University recognized by Malaysian government

Gannon University has been formally recognized by Malaysia’s Ministry of Education.

The recognition will allow the university to continue to increase its international student population.

As a result, Gannon has been awarded a Malaysian Quality Assurance Certification (MQAC), said Thomas B. Hassett, the University’s director of international admissions.

“The recognition by the Ministry of Education is very significant from the standpoint that it will allow Gannon to much more effectively and aggressively recruit students from Malaysia,” Hassett said. “We’re very excited and grateful for the support of the Malaysian government.”

Specifically, the recognition will further Gannon’s efforts to enroll government-sponsored students from Malaysia. Such students receive tuition assistance to study in the U.S.

The recognition also provides greater credibility to the Gannon degrees earned by Malaysian students, Hassett said. Gannon also holds similar recognitions by other governments, including Turkey and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and enrolls nearly 300 international students from 22 countries.
