A recent Nielsen survey based on the jobseekers in Malaysia showed that when it came to choosing a job, salary is their most important consideration. Well, this is no surprise as we do not choose a career that would not pay well after putting so much effort and money into the studies. Of course it should match our interest, skills and passion as well. Jobstreet salary guide shows the top 10 highest paying jobs in Malaysia where students can refer to when making their decision in choosing the right course to study.

Of course, the career that we choose should match our interest, skills and passion as well. When considering a course, it is important also to know how much the salary for the job would be. If you do not come from a rich family, you should not choose a course with a low job salary upon graduation.

It would make it very hard for you to save enough money to buy a car, house, support yourself and your future spouse, as well as your ageing parents. It is important to choose the right course so that you do not end up with a job that does not pay well after your studies or even worse, no job.’s study, the first job site in Southeast Asia to have introduced the list of top paying jobs for fresh graduates and experienced personnel, was based on salaries posted by employers on from Jan 1 to Aug 31 2013. Job Street came up with a list of jobs with the highest average salaries across all position levels based on the salaries posted by employers on from 1 January to 31 August 2013.

in finding out who you are and what you are good at. An experienced Education Advisor would be invaluable in assisting you to choose the right course in Malaysia or Singapore.

Students in Malaysia need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

Ask the right Education Counselors in Malaysia to help you. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor in Malaysia would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration. EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression.

It can be confusing to choose the right course after SPM  in Malaysia. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, you need to consider the following:

  • Look at your results – what are your best & worst subjects, and which subjects are your favourite?
  • What are your interests & hobbies?
  • What is your passion?
  • Job demand for the career of choice. There is no point in choosing a course out of passion and then graduate to find out that you cannot get a job in that field.
  • Salary of the career of choice
  • Discuss the budget for your studies with your parents. There is no point in choosing a course like Pharmacy or Medicine, if you cannot afford it.

  28. Hi. Can i know what would be the most demand work in malaysia since a lot of peoples say that medic have too many fresh graduate and they cant even posting anywhere. And what is the best scholarship i can have.

    1. There is no research for the most in demand job in Malaysia. Even if there is, it doesn’t mean that you are suited for that job. Scholarships are based on your results. There are hundreds of scholarships that you can apply. No idea what you mean by the best scholarship that you can have.

    1. Yes and No. If I gave you a sword but you do not have the skills to wield it, then it is useless. You can go to the best university but if you do not take advantage of the education and environment there, then it would be useless. If all things are the same, then why do people dream of buying a BMW versus a Kancil?

  29.

Am planning to study chemical engineering as your feebacks say its in demand. My physics and maths are better than chemistry. will this course be suitable for me? Thank you.

    1. Employers are interviewing you and not the university that you graduate from. A good university would have prepared you well enough for a successful career. There is no such thing as a degree from 1 university would be easier to get a job than another. Unless that university already has a bad reputation.

  31. Is ICSA have a good future and are they on demand as well? May i know the payscale of fresh graduate with a degree of B.A Corporate Administration (Hons) or who graduated with ICSA.

  32. Is it true that you must have at least B and not C for all the sciences in SPM if you wanna pursue a degree in the medicinal field ?

  33. Which one is better, Electrical Engineering or Mechatronic Engineering. And which university is better for the particular course??

  34. I’m a spm leaver 2015 . Now i obtained 4A 3A- 2B+ . I would like to do degree in medicine . But before that , is it more better to do foundation in science in private university ( my choice would be MSU ) or matriculation ? Literally i’m a bit worried whether to choose matriculation as i’m an indian and i wouldn’t get the courses that i desired as its limited for non bumiputera’s . Thus what should i do now ? Looking forward for your reply as soon as possible . Thank you .

    1. It is not a matter of which one is better, if you have the funds then you can consider private university, if not, then try for matriculation. Matriculation is also accepted for entry into medical programmes at private universities. I cannot predict the future so you will have to weigh the pros and cons to decide.

