Hi Goh Seng Shya,

As long as you have a Masters or PhD, you will be able to become a lecturer in any IPTA or IPTS. Most universities will accept Masters holders, though there are certain universities that would require you to hold a PhD. You may even become a lecturer with a degree but only with substantial experience.

Hope this helps! Good luck.

Hi Muhammad,

Unfortunately most institutions require that a degree in Accounting holder achieve at least a CGPA of 3.00 to be allowed admission. In fact, even to pursue ACCA locally BAcc holders are required to at least have a CGPA of 2.50 or above, as set by the MQA.


Hope this helps!

Hi Nurulfaris,

A postgraduate degree may take between one to four years to finish on average. This may differ depending on the course you're taking, the institution offering it, and the mode of study. It may take longer if you are doing it part time, or shorter if you are doing online or distance learning. This is because most if not all postgraduate courses have flexible modes of study to cater to working adults, or those with financial issues. You should also know that a postgraduate qualification is not only limited to a postgraduate degree. You could always go for a postgraduate diploma or certificate too!


Hope this helps! :)

Hi Pharah, 

It depends how different are the programmes. If it's still in the same field, then it's acceptable but if it's too different, then you might not be allowed to. For example, if you studied a degree in mass communication and want to do a specialisation in a medical field, that is not possible. The only way to go about this is to do a degree that is related to the postgraduate field you want to study. Even if it's in the same field, do check the entry requirements of the master's programme first because some may require specific qualifications. 

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have any more queries :)

Hello Winson,

Can you please tell us your highest qualification? This is because a Bachelors Degree and Masters Degree are both different levels of study, where you must have a Bachelors Degree before you can actually apply for a Masters Degree.

Besides that, to be able to apply for a Bachelor's Degree, you will need a pre-university qualification like STPM, Foundation, Matriculation, Diploma, etc. as well. 

Therefore, we will need the details of your highest qualification to be able to help you choose the most suitable course for you.

We hope to hear from you soon :)

Thank you for your response. The information you gave is very useful. Let’s say if I go for my bachelor degree in psychology and after this degree I would like to further my master degree in Speech Science in UKM, is it possible? What are the basic requirements needed for this course?

Hi Nicole,

As long as your psychology degree was rooted in science-related subjects (i.e. a Bachelor of Science in Psychology as opposed to a Bachelor of Arts), you will be able to pursue a master's degree in speech pathology.

However, do note that speech pathology is not offered as a clinical master's course in Malaysia; there are very few universities that offer courses in speech pathology. For example, UKM offers both a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in research in Hearing and Speech. Besides that, USM offers a bachelor's degree in speech pathology.

Hope this helps!
