If you got an offer from USM-KLE, then its a no brainer - Choose USM-KLE, its an offer from IPTA for crying-out-loud.

http://www.usm.my/index.php/en/about-usm/n...an-usm-kle.html

If you reject that offer and took UCSI's offer instead... I'm sorry to say... that will be the STUPIDEST choice you will ever make in your life.

Go IPTA. You have the golden opportunity there mate! UCSI is just a normal University cramped into a small building. You won't have the feeling of University.

UCSI is underrated and the exams are quite a hurdle. USM-KLE is based more on a write-up and may not be what it is.

I am surprised you got such an early offer from UCSI for the Year 2011 intake!

I assume that TS is smart enough to get such offer from USM-KLE.

USM-KLE offer is an offer from an IPTA - which pawns every offer made by any IPTS in Malaysia. (Including UCSI's)

... and as an IPTA, the cost of program is damn cheap (if not free - due to scholarship) and moreover since it is conducted abroad, I assume that this program will come with sponsorship for the student (JPA is likely), a sponsored medical student in India will usually get USD700/month.

...and the Indian medical college in which USM is collaborating with is a WELL ESTABLISHED medical college in Karnataka (the same Indian state where - Kasturba Medical College, MMMC and MSU-IMS are located).

USM is collaborating with this medical college:

... and in case that the TS didn't read my reply in another thread here it is again:

Take the offer.

You will be studying in Northern Karnataka, India, there is a lot of Malaysians studying there at the moment.
There is one fellow in Lowyat studying there, he doesn't hang around education essentials but you can message him if you want to know more:

I can tell you a bit about India or Karnataka in general, just browse through the following (taken from another thread), you can read what is relevant (except MSU-IMS part):

Hi, I can't believe that this thread is still alive lol.

I am the 1st batch graduated student from USM-KLE and currently working in HTJS.
I'm so sorry but I'm not so much a writer, so maybe my writings is not in a very well composure to truly answer your question.

Overall, it was unregreatable moment in my life when I was asking from you guys opinion regarding my option before. It is totally a great experience to complete my study there.

At 1st, my batch was pioneered by only 48 students (with a max quota of 100 students) per batch. Initially, USM unable to get a proper hostel and we need to liaise with the local
university in Belgaum. However, when I was in 3rd-year, USM already get their own land and build our own hostel compound with shared facilities like futsal/ basketball court and swimming pool for sports.

We also able to strengthen our bond with MARA, and now most of us in USM-KLE was MARA sponsored. As for the university facilities for study medicine, it was as good as USM Kubang Kerian I guess,
but we do have a very big language barrier when trying to communicate as India have 40++ different languages and that does not even include slangs. Even the local medical officer there also
sometimes find it difficult to communicate but however, we do have several basic language classes to master basic questions.

As for curriculum-wise, it is totally the same and adopted from USM Kubang Kerian, the syllabus, the exam and etc will always be the same with the USM local, even timing of exam
will be adjusted in between both universities to ensure no cheating in an exam. Plus, the holiday that us in India get is even more, if Malaysia has PH, USM-KLE will be close
and if India has their PH, the university will be closed too. So we get more holidays in honoring both countries as the students are from Malaysia and all lecturers are from India.

We do have a bikers club in our university and we did travel to a lot of places. The people in India do indeed see us as "god" sometimes because those people that came to the hospital
mostly poor people and them indeed in need of help. Currently, USM already our own hospital for study clinical, our own patients and hospital staffs.

There was a lot I want to talk about since I was reminiscing back the moment when I needed to make my choice and asking opinion in this group. In general, it was the
best choice I made in my life, yet.

p/s: Do PM me if you need more information or you have more inquiry, hopefully, I can be at my best to provide you answers.

I was unable to get a sponsorship at 1st, but I totally forget how much did I pay to usm per semester. I'll ask around and get to you back ASAP.
