STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAMME
MoreThanJustExchange

UiTM welcomes International students from all over the world to experience a never before programme where it is not just about learning, it is about having fun in the tropical sun and exploring the uniqueness of this multi-racial country.

Becoming an exchange student gives you more than knowledge about another country, its language and culture. A semester abroad teaches you about building friendship, taking responsibilities for yourself, respecting differences and tolerating the beliefs of others.

Not only you will get to experience an exciting and challenging way of broadening your horizon, you will be able to spend a semester studying at the faculty of your choice. These results are credited towards your course in UiTM upon satisfactory completion of your exchange.
