right people. You won’t ask a Doctor on how to repair your car right? Therefore, in making this life changing decision, it is important to ask experienced and knowledgeable people who are interested in your future.

I enjoy helping students find their right place at the college of choice.  I love helping students and their families navigate the college and career search process. With thousands of career options and about 500 private colleges & universities out there, it can be a confusing and stressful process.

There are so many different steps involved in applying to college, and I hope to provide clear direction and simplify the process.

  • We review the student’s high school profile, all high school transcripts, projected courses, extracurricular activities, awards, hobbies, interests and outstanding talents.
  • Then we discuss the factors that are most important to the student in identifying appropriate colleges & universities that would fit you
  • We assist to develop priorities for college selection, including courses of study, location, size, extracurricular opportunities, and many other factors
  • Ensure that the student’s interests and achievements are carefully matched with appropriate colleges and universities in Malaysia

There are basically 3 reasons in choosing a course to study in Malaysia

Lonnie Sik, Founder of EduSpiral, has more than 15 years of experience counseling thousands of students on how to choose the right course & university

1. We have to choose a course that we like. If we study something that we do not like, then we will hate our working life for the next 60 years. There must be interest as well as passion for the course of study.

2. We have to choose a career that we are actually good at. Just because you like something, doesn’t mean that you are good at it. For example, some people think that they can sing, but when they open their mouths to sing, people run away. Like the American Idol, we see that some people cannot sing but actually believe that they can.

3. We should choose a career that can give us a good salary. Unless you have rich parents or just want to work for charity, then you can ignore this. Most of us need money to survive in this world. We assist students with research on the top jobs in demand in Malaysia to best advise which one would be the best choice. Especially now for most Malaysians where the cost of living is so high, we need to get a career that can provide for us, our future family as well as to support our parents when they grow old.

Students who are not sure of what to study after SPM can contact EduSpiral Consultant Services to help guide you to choose the right course and university. There are many Pre-University or Diploma programmes that you can go for after SPM so it can be confusing for you to choose the right one.

Choosing the right university can be confusing and depends on a lot of factors like your budget, results, passion, skills and career goals.

Students interested on how to choose the best universities in Malaysia for the particular courses like the ones below can contact me for more information:

How to Choose the Best Pre-University Course in Malaysia that Fits You

Choosing the right Pre-University course after SPM or O-Levels can be confusing. There is no such thing as the “best” Pre-University or Pre-University programme. It is choosing the right Pre-U programme that fits you and your future goals.

 To choose the best Pre-University programme to study in Malaysia, you have to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you prefer exam-based or a mix of exams, assignments, course work, etc.? What is your learning style? Talk to the counselors at the private universities to find out in detail about the curriculum of the Pre-University programme to see which one best fits you.
  2. What you want to study for your degree? If you know that you want to go for Business studies, then there is no need to take the Foundation in Science. Students wanting to go for medicine, law, pharmacy or dentistry are recommended to take the A-Levels.
  3. What is your budget?A Foundation programme will cost from RM10,000 to RM25,000 while a

    degree at a private university will cost from RM50,000-RM100,000 for a business course to RM130,000 for a Pharmacy course. If this is out of your budget, then you should consider taking the STPM and going for Public University. If you do not have the finances to study at private universities, then just go for STPM. Note that STPM is extremely tough and takes 2 years of your time. You may not get the degree of your choice when entering into Public University.

  4. Do you want to continue your studies in Malaysia or overseas? If you plan to go overseas, then go for the external Pre-University programme and choose based on which country you want to go to. If you plan to continue your degree course in Malaysia, you should just take the Foundation course as it is cheaper and generally easier than the external Pre-U. To study overseas will cost from RM150,000 to RM200,000 a year at least. So, if you do not have the finances to study overseas, there is no point to go for an external Pre-University Programme. A Foundation course at a top private university in Malaysia will be sufficient.

