This program mobilizes students from any overseas institution to study at HELP University for a period of one semester to one year. Courses are available in most disciplines and are part of the regular undergraduate curriculum, enabling international students to study alongside HELP University students. The courses undertaken at the host university may be credited towards the students’ program of study at their own institution, subject to the academic regulations of the home institution.

Students are responsible for their own tuition, administrative, visa application fees and any other fees payable to the host institution. Students also have to bear their own cost of living, accommodation and transport (flight and land) expenses.

Application Terms and Conditions
  • All applications are subject to the approval of the host institution.
  • All applications are also subject to the issuance of the Visa Approval Letter (VAL) by the Immigration Department of Malaysia. If your Student Pass application is unsuccessful, you will not be granted entry into the Student Abroad Program at HELP University.
  • If you submit any additional documents too late for us to submit the Student Pass application on your behalf, we reserve the right at all times to reject your application. Thus it is important that you submit all the relevant documents on time.
