One of the main and most popular function of the programme is designed specifically for non-local students—it recommends and provides a variety of ways to spend free time in Kuala Lumpur such as day trips to interesting places, special events, recommended restaurants, bars, sports events, and many other activities available in Malaysia.

Our students will receive regular updates through their email or through the official social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter.

We recommend a range of local accommodation at competitive prices for you and will assist in negotiating with landlords for the best rates and facilities. Students have the right to choose their own accommodation; frequently, students share accommodation with their friends to make rental more cost effective. Normally, students will sign a rental agreement directly with the landlord. 

International students have the same choices as local students, but government rules require the contract to be made between IUMW and the landlord. Student affairs will be responsible for this negotiation. Early application for accommodation is highly recommended.
