Hi Nusrah,

Among all the courses you mentioned, Strategic Management would be most suitable for you. This is because the other courses are suited towards those who are more reserved or are not really active. You can also enrol for those programmes and we're sure you will do well, but you might not enjoy the long hours spent facing the screen or calculating the whole day. Do note that you will be doing this for at least a few years after you graduate or perhaps, your entire career so it's important to choose wisely. However, your character is also suited for the advertising field where they would require some calculation, lots of drawing and creativity. If you are not offered advertising at UPU, you can opt for private institutions as well.

Hope our guidance has helped you pick the right course and we wish you the best of luck! :)

Hi Umeswaran, Unfortunately you will need the offer letter from the university if you are applying a scholarship (External Scholarship or Internal Scholarship). If you have applied for UPU, you will still need the offer letter from the public university to apply for scholarship.

Why are you so sure that you can get even one scholarships? *Plan B = PTPTN

Hi Tze Yin,

This depends on the university you intend to apply in because their fees vary accordingly. Generally, a diploma in business could range between RM15,000 to RM30,000. Peninsula College, SEGi, IUKL and INTEC are some institutions that offer this programme. Certain universities also offer a Foundation in Business or Commerce that will take only 1 year to complete, such as AIMST and Curtin. If you'd like to enrol into one, please click on this link https://afterschool.my/international-education-college/diploma-in-business-management-dbm fill up your details on the right side of the page and we will contact you shortly to help in the application process.

Hope to speak to you soon :)

Hello Sanjaay,

The approximate fees for a piloting course is RM 240,000 - 300,000. Although it is very expensive, the salary for a pilot is also high after you have succeeded in becoming one.

However, please do also take note that this course is not a degree, and is only a certification. Competition is also high between thousands of candidates who are aspiring to become pilots.

Hi Fahmi,

Yes, employers do recognise CAT but you'll most likely get a lower position and salary than those who obtained an ACCA qualification. It's best to obtain ACCA actually. For your info, INTEC is one of the most popular and best institutions to study CAT and ACCA in.

Hope this helps.

Hi Hasmaan,

First of all, many students are also facing the same issue and it's normal to be confused at this stage. So allow us to guide you to make a decision on this.

1) The subjects you like are the perfect combination for a degree in Chemical Engineering. May we add that engineering courses will always be high in demand so an engineering course is one of the safest courses you can choose to be sure you obtain a job in the future. Electrical Engineering would be good too. View the best and worst careers in Malaysia here: https://afterschool.my/career-builder/best-worst-careers-malaysia-2017

2) The field of aviation branches out to many paths such as aviation management, piloting, aircraft maintenance and aerospace engineering. If you want to work in the aviation field and engineering as well, aerospace engineering would be suitable for you.

3) We don't advice you to opt for piloting because once you get your license, you can only be a Pilot, nothing else. It is not a diploma or degree where you can apply for others jobs if let's say you did not receive a job offer to be a Pilot. The fees are also rather expensive (RM300,000). But if you do get a job, you will get a very high salary. We are not discouraging you from doing what you like but we're just laying out the risks you'll be taking if you study Piloting.

Hope this helps.

Hi Athirah,

You should apply with your Diploma qualification because with that, you can enter degree straight away. If you use SPM results, you will need to repeat a pre-university course again. You can apply for UPU now but do note that you will receive a notification that you've failed because you haven't gotten your Diploma results yet. Once you do get it, you can upload it during the appeal phase and they will reconsider you. Here's a user manual on how to apply through UPU: https://afterschool.my/upu-guides/upu-2018-19-official-user-manuals-how-to-apply

Hope this helps.

Hi Zafri,

Civil Engineering is a good choice as engineering careers will always be high in demand. You're on the right track to a stable career. The study of Civil Engineering in Malaysia involves the design, construction and management of a project such as highways, tunnels, dams and major buildings. You might want to check out the course description and entry requirements for a course in Civil Engineering here: https://afterschool.my/civil-engineering

Civil Engineering is only available in degree level. To get there, you will need to complete a pre-university programme first. Your options are STPM, A-Levels, Matriculation, Foundation, IB, ADTP, etc. A pre-u programme should not take you more than 2 years to complete, after which you will be able to enrol for a degree in Civil Engineering. Core subjects for any engineering course must include Physics and Mathematics. We suggest you to opt for a Foundation in Engineering in the top private engineering university in Malaysia, UTP or UM under the public university category. UTP's foundation programme only takes 1 year to complete and they also offer a Bachelor in Civil Engineering. If you'd like us to help you with your application, please click here https://afterschool.my/universiti-teknologi-petronas/foundation-in-engineering fill up your details on the right side of the page and we will contact you shortly
