Psychology is both an applied and academic field that studies the human mind and behaviour. Research in psychology seeks to understand and explain how we think, act and feel. Most people know that a large part of work in psychology is devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of mental health issues. They apply their knowledge to help people function better. They provide mental health care in hospitals, clinics, schools, and in private consultation. Their work covers a wide range of activities, and their clients include children, adults, couples, families and community organisation.

With at least 5 credits in SPM or O-Levels students can go for the Foundation in Arts at the best private universities in Malaysia.

Studying Psychology at Top Private Universities in Malaysia

Below are a list of the best private colleges and universities in Malaysia in their various fields, in my opinion.

The Different Areas of Psychology Studies at the Best Universities in Malaysia

Other than mental health, psychology can be applied to a variety of issues that impact health and daily life including performance enhancement, self-help, ergonomics, motivation, productivity, and much more

However, note that in order to offer professional counseling you will need at least a Masters degree in Malaysia.

Psychologists frequently are innovators, evolving new approaches from established knowledge to meet the changing needs of people, organizations and societies. They develop theories and test them through their research. As this research yields new information, these findings become part of the body of knowledge that practitioners call on in their work with clients and patients, as well as with organizations and communities.

Psychology is a tremendously varied field. Psychologists conduct both basic and applied research, serve as

HELP University’s (HU) new campus at Subang 2

consultants to communities and organizations, diagnose and treat people, and teach future psychologists and those who will pursue other disciplines. Psychologists may gather information about their clients by administrating personality, performance, aptitude and intelligence tests, and through controlled laboratory experiments. Many psychologists work as health care providers. They assess behavioral and mental function and well-being, study how human beings relate to each other and also to machines, and work to improve these relationships.

Many psychologists work independently and also team up with other professionals — for example, with

other scientists, physicians, lawyers, school personnel, computer experts, engineers, policymakers and managers — to contribute to every area of society. Thus, we find them in laboratories, hospitals, courtrooms, schools and universities, community health centers, prisons and corporate offices.

Psychologists traditionally study both normal and abnormal functioning and treat individuals with mental and emotional problems. They also concentrate on behaviors that affect the mental and emotional health and mental functioning of healthy human beings. For example, psychologists work with patients to help them change behaviors that are having negative effects on their physical health. They work with business executives, performers and athletes to reduce stress and improve performance.

Many employers are interested in the skills that psychology majors bring to collecting, analyzing and

interpreting data and their experience with statistics and experimental design.

Opportunities for people with advanced degrees in psychology are expanding in number as well as in scope. The move toward preventing illness rather than merely diagnosing and treating it requires people to learn how to make healthy behavior a routine part of living.

Indeed, many of the problems facing society today are problems of behavior — for example, chronic health conditions or disease, drug addiction, poor personal relationships, violence at home and in the street, and the harm we do to our environment. Psychologists contribute solutions to problems through careful collection of data, analysis of data and development of intervention strategies — in other words, by applying scientific principles, the hallmark of psychology.

There are many specialisations available, of which the following are examples.

Clinical Psychologists are concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of psychological

disorders, such as assisting mentally or emotionally disturbed patients adjust to life, helping people to deal with personal crisis, or helping those with physical stress ( chronic pain, alcohol and drug addiction, multiple sclerosis. ). Clinical Psychology is focused on the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental disorders. It is also considered the largest employment area within psychology. They work mostly in psychiatric clinics and hospitals, rehabilitation and community health centres, research centres, and private clinics.

Clinical psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional and behavioral disorders. These range from short-term crises, such as difficulties resulting from adolescent conflicts, to more severe, chronic conditions, such as schizophrenia. Some clinical psychologists treat specific problems exclusively, such as phobias or clinical depression. Others focus on specific populations — for instance, youths; familes or couples; ethnic minority groups; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals; or older people. They also consult with physicians on physical problems that have underlying psychological causes.

Cognitive Psychologists deal with memory, thinking and perception. It is the study of human thought processes and cognitions. Cognitive psychologists study topics such as attention, memory, perception, decision-making, problem-

solving, and language acquisition. Cognitive psychologists are interested in questions such as how the mind represents reality, how people learn and how people understand and produce language.

