Do you truly believe that one can’t tell where they’re going until they know where they’ve been? If so, you may want to take up the study of History in Malaysia. Let us explain in detail the history of, well, history!

An education in History equips graduates with the necessary skills for a number of careers. The core of history is to learn about how historical events affect modern day society and culture. Yes, we know you’ve learned history in your high school syllabus but this goes way deeper, from the history of the British administration in Malaysia and Islamic history in South Asia to studies in Archaeology, nationalism, Malaysian politics and the Japanese occupation. For students majoring in History, you’ll be asked to read and examine past events. Students in this course will have to do plenty of thinking, researching and writing.

Do you speak more than one language? Not Bahasa Rojak that’s become the norm these days, but the authentic version of it? Do you like learning about how, when and where certain languages came from? Are you intrigued by the influence different languages dictate in bringing people closer together? If you do, then read on because you might want to consider enrolling in language studies.

The English language as one of the six official languages of the United Nations, is the most important international language that facilitates communication between peoples with different mother tongues when they meet anywhere in the world. It is also the international language of global trade, science and technology, diplomacy, international organisations and international exchanges in all areas of communication. Combining native and non-native speakers, it is probably the most widely spoken language in the world. It is one of six official languages of the United Nations.

Are you really good at memorising? While all your friends struggled with history and trying to recollect obscure dates, you wished all other subjects were exactly like it. Did you enjoy arguing, not silly shouting contests over something idiotic, but a thought-provoking, articulate debate perhaps? Do you also like those powdered puffy white wigs that judges use? Well then, if you do, studying Law in Malaysia might just be for you.

A course in Law teaches you the right skills to practice law in Malaysia. Students taking up law have to be open-minded, good in debating and see things at every angle. They need to be analytical and critical, not agreeing to disagree and definitely not take the easy way out to solve a problem. They have to be well-versed with current trends, international affairs and stick to a clear conscience. Law is the element that upholds the country’s integrity and lawyers help ensure that. Students get to choose which areas of law to specialise in; corporate, criminal, civil rights, intellectual property, etc. Lawyers are well-trained advisors to their clients, providing support in a variety of legal matters, civil or criminal.

Are you the one friends come to for advice all the time? Are some of your favourite shows Dr. Phil and Oprah? Do you know the difference between a psychiatrist, a psychologist and a counsellor? Are you good at helping people out, and can you picture doing it for the rest of your life? If so, then you may want to consider the course of Phychology. Let us slowly advise you on what the course will entail so you know exactly what you’re in for.

People who want to work in the mental health field may be unsure of the similarities and differences between psychiatrists, psychologists, and counsellor. While psychiatrists are medical doctors able to issue prescriptions and “counsellor” is an overarching term for individuals who work with patients to clarify their feelings, mediate tense situations and provide guidance for life’s decisions- Counsellors include individuals who work in mental health or marriage and family therapy, psychologists often work in tandem with these professionals to ensure patients receive both psychotherapy and medical treatment.
