Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services For more information contact 01111408838

Most great things begin with a plan. Your future career and studies should be no different. A plan will give you something to work towards. It’ll also help you make the most of the opportunities that come your way.  It can be confusing to choose the right course after SPM or UEC. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you, look at your results, interests and budget. If you are not sure what to study, do ask a trained counselor and always make decisions based on evidence and facts. The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever.

After having counseled thousands of students for more than 20 years, I have come up with 9 tips that will help students after SPM or UEC to help you choose the right course to study in Malaysia that would best fit you.

I have students telling me that they have taken personality tests but were not accurate. We must remember that these tests are not 100% accurate and needs to be used together with a counselor. Furthermore, the tests are designed by westerners who choose their courses based on interests while as Malaysians, we not only have to choose based on interests but have to take into account which course can give us a career that is stable and can make money.

You can contact us for a free career test to help you understand yourself better so that you are able to make the right decision.

  • The internet, newspapers, television and people around you are the best sources of information.
  • Check online about the courses you are interested in and find out about the career prospects and the other info.
  • Find facts and evidence to support the career and job prospects.
  • Starting salaries and how much you can earn eventually.
  • Go to education fairs and Open Days to see the campuses and collect the brochures.

4. Ask the right people about what to study at top universities in Malaysia

I was confused about what to study and talking to EduSpiral helped me a lot. Coming from Sarawak made it difficult for me to know which university was best in Malaysia & EduSpiral provided good insights. Eric Lu, Business at KDU University College

  • Speak to professionals in your field of interest and find out what it is like working in that job.
  • People who have completed university courses can give you an insight from a student’s perspective – they can tell you the pros and cons.
  • Listen to people who are experienced in the industry or know what they are talking about. Not just simply listen to Aunties or Friends who don’t know what they are talking about.
  • Talk to your school counselor or an experienced career guidance counselor. This is important as you would not ask a Doctor on how to repair your car so you must ask the right person to help you.
  • Ask your parents and friends what type of personality you are and what could fit you however note that some parents may not be objective and want you to choose the course they want for you.

5. Cost of studying a diploma or degree in Malaysia

  • Talk to your parents and find out what is their budget. There is no point going around asking about studies overseas and then find out that you can only afford to study in Malaysia.
  • You need to know the budget for your studies in order to choose the right university that fits you. There is no point to choose a university and then find out that you cannot afford the fees
  • Affordability is another aspect you need to consider while deciding on your course, as well as the additional costs that occur, such as text books, field trips etc.
  • Financial aid available are basically scholarships and the PTPN Loan.

6. Career opportunities in Malaysia for the Course that You are Interested in  

  • Look at the career prospects of the course before selecting one. Consider various factors such as income, job security, stress, responsibility and other benefits while researching a profession.
  • Look at statistics, evidence and facts. Not just listen to your auntie say that she thinks a particular career is excellent or a university counselor say that the course is good based on their experience.

7. Look at the subjects offered in the Course at the University that you are Interested in

My mom contacted EduSpiral to ask his advise with regard to my results & where to study. He met us at the university to guide us and even obtained a partial scholarship for me. Ignatius, Mechatronic Engineering at Asia Pacific University

  • Read through the course outline of the course(s) you want to apply for. See if the subjects interests you.
  • Have a look at the subjects you must undertake and the types of learning, assignments and examination tasks involved.

8. Quality of the Private University in Malaysia

  • Compare course outlines and academic facilities between universities to make sure you make the right choice for your educational needs and preferences.
  • If possible, visit the university and their Open Days to get a feeling of what the campus is like.
  • If you choose a university with extremely low fees, then don’t be surprised at the low quality of education there. If you pay for a Kancil, you will get Kancil power. However, it doesn’t mean that you should pay so much until you are just paying for the lake only. Pay what is value for money.
  • Choose a university that promotes the use of the English language.Research by Star newspaper has shown that professionals with good command of the English language has a 25% higher salary and chances of promotion. Some graduates wonder why they can’t find a job because they cannot communicate in simple English when they chose a university that has lower fees but with a

    Mandarin-speaking environment.

  • An overseas education is not better but it will help expose you to a different culture and expand your thinking abilities.Although rankings are a guide but in Malaysia, some universities are ranked high but are low in terms of quality.
  • The SETARA 2013 & 2011 Ranking system by MQA can be used as a guide in choosing the best universities in Malaysia to study at

9. Choose the Best Course to Study in Malaysia that fits you

  • Choosing a course or career is not a science, it is a process in finding out who you are and what you are good at. Some people find out faster while others take more time.
  • A personality or career test is not magic or science that will show you what your future is. They are just a guide.
  • You can always work in other fields after you graduate as long as it is not a technical field. Engineers and Doctors have switched to Finance or Marketing careers.

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.

Choosing a university is important as it will help to shape your mind, character and help you to develop the necessary skills for a successful career. Therefore, not all private universities are the same. You should not choose a university because it is the cheapest, easiest and nearest. It should be based on which university that best fits your needs.

Many students in Malaysia also make the common mistake in choosing a university because their friends are going there. I even had one student tell me that his choice of university depends on where his girlfriend is going! This is one of the most important decisions that may change your life forever hence it should not be taken lightly.

Common Factors in Choosing the Best Private University in Malaysia to Study

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

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 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.

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.

  1. Hi,
    Im here to seek advise.
    I went to UK and further my study in architecture for 3 years. I just graduated, but i do not think this career path suits me and the result was just a pass so i would like to know is there any way for me to apply to local university for other major?
    I took A-level 2011-2012 (Maths, Psychology & Physic).

  3. Hi there, so here’s my results…

    BM: A-
    BI: A+
    MM: A
    SEJ: A-
    GEO: B
    PI: B
    CHEM: C
    PHY: C+
    ADD MATHS: D

    Obviously, i’m not too keen to continue my studies in the field of science. My passion has always been writing. (Novels, scripts for plays, etc). I had my plan to go on and study for mass communications and/or psychology (What my dad wants from me). But til now, i’m still kinda lost on what i really need to do, Some of my friends and family says that I should continue to study in foundations, and some say I should continue for STPM…could you help me in anyway?
    Thank You In Advance (^_^)

    • Like I said, to enter into the USA degree, you need to go for the American Degree Program, 2 years in Malaysia and then 2 years in the USA. AUSMAT is difficult to transfer into USA universities as it is different system. Scholarships available for studies in Malaysia, for USA it will depend.

    • To go to the USA, you should go for the American Degree Program (ADP). KDU University College is the pioneer of this course with over 400 partner universities for you to transfer to in the USA. You can get some scholarship at KDU with your results. For scholarships in the USA, you may get some partial scholarships but full scholarship is generally not possible. If you are interested in KDU, please email me at info@eduspiral.com.my with your full name and mobile number.

You can email me at info@eduspiral.com.my with your full name and number to discuss which one suits you. To succeed in business, other than knowledge and skills in business, you need to have good communication skills and command of the English language. The university that you choose should have an English-speaking environment.

    • You need 3 credits for Diploma and 5 credits for Foundation or A-Levels. Your question is too general, you should let me know your budget and your results and then we shall see which university fits you. If you ask like that, then I would say Oxford or Cambridge but then it depends on whether you can enter or not. What’s your results?
