What to Study After SPM? After-SPM Guide

Sharing is caring :)

The journey up until SPM itself is daunting, but what comes after can be often even more confusing and difficult for many students. In order to get entry into a Bachelor’s Degree, students are required to have a Year 12 qualification. 

Since SPM is only equivalent to a Year 10/11 qualification, you are required to complete a pre-university program or Year 12 program, to fill the gap between SPM and getting a degree.

However, choosing the right program from the various different pre-university programs can be exhaustive without the much needed research.

We are here to help you get started with your research, with a detailed list of the most common pre-university programs offered in Malaysia that you could consider as a route to your Bachelor’s Degree. 

1. Foundation Courses/ Programs

A foundation program is a study course, originated from the UK, designed to fill the gap between SPM and the level needed to gain entry into a bachelor’s degree program at a university. Foundation programs typically take one year to complete. It is a quicker pathway to a Bachelor’s Degree than other pre-university programs such as A-levels and Diploma. 

The most important thing to keep in mind is that, in a foundation program you will be studying subjects that are specific to your interested course. Hence, a foundation program might be the right choice for you if you have an idea about the career you want to pursue. 

It can be quite difficult to switch between courses if you opt for a more specialized foundation course such as IT, Business or Architecture.  However, for students who want to keep their career choices more open, there are also broad foundation courses such as science or arts that usually take upto one year to complete. 

The assessment style of foundation programs are a mix of quizzes, assignments, and continual assessments on top of final exams. 

One of the setbacks of a foundation program is that other colleges may not recognize the foundation program if you decide to continue your degree overseas. So having a clear plan of where you want to study and which course you prefer is crucial.

2. A-Levels

Advanced Level Qualifications (A-Levels) is a pre-university program that follows the UK education system. These are subject based qualifications that can lead you to either university, training or work. A-levels can be completed within three or more years or even two years.  A-levels are completely assessed based on a series of examinations. 

A-levels are now accepted globally as an eligible qualification to enter numerous universities, within and outside of the UK. In A-levels, students usually study three to four subjects of their choice. In Malaysia there are two represented examination boards, University of Cambridge International Examinations and Edexcel Limited. Even though the two examination boards have different assessment styles, both are recognized equally worldwide. 

A-level is often a good choice for students who want to keep their study options open. When choosing A-Level subjects consider subjects you are likely to be good at, since having an ability in it will make the experience easier. Also, if you have a specific career you want to pursue you might want to look into the subjects needed for the course of your interest in order to meet the entry requirements. If you are planning to go into university after A-Levels, keep in mind that universities require specific A-levels or a combination of A-levels (usually 3 subjects).

In short, you should consider A-levels if you want more flexible study options, if you’re up for a challenging syllabus, and you are interested in continuing your studies overseas.

3. Australian Matriculation

Australian Matriculation, is a globally recognized pre-university program offered in different institutions around the world. There are two types of Australian Matriculation in Malaysia, South Australian Matriculation (SAM) or SACE International and AUSMAT, also known as, Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE). 

Australian Matriculation is recognized in almost all universities of Australia, and most universities in Malaysia and other parts of the world as well. All three of these programs are graded by a balanced combination of coursework and external examination. However, they do vary in terms of structure, syllabus, and coursework to examination grading percentage. Students are usually required to take 5 subjects of their choice for successful completion of the program.

Upon completion, students are awarded an Australian Tertiary Education (ATAR) rank, based on the students’ results. ATAR score is one of the entry requirements to be eligible for application into certain universities. 

Australian Matriculation is highly recommended for students looking to continue their studies in an overseas university or a private university in Malaysia.

4. American Degree Program (ADTP/ADP)

American Degree Transfer Program is a program that allows students to pursue the first part of their degree in a private university in Malaysia, and the final part in an American University. Students typically either spend the first one or two years in Malaysia and the other two in America. 