Cognitive psychologists also study reasoning, judgment and decision making. Cognitive and perceptual psychologists frequently collaborate with behavioral neuroscientists to understand the biological bases of perception or cognition or with researchers in other areas of psychology to better understand the cognitive biases in the thinking of people with depression, for example.

Community Psychologists
Community psychologists work to strengthen the abilities of communities, settings, organizations and broader social systems to meet people’s needs. They help people access resources and collaborate with others to improve their lives and communities. Instead of helping individuals cope with negative circumstances (e.g., trauma, poverty), community psychologists help empower people to change those circumstances, prevent problems and develop stronger communities.

Examples of community psychology interventions include improving support for hurricane victims, partnering with neighborhoods to prevent crime, collaborating with schools to prevent bullying and helping change policies to improve health outcomes. Community psychologists blend research and practice, partnering with diverse citizens to plan and implement community changes, advance social justice and use research to inform and evaluate this work.

Counseling Psychologists
Counseling psychologists help people recognize their strengths and resources to cope with everyday problems and serious adversity. They do counseling/psychotherapy, teaching and scientific research with individuals of all ages, families and organizations (e.g., schools, hospitals, businesses). Counseling psychologists help people understand and take action on career and work problems, they pay attention to how problems and people differ across the lifespan, and they have great respect for the influence of differences among people (such as race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, disability status) on psychological well-being. They believe that behavior is affected by many things, including qualities of the individual (e.g., psychological, physical or spiritual factors) and factors in the person’s environment (e.g., family, society and cultural groups).

Development Psychologists study the development process that takes place throughout the lifespan. They will look  at human growth and development. Theories often focus on the development of cognitive abilities, morality, social functioning, identity, and other life areas.

Educational Psychologists work in schools, colleges or universites with students, teachers and parents to resolve students’ learning and behavioural problems. They are engaged in the delivery of comprehensive psychological services to children, adolescents and families in schools and other applied settings.

They assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate. Most schools employ school counselors full time. Counselors hired by private universities and colleges help students to adjust to university life, study problems, advise on proper study habits, personal problems and maybe take care of the clubs and students’ activities.

Experimental or Research Psychologist investigate the sensory, cognitive, emotional and social aspects of human

behaviour, and the behavioural processes of animals such as rats, and monkeys, usually in university research or private research centres.

Experimental psychologists are interested in a wide range of psychological phenomena, including cognitive processes, comparative psychology (cross-species comparisons), and learning and conditioning. They study both human and nonhuman animals with respect to their abilities to detect what is happening in a particular environment and to acquire and maintain responses to what is happening.

Experimental psychologists work with the empirical method (collecting data) and the manipulation of variables within the laboratory as a way of understanding certain phenomena and advancing scientific knowledge. In addition to working in academic settings, experimental psychologists work in places as diverse as manufacturing settings, zoos and engineering firms.

Forensic Psychology is an applied field focused on using psychological research and principles in the legal and criminal justice system. They can, for example, help a judge decide which parent should have custody of a child or evaluate a defendant’s mental competence to stand trial. Forensic psychologists also conduct research on jury behavior or eyewitness testimony. Some forensic psychologists are trained in both psychology and the law.

Health psychologists

Health psychologists specialize in how biological, psychological and social factors affect health and illness. They study how patients handle illness, why some people don’t follow medical advice and the most effective ways to control pain or change poor health habits. They also develop health care strategies that foster emotional and physical well-being.

Health psychologists team up with other health care professionals in independent practice and in hospitals to provide patients with complete health care. They educate health care professionals about psychological problems that arise from the pain and stress of illness and about symptoms that may seem to be physical in origin but actually have psychological causes. They also investigate issues that affect a large segment of society and develop and implement programs to deal with these problems. Examples include teenage pregnancy, substance abuse, risky sexual behaviors, smoking, lack of exercise and poor diet.

Industrial Psychologists apply their knowledge to improve productivity and the quality of work life. It is a field that uses psychological research to enhance work performance, select employee, improve product design, and enhance usability. Many serve as human resources specialists, helping organizations with staffing, training and employee development. They may provide employers with testing and other valid selection procedures in their hiring and promotion processes. 

