Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) will recognize the degrees issued by Taiwan's 157 universities and colleges, while Taipei's Higher Education Evaluation & Accreditation Council of Taiwan (HEEACT) will recognize the degrees issued by 121 Malaysian universities and colleges.This is by far the best news for students currently studying at Malaysia Chinese Independent Schools where majority of the students are mostly planning to further studies at Taiwan. The second best news was China. Why suddenly all the good news to the Chinese community in Malaysia? Hint: Malaysia General Election (GE) 2013 is coming very soon!
Deputy Minister of Ministry Higher Education Dato Dr. Hou Kok Chung said that of the 121 university and college degrees recognised by HEEACT, 19 are Malaysia public universities (IPTA), 28 private universities (IPTS), 15 private university colleges, 3 recognized higher education institutions and 56 colleges providing twinning programmes.
