Choosing the Best College or University in Malaysia for the Certificate or Vocational Course

There are a few quality colleges and universities offering the Certificate courses.

Because you did not do well for your SPM, you will need a college that will give you the necessary support with excellent facilities to make sure that you do well. If you simply choose any college, you may not succeed again because the college did not give you the necessary support. For example, if you want to master Kung Fu, you do not simply ask anyone to teach you, you ask a Master or Sifu. He will give you good training so that you will succeed.

The environment is important as well. If you are playful and distracted by friends, then you should not go to a party university where most of your friends are. Go for a university or college with a more serious study environment and get your life back on track.

I believe that in life, God has given each person a “bag”. in this “bag”, some people have “hands-on skills”, some have “studying skills” while others have “service skills”.

We just need to find out what’s in your bag, so that you can do well in life and earn a living.
