Financial information

We understand that cost is a key factor when you decide on your study abroad destination. Reasonable cost of living and affordable tuition fees are one of the many benefits you will receive if you choose to study at Monash Malaysia.

Tuition fee (Study Abroad)

If you are a study abroad student, you will pay fees to Monash Malaysia (or your home university) for the units (subjects) you study while you are at Monash. On the other hand, exchange students do not need to pay additional tuition fees.

If you are paying your fees directly to Monash Malaysia, the tuition fee per semester in 2017 shall be:

Student classification (fee-paying students)Amount (to study up to 24 credit points)
Undergraduate studentsMYR19,000
Postgraduate studentsMYR19,800

If you pay fees to your home university, it may be a different amount than described above – perhaps because your home university offers a package which may include additional items such as accommodation, excursions and transport allowance.


Student Pass and Visas

Before entering Malaysia, all international students require a Student Pass and possibly an entry visa depending on your country of origin. There are different requirements and application processes, therefore, it is important to understand the travel requirements to Malaysia.

You are required to pay the Student Pass application fee of either MYR 1,322 for one (1) semester or MYR 2,008 for two (2) semesters in full upon accepting your exchange or study abroad offer. The fee includes the following:

  • Processing Fee
  • Student Pass Fee
  • Medical and Health insurance
  • Health screening
  • i-Kad

* You are advised to be certain in accepting your exchange or study abroad offer as the Student Pass application fee is non-refundable.

** Amount stated is subject to change

Please ensure you are familiar with the Student Pass and Visa requirements before arriving in Malaysia.


Living expenses

Cost of living in Malaysia is generally affordable but we understand that comparing costs may be subjective. You will find useful information on living costs in our International Students webpage to  help prepare for your stay in Malaysia.
