Student Mobility or Student Exchange programs enhance the learning experience of students by exposing them to the cultural, economic, political, educational and ecological aspects of other countries in order to develop global mindsets for career advancement and success in any environment. HELP University is a pioneer in such programs.

The 2017 Student Mobility Program (SMP) at HELP has been specially planned for students from Australia, Europe and America under the title Education for Peace and Prosperity (EPP). By employing HELP’s academic strength and pedagogy and juxtaposed against the backdrop of “Malaysia, truly Asia”, the SMP at HELP provides the opportunity for international students to expand their intellectual and cultural understanding of Asia through travel and study while remaining enrolled in their home institutions. The whole experience will develop the capabilities and talents of international students to become globally mobile and culturally adept and successful at working with diverse populations in an array of fields.

Under the SMP, graduate and undergraduate students from all over the world have taken credit and non-credit courses at HELP.


Studying at HELP in Malaysia exposes students to a global experience, with a diversity of ethnicities, religions, cultures, languages and business practices. English is widely used among the people, media and in public.

Malaysia is a microcosm of Asia where civilizations meet and the major religions are practiced freely: Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Taoism and Buddhism. Its colorful historical mosaic includes British, Portuguese, Dutch and Spanish elements which are represented in architecture, cuisine, lifestyle, festivals and social behavior.

Nyonya culture is unique to Malaysia. Nyonya (female) and Baba (male) are descendants of marriages between Chinese and Malays. Their culture is manifested in fashion, handicrafts, furniture and cuisine, and the HELP SMP includes visiting and sampling nyonya culture and cuisine in the states of Penang and Melaka, as well as in cosmopolitan Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia.

Malaysia has also benefitted from being geographically blessed by being at the crossroads of trade between the East and West. The Straits of Malacca is one of the most economically and politically important shipping lanes in the world and Malaysia has used this strategic location to grow its economy to becoming a highly industrialized, competitive country. The World Bank’s global Doing Business 2016 report places Malaysia at 18th place overall among the 189 economies covered in the survey.

In line with the global cultural immersion and education for peace and prosperity perspectives, HELP will be offering the following student mobility courses in 2017:
