Visit to the Royal Museum of Malaysia
Malaysia practices the constitutional monarchy system, as well as the Westminster parliamentary system. Our monarch, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, plays an important role as the head of state, the Commander-in-Chief and many others. Recently, students under the International Relations programme paid a visit to the Royal Museum to learn about Malaysia’s royal institutions.
Apart from learning about the Islamic religion and culture through the artifacts and the architecture of the museum, our students also learned about the importance of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong in Malaysia’s national and foreign policies. As most of the students were international students, it was an eye-opening experience for them as well, as they had the opportunity to learn more about Malaysian culture.
The students enjoyed learning about the Malaysian constitutional monarchy through the out-of-classroom experience – it was definitely an interactive learning experience and it definitely complemented the textbooks well.
