Depending on your financial abilities, do consider twinning programmes. If you are eligible for scholarships, be on a lookout for them as many organizations do sponsor masters/PhD studies overseas.
Having an overseas degree definitely increases your employability within Malaysia
. However, since English is our 'second language' be mindful that you should have at least professional English language proficiency when job hunting in western countries.
With reference to replies above, my experience in Australia has proven that jobs are not that hard to come by. Australians are generally very impressed with our Asian 'to-do' attitude (if you have it). Honestly, even if you are an average performer in Malaysian schools, you're likely to feel really 'smart' here among the rest of the Australian students.
The main hurdle is to get over the residency requirement for many of the jobs here. What do I mean? Well, a majority of companies are not able/do not wish to employ non-PR/citizens. Hence, the number of jobs you can apply for is greatly diminished so you'll be disadvantaged in that sense. This is probably highly dependent on the industry you are in. Are you in I.T., Finance, Accounting, or something else? Do your research before you decide on which university or state you wish to study in, and keep your options open.
Even if you fail to get secure a job overseas after your studies, keep in mind that your overseas education would have already opened up so many doors back home in Malaysia This post has been edited by bunny65: Mar 6 2018, 09:12 AM
