Virtual Mobility Programme 2021

Announcement: Temporary Cancellation of Physical Inbound Exchange Programme at UKM for March 2021 & October 2021 Intake due to the Policy of the Malaysian Government.

UKM has created the Virtual Mobility Programme through collaborative online international learning starting in October 2020. This initiative provides opportunities for students from partner universities to join a semester study programme in UKM. Without having to be in Malaysia, students still have the opportunity to attend classes and complete the programme with experienced lecturers as well as be able to take home credit units for each course registered besides a cultural exposure through activities organized with UKM student buddies throughout the semester.

Let’s join exchange programme at UKM!
