Education

EduCity is the destination for educational excellence in the region. Its development has catalysed the influx of high-quality schools and universities into the Iskandar Malaysia.

Education has been pegged by the Malaysian government as one of 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEAs). Concessions and incentives at the federal and state level have already attracted renowned institutions, and it is expected that these and other premium tertiary establishments will inject a steady supply of well-educated graduates into the Malaysian workforce.

To accommodate the educational institutions, Iskandar Investment has created EduCity, a broad multi-campus community that boasts exceptional facilities. The catalytic nature of EduCity will attract business establishments to support the students, faculty and requirements of the institutions themselves. Cafes, shops, sports clubs, hotels and other such facilities will mushroom to accommodate the thousands who give and receive education in the community.

The list of educational establishments below represent confirmed developments that will be open and accepting students within the next two years:

  • Newcastle University Medical Malaysia
  • University of Southampton Malaysia
  • University of Reading Malaysia
  • Marlborough College Malaysia
  • Netherlands Maritime Institute of Technology
  • Raffles University Iskandar
  • Raffles American School

In line with these NKEAs, the Malaysian government has thrown its weight behind Iskandar Investment’s initiative to bring world-class education colleges and universities to the country. Concessions and incentives at the federal and state level have already attracted renowned institutions such as Newcastle University, the University of Southampton and the University of Reading. These and other premium tertiary establishments will inject a steady supply of well-educated graduates into the Malaysian workforce.

To accommodate the incoming educational institutions, Iskandar Investment has created EduCity, a broad multi-campus community that boasts exceptional facilities. The catalytic nature of EduCity will attract business establishments to support the students, faculty and requirements of the institutions themselves. Cafes, shops, sports clubs, hotels and other such facilities will mushroom to accommodate the thousands who give and receive education in the community.
