Chinese University Expands Into Malaysia

Xiamen University in Fujian Province announced last week that it would open its first overseas campus in the Malaysian state of Selangor in September 2015.

Prime Minister Najib Razak of Malaysia said that the Selangor branch would initially take in 10,000 students, reported Bernama, the Malaysian state news agency. The student body would be divided into thirds, consisting of Chinese nationals, Malaysians and others.

The Malaysian campus, which will have five faculties and about 700 teaching staff members, is projected to cost 600 million Malaysian ringgit, or almost $200 million.
