Making the Right Choices for the Best Course & Top University in Malaysia

I wanted my daughter to study a nursing diploma after her Pre-U. Luckily, after assessing my daughter, EduSpiral advised me to send her to Heriot-Watt as she had excellent results in her Pre-U & that engineering suited her more.
Mr. Yeo

Choosing a university to study in Malaysia is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. In addition, your decision will be influenced by many criteria such as the reputation & ranking of the university, accreditation of its courses, the suitability of the course against your academic results and career goals, tuition fees, quality of lecturers, facilities, friends & family, and more. We will discuss these in detail later.

Hence, choosing the right course at a top university in Malaysia for you will require some research and consultation with knowledgeable and experienced education advisors.

A knowledgeable counselor or education consultant  in Malaysia would be able to provide detailed information about the university and its courses, facts & evidence to support the job prospects for the course and in-depth information about  which university would be suit you. While an experienced counselor or education consultant would be able to analyse your results, understand your personality & skills to figure out which course and career suits you.

Choosing a top private university in Malaysia to study after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, Pre-U, A-Levels or STPM takes time, it is a process in finding out which one best fits you. Furthermore many of the top private universities in Malaysia offer similar courses therefore making your decision a challenging one! To help you develop a good list of criteria, you need to talk to the right counselors or education consultant who are knowledgeable and experienced. To find out which courses are high in demand in Malaysia, you can look at the Top 10 Courses in Demand in Malaysia.

Doing your homework will ensure that you have chosen the best university in Malaysia that will equip you with the knowledge and skills for a successful career.  The more research you put into the process the more likely you will make the right decision.

Many students in Malaysia are confused by advertisements, perceived popularity and rumours. They simply believe the advertisements or the claims made by their friends and relatives without checking if they are true or not. We have to make decisions based on facts and evidence.

Additionally, each university in Malaysia excels in particular areas, so you should ensure that your field of study is a strong-point of the university you choose. Choosing a university that is best in your field of study may provide you with access to more specialised opportunities, including custom-built facilities such as an Alienware Computer Lab for Game Design students, for instance), field-specific academic opportunities (such as student exchange programmes overseas) and employment opportunities with prestigious organisations in your industry (internships with industry partners, for example). Below is a list of top universities in Malaysia in their particular field of expertise.

How to Choose the Best Private University to Study in Malaysia

EduSpiral analysed my personality and results, subsequently advised me on choosing the right course as well as the best university that fit me.

Part of finding the right college or university in Malaysia for you will be picking out the criteria that matters to most to you, and then seeing if any of the top private colleges or universities in Malaysia that you’re looking at fit those criteria.

Choosing a university to study in Malaysia is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. In addition, your decision will be influenced by many criteria such as the reputation & ranking of the university, accreditation of its courses, the suitability of the course against your academic results and career goals, tuition fees, quality of lecturers, facilities, friends & family, and more.

Furthermore many of the top private universities in Malaysia offer similar courses therefore making your decision a challenging one! To help you develop a good list of criteria, you need to talk to the right counselors or education consultant who are knowledgeable and experienced.

The best private universities and colleges in Malaysia have excellent facilities, years of experience running the programme, strong student support services, internships and experienced lecturers.

They are also accredited by MQA and approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. Accreditation by the various professional bodies such as the Board of Engineers Malaysia, Pharmacy Board, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, etc also indicates the standard achieved.

The best private university in Malaysia will focus on quality, have award winners for the particular courses, years of experience offering the particular course, highly experienced lecturers, a good study environment (not a party university), internships, good mix of international & local students, extra-curricular activities and good facilities. The SETARA ranking is a guide for students to assess the quality of a private university in Malaysia.

When choosing a university and college in Malaysia, it is important for students to visit the campus and see the facilities and feel the culture of the students to see if it fits you.

Talk to the lecturers and find out from the counselors there about the courses and check if the courses have been accredited by MQA and other external bodies like the Pharmacy Board, Nursing Board, Malaysian Medical Council, Board of Engineers Malaysia , Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia or Persatuan Arkitek Malaysia.