Another program, much like ADTP, is American Degree Program (ADP),  where  you complete your degree locally without transferring to a university in the United States. With this program you have the same academic experience of an American university without having to deal with the expensive tuition fees. Upon completion of the program you will be awarded the Degree Certificate of an American intuition. 

ADTP and ADP are usually 3- 4 year programs that you can directly enter after SPM. They are typically 70% coursework and 30% final exam and provide you with a flexible and broad based curriculum.

American Degree Programs are all about flexibility as it allows you the option to change your major during the first two years, giving you extra flexibility in choosing majors. In addition to this, you are able to take fewer or more subjects per semester to complete your degree at your own pace. You also get a broad range of subjects to choose from. 

If you prefer a program with fewer exams and more exciting assignments, projects and presentations American Degree Programs are the right choice for you. This is also a good option for students who want to study abroad, but have difficulty affording their whole course of study as an international student.  

With more flexibility, however comes more responsibility. Hence, before choosing your subjects it is very important for you to do your research. 

You can contact Excel Education for more assistance in choosing your ADTP course.

5. Canadian Pre-University Program

As the name suggests, Canadian Pre-University Program is a Canadian based pre-university program offered to students who have finished O-levels  as a pathway to their bachelor’s degree. It shares the same level of qualification as STPM. 

The Canadian pre-university programs offered in Malaysian private university and colleges, International Canadian Pre-U (ICPU) and Canadian International Matriculation Programme (CIMP), all lead to Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD), which is recognized by universities in Canada, United States and selected universities in the UK and other countries as well. 

Your course will usually be 12-15 months long and you will be taking 5 subjects and an English course which will be divided across semesters. 

Similar to ADP, Canadadian Pre-U also comprises 70% coursework and 30% external examinations. Therefore, it is a good choice for students looking for a more interactive form of learning, with your assessment and grading spread out throughout the course of study. 

You are also required to take up a minimum 10 hours of community service in order to complete this program. Hence, it is also a good choice for students who want extra curricular activities to be a bigger part of your study and prepare for your studies overseas. 

For more information regarding Canadian Pre-University Programs, contact Excel Education.

6. STPM

STPM is a qualification equal to GCE A-levels in the UK. It is a Year 12 for students who wish to experience school life a bit longer after completing SPM. STPM can usually be completed within 18 months and takes a holistic approach to learning with an emphasis on critical thinking, communication skills and leadership. 

STPM is widely accepted across the most reputable universities in the world. In STPM, students are offered to choose from a range of 23 subjects, including a compulsory General Paper. This program consists of two types of assessment, 20-40% school based assessment and a 60-80% final examination. 

Please note that before entering a public university students are also required to take Malaysian University English Test (MUET). 

STPM has always been a great option for ambitious students who are cost-conscious but want to enter into competitive degrees at university.  It is also a good option for students who want to keep their study options open. 

For more information regarding STPM, contact Excel Education..

7. Malaysian Matriculation

Malaysian Matriculation, also known as Malaysian Matriculation or Matrikulasi is a pre-university program that serves to fill the gap between SPM and Bachelor’s Degree programs at local universities. Malaysian Matriculation can be completed within 1-2 years. Even though Malaysian Matriculation is widely recognized within local universities, it is also accepted in some universities in New Zealand and the UK. 

The study choices are however very limited, where you get to choose from only two streams of study, namely, Science and Accounting. 

This is a very cost-effective option for students planning to enter local public universities. For Successful completion of this program you are required to complete 2-4 semesters. Local Matriculation offers students to choose from 4 streams, namely, Science, Accounting, Professional Accounting and Engineering. In each stream a wide variety of subjects are offered, running from medicine to IT.  The grading is based on 10-20% classroom assignments, 10% mid semester exams, and 70-80% final examinations. 

This is a preferred route to tertiary education among Malaysians as it is extremely cost-effective to pursue a degree with a local university. In addition to local universities, it is also accepted in some foreign universities in countries such as Australia, New Zealand and the UK. This pre-university program is also a great option for students who want to keep their study options open.

