General entry requirements for certificate and diploma-level programmes by private colleges :


Education Level General Entry Requirement
Certificate Level SPM / GCE O Level with one credit, or its equivalent
Diploma Level SPM / GCE O Level with three credits, or its equivalent

Private colleges are the main providers of certificate and diploma level programmes. These institutions develop and award their own certificate and diploma level qualifications to students.


The general entry requirement to these programmes is SPM. The greatest strength of internally-developed diploma level programmes offered by these private institute is that they are recognized and granted with 'advance standing' entry status by many of the local private universities and foreign universities in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK, Germany, China, Taiwan and the USA, for their entry into these universities' Bachelor's degree programmes. The other plus factor is that the course is conducted in English, an international language used by many communities and countries globally.

The PHEIs' unique and long established inter-institutional collaborative arrangements with foreign partner-universities have created pathways for students to acquire foreign university degree qualifications in a much more cost-effective manner. Thousands of Diploma graduates have gone lo foreign universities to finish the final port of their Bachelor's degree programmes, although there are also many who choose lo remain in Malaysia to complete their degrees.

The curriculum and examination of this programme are set by the local private colleges, following the quality criteria set by the Ministry of Higher Education and quality assurance agency (MQA) and validated/ moderated by their foreign collaborative university partners. Students can study either full-time or part-time at the premises of the private college.


The Malaysian higher education sector has fast becoming a centre of educational excellence in Asia. The recent launch of "Strategic Plan for Higher Education: Laying the Foundation Beyond 2020" outlines the measures and strategies that will make Malaysia an international centre of educational excellence.

The higher education sector in Malaysia is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE). The education sector has always enjoyed the highest national development budget which symbolizes the commitment of the Malaysian government towards education.

These higher education institutions (HEI) offer a wide range of tertiary qualifications at an affordable cost. There are also various higher educational institutions from the UK, US, Australia, Canada, France, Germany and New Zealand which offer twinning and '3+0' degree programmes through partnerships with Malaysian colleges and universities.

Four of the 20 public universities (UM, USM, UPM and UKM) in Malaysia have been assigned research university status with additional funding for R&D and commercialization of research. The ministry plans to identify one or two Apex universities within the period of the Ninth Malaysian Plan.

The Malaysian Qualifications Agency (which is the merger of Lembaga Akreditasi Negara and the Divisions of Quality Assurance of MOHE) is the national quality agency which was recently approved by the Parliament to implement the Malaysian Qualifications Framework (w.e.f. 1-11-2007) covering both public and private higher educational institutions, accreditation of courses and other related functions. The provision of higher education is currently regulated by some of the following legislations:

1. The Education Act 1996 (Act 550)

2. The Private Higher Educational Institutions Act, 1996

3. The National Council of Higher Education Act, 1996

4. The National Accreditation Board Act, 1996 (replaced with the Malaysian Qualifications Agency Act 2007)

5. The Universities and University Colleges (Amendment) Act, 1996

6. The National Higher Education Fund Corporation Act, 1997 (Amendment 2000)

To transform Malaysia into a centre of educational excellence and to internationalize the higher education sector is a high priority for MOHE. Efforts have been made to improve the world ranking of Malaysian universities; to have 100,000 international students by 2010; to create more 'Malaysian Chairs7 in overseas universities; and to collaborate and cooperate with world-renowned universities on research and academic matters. Other initiatives include the setting up of education promotion centers overseas, opening of offshore Malaysian university branch campuses in other countries and increasing trans-national education collaboration with overseas institutions as well as aggressively promoting Malaysian higher education in many parts of the world through road-shows.

Public and private educational institutions play an equally important role in the provision of tertiary education to Malaysian youths and adults. As for the international arena, private higher educational institutions play a bigger role in attracting international students to study in Malaysia.

Tertiary education in the national education system which is directly under the jurisdiction of the MOHE comprises post-secondary education right up to higher education. Tertiary education in Malaysia also includes skill training which is outside the domain of MOHE.

Post-secondary education or pre-tertiary education is for students who have completed 11 years of education and need to obtain pre-university qualification in order to pursue education at higher educational institutions. Post-secondary education is provided by higher educational institutions under MOHE. However the main providers of post-secondary education are the post-secondary schools and matriculation colleges under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education.

Higher Education covers certificate, diploma, undergraduate as well as postgraduate levels. The providers of higher education are colleges, polytechnics and universities. Undergraduate studies consist of Bachelor's Degree levels and professional studies while postgraduate studies consist of Master's Degree and PhD levels.

Higher education at certificate and diploma levels are for students from the age of 1 7 with SPM qualifications (which is equivalent to GCE 'O') while the Bachelor's degree level is usually for students from the age of 1 9 or 20 onwards with post-secondary qualifications such as the STPM (which is equivalent to GCE A' levels) or Pre-University / University Foundation qualifications. These degree programmes normally take between 3 to 5 years. After obtaining their Bachelor's degree, students can proceed to postgraduate studies.

Higher education in the academic and professional fields is provided by:

Public-funded higher educational institutions which include public universities, polytechnics, community colleges and public colleges; and

Private-funded higher educational institutions which include private universities, private colleges and foreign university branch campuses.

MOHE is directly responsible for the operations and performance of public HEIs, whereas the private HEIs are guided by MOHE's policy guidelines and objectives.


Higher Levels Qualification Age Group Duration of Study
Certificate Level For those with secondary education qualifications such as SPM 17 and above 1 to 1.5 years
Diploma Level 2 to 3 years
Bachelor's Degree Level For those with post-secondary or pre-university qualifications such as STPM, GCE A-levels, etc. 19 and above 3 to 5 years
Master's Degree For those with a Bachelor's degree Any adult    1 to 3 years
 
PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) For those with a Master's degree Any adult    3 to 5 years


PKIBM comprise member institutions located throughout Malaysia. Between them, they offer tertiary education programmes at Matriculation/Foundation, Diploma, Bachelor and Master Levels. Many programmes are offered in collaboration with established universities, both home and foreign, who either award or accredit the respective qualifications earned.

Besides representing and promoting the common interests of member institutions, PKIBM's main purpose is to expand educational opportunities within member institutions to all students, although by circumstances the thrust is to increase the number of Bumiputera students at tertiary level.

PKIBM member institutions practice a non-discriminatory enrolment policy and accept all eligible students irrespective of their races or religions. A number of these institutions have been approved to enroll foreign students into their programmes.