Some psychologists design programs for recruiting, selecting, placing and training employees. They evaluate, monitor

and improve performance. They help make changes in the way the organization is set up. Others help design the actual tasks, tools and environments people must deal with when doing their jobs. These specialists can also help design the products that organizations create and conduct research related to product design. For example, they play a big role in making computer hardware and software more user friendly.

“Industrial-organizational psychologists can help employers understand their organizations better and sort out restructuring so as to help boost worker productivity and retention rates in a wide range of businesses. Industrial-organizational psychologists will help companies deal with issues such as workplace diversity and anti-discrimination policies. Companies also will use psychologists’ expertise in survey design, analysis, and research to develop tools for marketing evaluation and statistical analysis.” The need for psychologists’ abilities in applied research settings and activities such as survey and market research will be particularly acute in the next decade. Others work as management consultants in such areas as strategic planning, quality management and coping with organizational change.

Rehabilitation psychologists

Rehabilitation psychologists work with stroke and accident victims, people with mental retardation and those with developmental disabilities caused by such conditions as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism. They help clients adapt to their situation and improve their lives, and they frequently work with other health care professionals. They deal with issues of personal adjustment, interpersonal relations, the work world and pain management.
Rehabilitation psychologists are also involved in public health programs to prevent disabilities, including those caused by violence and substance abuse. And they testify in court as expert witnesses about the causes and effects of a disability and a person’s rehabilitation needs.

Social psychologists

Social psychologists study how a person’s mental life and behavior are shaped by interactions with other people. They are interested in all aspects of interpersonal relationships, including both individual and group influences, and seek ways to improve such interactions. For example, their research helps us understand how people form attitudes toward others

and, when these are harmful — as in the case of prejudice — provides insight into ways to change them.
Social psychologists are found in a variety of settings, from academic institutions (where they teach and conduct research), to advertising agencies (where they study consumer attitudes and preferences), to businesses and government agencies (where they help with a variety of problems in organization and management).

Sports Psychologists provide psychological assistance to sports competitors to enhance their performance and enjoyment. Sport psychologists help athletes refine their focus on competition goals, become more motivated, and learn to deal with the anxiety and fear of failure that often accompany competition.

Jia Ping, Mass Communication at KDU University College

The best private universities and colleges in Malaysia have excellent facilities, years of experience running the programme, strong student support services, internships and experienced lecturers.

They are also accredited by MQA and approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Accreditation by the various professional bodies such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia, Pharmacy Board, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, etc also indicates the standard achieved.

The best private university in Malaysia will focus on quality, have award winners for the particular courses, years of experience offering the particular course, highly experienced lecturers, a good study environment (not a party university), internships, good mix of international & local students, extra-curricular activities and good facilities. The SETARA ranking is a guide for students to assess the quality of a private university in Malaysia.

When choosing a university and college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you.

Talk to the lecturers and find out from the counselors there about the courses and check if the courses have been accredited by MQA and other external bodies like the Pharmacy Board, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, Board of Engineers Malaysia , Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia or Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia.

The environment should be one where students speak mostly in English so that you can improve your

English and communication skills. If you are weak in English and choose a cheap university where the students speak mainly in Mandarin, it will be difficult for you to improve your English.

Star newspaper has reported that graduates with good English earn 25% higher salary and get faster promotion. The Ministry of Education reported that there were more than 70,000 public university jobless graduates and one of the main reasons was poor command of the English language.

Would you rather suffer for 4 years and get a high salary for 60 years of your work life or an easy 4 years and low salary for 60 years? The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever. Remember the best university doesn’t mean it is the best university for you. The best university is one that fits your career goals, your personality and can push you to a higher level of success.

As a science, psychology applies the scientific method to study psychological phenomena .Psychology studies human behaviour by observing, measuring and testing, then arriving at conclusions that are based in sound scientific methodology. A goal of psychology is not only to understand the processes that underly human thinking and behaviour, but apply that understanding to solve practical problems.

