The Petronas Scholarship in past years has seen students undergo a foundation or pre-university course, for 1 and 2 years respectively, before going on to pursue their Bachelor's Degree at either Universiti Teknologi Petronas itself, or external universities. There has been no confirmation as to whether this would include overseas universities so far. What we DO know is that the Petronas Scholarship 2018 represents a huge opportunity for SPM students, one that many have been eagerly anticipating. Good luck to all candidates!
