of Business and Commerce

The facilities at Monash University Malaysia is by far the best that I have seen, fully equipped with multimedia facilities in their lecture theatres, computer labs and the library. The learning environment here is also very conducive and systematic. In addition, the lecturers here are open and easy to talk to, traits that are very helpful to students.


Ong Choong Leo

Bachelor of Business and Commerce

The facilities here are very up-to-date, particularly the computer labs and library resources. The engineering and science labs are also constantly improved which tells us that improving the education facilities is one of the first few priorities for the University. Monash Malaysia offers a good environment professionally and socially. Professionally, in the sense that we (students) are encouraged to learn and pick up things ourselves. Socially, the University campus offers many places to forge and build friendships that can last a lifetime.


Angga Bohdan, Indonesia

Bachelor of Business and Commerce, 3 years (first year student)

I have heard of many positive things about Malaysia especially its diverse ethnicity and cultures. I wanted to experience the Asian culture and Malaysia is the perfect representation of Asia with its diverse population.

Studying in Monash University is an experience in itself. In my view, the diverse student population makes Monash Malaysia unique. I am staying in the condominium student hostel and my housemates are from different countries. Despite the differences in our cultures and backgrounds, we share an excellent friendship and bond. We learn to respect each other’s cultures.


Carolina Margaret, Indonesia

Bachelor of Business and Information Technology, 3rd Year

Monash’s strong reputation and the similarity in culture between Malaysia and Indonesia had prompted me to choose this university. My greatest concern when I first came to Monash was communicating with fellow students and lecturers because I lacked proficiency in English. In Indonesia, English is not even taught as a second language and the language is hardly spoken by students. All the hardship seemed to have paid off. I am now adapting well to the local culture, the people, the food — also, my English has improved tremendously. The transportation system here is very efficient - it makes outing a lot easier and fun. Back home, I hardly go out on my own because I have to rely a lot on my parents or friends for transport. I find Monash’s students and staff very friendly and this made my transition to university a breeze.


Hasuli Perera, Sri Lanka

PhD in Business, First Year

I couldn’t have asked for a better university. I was greatly satisfied with the units I took for my undergraduate course as the subjects were very interesting, the assignments intellectually stimulating, and the lecturers wonderful. During my Honours year I realised how supportive the staff in the research office of the School of Business could be. They were extremely helpful during that last year, and the facilities were, no doubt, excellent. I graduated with a First Class and received the Overall Best Honours Student Award and now I’m doing my PhD here as well.




Nadeesha Randini Wickrama, Sri Lanka

Bachelor of Business and Commerce, 1st Year

My decision to join Monash was largely influenced by my father, who used to travel to Malaysia on business trips. He felt that enrolling at the Malaysia Campus would allow me to obtain an internationally recognized degree at a fraction of the cost, without me having to go to Australia. My experience studying at Monash so far has been pretty good. What’s great is that the university has quite a big pool of students from Sri Lanka, so I feel very much at home here. The lecturers are very helpful and I find the quality of teaching to be of high standard, but students must be prepared to work hard. At Monash, the rigour of academic life can either make or break you, so it is important for students to have good time management skills for them to strike a balance between their study and leisure. Constant revision is the key to success - at least for me. I was happy to have made it into the Business and Economics Board of Examiners’ Commendation List roll of honours for academic excellence this year.


Nadia Nam Woo Kim, Korea

Bachelor of Arts (Global), Second Year


I chose to come to Monash University because the diversity in subjects caters to my study preference. For instance, the flexibility of the arts programme has enabled me to pursue a major in international studies and a minor in communication. Monash offers me a lot of opportunities to further my studies overseas through the Monash Passport and Monash Abroad programme.






Sabrina Islam, Bangladesh

Bachelor of Business and Commerce, 3 years

Malaysia is unique because although it is a developing nation, some parts of it are highly developed. In particular are the Petronas Twin Towers, Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the ‘grand’ shopping complexes and the lush greenery.

I aspire to become a successful economist in order to contribute to the development of Bangladesh. Under the tutelage of Monash academics that are highly qualified, I hope to acquire the required skills to fulfill my dream.


Victoria Abelyan, Russia

Bachelor of Arts - Communications and International Studies

The diversity here at Monash is really cool as I am able to meet many people from different backgrounds. Apart from that, the opportunity for me to study abroad is also a great thing.


Yu Zhuolin, China

Bachelor of Business and Commerce, 1st Year

Coming to Malaysia has been a great learning experience for me. I get to know about this beautiful country, her friendly people and colourful culture. It’s fascinating to see how people from different backgrounds and cultures can live together in peace and harmony. The friendliness of its people overwhelms me - it makes my stay here so much fun. I must say that Monash University Malaysia’s international student services department has done a great job in helping foreign students settle down. The staff has been most caring and helpful.