Professions in Malaysia which do not require Postgraduate Qualifications in Psychology

  • Organisational management
    • Large multinational companies like General Electric (GE), Shell, PETRONAS, Citibank and HSBC have for years been recruiting psychology graduates for their organizations. Psychology graduates working in these companies typically enhance organizational effectiveness by applying psychological principles to issues like human motivation, performances management, work satisfaction, stress management, conflict resolution, talent management and talent requisition.
  • Mentoring, Training and Development
    • Most of the more than 200 training companies in the Klang Valley specialize in soft-skill corporate development programmes, in areas like stress management, emotional intelligence (EQ), customer-service, change management, motivation and performance, conflict management and team building – in essence, to help people become more effective in their work.
    • Psychology graduates are well equipped for this particular industry with their expertise in human thought, feelings and behavior. This is a potentially lucrative field as some trainers can earn between RM1,500 to RM5,000 a day for training sessions.
    • To be successful in this industry, psychology graduates will need to develop their communication and facilitation skills. Top consulting firms like Accenture, Hewitt and McKinsey & Company are aggressively recruiting psychology graduates in Malaysia.
  • Research and recruitment
    • With their expertise in conducting systematic research, psychology graduates also have the option of working in research companies and recruitment firms.
    • In market research companies, psychology graduates research different aspects of people’s attitudes or behavior which are of interest to companies trying to sell products. Researchers’ responsibilities include designing surveys, identifying samples, organizing data collection, analyzing and subsequently presenting the data in an easily understandable way.
    • In recruitment firms (which are sometimes known as headhunting companies), your clients will often be companies wanting to fill positions in their workforce. Your job may include running personality assessment tests to see if job applicants fit the company culture and interviewing shortlisted candidates.
  • Social and Community Work
    • Psychology graduates who want to make a difference in the community need not look far for jobs. In the klang valley alone, there are more than 180 associations which work with various communities, including people with physical or mental disabilities, victims of abuse, recovering drug addicts, impoverished communities and children who have been separated from their parents. Psychology graduates will play the role of helpers as well as advocates and organizers.
  • Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations (PR)
    • With their knowledge of how people think, psychology graduates are able to develop creative and effective marketing and advertising programmes. For the past 20 years, psychology graduates have been employed by leading advertising companies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy & Mather.
    • Many psychology graduates also work in public relations, which include political operatives. In many parts of the world, psychologists work as speechwriters and campaign managers for politicians.

Professions in Malaysia that require Psychology Postgraduate Qualifications

  • Clinical Psychology
    • Clinical psychology is a specialist field which involves helping people with mental health issues, which include depression, autism and post-dramatic stress disorder. Clinical psychologists work either in private practice, or in private or public hospitals. Many clinicians also develop community education programmes to help spread awareness of mental health issues.
    • The World Health Organizations (WHO) estimates that Malaysia requires more than 340 clinical psychologists, but currently has less than 70. There is a huge shortage of clinical psychologists in this country and as a result most of them are incredibly overworked, with waiting lists that span months.
  • Organisational Psychology
    • Organisational psychologists work as consultants with organizations to improve work quality and productivity as well as worker satisfaction. They are licensed to design and administer psychological assessments in the workplace.
  • School and Educational Psychology
    • School psychologists work within the education system to improve learning and make education effective and interesting for students. They also help students with learning disabilities like dyslexia.
  • Health Psychology
    • Health psychologists are interested in improving people’s psychological interventions in areas like stress management, overcoming addictions and cultivating healthy eating habits. They often work for the government, though some work in consulting and private practice.
  • Academic Work
    • The academic world may interest those who enjoy teaching and research and is a relatively stable profession which affords travel opportunities and new experiences.

Challenges in the field of Psychology in Malaysia

  • Psychology requires a lot of reading and analysis, and considerable research. To succeed in this area, students will need to be committed wholeheartedly which is why passion and interest are essential.
  • Working with people is also challenging as they are often mysterious, unpredictable and sometimes can stretch your patience and determination. It’s thus important to acquire good people skills and develop a genuine empathy for others. It’s difficult to understand and help people unless you learn to care about them.

Some Advice

Psychology is a wide field, with many areas to explore. Explore as many areas as possible during your undergraduate degree by spending time discussing issues with lecturers, attending seminars, conferences and workshops, and joining clubs and societies to help you discover more.

As Asia develops, there will be a need for more psychologists in many different fields. In the end, people are what matter most in this world. If you’re interested in understanding and empowering people, this is certainly the field for you.

