Malaysia today has a lot of Universities from U.K having their Asian Campuses there because of the support and active participation of the Govt of Malaysia. You could look at the Universities from U.K like Nottingham, Reading, Southampton along with Australia Universities like Monash and Swinburn. Good Malaysian Universities like Multimedia and UTM can be looked at.

Please provide your research presentations and publications when you apply along with all suporting documents.

With Best Wishes
