Study now, fly later: 5 reasons why online learning will benefit Malaysian international students

Apart from in-person teaching when borders reopen, online learning is now part of an exciting new normal.

Despite the uncertainty posed by the pandemic, you don’t have to push back your goals. Apart from raising health and safety measures, institutions abroad are introducing blended learning - where you’ll be offered online classes before flying over when in-person teaching kicks in.

IELTS is available in 10 convenient locations in Malaysia to help you progress with your university applications. Check out our list of test centres and schedules here.

While online learning is not new, it now plays a fundamental role in a student’s path to an overseas degree.

For students who’re still wondering if you can study abroad, or if you’re unsure whether online learning is effective, we’ve rounded up five key reasons that would help you make a decision.

Start your semester despite closed borders

While uncertainty remains over when borders will reopen, many overseas institutions are rolling out blended learning. This way, your time is maximised and you can stick to your goals - before eventually being allowed to fly over for in-person classes. 

For the likes of the UK and Ireland, this is not an issue as the borders are open for students to travel if they choose to start their studies on campus this Sept/Oct. You do have the option to start online before flying over for face to face classes in early 2021.   

More affordable tuition fees and scholarships

The global pandemic has resulted in financial repercussions for many people and overseas institutions are responding to that. A number of them are introducing discounted tuition fees and scholarships which would help alleviate the financial burden for both students and parents.

Teaching quality and effectiveness

There are some concerns raised by students regarding online learning and one of them pertains to teaching quality. Also, since learning takes place at home, some parents and students feel that the situation does not justify the tuition fees.

To address the above, institutions assure that online lessons are taught by experienced lecturers who use sophisticated technology and communication tools to facilitate the sessions. Such platforms also allow students from all nationalities to engage with one another and make new friends.

Save time and money

Since students will be learning from home, they’ll get to save on accommodation and general cost of living expenses. Students can also adapt to online learning with the array of showcase webinars and demo classes provided by some institutions.

Increased flexibility

The flexibility to pick online courses and plan one’s schedule is a key trait of online learning, made even easier with recorded sessions. Some institutions even allow students to defer to the next intake if they feel that they are unable to cope with online learning.