Sometimes students choose the Pre-University programme for the wrong reasons. Students must research

carefully the type of Pre-University and its assessment style. Some students don’t perform well in the Pre-University because the assessment of the Pre-University doesn’t fit them or their command of the English language is too weak to handle the written assignments.

Intakes are also important for students who want to perform the best in the exams. Taking the March intake is generally a mistake as it is compressed in duration therefore making the student having to complete the syllabus in a short amount of time.

Just because a Pre-University is free, doesn’t mean that it would be the best or “less burden” to your parents. Taking the STPM may be free but it is a very tough exam. If you have 9As and you take the STPM, which is tougher to score, you may not be able to get 4As to apply for scholarships for degree. But if you take the Foundation, even if you have to pay a bit, but you score because it is very much easier than STPM, you will be able to apply for partial or even full scholarship for your degree.

university degree programme. Most students will enter into the Pre-U after completing SPM. There are many different Pre-University programmes available in Malaysia.

Duration & Entry Requirements of Pre-University Programmes in Malaysia

The duration of the Pre-University Programme vary from programme to programme and takes about 8 months to 24 months to complete.

General Entry Requirements for all Pre-University Programmes: SPM or ‘O’ Level or equivalent – 5 credits including English and Mathematics/Science. Note that you will need to take into account the degree requirements for certain courses for SPM subjects.

Medical & Pharmacy degree programmes will require at least 5Bs in SPM including the Science subjects while Engineering would require credits in Physics & Maths.

The number of subjects for the Pre-University Programmes in Malaysia vary from 3 to 12. When choosing the subjects, it is important to take those that would be relevant to the intended degree course. It is important to choose the right combination of subjects which would be related to your degree programme.

For example, if you take up Arts subjects, you will not be able to continue into a Biotechnology degree course.

Acceptance & Recognition of the Pre-University Programmes in Malaysia

As long as the Pre-University Programme has been accredited by MQA, it will be accepted into any private university in Malaysia and the external Pre-University programmes such as A-Levels, AUSMAT, SAM, UNSW Foundation Year, etc are accepted into universities overseas. The Internal Foundation Programmes of Private Universities in Malaysia are generally not accepted for entry by universities overseas therefore you have to take this into consideration when making your decision.

South Australia Matriculation (SAM) in Malaysia

SAM is an internationally-recognised Australian pre-university matriculation programme which is set and administered by the Senior Secondary Assessment Board of South Australia (SSABSA). SAM has been offered to students outside of Australia since 1984 and is accepted by many renowned universities in Australia, the UK, the US, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand, India, and private universities in Malaysia as an admission criterion into their undergraduate programmes.

SAM is a 10-month matriculation programme with a unique assessment pattern – 50% of the final mark is derived from the final public examination (usually in the month of October/November) while the remaining 50% is awarded internally through continuous assessment of coursework and tests. It offers students the flexibility to complete the programme over an extended period although the normal duration of study is one year.

Students taking the SAM programme must complete five subjects, including one subject from List 1 and at least one subject from List 2. In addition, students must achieve a satisfactory score (10/20 or better) in either English as Second Language Studies, or English Studies. Students can also repeat subjects without a penalty.

The usual intake for the 10-month SAM programme is in January and the minimum qualification for

Taylor's College Sri Hartamas

admission is the SPM/O-level certificate or equivalent, with at least five credits totalling not more than 30 points, including credits in English and Mathematics / Science.

The SAM programme gives students an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR, which is a percentile ranking that is utilised as a selection criterion of students for bachelor’s degree courses by universities in Australia and different parts of the world. Students will be awarded the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

The best private colleges in Malaysia for South Australian Matriculation (SAM)/SACE International Pre-University programme are Taylors College Subang Jaya, Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas and Disted College Penang.

