Experience the magic of Malaysia—a rich collage of cultures, modern buildings next to traditional spice markets, and rainforests teeming with rare and endangered species. Imagine how your résumé will stand out from the rest of your peers with an experience in this fascinating South China Sea nation!

Native Malays share citizenship with ethnic Chinese and Indians, and though the state religion is Islam, Buddhist shrines and Hindu temples are as commonplace as Islamic mosques. This diversity is celebrated throughout the year with many different multicultural festivals.

AFSers attend a local high school and live with a host family. You will have have the opportunities to visit spice markets and learn about local activities like sepak takraw (a kickball type of volleyball), giant top spinning, and kite-flying.

School Yearlong Program offers you a great opportunity to live and study in another country for a period of up to 11 months.  This program will suit you if you really want to live with a host family, learn a new language and feel a part of a local community.
