Choosing the right Pre-University Programme will help you enter your university of choice to study the degree course that you want. After SPMU, before entering a degree programme, students with at least 3 credits can enter a Diploma course.

In order to choose the right  Diploma course, you have to figure out what you want to study in your degree or at least have some idea. For example, if you plan to study Engineering, then your choices are Diploma in Electrical & Electronic Engineering. After completing the diploma, you may enter the degree programmes in Electrical & Electronic, Mechanical, Chemical, Civil or Mechatronic.

If interested in business courses, then you may choose either the Diploma in Accounting or Diploma in Business.