Canadian Pre-University (CPU) or Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP) in Malaysia

Taylor's College Subang Jaya Campus

Taylor’s College Subang Jaya Campus

The Canadian Pre-University (CPU) or CIMP is the final year of the secondary school programme in Ontario, Canada. It is designed based on the course guidelines and standards of the Ministry of Education and Training of the Ontario Province.

CIMP is a 12-month course where students take a total of six subjects which include one English subject, that is, either ENG4E or ENG4U. The other subjects are Business, Computer Studies, Mathematics, Science and Social Science. Assessment comprises 70% coursework and 30% final examinations.

Student intake occurs three times a year in January, March and July. The examination sessions occur twice a year, in May and November. The minimum entry requirement is five credits in SPM, O-level or its equivalent. Upon meeting all requirements of the programme, students will graduate with the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD).

Top private colleges in Malaysia for the Canadian Pre-University are Taylor’s College Subang Jaya and Taylor’s College Sri Hartamas.

Western Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) in Malaysia

The Western Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) is the final year (Year 12) of the secondary school programme offered by the government of Western Australia to enable entry into year one Bachelor’s degree programmes of most universities around the world, such as Australia, the UK, New Zealand, the US, Canada, and private universities in Malaysia.

The entry requirement into AUSMAT is SPM, ‘O’ Levels or other equivalent qualifications, with a minimum of 5 credits in subjects of Science and Mathematics. The student intakes are in January and March. The course duration is between 8 to 10 months and students are required to take up five subjects including either English or ESL.

I would not advise students to go for the March intake as it is an intensive programme which is shorter in duration where the exam is in November. Many students with good SPM results have not done well after taking the March intake for AUSMAT.

The AUSMAT is an internationally-recognised pre-university programme administered by the Curriculum Council of Western Australia on behalf of the Western Australian government. Students are graded based on their performance throughout the year, i.e. 50% course and project work and 50% final examination.

Tertiary Entrance Examination (TEE). The student’s score (based on best four subjects) is ranked for the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for university application at undergraduate level. This arrangement not only helps to remove pressure from the single year-end assessment, but also provides opportunities for the usage of a variety of assessment techniques in determining the students’ standard of achievement.

Students are required to take five subjects including English as an Additional Language (EAL/D) or English. The remaining four subjects can be a combination of these subjects: Applicable Mathematics, Calculus, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Accounting, Information Systems, German, and others.

Top rated private universities in Malaysia for the AUSMAT pre-university course is First City University College. First City University College has a unique programme that allows for students to enter into German Universities for engineering degree programmes.

After SPM, students have a choice to continue with the GCE A-Levels programme (UK’s post-16 qualifications) offered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) which is part of the Cambridge Local Examination Syndicate (UCLES).

Many private colleges in Malaysia prepare students to sit for this examination which is a popular option among Malaysians as well as international students. It is internationally-recognised for admission into universities worldwide including professional courses.

The A-level syllabuses are divided into Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced Two (A2) levels, each contributing 50% towards the final A-Level grade. AS Level is the first half of the course and forms the foundation of A-Level. A2 Level is the second part of the syllabus and covers more difficult topics.

There are normally between 2 to 4 A-level subjects and General Paper or English is compulsory. The duration of study is usually 15 to 18 months (3 semesters). Both the ‘AS’ and ‘A2’ levels are flexible and students have the freedom to select the subjects that they are interested in, either to study a broad variety of subjects or to specialise in a particular area.

For assessment purposes, students can choose any one of the following options:

  • Take all papers of the ‘A’ levels in one sitting, usually at the end of the second year of study, or
  • Take the ‘staged’ assessment route, that is, to take the ‘AS’ level in one examination session and the final part of the assessment ‘A2’ level at a subsequent session, or
  • Take the ‘AS’ level only, either at the end of a one-year or two-year course.

Assessment

It is 100% external examination-based. Both the ‘A2’ and ‘AS’ level examination sessions occur twice a year, in June and November, with some subjects only available in June or November. Results are issued in August and February respectively.

    Examinations (CIE) in two phases: AS Level and A2 Level.

