EducationUSA Advising Centers in Malaysia

EducationUSA Advising Centers in Malaysia have been hosted by the Malaysian-American Commission on Educational Exchange (MACEE) since the 1970s. EducationUSA Centers are supported by the U.S. Department of State. Malaysia has centers in Kuala Lumpur and Penang.

EducationUSA is a network of 430 international student advising center in 178  countries and territories where students and parents find accurate, comprehensive, and current information about how to apply to accredited U.S. colleges and universities.  Advisers are well trained and highly experienced. They guide students from the familiarization and searching stage all the way to their departure for the USA. Advisers maintain ties with United States university representatives and staff, current international students, and returning alumni. Advising services help students understand the U.S. higher education system and prepare strong university applications.

We believe students will be better prepared to succeed if they are actively involved in researching, selecting, and applying to the schools of their choice. Advisers are pleased to guide students each step of the way.

Studying in the United States provides international students an outstanding education and also the self-confidence, friendships, professional contacts, cultural experiences, and English proficiency to benefit their careers and daily lives.
