Frankly speaking, I'm totally satisfied with the services which JMECC has offered. Their team are very professional when handling all the application and the commitment they have shown is most appreciated. About the university, I've enjoyed being a student here. The environment here is really suitable for me. Talking about the facilities here, there are so many things provided here and it is convenient for the student.In addition, the academic staffs are helpful and friendly. Loughborough University is a top ten university in UK. I have chosen the right university and I would like to recommend this university to anyone who is planning to study in UK especially those who plan to choose engineering course.

Hello,Nice to hear from you, studying at Taylors was a wonderful experience. The teachers were very helpful and encouraging, they always made sure we were up to date with our work. The structure of our classes and medium of study prepared us for university.The best thing about Taylors College is that I was able to meet different people from different places to know and learn about their country, heritage and culture which was very interesting. All in all, Taylors have provided me with an unforgettable chapter in life, and I do encourage other young students to excel their studies with Taylors College.

The staffs are very helpful at JMECC.

As for university life, you need to be able to exercise self-discipline while you're here because you have to do more self-study and the assignments are more challenging here. Apart from that do take time to explore the nearby places like the Saturday market we have in Hobart.

College food is not really fantastic but still edible. It would be great if future students learn how to cook before they get here. At night it's quite hard to find any eateries outside like in Malaysia. Well, at least that's the case for Hobart and especially in winter.

Institution : University of Melbourne

I would like to thank JMECC for assisting us from the initial process of application until we reach Australia. Melbourne is a very cosmopolitan city and it can accommodate most of the needs of our fellow Malaysian, namely, food and also places of worship. Public transport is efficient and you can find many fellow Malaysians here who are happy to lend their hand if you need any assistance.The University of Melbourne is one of the top universities in Australia for both undergraduate level and post doctorate. From my previous experience, JMECC will provide you ample information especially on the requirements needed by the university. The training given by the University is a world-class experience and the degree is sought after by many employers.

JM has helped me to find a great place for me to start my University life. The application to UTAS was all handled well and quick. It minimized the pressure and helped me to concentrate on how I am going to survive my first year in Tasmania. So i want to thank JM in general for making the process smooth.

Life as a University student is an experience that shouldn't be missed. It has taught me many important things about money and managing my time. I also learn about the Australian cultures and way of life by making friends with them and joining them in their activities. So to sum it up, going overseas to study, you may need to leave your comfort zone but it will all be worth the invaluable experience. I want to wish anyone who is going overseas all the best and good luck.

Programme : Bachelor of Psychology

Thanks to JMECC, the procedures for applying to Australian universities were done very efficiently and I did not have to worry about anything as the staffs are always helpful and ready to give any advices if needed. My studying experience in UniSA, Adelaide, is an interesting and eye-opening one. Lecturers and tutors are easily reached via e-mail if we have any questions. One thing I enjoy most about studying in UniSA is that I get to meet many students from all around the world. This helps me in Psychology, the program I'm taking, because I would be meeting different people with different backgrounds and culture in the future!

The people here are extremely helpful and I felt welcomed the instant I came here and I still felt that way. Just went through the long winter, it's spring now and flowers are starting to bloom. I am starting to appreciate flowers and sunshine after winter, since previously it was taken for granted to have sunshine the whole year round in Malaysia. However after going through winter, I just realized their presence made that much difference.

I've already started teaching and it's been 2 months, everything is fine and well. I'm very grateful for the services that JMECC has provided; thanks for sending the emails on behalf of my parents! They've done all the procedures very fast and efficiently, which are great, also patiently explaining and answering all the enquiries we had made.

Programme : PhD [Science]
Institution : Victoria University of Wellington

New Zealand is one of the most unique countries in the world. Almost geographically isolated from the rest of the world, New Zealand offers the most unique opportunity in natural science studies. However, the procedure and regulations to study in New Zealand is also one of the most particular and pedantic process. Luckily, JMECC was there for us. The staff are really helpful, friendly and very efficient in helping out with the process. For me and my wife, our registration process at Victoria University of Wellington, visa application and even the initial temporary accommodation were done by JMECC. Best of all, it’s free!We've been in New Zealand for a year and a half (and blessed with a baby recently). Life in New Zealand is quite challenging, but it is also one of the most memorable experiences in our lives.

I would like to record my sincere thanks to all the staff of JMECC for their kindness, help and useful information. I was able get all the information that I need from JMECC during my preparation to further studies at overseas. I was actually quite surprised when JMECC didn't charge a single cent for providing such services. University of Canterbury has a well-maintained website with up-to-date information. This is indeed very useful for international students like us. In my experience, I was very encouraged by the efficiency of the university's administration. The duration of my application to enrol took less than 1 month. Thanks again to JMECC, for everything.

Name : Phoon Hooi San
Programme : PhD [Speech & Language Therapy]
Institution : University of Canterbury

After a few years of being in the hustle and bustle of a hectic working life in Penang, I decided to do my PhD study in New Zealand, in 2007. I was recommended by a good friend to approach JMECC in Penang for assistance with my university application. I was truly satisfied with the services provided by JMECC. The staff members were very friendly, helpful and caring. At the initial stage, they helped me to apply for an enrolment with the University of Canterbury and for scholarships. Once I was accepted, they helped me to arrange for my medical check up, and apply for the good conduct certificate and visa. They diligently followed up on all matters in these regards. At the later stage, the staff members briefed me about making the right preparation to study and live in New Zealand. They even arranged the airport pick up for me when I first arrived in Christchurch. The whole process of applying to study in New Zealand was very smooth and well-taken care of.

My experience in studying abroad has been beneficial and unforgettable. I love every day of my life in Christchurch: the pace of living, the people, the culture, the art, the buildings, sceneries, etc. There is always something new to experience and explore, such as skiing, rock-climbing, cycling in the forest, swimming with the dolphins, tramping etc. Studying in University of Canterbury is very different than all the schools I had been to. I find it exciting and informational at the same time. My academic supervisors are very experienced and thoughtful. I take a more probing attitude in my thinking towards research nowadays. I highly recommend this institution to those who intend to undertake their post-graduate studies. To me, it is a chance of a lifetime, and something that no one should miss.

JMECC services were so good, thanks to Jabatan Pendaftar UUM for giving JMECC’s card to me. And when someone asked me how they could apply for the visa for NZ, UK etc., I always ask them to consult JMECC. Unfortunately, not many PhD students would like to come here. We are happy here and some of our pictures can be seen at http://irfan1001.fotopages.com/.
