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.

Study Optometry in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)
The Eyes are the window to your soul. - William Shakespeare

Eyes are one of the most important organs in our body. We walk, read, watch, send text and drive with our eyes being the compass. It is crucial for us to take good care of our eyes because William Shakespeare used to say the eyes are the window to your soul. We can see someone is sleepy, happy or tired based on their eyes. That is why many companies are producing vitamins, contact lenses and eye drops that target the health of the human eyes.

🧐 Fun Fact: You see things upside down – it is your brain which turns the image the right way up.

So, if you want to learn more about the human eyes and thinking to establish a career in this field, first we need to learn the important terminologies, so let’s go!

Ophthalmology –

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. 

Optometry –

Health profession that examines eyes and apply visual systems for eye defects or abnormalities.

Opticianry –

Professional practise of filling prescriptions for eye lenses, dispensing eyeglasses and fitting contact lenses.

Ophthalmologist –

Medical doctor that specializes in eyes treatment.

Optometrist –

Health care professionals who provide primary eye care through comprehensive eye examinations.

Optician –

Trained individuals that design, verify and provide visual systems to correct eyesight.

🧐 Fun Fact: A newborn baby will cry, but not produce any tears. Babies do not produce tears until they are around six weeks old.

Many people confuse between optician, optometrist and ophthalmologist. They may sound the same but there are big differences between these 3 professions. You can find detailed explanations on their job scope, necessary skills and education pathway for each profession below. By the end of this article, you will get to know which profession might suit you.

Who is an optician?

Opticians are people that received thorough training to help you to find your suitable vision correcting devices such as eyeglasses and contact-lenses. They are the first people that you will encounter when seeking out vision care.

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

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

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.

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.
