The objectives of this study are to determine the factors that influence the choice of institution, the problems encountered and also to create a profile of international graduate students studying in Malaysia. The 344 respondents participating in this study are drawn from 6 public institutions of higher learning in Malaysia, namely, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, International Islamic University, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universiti Utara Malaysia and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Data is collected with the help from the Graduate Schools of the respective universities and analyzed using descriptive statistics and correlation method.

The students expressed their dissatisfaction on the facility provided by the universities. In conclusion, the study shows that Malaysia is on its way to becoming a strong education hub in the Asian region serving primarily Indonesia and the Middle East countries as an alternative to the traditional education destinations.