The environment should be one where students speak mostly in English so that you can improve your English and communication skills. If you are weak in English and choose a cheap university where the students speak mainly in Mandarin, it will be difficult for you to improve your English.

Star newspaper has reported that graduates with good English earn 25% higher salary and get faster promotion. The Ministry of Education reported that there were more than 70,000 public university jobless graduates and one of the main reasons was poor command of the English language.

Would you rather suffer for 4 years and get a high salary for 60 years of your work life or an easy 4 years and low salary for 60 years? The decisions that you make now, can change your life forever. Remember the best university doesn’t mean it is the best university for you. The best university is one that fits your career goals, your personality and can push you to a higher level of success.

Common Factors on How to Choosing Top Universities and Colleges in Malaysia

I had financial difficulties for my studies and contacted EduSpiral for advise. He took me and my mum to tour the college which fit my budget. It had excellent facilities & a job guarantee!

  • Is the course popular at that college or university?
  • Quality/reputation/ranking of the private college or university in Malaysia
  • Relevant awards & achievements of the university
  • Are the courses recognised and approved by the Ministry of Education Malaysia and the relevant external bodies?
  • Are the courses accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Audit (MQA)?
  • Are the degree programmes recognised or accredited by the relevant professional bodies such as the Malaysian Medical Association, Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia (LAM), Malaysian Pharmacy Board, Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA), Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM), etc.
  • Type of programme (local degree, UK Dual Award degree, 3+0 UK or Australian degree, 4+0 American degree, degree transfer programme, etc)
  • Do the degree programmes have exemptions from professional bodies such as ACCA, ICAEW, CIMA, Chartered Institute of Banking, CFA, etc.
  • Do they have Internship and co-op programs during the diploma or degree?
  • Check the Entry requirements (Branch campuses in Malaysia have higher entry requirements)
  • Subjects offered in the Pre-University (Pre-U) Programme. Do they help you to achieve your undergraduate academic goals. Does the subject combinations allow you to enter your university and degree of choice.
  • Do they have enough students to start a class?
  • How many students do they have studying that course at that university?
  • What is the duration of the Pre-University (Pre-U), Foundation, Diploma or Degree Programme?
  • Does the college or university have a dedicated department to assist students for the overseas university and scholarship applications?
  • Does the college have regular visits from overseas universities so that you can expose yourself to the various universities and ask questions?
  • Quality of lecturers. What are their qualifications? How many years of experience in teaching?
  • Faculty contact/classes taught by full-time qualified & experienced faculty. What is the faculty to student ration?
  • Ask your friends who have studied there for their opinion. Ask your friends who are currently studying there as well.
  • How much money do I have to pay for the course and cost of living? Ask your parents. Note that you will need to have enough to pay the tuition fees as well as your cost of living. (tuition, hostel, food, transportation, etc.)
  • How much are the tuition fees? Does it include the external exam fees and other fees?
  • Financial assistance (Scholarships, PTPN Loan, EPF withdrawal, MARA Loan, etc)
  • Campus resources (labs, libraries, wifi, computer access, sports facilities, etc.)

Common Factors in Choosing the Best College or University for the Pre-University Programme in Malaysia

First, EduSpiral took me around to a few universities and advised me on which course that would suit me. Finally, after deciding, EduSpiral met up with me and my Dad to help me to register.
Jia Jin, Foundation in Design at Taylor’s University

Here’s a list of common criteria in choosing a top private university in Malaysia for the Pre-University (Pre-U) Programme:

  • What type of university do I like? (Large, medium, small, city, suburbs, or outer city) Some people like small universities where you get a community feel while others like large university campuses where they get to meet lots of people.
  • The size of the university also matters to some people as some prefer a small and friendly university environment where you know everyone’s names. Some may prefer a medium sized university where there are more students to interact with and more facilities to use like a bigger library, student centre, computer labs etc.
  • In large universities you might feel lost but there will be more facilities like a football field, gym, swimming pool, basketball courts, etc. You just need to understand your personality and then choose the type of university that fits you.
  • If you are a sports person, you might want to find one with a football field, basketball courts, gym or swimming pool.
  • Safety at the university campus and community.
  • Know yourself, if you like city life, don’t choose a university far away from the city even though the facilities are great. However, if you have a discipline problem in having too much fun, studying away from the city may be a good choice
  • What are the facilities and resources offered at the university? – engineering labs, computer labs, computers, science labs, sports facilities, student centre, job placement centre, etc. Note – You should expect to get what you pay for.
  • If you like sports, you may not want to choose a university without a basketball court or gym.
  • Is it near public transportation? This is important if you do not have transportation.

