Ambitious international students applying to private higher education institutions in Malaysia can now use the internationally recognised qualifications to prove their English language ability. The qualifications are all aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR), the international standard of English language ability.
‘Recruiting students with the right levels of English language ability remains a key challenge for universities in Malaysia,’ explains Carmen Le Regional Recognition Manager at Cambridge Assessment English.
‘We’re delighted to get this level of recognition as it shows how seriously Malaysia is taking on this challenge. Our qualifications help students to get the real-life communication skills they need for success. This not only helps them to cope with the English language demands of their courses, but it helps them to settle into their student lives and have a positive experience. The move will also help universities to attract more international students.’

Helping Improve English Standards in Malaysia
Anna Greene, Programme Director Malaysia, reports on the first visit for a joint Programme Board meeting between Cambridge English Language Assessment and the Ministry of Education in Malaysia
Two days into my new role as Programme Director, Malaysia Project, at Cambridge English Language Assessment and I’m already on a plane heading to Kuala Lumpur for the first joint project board meeting with colleagues from Cambridge English and the Ministry of Education (MoE).
The board meeting will bring together the team at Cambridge English and key members from the Ministry to discuss how we will work together to reform their English language education.

The aim is to help drive the Malaysian reform agenda, with the end goal of supporting the Malaysian government to raise the standard of English language learning, teaching and assessment. We have trained 270 MoE teachers and lecturers as Master Trainers and they in turn have cascaded the training down to over 11,000 teachers. (...cont'd)
