Remember that no university is good at everything and no university is good at one area of study in Malaysia. Many students in Malaysia are confused by advertisements, popularity and rumours. They simply believe the advertisements or the claims made by their friends and relatives without checking if they are true or not. We have to make decisions based on facts and evidence.

Additionally, each university in Malaysia excels in particular areas, so you should ensure that your field of study is a strong-point of the university you choose. Students should look at the awards won by the university in the particular field. Rankings from QS World University Rankings, SETARA 2017, and other reliable rankings can serve as a guide.

Choosing a university that is best in your field of study may provide you with access to more specialised opportunities, including custom-built facilities such as an Alienware Computer Lab for Game Design students, for instance), field-specific academic opportunities (such as student exchange programmes overseas) and employment opportunities with prestigious organisations in your industry (internships with industry partners, for example). Below is a list of top universities in Malaysia in their particular field of expertise.

All students after SPM have to take a Pre-University course before entering university such as A-Levels, STPM, South Australian Matriculation, Foundation, Canadian Pre-University, etc.

It can be confusing when choosing the right Pre-University course. When choosing a Pre-U course, you should understand yourself whether you want an exam-based course or a Pre-U course that contains a mix of coursework and exams.

You should also choose the Pre-University Programme based on what you would like to study for your degree, your budget, which country, and recognition.

Below is a list of some of the best universities and colleges in Malaysia offering the Pre-University Programmes.

EduSpiral helped me to find a college that’s affordable and with a job guarantee too!

  • Is the course popular at that college or university?
  • Quality/reputation/ranking of the private college or university in Malaysia
  • Are the courses recognised and approved by the Ministry of Education Malaysia and the relevant external bodies?
  • Are the courses accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Audit (MQA)?
  • Are the degree programmes recognised or accredited by the relevant professional bodies such as the Malaysian Medical Association, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM), Malaysian Pharmacy Board, Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), etc.
  • Type of programme (local degree, UK Dual Award degree, 3+0 UK or Australian degree, 4+0 American degree, degree transfer programme, etc)
  • Do the degree programmes have exemptions from professional bodies such as ACCA, ICAEW, CIMA, Chartered Institute of Banking, CFA, etc.
  • Do they have Internship and co-op programs during the diploma or degree?
  • Check the Entry requirements (Branch campuses in Malaysia have higher entry requirements)
  • Subjects offered in the Pre-University (Pre-U) Programme. Do they help you to achieve your undergraduate academic goals. Does the subject combinations allow you to enter your university and degree of choice.
  • Do they have enough students to start a class?
  • How many students do they have studying that course at that university?
  • What is the duration of the Pre-University (Pre-U), Foundation, Diploma or Degree Programme?
  • When do you get your results so that you can meet the application deadline for the overseas university?
  • Does the college or university have a dedicated department to assist students for the overseas university and scholarship applications?
  • Does the college have regular visits from overseas universities so that you can expose yourself to the various universities and ask questions?
  • Quality of lecturers. What are their qualifications? How many years of experience in teaching?
  • Faculty contact/classes taught by full-time qualified & experienced faculty. What is the faculty to student ration?
  • Ask your friends who have studied there for their opinion. Ask your friends who are currently studying there as well.
  • How much money do I have to pay for the course and cost of living? Ask your parents. Note that you will need to have enough to pay the tuition fees as well as your cost of living. (tuition, hostel, food, transportation, etc.)
  • How much are the tuition fees? Does it include the external exam fees and other fees?
  • Financial assistance (Scholarships, PTPN Loan, EPF withdrawal, MARA Loan, etc)
  • Campus resources (labs, libraries, wifi, computer access, sports facilities, etc.)
  • How much is on-campus accommodation?
  • How much is off-campus accommodation? Note that it might be cheaper to find off campus accommodation on your own with friends. Is the accommodations near eateries, banks, entertainment, public transportation, etc.?
  • What is the student culture at the university? (English-speaking environment, ambitious, serious about studies, lifestyle or party university, etc) The language spoken mostly at the college by the students may also matter if you don’t know Mandarin or BM or English. If most of the students speak Mandarin at that university then it will not help you to improve your English. Having a good command of the English language helps you to get good jobs and promotions.
  • What are the Extra-curricular activities available? (Student organisations, clubs, sports, etc.)
  • Student support services. Does the university have a dedicated department to handle students’ welfare and emotional well-being.
  • Intake dates
  • Public vs. Private (STPM is tougher and choice of course & university is determined by the government)
  • Does the university organise job fairs regularly to expose students to the future employers so that you can get a job easily.

Talk to the Best Education Consultant in Malaysia to Help you Make the Right Choice in your Studies

My daughter was not sure if she was suited for game design so I contacted EduSpiral for advise. He listened to us and helped us to decide on the course & university.

Choosing a course to study after SPM is not a science, it is a process. 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.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working 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.
