Before arriving in Malaysia, I was pretty curious about the people, the culture and the surrounding. I did not expect much from the people but after coming here, I realized that people are friendlier and more helpful than I thought. This definitely helped to make me comfortable as I am basically a shy person. The University is great and I have made lots of friends here. I think it is a very good place for International students looking to study abroad as AIMST provides accommodating guidance and facilities to international students. I am enjoying myself here and glad that I opted to study in AIMST University.
