How much do you charge?
Given that most relocation companies in Malaysia will charge upwards of 2,000RM for a 1-day 'school search' - usually with a consultant that doesn't have education or schooling expertise - we think our fees are extremely reasonable. Our help starts from as little as 300RM. Find out more about the family packages we offer.
Our relocation agent is offering to help us choose an international school - so why do we need your help?
Most expat families who rely on the advice of their relocation agent/s receive support which is time-bound (such as a 1 or 2 day 'school search'). Unfortunately, selecting the right school isn't that simple (or quick!). Many families would benefit from more advice and support - especially if they're new to Malaysia and not familiar with the schools here.
In addition, relocation agents in Malaysia are not school experts. They are not fully aware of the intricate differences between different curricula, exam boards, co-curricular opportunities or language programmes, and these are all extremely important factors influencing any schooling decision. We are. Our local knowledge, connections with schools here and expert, independent advice help to ensure you make the right school choice, saving you money in wasted application fees and ensuring you choose the school that is the 'best fit' for your family.
Can't I just do the research and find an international school on my own?
Kuala Lumpur alone now has more than 70 international schools, and the time it would take to try and research all of them would be astronomical! In addition, most information about schools available online - through Facebook groups or expat forums - is either heavily biased, outdated, or incorrect. Visiting the schools is always the best way to learn about them...but if you're not yet in Malaysia, this often isn't feasible.
At SchoolSelect Malaysia, we've done the research for you, investing hundreds of hours into personally visiting and researching all of the major international schools in Kuala Lumpur. Completely independent, we can share useful insights and objective information with you and narrow your choices down to 3-5 schools that will suit your children. Immediately, you'll have saved many, many hours of time and worry.
