Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia, New South Wales Chapter (MASCA NSW) is a well established non-profit, non-political, multicultural and multiracial organisation. MASCA NSW is also the peak Malaysian student representative body in the state of New South Wales. Moreover, we are recognised as the representatives of Malaysian students by the education section of the Malaysian Consulate, Education Malaysia Australia (EMA).
As the representative council, we oversee the interest and welfare of all Malaysian students within the state. Therefore, we plan various activities throughout the year to cater to the social, cultural and career development of the students. MASCA NSW also provides the platform for Malaysian students to foster friendships and promote a wholesome overseas experience. We work hand in hand with the national body and our state counterparts in ensuring that our goals are always aligned in accordance to the Founding Principles.
In addition, we work closely with our affiliates to ensure that all Malaysian students obtain the best experience. However, we do not interfere with the functions of our affiliates nor do we speak on behalf of our affiliates. Above all, MASCA NSW strives to uphold our core values, vision and mission.
The council consist of elected representatives from the various Malaysian Student Societies within the state. Elections are held once a year during the Annual General Meeting, whereby affiliated Malaysian student societies are given the mandate to elect the new representative council for the following term.
