Australian twinning/transfer programmes give you the opportunity to study an Australian degree for up to half the cost. By spending one or two years in Malaysia and Australia, you can save a significant amount. For students who think that they’re not yet ready to move halfway across the world for their entire degree, a twinning/transfer programme can also be a good alternative.
There are three common types of twinning programmes, the ‘1+2’ programme, ‘2+1’ programme and ‘3+0’ programme. The digits indicate the number of years you will study in a region; for example, the ‘1+2’ programme means that you will spend one year in Malaysia and two years in Australia.
Students can choose between programmes that involve UK universities based on their needs.