Talk to the Best Education Consultant in Malaysia to Help you Make the Right Choice in your Studies

My daughter was not sure if she was suited for game design so I contacted EduSpiral for advise. He listened to us and helped us to decide on the course & university.
Wei Shann, Game Development at KDU University College

Choosing a course to study after SPM is not a science, it is a process. Students in Malaysia need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

Ask the right Education Counselors in Malaysia to help you. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor in Malaysia would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration. EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

At EduSpiral Consultant Services, I have worked in the private higher education industry in Malaysia for more than 15 years advising students with facts and evidence on how to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, students may fill up our EduSpiral Career Assessment form for evaluation.

The EduSpiral Career Assessment form is a simple form designed by us that gathers information from students after SPM, O-Levels, UEC, STPM or A-Levels in order to assess their aptitude helping us to determine the most suitable course and career progression.

A Top University that Emphasises on Soft Skills will Enhance your Employability & Future Career Success in Malaysia

EduSpiral emphasised the importance of having good English for our future career. I am glad to join a globalised university which has helped me to improve my communication skills.
Vincent Yeoh, Accounting & Finance at Asia Pacific University

Human Resources Minister Datuk Seri Richard Riot Jaem: between 2010 and 2013, the number of unemployed graduates grew from 42,954 to 52,282. And the Department of Statistics, Malaysia has more bad news: From their 2014 survey, 399,500 people were unemployed in Malaysia. 60% of them were youth.

Lack of self-initiative and soft skills are among the main factors leading to unemployability among fresh graduates in the country. Soft skills basically are the personal attributes that enable someone to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people.

TalentCorp Malaysia chief executive officer Johan Mahmood Merican said some of the fresh graduates tended to take the job application process lightly, without taking the initiative to market themselves to the future employer.

Additionally, employers say many fresh graduates who have grown up in the tech era are less prepared for the human element of a new career. As a result, students who can hold a professional conversation, offer a strong handshake, and make eye contact gain an edge in hiring and promotions. For that reason, make it a priority to polish these much sought after skills.

Hard skills are the tangible and technical skills easily demonstrated by a candidate’s qualifications and specific professional experiences, soft skills is a term used by employers to refer to the more intangible and non-technical abilities that are sought from candidates.

Soft skills are sometimes referred to as transferable skills or professional skills. As this term implies, these are skills that are less specialised, less rooted in specific vocations, and more aligned with the general disposition and personality of a candidate. Examples of important soft skills are communication, teamwork, problem solving, critical thinking, leadership, time management, flexibility, responsibility and a strong command of the English language.

As an undergraduate student, you will learn these skills at a university that has a vibrant student environment with a high number of international students and extra-curricular activities for you to participate in. A solid internship programme at the university will also help to develop your soft skills.

Soft skills relate to your attitudes and your intuitions. As soft skills are tangible compared to your qualifications and more personality-driven, it is important to consider what your soft skills are and how you might show evidence of them before you apply for a job. This is particularly true of the recruitment process for graduate programmes, where transferable skills and potential often have equal importance to professional experience.

If everyone applying for a particular job, all the applicants possess the same degree qualification, what would make you stand out from them? Being able to demonstrate your soft skills equates to demonstrating great potential to succeed and progress in the career of your choice.

In order to succeed in the competitive working world, students must choose the best universities in Malaysia to study. Students must start as early as possible to develop their soft skills in order to be successful in their future career. Students should choose the right university that fits them which has a good reputation for their courses, excellent facilities, internships, top lecturers, extra-curricular activities, international environment and an English-speaking student environment.