  • AS Level will account for 50% of the marks while Advanced Two (A2) Level the other 50%.
  • Students who complete the correct pattern of AS level units (usually 2 or 3 units at this level, depending on the subject) will be awarded an AS level certificate.
  • A2 refers to the final stage of A-Levels. Students who have successfully completed AS units in a subject move on to do A2, which are of a higher standard.
  • Completing the correct sequence of subjects at both AS and A2 level means students have finished a full A level in a subject.
  • University places often need a number of grades at A-Level (so both AS + A2 in a subject) but completed AS awards also attract UCAS points and are often counted towards university entrance.
  • There is no coursework in the syllabus, however, unit 3 of science subjects is a practical examination in which students are assessed based on their laboratory skills. The practical is conducted up to 2 hours under controlled conditions. The whole unit is marked by CIE.
  • To obtain an A* you require an average of 90% in your both AS and A2 units to qualify for an A*. If a student scored very highly in AS and only got grade A in A2, but overall uniform mark scale (UMS) is 90% or above, it’s an A*

a mix of coursework, assignments, quizzes and exams. The coursework could cover different assessment tasks such as projects, assignments, laboratory work, presentations, tests, and others as assigned throughout each semester. The final examination is conducted at the end of each semester. The assessments are subject to quality assurance procedures to maintain high standards and ensuring fair assessment.

Unlike the external pre-university programmes in Malaysia which focus on more general Science and Art-based subjects, the Foundation programmes for private universities provide specialisation in specific areas of study such as business, computer & IT, or engineering, and hence, cater to the specific needs of different students.

However, there are also general Foundation programmes such as Foundation in Arts and Foundation in Science offered by the private universities. Foundation in Science programmes can lead to engineering, pharmacy, medicine, applied sciences, health sciences and other arts related degree programmes. The Foundation in Arts programme can lead to accounting, business, computing, architecture, design, and other arts related courses. After completing the Foundation in Science students have the choice to choose sciences or arts related degree programmes.

The Foundation programmes at HELP University and UCSI University are recognised by some top universities in Australia, UK and New Zealand for entry into their degree programmes. Asia Pacific University is the only private university in Malaysia where all students will study the same subjects for the first semester and then when they figure out which course suits them, they choose the stream for their second and final semester.

Most diplomas can be transferred to another college or university into the Year 2 of the relevant programme. If you have taken the Diploma in Accounting, it is highly likely that you can enter into Year 2 of the degree in Accounting or Accounting & Finance. For the Diploma in Business Administration, you can enter into Year 2 of the degree in Business Administration depending on the exemptions.

However, if you go from the Diploma in Business Administration into the Degree in Accounting, then you may not get the optimum amount of exemptions because the subjects in your diploma are not similar with the degree course of the university that you want to transfer to.

To transfer your credits into another university, you will need to submit the following documents for exemptions:

  1. Transcripts from your current college or university
  2. Course outline for all the subjects taken
  3. Letter of completion or Diploma Certificate

After SPM, students will enter into the American Degree Programme for 2 years before transferring their credits to a university of their choice in the USA for the final 2 years.

Students will need at least 5 credits in SPM to enter the ADP. There is no “Foundation or Pre-U” in the USA education system. Students after high school will enter directly into 4 years of degree studies. Students complete (on average) two years in the ADP and the remaining two years at universities in the United States.

Students will take about 40 subjects in total during their four years of studies, where 20 subjects (60 credit hours) are completed at ADP and the rest are completed in the U.S. Since the total duration to obtain a U.S. degree is four years, students spend about two years in Malaysia and the other two years in the USA.

SPM (5 credits) – Year 1 (Freshman) – Year 2 (Sophomore) – transfer to USA into Year 3 (Junior) – Year 4 (Senior)

In the first 2 years, students will take general subjects before going into more specific subjects related to their degree of choice when they go to the USA.

