Number of Malaysian students rises rapidly

According to statistics of the Ministry of Education, the number of Malaysian students has reached 13,000, and among all the Southeast Asian exchange students, half of them are from Malaysia.

Besides Chinese students, the second largest numbers of foreign students are from Malaysia, with their proportion being the fastest rising in recent years. A Malaysian exchange student indicated that many overseas Chinese in Malaysia chose to enter independent junior schools to study Chinese courses, but they suffer from discrimination while applying for college, so the only choice for most of them is to study abroad, and Taiwan has became the top choice for them.

National Taiwan University started to hold the entrance exam independent from official examinations for overseas student this year, and offers NT$1.2 million scholarships for four years for each of them.
