    I always wanted to pursue my MBA from Malaysia. I applied to 2-3 universities through the online mode and got selected here at the University of Nottingham. I have paid RM 200 for the application which I have made for this university on the official website.

    Fees :

    I have paid RM 67000 for the whole program other than the accommodation facilities.

    My cousin sister studied from the same college a few years back, and she got placed in a reputed organization. Following her steps I enrolled myself in the college. I filled up the online application form and went ahead with the further application process.

    Fees :

    The amount that I paid in the form of tuition fee was close to RM 36,000. As far as I remember, I paid an additional fee of RM1000 as a mandatory fee. My books and supplies cost precisely came under RM 2000. I don't think I had to pay any other fee other than above mentioned.