  4. The number of corporate companies employing psychologists is increasing.

Psychology Careers in Malaysia

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes- in simpler terms, understanding how people think, feel and behave.

Psychology is a broad field of study, encompassing areas like biopsychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology, organizational psychology, health psychology, abnormal psychology, educational psychology, sports psychology, human personality and more. This field is ideal for those interested in understanding, working with and helping people.

Professions in Malaysia which do not require Postgraduate Qualifications in Psychology

  • Organisational management
    • Large multinational companies like General Electric (GE), Shell, PETRONAS, Citibank and HSBC have for years been recruiting psychology graduates for their organizations. Psychology graduates working in these companies typically enhance organizational effectiveness by applying psychological principles to issues like human motivation, performances management, work satisfaction, stress management, conflict resolution, talent management and talent requisition.
  • Mentoring, Training and Development
    • Most of the more than 200 training companies in the Klang Valley specialize in soft-skill corporate development programmes, in areas like stress management, emotional intelligence (EQ), customer-service, change management, motivation and performance, conflict management and team building – in essence, to help people become more effective in their work.
    • Psychology graduates are well equipped for this particular industry with their expertise in human thought, feelings and behavior. This is a potentially lucrative field as some trainers can earn between RM1,500 to RM5,000 a day for training sessions.
    • To be successful in this industry, psychology graduates will need to develop their communication and facilitation skills. Top consulting firms like Accenture, Hewitt and McKinsey & Company are aggressively recruiting psychology graduates in Malaysia.
  • Research and recruitment
    • With their expertise in conducting systematic research, psychology graduates also have the option of working in research companies and recruitment firms.
    • In market research companies, psychology graduates research different aspects of people’s attitudes or behavior which are of interest to companies trying to sell products. Researchers’ responsibilities include designing surveys, identifying samples, organizing data collection, analyzing and subsequently presenting the data in an easily understandable way.
    • In recruitment firms (which are sometimes known as headhunting companies), your clients will often be companies wanting to fill positions in their workforce. Your job may include running personality assessment tests to see if job applicants fit the company culture and interviewing shortlisted candidates.
  • Social and Community Work
    • Psychology graduates who want to make a difference in the community need not look far for jobs. In the klang valley alone, there are more than 180 associations which work with various communities, including people with physical or mental disabilities, victims of abuse, recovering drug addicts, impoverished communities and children who have been separated from their parents. Psychology graduates will play the role of helpers as well as advocates and organizers.
  • Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations (PR)
    • With their knowledge of how people think, psychology graduates are able to develop creative and effective marketing and advertising programmes. For the past 20 years, psychology graduates have been employed by leading advertising companies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy & Mather.
    • Many psychology graduates also work in public relations, which include political operatives. In many parts of the world, psychologists work as speechwriters and campaign managers for politicians.

Professions in Malaysia that require Psychology Postgraduate Qualifications

  • Clinical Psychology
    • Clinical psychology is a specialist field which involves helping people with mental health issues, which include depression, autism and post-dramatic stress disorder. Clinical psychologists work either in private practice, or in private or public hospitals. Many clinicians also develop community education programmes to help spread awareness of mental health issues.
    • The World Health Organizations (WHO) estimates that Malaysia requires more than 340 clinical psychologists, but currently has less than 70. There is a huge shortage of clinical psychologists in this country and as a result most of them are incredibly overworked, with waiting lists that span months.
  • Organisational Psychology
    • Organisational psychologists work as consultants with organizations to improve work quality and productivity as well as worker satisfaction. They are licensed to design and administer psychological assessments in the workplace.
  • School and Educational Psychology
    • School psychologists work within the education system to improve learning and make education effective and interesting for students. They also help students with learning disabilities like dyslexia.
  • Health Psychology
    • Health psychologists are interested in improving people’s psychological interventions in areas like stress management, overcoming addictions and cultivating healthy eating habits. They often work for the government, though some work in consulting and private practice.
  • Academic Work
    • The academic world may interest those who enjoy teaching and research and is a relatively stable profession which affords travel opportunities and new experiences.

Challenges in the field of Psychology in Malaysia

  • Psychology requires a lot of reading and analysis, and considerable research. To succeed in this area, students will need to be committed wholeheartedly which is why passion and interest are essential.
  • Working with people is also challenging as they are often mysterious, unpredictable and sometimes can stretch your patience and determination. It’s thus important to acquire good people skills and develop a genuine empathy for others. It’s difficult to understand and help people unless you learn to care about them.

