Abstract

In the myriad discourse of internationalization of higher education, the Malaysian technical and vocational (TVE) higher education institutions are in the inclusion of the agenda. This paper analyses the efforts of Malaysian TVE higher education institutions in the attempt to internationalize their education through expanding the number of international students. The focus is then narrowed to one major player of the TVE institution particularly to the trend of its international students’ recruitment from the Middle Eastern and African regions. This paper reviews the education system in related regions and outlines how doctoral research is being set up to investigate on the academic adjustment of international students from these regions into the Malaysian TVE setting.
