    One of my relatives living in Malaysia was inviting me for a long to go there and stay with them for some time. The cousins there also wanted me to spend some time with them. They also offered me to pursue my studies from there. I gave it a thought and asked my parents about it and they agreed. I choose the Universiti Teknologi because it was nearest to my relative's residence. I submitted my online on the official website.
