Now that your A-Levels and STPM is over, as well as the UPU results are out, you have to choose your degree course to study. If you do not like what you have been offered for the public universities, you can always consider going into the private universities where the PTPN Loan can make it affordable.

In addition, the environment at some private universities help groom your communication and presentation skills which is valuable when you start work.

Choosing a university where the students mostly use English to communicate is important so that you can improve your English. According to a report in the Star newspaper, “A research study has confirmed that there is a correlation between English language skills and the salary gap between those who are proficient in the language and those who are not.

A study by research organisation Euromonitor International for the British Council states that the learning of the English language could increase the earning power of individuals in developing countries by approximately 25%.

A lot of students also like to wait a long while before they start their Foundation studies. We must keep in mind that “TIME = Money”. The faster you begin your studies, the faster you complete, the faster you begin your work and gain valuable work experience and this translates to money in term of your salary.

Remember, the decisions that you make now, can change your life (in this case, your salary) forever. Take time to discuss with an experienced counselor to make your decisions wisely. Choose the university with the best environment and not the university with the cheapest fees, so that your salary will high for the next 60 years of your work life