The American undergraduate degree provides an education that emphasizes problem-solving, critical thinking and decision-making skills. American education provides a flexible, holistic and well-rounded approach to education. It produces graduates with strong critical and analytical thinking skills with the ability to put knowledge into action.

    • To study medicine it is better to go for A-Levels.

My father told me to take diploma in maritime transportation instead, first i thought it was worth the try but i think its not the course for me. I would want to continue in engineering but is it a good choice ? Cause i’ve heard stories that engineers is a little too mainstream nowadays and if an individual grads from engineering course it would be hard for him or her to get a job. I don’t know if i’m actually good at engineering studies, but to be an engineer or a doctor was always my goal. I can’t be a doctor since i don’t have the qualification. I’m in a dilemma should i just take a leap of faith and try again to be an engineer or should i just take something else and start over ?

    • Your results are not that great to get a full scholarship. First you have to figure out your budget and then you will know where to study. If finance is a problem then just go Form 6. You don’t need to worry what the local uni offers because you have 2 years to decide what to study.

So, if one has to take STPM, then will this person has to think about future? I’m a guy which is getting confused whether in which field am I suitable in. If foundation courses are much better than STPM, so in which institute should I study in? Glad, to have the PTPTN loan for national students to further their studies.

    • Going into private university also means choosing a university where the students communicate well in English so that we can improve ourselves for a better future. I don’t understand what you mean by a person taking the STPM doesn’t need to think about the future. IF you are confused, then talk to a counselor and take a career test. First of all, do you have the budget to study Foundation and Degree in private universities? If you don’t have the budget, then the answer is simple, take Form 6.

    • Many good students have not done well in STPM because it is a very difficult course. If you already know you want to study IT, why take the A-Levels? There are many factors we have to take into consideration before recommending a course or university so we need to get to know our students first and then advise them.

      Software Engineering Vs. Computer Science
      Both computer science and software engineering curricula generally require a
      foundation in programming fundamentals and basic computer science theory. They differ in their focus beyond these core elements. Computer science programs tend to keep the core small and then expect students to choose among more advanced courses (such as systems, networking, database, artificial intelligence, theory, etc.).

      In contrast, Software Engineering programs generally expect students to focus on a range of topics that are essential to the Software Engineering agenda (problem modeling and analysis, software design, software verification and validation, software quality, software process, software management, etc.).

      While both Computer Science and Software Engineering programs typically require
      students to experience team project activity, Software Engineering programs usually requires more team involvement as effective team processes are essential to effective Software Engineering practices.
      In addition, a key requirement specified by the Software Engineering curriculum guidelines is that Software Engineering students should learn how to build software that is genuinely useful and usable by the customer and satisfies all the requirements defined for it.

      Software Engineering is developing, designing and maintaining software systems that are reliable and efficiently carries out the tasks smoothly. The software system is created in collaboration with the needs and requirements of the clients. The software designed must be user friendly for the staff or customers to use. Software Engineering is an integration of computer science, computer programming, mathematics and engineering practice. Software engineers apply the principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to the design, development, testing, and evaluation of the software and systems that make computers work.

      Software Engineers need to ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date as technology changes rapidly. Computer software can be developed for any function for control and automation, manufacturing, business, and management systems. Restaurants use custom-made software to ensure their accounts are kept properly and orders for food can be made efficiently so that wastage is managed.

      Computer Science is the study of principles, applications, and technologies of computing and computers. It involves the study of data and data structures and the algorithms to process these structures; of principles of computer architecture-both hardware and software; of problem-solving and design methodologies; of computer-related topics such as numerical analysis, operations research, and artificial intelligence; and of language design, structure, and translation technique. Computer Science provides a foundation of knowledge for students with career objectives in a wide range of computing and computer-related professions.

