Why study at Kolej Yayasan UEM (KYUEM)

KYUEM is Malaysia’s premium A-Levels college. Specialising in university preparation via Cambridge International Examinations, KYUEM is the equivalent of a British sixth form college. However, unlike its UK counterpart, KYUEM is a fully residential, co-educational institution.

Situated in a pristine, jungle environment, yet only 70km from Kuala Lumpur, the beautiful 50-acre campus offers everything that a motivated and intelligent young person needs to develop intellectually, socially and independently. We pride ourselves on providing the ideal preparation and training for entry to the world’s top universities.

2019’s results set a new record but were beaten by those of 2020, giving the college much to be proud of. The July 2018 and January 2019 cohorts of KYUEM students have again set another new record of Cambridge A-Level success this year. The following outstanding results bear witness to the students’ achievements in 2020:

  • 96% of grades earned were A* - B
  • 82% of grades earned were A* - A
  • 67% of students achieved at least 3 A grades
  • 32% of students earned 4 A grades
  • 29% of students achieved at least 3 A* grades

The academic results listed above would not be possible if not for KYUEM's dedication to guide and nurture their hard-working students. If you would like to be part of another record-breaking year, apply for the January 2021 intake. Enquire with us and check your eligibility now.

What is the different between 18 and 24 months course?

  • The 24 month programme starts in July and consists of 4 semesters
  • The 18 month programme starts in January and consists of 3 semesters
  • The 18 month programmes suits “fast track” students and is cheaper
  • The 24 months programme is more popular, usually using the SPM/IGCSE results as an entry benchmark
  • 18 month students can be admitted on TRIAL SPM exam results, but not on school forecast

What is AS and A2?

As is half of the A2 grade marked as a^, b^, c^, d^, e^ or U, while A2 is the full subject grade marked as A*, A, B, C, D, E and U.

Does this college run AS and A2 exam simultaneously?

The KYUEM structure requires AS and A2 to be taken together at the same time for 18-month students. If AS examinations are taken in November and A2 in June, students tend to neglect their A2 studies. The “linear programme” run at KYUEM has been very successful. Students on the 24 months course sit for the AS examinations at the end of their first year and the A2 papers at the end of their programme.

How soon will we hear of our application status?

  • 10 working days from the time application is received
  • A panel comprising the Principal, Head of Student Services, Head of Academic and Head of University Relations will decide on offers

Why does it seem so expensive compared to other colleges?

  • The track record speaks for the quality
  • We are a boarding school with state of the art facilities on site
  • We have an excellent teaching environment
  • We don’t focus just on academic training, but holistic education that prepares students thoroughly for university
  • Our fees are all-inclusive
  • We employ a high percentage of expatriate teachers
  • The reality is that it’s very cheap – UK boarding schools providing similar facilities will cost in excess of RM150,000.00 annually

Is IB better than A-levels?

  • IB is known for its breadth whereas A-level offers depth
  • At KYUEM we strive to develop all-round students, a balance between Sciences and Arts, academic and character-building via activities such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme
  • There is no such thing as a ‘better’ curriculum: all have strengths and weaknesses
  • A-levels are advantageous for those who wish to specialise sooner
  • High-quality overseas universities make no distinction between IB and A2

Is university placement assisted?

  • Yes, we assist in placing students
  • We have an excellent placement record: about 90% go to top 10 universities in UK, Ireland and Australia every year
  • We provide careful guidance for university application
  • We give workshops and mock interviews to prepare for interviews
  • Students will be thoroughly advised and guided throughout their college career

Are University places guaranteed?

  • No, places are not guaranteed but we have an excellent placement record: about 90% have gone to top universities in the UK, Ireland, US, Canada and Australia every year since we began nearly 20 years ago
  • We are not affiliated to any specific university
  • Places will also depend on results and performances in interview and entrance test where relevant
  • Over the years, we have established a very good rapport with reputable universities which helps greatly. It does not, however, guarantee a place

Scholarship chances upon enrolment?

  • No, the college doesn’t provide scholarship, neither can it influence sponsors’ decisions
  • We have recommended some good students who have in the past been successful. While we support, we are not responsible for making scholarship arrangement and don’t guarantee any

How are students monitored in terms of their results?

Students are monitored by means of regular homework, progress and assessment tests which are given by the teachers on a regular basis. Parents are able to check their child’s progress online.

Are students continuously offered places by universities?

No. This happens throughout the senior year. Universities might turn down applications if candidates do not meet entry requirements. Applications are made in the first semester of the senior year.

Are there any extra classes for the students?

Yes. This will depend on factors such as Oxbridge preparation or remediation.

What if student has not decided on what course they want to pursue?

The University Relations Office will advise students on their selection of course and university, based on their progress at KYUEM.

Are students allowed to bring hand phones?

Yes, but they can’t use hand phones during lessons.

Are parents allowed to come and visit teachers?

Parents who wish to meet their son’s or daughter’s teachers will need to make an appointment beforehand.

What are the requirements you look for in University applicants?

It depends on the university requirements. However, it is important to mention that the personal statement is one of the pieces of evidence which universities will look at. This will include factors such as extracurricular activities.

An academic subject may not available due to not many takers?

This can occur for the January intake. We only know after students make their choices. Usually, we require a minimum of six students per class.

What is the justification of subject selection grade i.e. English “A”, Mathematics “A” as your entry requirement?

The college is an English medium institution and all major universities require proficiency in Mathematics.
