UPU application: Available courses for STPM/Matriculation/Diploma Holders

Published: December 12, 2014

Filling out an application form for public university admissions can be confusing and sometimes nerve wracking. To help simplify this process, is sharing with you some quick tips, helpful information and available courses for diploma holders (see images below).

In the online application form, institutions are categorized into two – primary and secondary public universities. The first category includes four universities. These are Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM), Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).

The second category includes Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM), Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), Universiti Sultan Zainal Abidin (UniSZA), Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM), Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP), Universiti Malaysia Kelantant (UMK), Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP), Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM), Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS), Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Malaysia (UIAM) and Universiti Pertahanan Nasional Malaysia (UPNM).

Applicants can choose up to eight universities and eight courses. After selecting the institutions and courses, the form will ask students if they will also consider other institutions not in their preferred list.

1. Do I meet the minimum requirements of the course? 

Before selecting a course, make sure to check out the prerequisites of that course. This can be done by checking the university’s website which usually has information about the course and the requirements.  In case the institution’s website doesn’t hold this information, it would be best to give the institution a phone call.  Compare the subject requirements against your actual results. If your results don’t meet the subject requirements, do not select this course because you will not be considered, especially in prestigious universities.

2. What are my priority courses and institutions? 

Your top priorities should reflect in your first two to three choices.  It should be indicated orderly or else you will end up getting the course you are uninterested in. Some students assume that it would be safe to put their top choices in the third or fourth box because it increases their chances of getting it. This is just hearsay. Moreover, if you are determined to get into your preferred university, it would be wise to select similar courses of the same faculty.

3. How familiar am I with the courses being offered?
