Over the past ten years, this collaboration has grown beyond academic excellence, encompassing a deep commitment to shaping international education and fostering life-changing experiences for students from around the world.

A Shared Vision: The Power of Cultural Exchange and Shaping International Education

From the very beginning, Asia Exchange and UPM shared a common vision – the belief in the transformative power of cultural exchange and the importance of international education. This shared vision has been the cornerstone of our partnership, propelling us to new heights in the field of global education.

Beyond Academic Excellence: Exceptional Service

Our partnership with UPM is not solely defined by academic excellence, though that is undoubtedly a core component. What sets UPM apart is their unwavering dedication to providing exceptional service to our students. They have consistently gone the extra mile to accommodate our students and make them feel valued when studying in Malaysia. From patiently answering our questions to guiding us through the entire process, UPM has been a true partner in every sense.

It’s not just about academics; it’s about caring for each student’s experience, enabling life-changing moments. UPM’s commitment to the personal growth and well-being of students has been commendable. They understand that studying abroad is not just about textbooks and lectures; it’s about exploring new cultures, broadening horizons, and gaining a deeper understanding of the world.

A Remarkable Friendship

Our journey with UPM has not just been a professional collaboration; it’s been a remarkable friendship. We have witnessed the growth of both UPM and Asia Exchange over the years, sharing in the highs and lows and turning every challenge into an opportunity for improvement. Through it all, our shared determination to provide students with the best study abroad experiences has remained unwavering.

We would like to thank AE for the progressive partnership throughout the years in bringing inbound mobility students to UPM which has contributed an immense significance towards the university’s internationalisation in bringing diversified inbound student populations.

Delighted to Work with One of the World’s Top Universities

Being able to work with one of the top 1% ranked universities in the world has been a source of immense pride for Asia Exchange. UPM’s commitment to academic excellence, research, and innovation has consistently propelled them to the upper echelons of global education. We are honored to have been a part of their journey for the past decade.

Strategic Partners Bringing Value

Our partnership with UPM in Kuala Lumpur has been strategically invaluable, not only to our company but primarily to the students who choose our services to study abroad as freemovers. Malaysia’s vibrant culture, diverse society, and rich history provide an ideal backdrop for international education, making it a sought-after destination for students worldwide. UPM’s contributions to this partnership have been instrumental in providing students with a holistic study abroad experience.

670 Students’ Transformational Journey

Starting with sending undergraduate students to UPM in 2013, the partnership later expanded the opportunity to postgraduate students from their partner university. Throughout the past decade, an impressive 670 students from Europe, North Africa, the United States of America, and South America were able to embark on a transformational journey, studying abroad at UPM through Asia Exchange. These students have not only gained valuable academic knowledge but have also experienced personal growth, cultural immersion, and unforgettable memories. This number underscores the significance of our partnership in providing life-changing opportunities to students around the world.