For more information regarding Local Matriculation, contact Excel Education

8. Diploma

Diploma is one level below an undergraduate degree and can be considered equivalent to the first year of a degree. In a diploma program, there will be high emphasis on industry specific skills to prepare you for the working world. After the completion of a diploma you can either get entry into the second year of a related degree or join the workforce early. 

Diploma usually takes 24-36 months for successful completion. The courses offered in a Diploma are very specific and it is very important for you to have decided on what you want to do in the future. A diploma comprises a combination of coursework and final examinations. Most universities also require students to undertake an internship in the final year, for you to get first hand industry experience. 

Diploma is a preferred option among students who have a set plan for their future, and want to enter the workforce early. It is also a preferred pathway for students who are looking for a route with lower entry requirements. Malaysian students will also be able to apply for a PTPN loan with a Diploma, unlike most other pre-university programs such as A-level, Australian Matriculation, and most Foundation courses.

SPM之后的升学之路

Sharing is caring :)

你是否还在为SPM之后的去向而烦恼?身边的人有的选择继续升学也有人选择直接踏入社会工作。那如果你是前者,且还在为将来的升学之路做打算,这篇文章整理了一些SPM之后的几个去向和一些适合的大学供你参考。

大部分的国内外大学的入学门槛都需要至少12年的教育。根据马来西亚的教学制度,从小学一年级直到中五毕业,大部分的学生们都只受了11年的教育。而这就是为什么SPM毕业的考生们都需要先修一门大学预科课程才能升上大学。

大学预科课程分为很多种,其中包括国内外不同的课程。而其课程时间长短都不一样,收获的文凭也会影响接下来升上大学的路。以下的这张图简单的说明了不同课程的分类。

总的来说,结束SPM后想要继续升学的学生们基本有三个选项:

1.      大学预科课程 (Pre-University):大学预科课程分为很多种,政府机构和私立机构都有不同的课程选项。政府学院的两大课程包括:中六 (STPM) 和公立大学预科班 (Matrikulasi)。而私立学院的课程则包含大学基础课程 (Foundation Programme),A水平 (A-Level),南澳大学预科课程 (SACE International),澳洲大学预科课程 (AUSMAT) 和加拿大大学先修班 (CIMP/CPU)。每项课程的长度和学费都不一样,学生们可以根据自己的预算和情况选择一个适合自己的课程

2.     文凭课程 (Diploma):这项课程适用于那些已经有明确头绪知道自己想要选择什么科系的学生。文凭课程的教学会让学生们有更加深入的了解。在完成了文凭课程以后,大部分学生们都可以直接升上该课学士学位第二年。此外,完成了文凭课程后,学生将获得一张文凭,这项课程也适合那些不想继续学士学位,而想在完成课程后直接步入社会的同学。

3.     证书课程 (Certificate):部分学生可能想再继续升学,但却不够 SPM Credit 直接升入其他大学预科课程或文凭课程。对于SPM 成绩不太理想,而想继续升学的学生,证书课程会是一个好的选项。这是因为此课程的入学门槛较低,而在完成了证书课程后学生们可以接着升上文凭课程的第一年,进而继续学士学位。

I thank life for happening, thank every twist and turn, I believe that there is a reason for every single thing, a reason for every worry and concern.

After SPM: What’s Next?

Sharing is caring :)

One of your biggest exams, Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia, also known as SPM is done! There are so many things to plan now and might become overwhelming & confusing. 2 essential things that need to be considered thoroughly are the course and the college/university. Here, we provide a handy list of things that hopefully can simplify your options and can find the one that suits you the best!

Finding the right course

There are several aspects that might influence your course choice. Different people may be influenced by different things. So let’s get deeper into it one by one.

1. Know your hobby(ies)

Spent some time to observe what you enjoy to do the most in your spare time. You might find what area you’re interested in better. For instance, if you like to read books related to entrepreneurship and some man’s successful stories, you might be inspired to follow their steps by pursuing a degree in business first. 

