Living costs in Kuala Lumpur can vary considerably depending on your lifestyle and the area and type of your accommodation. On average we would recommend that a single person should allow approximately RM1,000 – RM1,500 per month for living expenses; this figure is inclusive of accommodation costs, and assumes sharing a house or apartment with others. The living costs for married candidates and those with children will be higher.
Rented accommodation in Kuala Lumpur is easy to find, however the quality and location will determine the price. The rent would be around RM600-RM1000 per month for a one bedroom flat/apartment. We normally advise candidates to arrive at least two weeks before the programme starts to allow time to find accommodation. The Academic and Student Affairs Office will give you advice and information on how to find suitable accommodation, and put you in touch with fellow candidates who are looking to share a flat.
