Scholarships for SPM, IGCSE, A-Level and UEC Students in Malaysia 2021

Sharing is caring :)

Cost is a major factor in the student’s decisions when choosing a university. We understand that the cost of education can have a long-term impact on one’s life, therefore it is important to sort out the budget when making the decision. Scholarships can be a good financial aid option for students to get financial support in their studies, and the best part is they don’t have to be repaid! There are different scholarships provided by different private universities and colleges in Malaysia. 

If you have thought of applying for a scholarship but have no idea where to begin or how to apply, this article will give you some ideas and also some recommendations! 

Things to consider before applying for a scholarship

1. Do your research

After you have gotten your results, it is time for you to decide on which university to attend, what course to take, and not to forget to look for scholarships to ease your parents’ financial burden. There are various types of scholarships provided by the public sectors, private companies, and universities with their own specific scholarships. It is important to do your research and find out which type of scholarship suits you the best. Because different institutions have different requirements and offer different courses. Feel free to contact us for a free consultation!

2. Be mindful of the closing date

Just like the semester start date and application closing date, scholarship application also has its own deadlines, and it varies depending on the course and the institution. It is important to always be aware of the deadlines for the scholarships you are applying for. Institutions with a high volume of applications are likely to overlook late applications. Therefore it is important to mark the date, so that you will not miss it.

3. What they are looking for

It is essential to know exactly what the scholarship provider is looking for when considering who they will select as the recipient. Some universities require interviews before choosing the right scholarship holder, therefore it is important for you to showcase yourself and articulate why you think you are the best candidate for the scholarship. 

 

Different institutions might require different qualifications. The common ones would be SPM or IGCSE. This article will also talk about the types of scholarships available for different qualifications.

As mentioned above there are different types of scholarships provided by different sectors. In this article, we are giving you a list of scholarships available mainly provided by private universities/colleges.

Interior Architecture vs Interior Design: What are the differences?

Sharing is caring :)
gray-standard-color-book-near-green-eraser-159045

When choosing a major for your future, you’ll probably look at what you love and enjoy doing the most. And apparently, you like giving a makeover to an indoor space. But then, you got into a dilemma–there are similar options for your preference, but you don’t know the difference! It’s down between Interior architecture and Interior design

Worry not! Here, we provide everything you need to know about both Interior Design and Interior Architecture.

What is Interior Architecture?

red-and-brown-floral-stair-carpet-161758

Apart from the misconception of the similarity between interior design and interior architecture, they both have the main difference. An interior architecture course is a hybrid field of study, bringing interior design and architecture together in a single discipline. It takes a good knowledge of building regulations, and an understanding of the structure of buildings, in order to make projects safe, habitable, and functional. Different from interior design, interior architecture needs to consider pretty much everything that has to do with both the building&construction and also the interior space.

What is Interior Design?

deborah-cortelazzi-gREquCUXQLI-unsplash

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, Interior design is the art or practice of planning, creating, and supervising the design and execution of architectural interiors and their furnishings. The interior design courses comprise of a more technical perspective rather than practical since an interior designer doesn’t have an architectural certification. 

The role of an interior designer doesn’t stop there. Since their job is to help create functional interior space, they need to understand how the inhabitants will use each room and also consider light, sound and other design aspects. Interior design also requires some of the tech-savviness, as far as the use of 2D and 3D software applications is concerned. Computer-aided design (CAD) is key in contemporary interior design, as well as building information modeling (BIM).

  • Interior architecture is the balancing of the art and science of designing an interior space taking into account all elements of the build.
  • Interior design is a broad-ranging profession taking into account all aspects of planning and designing interior

Scholarships for SPM, UEC, and IGCSE Students in Malaysia 2020

Sharing is caring :)

Have you ever thought about applying for a scholarship before?

If you have but still don’t know where or how to apply, fret-not since this article is perfect for you!

Things to pay attention to before applying for a scholarship

Applying a scholarship is almost the same thing as applying to a college/university. However, there are some things that you must prepare beforehand.

  •  Research is the key

To know which scholarship suits you the most, it’s best to dig into information about it before. Different institutions would usually have different awards and qualifications. You can easily find information online, through your teacher’s recommendation, ask your friend’s or sibling’s experience, or easily contact us here!

  • Aware of the deadlines

It is essential to keep in mind the deadlines for different scholarships. You can try to mark it on your calendar or set a note on your phone to keep you reminded. Institutions that receive numerous applicants would be more strict about the deadline and are most likely to overlook late applications.

  • The Qualifications

As we mentioned above, different institutions require different qualifications. One of the most common qualifications is you have to either complete SPM, UEC, or IGCSE test before submitting the scholarship. Luckily, this article will majorly inform you about which scholarships are available for those who took those tests.