      1. Do you mean I must get a degree before I study ACCA? What about ICAEW? Does Malaysia need more accountants in the future?

      2. Which university is good at accounting? Is HELP good? Or SUNWAY? Which university will you recommend to study accounting?

    1. Can I study degree at a university then study at another university ? For example, commerce accounting degree at UTAR then continue ACCA at SUNWAY.

    1. If you are not financially viable then go for STPM however the government would choose the course and university for you. To continue your A-Levels, you need to figure out your budget for degree studies in private university. Would you go out to buy a mobile phone without a budget? So, why are you taking A-Levels without a budget for your degree which could cost from RM60,000 to RM200,000?

  67. hi. i am a spm leaver… i got 4A’S IN MATHS,HISTORY,MORAL, AND ICT, 4B in BAHASA MALAYSIA, ENGLISH, CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS. and E IN ADD MATHS .. so, i interested in computer engineering …… so, do my spm qualification enough for that career requirements???

  68. Hi, my name is Aaron. I obtained 8A(which comprises of A+, A and A-) and 1B+ in physics for 2013 SPM. and I pursued govern. matriculation for pure sciences and I obtained average grades of 1A 3A- ( 3.65 out of 4.00). now I am stranded at home while all of matriculation friends already started their first semester in university. I failed to secure place for Dentistry or ANY COURSE THAT’S RELATED TO MY FAV SCIENCE SUBJECTS( BIO,CHEM,MATHS) in public university, now i know how competetive it is with government University. In the recent UPU announcement, I was given a ‘lelong’ course which was Elec. engineering. I NEVER applied for dat since Engineering and physics are not my favourite things. I rebelled, i didnt go for the course. and now i am looking for another alternatives to pursue Dentistry and at least Bio and chem related field. but i seem to lost my way, i am worried because there will be lots of competetive candidates coming soon, and i may be forever stranded at home even with excellence results.

    1. Students taking matriculation aim to enter public universities and courses such as dentistry and medicine are extremely competitive. Most of us already know that even with 4As in STPM, some students could not enter these courses. This is the risk that you take. The other alternative is to go for private universities and pay on your own. There is no free lunch in this world.

  69. Greetings … im a level student and obtain ccd in chemistry maths and biology … which science course can i enroll with this result and hopefully the course i enroll will be demanded in future cause i didn’t want be a degree holder end up jobless… pls help me to choose the right pathway for my degree course …. im interested in healthcare management, but not sure abt the scope in malaysia. Could u pls help me so that i choose the right degree course ?? Thank you .

  72. Hi. I’m SPM 2011 leaver. I just completed my Diploma in Software Engineering last March. Can I continue my degree in Chemical Engineering? Which course is the most demanded? Software Eng or Chemical Eng? Many people told me that Chemical Eng is so tough. What should I do?

  73. Hi, im a spm candidate this year. May i know the study pathway of engineering oil/gas if i decided to go for matriculation right after Form 5? Or is there any other suggestion other than taking matriculation at the first place?

    1. You apply for matriculation and then get selected for the course. After that you apply into IPTA and hopefully you get the course that you want. The other path is to take Foundation at a private university and then continue on to the degree. It depends on your budget.

    1. No research done on nutritionists. Not really a high demand for this job in Malaysia. Salary is average. Have you seen a nutritionist yourself? Or anyone in your family? So, if no one you know has gone to see a nutritionist before, who would look for you after you graduate?

      1. Im on my way to pursue my study in Dietetic for the degree level in an IPTA. Is it true that nutritionist/dietition are not being demanded in Malaysia? Did i chose the wrong path?

  74. I have a problem choosing either to stu?dy for medicine or chemical engineering..I like to be a doctor but there are already so much of them in Malaysia ,I also like to be chemical engineer as they provide scholarships and more opportunities but the salary is less convincing than doctor..can I get your perspective on this

      1. Do I get a scholarship for studying medicine if I got straight A’s in my SPM ?I heard that there are already too much of doctors in Malaysia ..Is that true and will it affect my opportunities to succeed in this career and to get promotions ?

