Living in Malaysia
Accommodation, either on-campus or off-campus, is reasonable and within the students’ budget. The cost of living while you are studying in Malaysia will depend on the location and lifestyle you keep up with.
The average monthly rental for a single room (twin-sharing) per student is between RM250 and RM450 (USD68 to USD122). Other expenses such as food, transportation, laundry and other essentials, based on an ordinary lifestyle, are estimated to be between RM600 and RM700 (USD162 to USD189 per month).
Therefore, the total cost of living will average to approximately between RM900 and RM1,200 (USD243 to USD324) per month or about RM11,000 to RM14,000 (USD 2,973 to USD3,784) per year (12 months) for one student. Again, this is dependent on the student’s style of living, as well as the cost of living that varies from one location to another.
