How can I stay safe while studying abroad? #askeasyuni

As an international student, there are times where I feel unsafe and uncomfortable around the surrounding I live in.
Any tips for international students?

I was an international student in KL.

I think Malaysia is pretty safe, wouldn’t you agree?

One thing that worked for me and my friends - don’t look for trouble and trouble won’t find you :slight_smile:

Hi! Didnt catch your name =)

We actually have a community of international students on a separate site https://forum.easyuni.com/

Hopefully, you can connect and get better tips there!

On a side note, I studied abroad before and I was the only Southeast Asia on the whole campus. I get what you mean, but my main advise is to join common interest groups and be more vocal on our point of view. You might not get a lot of friends, but you will definitely find amazing interpersonal relationships that will make you feel right at home!

Hi
I’m Maha
You’re right!
I haven’t joined any clubs or groups in my college yet, maybe that’s why I haven’t made much friends till now.
Malaysians are one of the best people I’ve interacted with and I’ll definitely follow your advice!
Thank you so much :smile:

Yes! I agree with you :smile:
Thanks!

Hey Maha!

Also, I randomly join activities in https://www.meetup.com/ they have like scrabbles , hiking, so you can meet up locals and internationals outside uni too.

Let me know if you need help yea! Hope you have a great time here.