Choosing the right course to study in Malaysia after high school is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life. In addition, when choosing the right course to study in Malaysia, one of the criteria that students should look at is the job demand. If you don’t plan carefully, you may end up studying a course that has no job demand after you graduate. This would be an incredible waste of your time and money. With the wide variety of courses available to a student, the time after high school or Pre-University can be a confusing one if not guided properly by an experienced and knowledgeable education counselor.

There is a tremendous demand for Data Scientists and Big Data Specialists worldwide now and in the future, with hundreds of thousands of new job opportunities emerging globally. In Malaysia alone, by the year 2020 this need is expected to reach at least 20,000 data professionals and 2000 data scientists. Job demand as well as salary for qualified Data Scientists or Big Data Professionals in Malaysia is high.

Choosing to study at a Top University in Malaysia for Data Science would ensure that you will receive the best teaching & learning environment and be well equipped with the necessary knowledge & skills for a successful career.

How to Choose the Best University in Malaysia to Study Data Science or Data Analytics

Studying Information Technology (IT) was my dream but my results didn’t achieve the requirements. But EduSpiral gave me in-depth advise & helped me to choose the right course that suited me.
Harold, Diploma in Business IT at Asia Pacific University (APU)

Data science, also known as data analytics or data-driven science, is an interdisciplinary field about scientific methods, processes, and systems to extract knowledge or insights from data in various forms, either structured or unstructured, similar to data mining.

Data science is a multidisciplinary blend of data inference, algorithm development, and technology in order to solve analytically complex problems. At the core is data. Millions of raw information, streaming in and stored in enterprise data warehouses. Much to learn by mining it. Advanced capabilities we can build with it. Data science is ultimately about using this data in creative ways to generate business value.

Data Science or Big Data Analytics focuses on designing and developing solutions to draw useful insights from the availability of large volumes of data, known as Big Data. Students will receive fundamental training in computer science theories and learn techniques on the processing of Big Data for analytics that can be impactful to business in Malaysia & globally.

In 2015, only 80 data scientists in local industry in Malaysia, targeting 1,500 by 2020. MALAYSIA’S national ICT custodian Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) said that seven public and private institutes of higher learning in country will be offering data science courses to university students, graduates and working professionals for careers in data analytics.

Malaysia’s national ICT agency Multimedia Development Corporation (MDeC) has unveiled a plan, supported by seven public and private institutes of higher learning (IHLs), to increase the number of local data scientists from the current 80 to 2000 by the year 2020.

Two of the top award-winning private universities chosen are

  1. Asia Pacific University (APU) – offers the UK Dual Award BSc (Hons) in Computer Science with specialism in Data Analytics
  2. Multimedia University (MMU) – offers the Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons.) Specialising in Data Science.

Important Criteria to Consider When Choosing the Best Data Science or Data Analytics Course at a Top University in Malaysia

EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.

What is Data Science or Big Data and How will it Impact Jobs in Malaysia?

EduSpiral picked us up from KL Sentral & brought us to the university for counseling and to tour the campus. In addition, he helped us in our application to the university.

Data is everywhere. In fact, the amount of digital data that exists is growing at a rapid rate—in fact, more than 2.7 zettabytes of data exist in today’s digital universe, and that is projected to grow to 180 zettabytes in 2025.

All this data—from your photos to the Fortune 500’s financials—has only recently begun to be analyzed to tease out insights that can help organizations improve their business. That’s why more organizations are seeking professionals who can make sense of all the data.

Data science is ultimately about using this data in creative ways to generate business value

Data scientists combine statistics, mathematics, programming, problem-solving, capturing data in ingenious ways, the ability to look at things differently to find patterns, along with the activities of cleansing, preparing, and aligning the data.

Dealing with unstructured and structured data, Data Science is a field that encompasses anything related to data cleansing, preparation, and analysis. Put simply, Data Science is an umbrella term for techniques used when trying to extract insights and information from data.

