Private higher education in Malaysia: A collapse or rejuvenation?

Xiamen University Malaysia has taken strict measures to ensure students’ safety amid the Covid-19 crisis and has even implemented an online learning programme to cater for 1,800 of its students who returned to China during the recent semester break and were unable to return to Malaysia. - AP CHEE HONG/The Star file pic dated 21 Feb 20

MURRAY Hunter’s report headlined “The Collapse of Malaysian Private Universities”? in the Asia Sentinel on April 2,2020 on the state of the private higher education industry in Malaysia, surely generated much concern.

The Asian Sentinel is a Hong Kong-based publication that has published not necessarily positive articles on Malaysian Higher Education in 2016 and 2019. While it must be admitted there are some facts in this article that highlighted the fact that the Covid–19 crises is potentially catastrophic, the report used data from a private university research conducted in late 2018.
