The below are guidelines only and do not guarantee entry. Each application will be judged on its own merits.
Students must have passed the SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia – Malaysia Certificate of Education) or equivalent with minimum grades of C/6 AND one of the following:
- A Levels;
- Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia qualification, (STPM). Applicants with equivalent grades to A Level in three of the five subjects with Grades A-D or CGPA 2.00 will be considered for admission to Level 1 of undergraduate programmes;
- Malaysian Independent Chinese Secondary School (MICSS). Applicants need the following: 5 Unified Examinations Centre (UEC) subjects at minimum B5, including Maths and English, excluding Chinese. For sciences these 5 subjects must include 2 science subjects;
- Pre-U Canadian Matriculation – Ontario – Secondary School Diploma with at least 70% in 6 4U or 4M Courses;
- SAM (South Australia Matriculation) or AUSMAT (Australian Matriculation). These are one-year to one and a half years pre-university matriculation programmes. Students who have passed would meet the requirements for SACE (South Australian Certificate of Education) and thus qualify for an ATAR score. Students with only Record of Achievement have not been awarded SACE. The required ATAR score is 67%;
- A recognised Pre-University or foundation programme.
Those applicants who do not meet the above entry requirements or would like to improve their English language before studying for a degree, could consider applying for one of the foundation degrees offered at our academic partner Bucks New University.