MALAYSIA has made clear the need to leverage on big data to propel itself into a developed digital economy, with one minister declaring it as key to the nation’s aspirations. The groundwork has been laid down, with the relevant agencies and certain technology multinationals having put their heads together to develop a big data policy framework. There are also plans for the country to appoint a chief data scientist over the next few years, a move aimed at developing local capabilities in data analytics.

In 2015, only 80 data scientists in local industry in Malaysia, targeting 1,500 by 2020.

Data Science Job has High Demand in Malaysia

EduSpiral helped me to find an affordable and yet world top ranked computer science university.
Vickey, Diploma in IT at Multimedia University (MMU)

BIG data seems to be in full throttle, developing exponential growth, looking at the amount of data being generated today. But what is big data? In a nutshell, the word literally means massive amounts of information that cannot be properly processed on a worksheet, database management system or across traditional software that people are accustomed to.

What organisations need to understand is data is no longer the sort of information that is used in the past, such as sales and financial related data, instead, real time information that needs to be constantly captured and analysed. Big data also encompasses analysing massive amounts of information an making good business out of it.

That said, the industry is reported to be lacking in data professionals as big data is a new and complex field. And due to its complexity, big data is not something existing institutions can develop overnight. That is basically why a specialised company like The Centre of Applied Data Science (CADS) is needed. It is the kind of firm that understands the nature of big data, realises the need for a holistic approach towards developing data professionals and is able to see the big picture, including the business that can be churned out of it.

Statistics show that by the year 2020, there will be about two million job openings for data professionals and that the demand for people with this knowledge and skill will outstrip supply by a ratio of two to one. It’s a global phenomena which is already in motion and Malaysia has set its sights on developing 20,000 data professionals and 2,000 data scientists by 2020.

“With a little bit of exposure and information to what big data has to offer and opportunities that lie ahead, this is really going to be one of the most exciting careers in the future, apart from artificial intelligence, robotics and the internet of things. I think a career in big data will easily be among the top 10 in the near future,” said CADS managing director Cheam Tat Inn.

CADS is Asean’s first and only one-stop platform and centre of excellence to empower the next generation of data professionals. Committed to delivering the highest standard in data science education, the centre aims to cultivate and mentor future data professionals to contribute effectively towards organisations in Malaysia and the Asean region, through accelerated and rigorous programmes and mentorship stints, unlike any other presently available in Southeast Asia.

The centre delivers programmes, many of which are through collaborations with a number of world-leading organisations such as the Harvard Business School, which targets top level executives who wish to understand big data analytics and its relevance to their business.

There is also a programme which is delivered in partnership with a company based in New York, called the Data Incubator programme. This programme is locally endorsed by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) andHuman Resources Development Fund (HRDF).

There are three main streams data professionals can branch out into – data scientists, data analysts and data engineers. While a career in data engineering would revolve around a job that is quite technical (imagine a mechanic working on a car), he or she is said to look at data a little differently compared to a data analyst, who is trained in programming skills, with a little aptitude in statistics and comes from a mathematical background.

Data scientists also are put on a higher pedestal, as this person is required to deal with higher levels of big data technicality and complexity.

“Soft skills are also very important and is also key in this profession because you need to translate complex situations into simple business language.

“A data professional must be able to take all the information, develop a mathematical formula, come up with a conclusion and present it to the top management – that is the skill required,” Cheam stressed.

To date, CADS has developed more than 750 data professionals and is looking at establishing more partnerships. Their latest is with Coursera, the largest, massive open online courses platform in the world, which offers a host of data science programmes from reputable universities around the globe, allowing one to attain professionally recognised and accredited qualifications.

For organisations to remain competitive and relevant, big data is no longer an option as it will become mainstream in the very near future. If organisations are not sensitive to big data, it will face huge impact. All it takes is one bad user experience and an organisation will be set back for days.

“The power of big data analytics can not only help in terms of competitiveness, but relevancy in the future. With all this information, you will then know how you can evolve and proactively change the company.”