Another example, if you like to watch law-related tv-shows/movies like Suits, Law and Order, or binge-watching Legally Blonde, you might be interested in pursuing a law degree On the other if you’re more excited with tv-shows related to medicine such as Grey’s Anatomy, The Good Doctor, or Chicago Med, you might probably have an interest into the medical world.

2. Career opportunities

If you are the type of person that likes to plan everything ahead and clearly, you might want to dig in more research on what courses lead to a more rewarding career in the future. In 2020, the Australian Government released the official data for top employing industries which include Healthcare and social assistance, Professional and Scientific Services, and Education and Training.

3. Find something you’re good at

Different than hobbies, which is something that you like to do, other things that can be your consideration is by looking at something that you’re actually good at. Other than being realistic, it can be easier for you to follow the things that you already know the basics beforehand. For example, you’re good at math and dealing with money, maybe accounting can be your course options. Another example, you’re good at listening to other’s problems and can give a really helpful solution, a degree in psychology might be perfect for you.

Finding the right program & university

After you are down with several options of study areas, you are now entitled to choose the perfect programs out of plenty of programs available out there. Knowing the one that suits you the best might be a challenge. That’s why we’re here to give you a rough idea of some of the most popular pre-university programs in Malaysia.

Top Nursing Universities in Australia 2020

Top reasons to study Nursing in Australia

If you are someone who enjoys making a difference in people’s lives for the better, consider making nursing as a career! Nursing is a highly respected and trusted profession, filled with many opportunities and rewards. The following are a few reasons and benefits of why choosing Nursing as a career might be the most suitable option for you.

  • Growing Demand for Nurses 

Nursing is a profession showcasing continuous growth and demand. Healthcare workers have always been welcomed into Australia. As of recent, nurses are particularly in high demand. This is due to the population growth of Australia which has more than doubled over the last 50 years and is expected to continue year on year. This has led to a shortage of skills in the healthcare sector. As a result, the federal government has increased spending on public hospitals, thereby, expanding their health offering as well as building a number of new hospitals. 

Therefore, the upcoming hospitals require qualified and skilled staff members which is now driving up the demand for nurses in the country. With the increasing demand, higher wages, benefits and better work environment are to be expected. 

  • Nursing is a Diverse Profession

The profession is dynamic and diverse with room to grow professionally. Most people think nurses are constricted to working only in hospitals. However, in addition to hospital nursing there is a variety of practice settings available for nurses : Ambulatory care centers, Public health agencies, independent practice, long-term care facilities and more. Upon receiving a nursing qualification, you can continue to progress professionally in the field. You can start off as an Assistant in Nursing and after you gain enough experience, you could become a Registered nurse, nurse practitioner and there onward aim to become a Nurse Manager. Based on the level of education and qualification obtained, you can pursue a change in the work environment, focus areas, or location. 

  • Flexible Working Schedules in Nursing

Nurses have the option of choosing the type of schedule that fits with their life, without losing out on opportunities, job security and pay. Since Nursing is a 24 hour service with rotating shifts, you can choose whether to work at night, day or over the weekends. This is one of the greatest perks enjoyed by nurses around the world. This is extremely appealing to those who aim to pursue higher education in the field, such as advanced degrees or any other additional certification. This will enable nurses to have a flexible scheduling system.

  • Nursing is a Well Respected Profession

Nurses are essential to the health care system as they improve the lives of patients every day. Nursing is seen to be a profession that is ethical, honest and trustworthy as it is required in the field of healthcare. They are the key link between Doctors and patient. It is true that doctors overlook and manage the overall healthcare plan, however, nurses are also there to implement it. Nurses interact with patients the most, therefore, they are in the best position to inform others about the patient’s safety and needs.

I am a freelance commercial content writer and student of SEGI College studying Bachelor of Business with a major in Marketing. I love to travel and enjoy ‘Me’ time with a cup of coffee in a quiet cafe.