    • If you are interested in business then just go for Arts Stream. If you have less than 5As in SPM, I would recommend that you just for the Diploma in Business. By the time you complete the STPM, you would have already completed the Diploma. The diploma will be something that you like to study and that you will do well at. The STPM is very tough and many good students also don’t do well in it. If you don’t do well in your STPM, you would have wasted 2 years. You may add me in Facebook at eduspiral@gmail.com to discuss this further. Cheers!

    • You have to make decisions based on facts and evidence. If business is the easiest and for below average students, then there must be a lot of stupid people in the world. Everything in the world and in Malaysia are run by businesses and business graduates. If you say got future as a doctor, the reports say that there are too many doctors in Malaysia.

    I am not sure what i’m gonna pursue my studies in. My parents want me to do something in the medical line locally. But I’m not that sure if I can take up Medicine/Pharmacy/Dentistry well =3= I’m also having a second-thought of becoming a teacher. What do you think i should do?? Any other courses that you recommend me to do?

  140. Hi, I got 9A’s in SPM and I’m interested in science. I plan to take foundation in science follow up with degree courses such as medicine. But, the fees for medicine is too expensive. And, salary for doctors in Malaysia isn’t that high. So, I’m thinking should I continue in what I’m interested or change to other courses ?

    • USA does not require a Pre-U. After SPM, you will go directly into Year 1 of the degree for 4 years. You can go for the American Degree Program for 2 years in KDU University College and then transfer over to any of the 400 partner universities in the USA of your choice. Maths is important for architecture.

  145. Hello, I’m waiting for my spm results and with my trial results, I have obtained A+ in Sejarah, A in Bahasa Melayu and English and B in Moral and Maths. C in phy bio and chem and a D for Add maths. I wanted to do interior architecture and interior design but both of my parents are fully against it so I end up with two choices that were suggested by my dad which are Law and Psychology. For psychology, do I have to do a diploma programme or foundation? And which university offers a great psychology programme? If I’m certain to do Psychology, I’d want to be in an industrial and organisational psychology. I’d appreciate a quick reply 🙂 Thanks.

  146. Hi.
    So I did not do my A levels well. I do not even have 2 principal passes to enter uni directly. I only have 1.5 credit AS and 1 credit A level.
    I was thinking of doing a pre-uni program/foundation in arts.
    The pre-uni requirements is 5 credits which I am short of in SPM.
    Can my A level credits and my SPM results make up for the 5 credits needed?

    Thanks.

    • Advertising is a wide area with many job opportunities in the many advertising agencies in Malaysia. You can also work as a brand manager for FMCG, or in marketing & promotions. People who succeed in this line with a high income have a good command of the English language, are creative and possess excellent communication skills. Choose a university where the students communicate in English and you will be able to improve.

    • If you really want to work in the psychology field, you have to go for the Masters degree. In terms of job prospects for Psychologists, it is alright. You can find work in the 500 private colleges and universities in Malaysia, or international schools, or you can teach. You can also work in Human Resources, banks, marketing, public relations, and more. You don’t necessarily need to work as a psychologist.

    • It is normal for Science stream students to switch to arts courses. Finance is the study of how money is managed and the actual process of acquiring needed funds. Economics is the study of the production and consumption of goods and the transfer of wealth to produce and obtain those goods. There are many banks, investment companies, insurance firms and more for you to find work at. You won’t be just sitting behind a counter as there are many different types of positions in a bank.

      Business admin is general and you will study a bit about everything. You can work mostly in HR, Marketing, Sales, admin, etc. However, I would recommend Finance and Investment as a better choice. When you learn how money moves, you will know how to make more money and develop new ideas.

      For a good business course, you can email me at info@eduspiral.com.my with your full name and number and I will send you their brochures. CHeers.

    • With 3 credits, you can only take the Diploma course first and then only go to UK. You will need at least 5 credits to join the American Degree Programme. You will only take the IELTS before you go overseas so you have 2 years to prepare if you take the Diploma. Please email me at info@eduspiral.com.my with your full name and number for more details.
