4 Reasons Why Ipoh Is The Right Place to Get Quality University Education

By Quest International University Perak

Ipoh’s a beautiful, charming city with so much going for it—natural wonders, a vibrant mix of cultures, modern amenities, and stunning architecture. 

But some people think that they need to leave Ipoh or Perak to get the university experience they want. We’re here to tell you why that’s not really the case—and here are some reasons why:


Online Education 

Unfortunately during the pandemic, learning is going to be online. And while we hope things will return to normal soon, there’s a possibility that online learning is going to be a big part of education for a while. 

If students will be learning from home, it makes sense for Ipoh and Perak folk to study in a local university. All you need is an internet connection and your computer. And once you resume blended or face-to-face learning, you’ll save money on transport, petrol, living costs, and hostel fees if you’re studying in Ipoh. 


Lower Living Costs 

Speaking of which, Ipoh is blessed with a relatively low cost of living compared to other big cities in Malaysia. Rent is cheaper, food is cheaper (without losing out on quality or variety) and we have some great attractions. 

The university experience doesn’t have to be an expensive one. Ipoh gives you the opportunity to build lasting memories and gain a life-changing education without breaking the bank. 


Global Community in Our City

We’ve got a truly multicultural student population in Ipoh. Students from over 40 countries call Ipoh their home. They bring an incredible tapestry of varied experiences, perspectives and worldviews. 

University life is all about meeting new people and learning from them. You will be able to gain a well-rounded view of your chosen field and become a truly global graduate. And isn’t that what you want from your degree? 


Ipoh is Incredible!

They always say the grass appears greener on the other side. But in case you didn’t know, Ipoh is a hotbed of culture and art with a stunning culinary scene. The city is ever-expanding as well. 

It blends a peaceful hassle-free ambience with all the modern amenities a student would need for a memorable university experience. 

Oh, and we’re not the only ones in love with the Bougainvillea City. It’s been listed by renowned travel siteThe Lonely Planet as one of the 10 best Asian destinations to visit

By the way, if you’re a coffee aficionado, it’s also been listed as one of the Top 3 Best Coffee Towns in Asia. And we all know that if there’s one thing students need, it’s coffee!