Some Advice

Psychology is a wide field, with many areas to explore. Explore as many areas as possible during your undergraduate degree by spending time discussing issues with lecturers, attending seminars, conferences and workshops, and joining clubs and societies to help you discover more.

As Asia develops, there will be a need for more psychologists in many different fields. In the end, people are what matter most in this world. If you’re interested in understanding and empowering people, this is certainly the field for you.

Psychology is a broad field of study, encompassing areas like biopsychology, developmental psychology, social psychology, cognitive psychology, organizational psychology, health psychology, abnormal psychology, educational psychology, sports psychology, human personality and more. This field is ideal for those interested in understanding, working with and helping people.

Professions in Malaysia which do not require Postgraduate Qualifications in Psychology

  • Organisational management
    • Large multinational companies like General Electric (GE), Shell, PETRONAS, Citibank and HSBC have for years been recruiting psychology graduates for their organizations. Psychology graduates working in these companies typically enhance organizational effectiveness by applying psychological principles to issues like human motivation, performances management, work satisfaction, stress management, conflict resolution, talent management and talent requisition.
  • Mentoring, Training and Development
    • Most of the more than 200 training companies in the Klang Valley specialize in soft-skill corporate development programmes, in areas like stress management, emotional intelligence (EQ), customer-service, change management, motivation and performance, conflict management and team building – in essence, to help people become more effective in their work.
    • Psychology graduates are well equipped for this particular industry with their expertise in human thought, feelings and behavior. This is a potentially lucrative field as some trainers can earn between RM1,500 to RM5,000 a day for training sessions.
    • To be successful in this industry, psychology graduates will need to develop their communication and facilitation skills. Top consulting firms like Accenture, Hewitt and McKinsey & Company are aggressively recruiting psychology graduates in Malaysia.
  • Research and recruitment
    • With their expertise in conducting systematic research, psychology graduates also have the option of working in research companies and recruitment firms.
    • In market research companies, psychology graduates research different aspects of people’s attitudes or behavior which are of interest to companies trying to sell products. Researchers’ responsibilities include designing surveys, identifying samples, organizing data collection, analyzing and subsequently presenting the data in an easily understandable way.
    • In recruitment firms (which are sometimes known as headhunting companies), your clients will often be companies wanting to fill positions in their workforce. Your job may include running personality assessment tests to see if job applicants fit the company culture and interviewing shortlisted candidates.
  • Social and Community Work
    • Psychology graduates who want to make a difference in the community need not look far for jobs. In the klang valley alone, there are more than 180 associations which work with various communities, including people with physical or mental disabilities, victims of abuse, recovering drug addicts, impoverished communities and children who have been separated from their parents. Psychology graduates will play the role of helpers as well as advocates and organizers.
  • Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations (PR)
    • With their knowledge of how people think, psychology graduates are able to develop creative and effective marketing and advertising programmes. For the past 20 years, psychology graduates have been employed by leading advertising companies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy & Mather.
    • Many psychology graduates also work in public relations, which include political operatives. In many parts of the world, psychologists work as speechwriters and campaign managers for politicians.

Professions in Malaysia that require Psychology Postgraduate Qualifications

  • Clinical Psychology
    • Clinical psychology is a specialist field which involves helping people with mental health issues, which include depression, autism and post-dramatic stress disorder. Clinical psychologists work either in private practice, or in private or public hospitals. Many clinicians also develop community education programmes to help spread awareness of mental health issues.
    • The World Health Organizations (WHO) estimates that Malaysia requires more than 340 clinical psychologists, but currently has less than 70. There is a huge shortage of clinical psychologists in this country and as a result most of them are incredibly overworked, with waiting lists that span months.
  • Organisational Psychology
    • Organisational psychologists work as consultants with organizations to improve work quality and productivity as well as worker satisfaction. They are licensed to design and administer psychological assessments in the workplace.
  • School and Educational Psychology
    • School psychologists work within the education system to improve learning and make education effective and interesting for students. They also help students with learning disabilities like dyslexia.
  • Health Psychology
    • Health psychologists are interested in improving people’s psychological interventions in areas like stress management, overcoming addictions and cultivating healthy eating habits. They often work for the government, though some work in consulting and private practice.
  • Academic Work
    • The academic world may interest those who enjoy teaching and research and is a relatively stable profession which affords travel opportunities and new experiences.

