For more information contact 01111408838
The Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) today said that all university lectures must be conducted purely online, with no face-to-face lessons allowed, until December 31, 2020.
Therefore, SPM 2019 and other students who have put on hold their studies and have been waiting to enrol at private universities and colleges hoping to attend face-to-face lectures might as well start their studies now. Top private universities in Malaysia have already started their eLearning classes since May 2020 for new students. Some of them have vast experience in conducting online learning classes which will benefit students.
SPM 2019, O-Level, A-Levels and other Pre-University graduates should not waste time any longer and begin your studies now. In addition, students who are concerned about which private university that would be best for them to pursue their studies now may WhatsApp me at 01111408838 for advise.
In a statement on May 27, 2020, MOHE said that exceptions are, however, given to five academic categories involving students.
The first category involves post-graduate students who are in research mode in public and private universities, and have permission to continue their research immediately. This is the only category of students, who are immediately allowed back on campus.
MOHE said that this relaxation, however, is only allowed to students who are required to attend physical laboratories, workshops and design studios or rely on specialised equipment to carry out their research.
Students in the other four categories will have to wait for the conditional movement control order (CMCO) to be lifted.
- Final semester/year certificate, diploma and degree students who need to conduct clinical and practical work or require special equipment (as early as July 1);
- Final semester/year students without a conducive environment or access to equipment for online classes (as early as July 1);
- Special-needs students in technical and vocational education and training (TVET) programmes in polytechnics and community colleges who require face-to-face guidance due to learning difficulties (as early as Aug 1); and,
- The new intake of certificate, diploma and degree students for the 2020/2021 academic session in all public and private universities, polytechnics, and community colleges.
