You can refer to one of the articles we wrote about this topic where we compared all the pre-university programmes: Which Pre-U Course Should You Choose?
The shortest pre-university program would be AUSMAT which takes only 11 months. A more affordable option for you would be Foundation and it only takes one year as well.
Here are a few universities that offer Foundation courses:
SEGi University & Colleges Kota DamansaraInternational University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW)IIUM - International Islamic University Malaysia
If you are interested in any of them, you can fill up the form on the right hand column of the page, and our counsellors will get back to you soon :)
Feel free to browse through our site as well to find out more about pre-university courses and the institutions that offer them.
Hope this helps :)

Hi Yirthick, Actuarial Science Degree requires either A-Levels or Foundation in Arts. Universities that offer Actuarial Science Bachelor Degree will have Foundation Programs tailored for the degrees in that same university.
Hi again Nusrah,
1) Both STPM and Foundation can lead you to do those three courses. You just need to study the right subjects in order to meet the minimum requirements to apply for a degree in those fields, which is mainly Mathematics.
2) STPM is a public pre-u programme. It takes 1.5 years to complete but to enrol in a public university, you'll need to wait another 1/2 year for the next intake. This adds up to 2 years before you can actually start your degree course. Whereas Foundation only takes one year and you can enrol for a degree straight away in the same institution. You will complete your studies faster than those who take STPM. We would advise you to take Foundation as it is a better choice. Curtin Sarawak is one of the institutions that offer a Foundation in Commerce and Bachelor in Accounting and Finance. If you're interested, you can apply for it here and we will help you in the application process: https://afterschool.my/curtin-university-malaysia/foundation-studies-commerce
3) ACCA, CAT and LCCI are professional qualifications. You do not need to complete a pre-u programme to enrol for it. You can go straight to CAT or LCCI and then ACCA.
Pre-University is a study level that consists of STPM, Asasi, Matrikulasi, A-Levels, Foundation, IB, ADTP, CPU, AUSMAT, etc. They are all categorised under 'pre-university' level. Each of them have their own pros and cons, some being more affordable, some leading you to study at overseas institutions, some have a shorter duration, etc. Diploma is also the same level but people generally call diploma just as it is. A diploma is more specific than other pre-u programmes. For example, there are only a few streams in Foundation such as science, arts, engineering, business, etc. But for diploma, you have Diploma in Information Technology or Business and Accounting, etc. This article explains in detail what all these courses entail: https://afterschool.my/find-course/which-pre-u-course-should-you-choose
Hope this helps.
