Applied for student visa through a university but want to join another univ. ?

I want to start my Masters studies in malaysia and I applied for 2 universities in order to maximize my chances of studying abroad.

I was accepted in one of these universities and applied for the student visa through it, after a while I received the acceptance offer from the latter university which is my first desire to join.


Now my question is that since I have applied for the student visa through the first university, and now I want to defer/cancel the previous offer and join the latter university, would my visa application through the first university be a problem or stand in my way in joining the latter university?

or is there another solution that can be followed?


Your help will be much appreciated.

Dear Yassir,

Since Malaysian Visa is applied through university only & even on visa university name is always mentioned so if you are keen for change university . You have to inform it to both the Universities,

I hope this information will help you!
