Introducing MASCA

Welcome to the 1st Edition of the MASCA Newsletter,

As most universities in Australia are approaching the end of the first semester, MASCA would like to congratulate all students for getting this far! It has been a different semester for everybody, with e-learning as the main form of education throughout the semester, which is no easy feat in this trying time. We are glad to see that students have been adapting well to the changes! Whether you have adapted yourselves to the new normal or you still haven’t been able to wake up for that 9 a.m. Zoom lecture, MASCA is proud of you! In this edition of the newsletter, we would like to introduce MASCA.


MASCA stands for Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia. We are a representative council of Malaysian students in Australia. MASCA is composed of MASCA National and the MASCA State/Territory Chapters. Under the patronage of the Education Department of the Consulate of Malaysia in Australia (EMA), MASCA is an independent, non-partisan, not-for-profit organisation run by students, for students.


MASCA is a one-stop centre for Malaysian affairs in Australia, we facilitate the interaction and unification of various Malaysian student bodies in Australia. We aspire to promote and uphold the Malaysian spirit amongst the student population. As a proud Malaysian organisation, MASCA proudly upholds multiculturalism, unity, and tolerance. This is reflected in MASCA’s multicultural demographic. Ultimately, fostering a united Malaysian community is embodied in our agenda along with forging close ties with the Australian community for the welfare of Malaysian students in Australia.
