Malaysia is a very popular study destination among Sri Lankan students wishing to pursue the higher education overseas and it is also a very popular study destination among global international student community. In the Asian region it has established itself as an education hub. Most Asian parents prefer Malaysia because there is a similarity in cultures where school leavers can experience some degree of independence in a loosely controlled environment before moving in to more liberal but very complex societies of the west for their postgraduate studies.
In Sri Lanka we have a habit of collecting certificates. It is quite common to see for an example engineering students studying professional study programmes in commerce. Sri Lankans believe that having many qualifications will lead to good employment prospects. Rationally thinking does it matter to an employer how many certificates the employee has collected. For an employer what matters most is finding an employee who can do a job of work. In Sri Lanka there is a culture of rote learning.