Challenges in the field of Psychology in Malaysia

  • Psychology requires a lot of reading and analysis, and considerable research. To succeed in this area, students will need to be committed wholeheartedly which is why passion and interest are essential.
  • Working with people is also challenging as they are often mysterious, unpredictable and sometimes can stretch your patience and determination. It’s thus important to acquire good people skills and develop a genuine empathy for others. It’s difficult to understand and help people unless you learn to care about them.

Some Advice

Psychology is a wide field, with many areas to explore. Explore as many areas as possible during your undergraduate degree by spending time discussing issues with lecturers, attending seminars, conferences and workshops, and joining clubs and societies to help you discover more.

As Asia develops, there will be a need for more psychologists in many different fields. In the end, people are what matter most in this world. If you’re interested in understanding and empowering people, this is certainly the field for you.

    • In recruitment firms (which are sometimes known as headhunting companies), your clients will often be companies wanting to fill positions in their workforce. Your job may include running personality assessment tests to see if job applicants fit the company culture and interviewing shortlisted candidates.
  • Social and Community Work
    • Psychology graduates who want to make a difference in the community need not look far for jobs. In the klang valley alone, there are more than 180 associations which work with various communities, including people with physical or mental disabilities, victims of abuse, recovering drug addicts, impoverished communities and children who have been separated from their parents. Psychology graduates will play the role of helpers as well as advocates and organizers.
  • Marketing, Advertising and Public Relations (PR)
    • With their knowledge of how people think, psychology graduates are able to develop creative and effective marketing and advertising programmes. For the past 20 years, psychology graduates have been employed by leading advertising companies like Saatchi & Saatchi, Leo Burnett and Ogilvy & Mather.
    • Many psychology graduates also work in public relations, which include political operatives. In many parts of the world, psychologists work as speechwriters and campaign managers for politicians.

Professions in Malaysia that require Psychology Postgraduate Qualifications

  • Clinical Psychology
    • Clinical psychology is a specialist field which involves helping people with mental health issues, which include depression, autism and post-dramatic stress disorder. Clinical psychologists work either in private practice, or in private or public hospitals. Many clinicians also develop community education programmes to help spread awareness of mental health issues.
    • The World Health Organizations (WHO) estimates that Malaysia requires more than 340 clinical psychologists, but currently has less than 70. There is a huge shortage of clinical psychologists in this country and as a result most of them are incredibly overworked, with waiting lists that span months.
  • Organisational Psychology
    • Organisational psychologists work as consultants with organizations to improve work quality and productivity as well as worker satisfaction. They are licensed to design and administer psychological assessments in the workplace.
  • School and Educational Psychology
    • School psychologists work within the education system to improve learning and make education effective and interesting for students. They also help students with learning disabilities like dyslexia.
  • Health Psychology
    • Health psychologists are interested in improving people’s psychological interventions in areas like stress management, overcoming addictions and cultivating healthy eating habits. They often work for the government, though some work in consulting and private practice.
  • Academic Work
    • The academic world may interest those who enjoy teaching and research and is a relatively stable profession which affords travel opportunities and new experiences.

Challenges in the field of Psychology in Malaysia

  • Psychology requires a lot of reading and analysis, and considerable research. To succeed in this area, students will need to be committed wholeheartedly which is why passion and interest are essential.
  • Working with people is also challenging as they are often mysterious, unpredictable and sometimes can stretch your patience and determination. It’s thus important to acquire good people skills and develop a genuine empathy for others. It’s difficult to understand and help people unless you learn to care about them.

Some Advice

Psychology is a wide field, with many areas to explore. Explore as many areas as possible during your undergraduate degree by spending time discussing issues with lecturers, attending seminars, conferences and workshops, and joining clubs and societies to help you discover more.

As Asia develops, there will be a need for more psychologists in many different fields. In the end, people are what matter most in this world. If you’re interested in understanding and empowering people, this is certainly the field for you.