      2. Scholarships are awarded by various types of institutions and organisations with their own conditions. You can check with them what they are. Star Newspaper reported that there are too many doctors in Malaysia but demand is there for specialists. Opportunities depends on how smart and hardworking you are. Promotions are not automatic nor would fall from the sky.

  75. HI. my interest was on medicine. but then i had financial problem where i cant pursue my studies on medicine. i got 9a1b in my spm (2008), stpm 3.33 1a3b (2010), diploma in medical assisstant 3.80. now im working as medical assisstant for past 6mths. i would like to pursue my studies in a field where i can earn better n at d same time i can up my studies? tks.

  76. hi im grace. currently im doing foundation in science and wants to pursue in medical field.
    alot of my relatives, school consultant and parents are suggesting me to do dentistry compare to do medcine.
    my first interest was being a child specialist where i can treat the youngs more often because i like working with children, and so i decided to do degree in mbbs after my foundation.
    ive heard many negative thoughts on becoming a doctor because of the pay and working hours.
    is it too bad to take up medcine to be a doctor in 6 years time, or should i consider dentistry, im looking for a job of satisfication, good pay, flexible working hours.
    i need thoughts on doctor and dentistry. thx.

  77. These salaries are embarrassing! It’s no wonder the best and brightest leave the country in droves. Malaysia can forget about being a developed nation with such slave wage payment.

  81. Hi, can I know the pathway for software engineering? If I decided to enter matriculation, what degree courses should i take? Bachelor of engineering or information technology?? As I know, not many universities in Malaysia have this course right? I’m just scare I will be jobless or should I change to other more brighter career courses. I don’t have idea right now. thanks =)

    1. Pre-U and then into Degree. I don’t know what courses you can take should you decide to enter matriculation as there are a thousands of them and I am not God that can read your mind. Not many universities in Malaysia do not have engineering or IT? Are you sure?

  82. what about nursing? because i dont see it in the list above as well and how much would the starting pay be?

  83. I’m a SPM leaver and I plan to take up Accounting + Finance course….I would like to know the pathway to complete it, as well as the expected career and monthly salary with this degree…..Thanks in advance.
    P/s: I prefer local U as it will be much cheaper. #financial #problems

  84. What about a degree in Actuarial science? Is the pay really that bad? what kind of salary would I be getting throughout my career path? It looks like a luxurious job overseas but what about Malaysia? which occupation earns the highest amount of money? what about investment banker?

    1. I am not sure what you mean by the pay for Actuarial Science is really bad. Please write your question in detail and clearly as I cannot read your mind. I don’t know what salary you will be getting throughout your life as I am not God. The write up already states the Top Ten Highest Salary in Malaysia, so just go read it again. You can search for Kelly Services or Robert Walters Salary reports for details of the salary of an investment banker.

  85. What do you think of being an entomologist as a career? Do you know where should I start? What programme should I take?

  86. How about starting salary for fresh graduates of islamic finance, human resources and dieticians / nutritionist?

    1. Geophysicists are scientists who use physics, chemistry, geology and advanced mathematics to study the Earth and its composition, including its atmosphere, internal make-up, oceans and electrical and other fields. Basically, they work in looking for oil or petroleum deposits. Their salaries are high.

  87. can I know what is the maximum salary of geophysicists & material engineer?
    where can I study the course to become geophysics? what course is that?

  88. I completed my pg diploma in advertising and PR. Now i am going to study MBA communication and PR. So what kind of Job can i expect in corporate companies (like advertising industry) and what would be my monthly salary ?

  89. How about mass communication sir? I don’t see any in the list above? I plan to take mass communication. I am afraid it won’t lead me into a better life. Let’s talk about money. Would there be a lot of money if I take mass communication. Please reply with honesty.

      1. Sir, do human resources jobs are still on demand in Malaysia? Because I’m a graduate student in degree in HRD.
