Hundreds of Malaysians have graduated from France and 957 Malaysian students are currently (in 2011) studying in French institutions. It is also our aspiration to ensure sustained linkages and network among the community.

Dynamise and strengthen the community of Malaysian students who have studied in France is relayed thanks to several actors in France and in Malaysia who creates events and tools to make the network useful and alive.

Le Direktori

In order to ensure continuous linkage and contact among the graduates, it became clear that an organized information book was necessary to ensure continuous contact and networking among the alumni from French universities and 'Grandes Ecoles'. The Malaysia-France University Centre (MFUC) took the leading role in organising this important information book, named as Le Direktori, by encouraging alumni to register on the website In 2011, almost 1,200 have been identified and MFUC updates everyday new information, new alumni and new students.

Connect with French companies

The MFUC is member of the Malaysian-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MFCCI) and participates to the Human Resource Commitee. Together they organize every year a Career Fair in order to connect the French companies based in Malaysia with Malaysians freshly graduates coming back from France and looking for a good position. Indeed, the demand for job opportunities is high, coming from those young and talented Malaysians in various fields. The demand for bright and long-sighted employees is even higher, coming from eager French companies, investing in long term HR resources and with a number growing. Such a dynamic market enables obvious synergies upon the Annual French Career Fair in November.

The cocktail of alumni organized every year at the Residence the French Embassy in Malaysia, gives as well opportunities of networking for alumni and for companies.

Malaysian Alumni and students' Associations

Malaysian Student Association in France (MASAF)

Malaysian Students’ Association in France was established in March 2007 by a group of Malaysian students studying in France. It was the first Malaysian students' association ever founded and aims to gather all the Malaysian students from all over France. It plays a big role in taking care of the students’ affairs. Other than that, MASAF is a medium to spread and share information among the fellow students and the high commissioner such as The Malaysian Embassy and respective sponsors.
