Education[edit]

An initiative by the state government to turn Negri Sembilan into an educational hub[citation needed] has also borne fruit as several foreign and local institutions of higher education have agreed to set up operations here.

Among them are Britain’s Epsom College which has acquired land in Bandar Enstek to set up its first institute outside England, Epsom College in Malaysia and the City University College of Science and Technology which signed an agreement to acquire a 40 ha parcel of land here recently.[citation needed]

The state would also benefit from the construction of the RM1.2 bil Education Ministry complex which would, among others, house the Aminuddin Baki Institute, Institut Pendidikan Guru, English Language Institute, Tunku Kurshiah College and Nilai Polytechnic as well as the International Islamic University Malaysia’s medical faculty and the International University College of Nursing.

Several institutions of higher learning that have been built in the area include Nilai University College, INTI International University and Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia.
