    It was my dream to explore and spend some time in Malaysia. So, I decided to study in Malaysia so that I can explore as well as I can pursue my bachelor's. I applied to this university because of its reputation and also because it was economical. I applied for the admission through the UPU by paying a fee of RM 160.

    Fees :

    I have to pay RM 20000 for the fee, RM 3000 for EMGS & Application, RM 6600 for registration, and RM 1500 for resources. This is the first year fee which I have paid. The second-year fee will be less.
