About Us

International Student and Scholar Services (I3S), UTM International is located at S19 building, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Johor Bahru. The goal of the UTM I3S is to provide services that promote and support international education at the university. All members of the university community and international students are welcome to come to the UTM I3S and meet in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
Staff are available on site to share their knowledge from issues such as immigration, crossing cultures and opportunities abroad, to tips on how to successfully adapt to Malaysian society. We also provides student mobility or international programs for inbound and outbound students. The Centre provides services to over 3000 international students attending the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia from over 50 countries.
Adapting to a new cultural environment and a new education system presents many challenges and barriers. For many students, the greatest difficulties often arise from the absence of a social support system, inadequate English proficiency and the emotional stress of coping with a new environment. I3S staff has special expertise and offers a wide range of services and programs to help students establish a support network, improve their spoken English and effectively deal with psychological and emotional stress.