High Salary for Data Science or Big Data Analytics in Malaysia

EduSpiral took us around to tour the campus and the hostel giving me & my family the assurance that we are making the right choice.
Jerry Cheong, Diploma in ICT at Asia Pacific University

Asean Data Analytics Exchange (ADAX) CEO Sharala Axryd believes data professionals such as data engineers, data analysts and data scientists are the “sexiest jobs” of the 21st century.

Sharala told The Malaysian Reserve in a recent email interview that these careers are in hot demand due to their highly valued skill sets.

“The world has positioned data professionals as jobs of the future, as the prospects of data science and analytics are endless.

“Besides a healthy remuneration package, data professionals are highly sought after and are needed across multiple industries within the next few years,” Sharala said.

She further said local data science fresh graduates can demand starting pay in the range of RM4,000-RM8,000 — making it the highest paid entrylevel job in the country today.

An experienced professional in the field can demand up to RM15,000, she said. “Data has become the new oil, as companies are constantly inundated with data that they need deciphering in order to create value for their products, services, customers and themselves.”

Sharala opined that it is important for the relevant bodies to create awareness among both youths and their parents, so that the latter can encourage their children to pursue beyond “traditional” jobs.

“I believe there will never be a shortage of data now and in the future, but there is a shortage of data professionals.

“People have no idea how huge is the demand for data scientists, data engineers and data analysts,” Sharala said.

She acknowledged many enterprises are struggling with the complexity of today’s big data and data science ecosystem.

“Though they recognise the opportunity of emerging practices, the shortage of trained data professionals remains at the top of the list of data science challenges that enterprises face.”

Top Colleges in Malaysia for Australian Matriculation

Study at Top Colleges for the Best Australian Matriculation Course in Malaysia

Written by EduSpiral Consultant Services For more information contact 01111408838

Students after SPM or O-Levels planning to study in Australia for their degree programme can consider taking the popular Australian Matriculation programme in Malaysia. There are basically two types of Australian Matriculation in Malaysia. They are the South Australian Matriculation (SAM or SACE International) and the Western Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT). These two programmes are recognised worldwide for entry into top universities.

However, there are some differences between the SAM and AUSMAT. Students should consider the differences and see which one suits them best. Students wanting to join the Australian Matriculation programme in March or April should take note that the AUSMAT offered at this intake is only 7 months in duration where it is condensed & intensive. The AUSMAT programme itself is quite difficult hence I would not advise students to go for the AUSMAT 7-month programme in March no matter what the counselor may tell you. Many top SPM students have taken the AUSMAT 7-month course and didn’t do well. Taylor’s College SAM programme for the March/April intake is 1-year in duration and would be a better choice where students would have enough time to prepare and do well.

The Best Australian Matriculation Programmes in Malaysia

Difference between AUSMAT and SAM/SACE International

Both of these pre-university programmes are based on the Australian education system and both incorporate a combination of coursework and final exams which ultimately leads to an Australian Year 12 qualification.

The South Australian Matriculation (SAM) or SACE International is administered by the SACE Board of South Australia, a statutory authority of the South Australian Government. SAM students will be assessed and graded based on 70% college-based assessment (coursework) and 30% final examination.

The difference between SAM/SACE International and The Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) is that AUSMAT is administered by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority of Western Australia, a statutory authority of the Western Australian Government. Unlike SAM, those studying AUSMAT will be assessed and graded based on 50% coursework and 50% examination.

Muttalib said as many as 107,000 unemployed graduates were recorded in the first four months of 2016 that occurred due to low academic qualifications, not enough interest in the job offered in addition to a mismatch the field of study at the university.  Therefore, don’t be one of the 107,000 unemployed graduates that made the wrong choice in their course.

Look at Job Demand and Trends in Malaysia when Choosing your Course

I met up with EduSpiral and he to me to a few universities for a tour. We also discussed about the courses in detail to help me decide which university would be best for me for interior design.
Kenneth, Interior Design at Taylor’s University

Traditionally prestigious professions still have it – those in these jobs remain sought-after today, although their counterparts in the digital industry are in high demand. Despite talk of oversupply, medical specialists, accountants, engineers, architects, pharmacists and dentists are still much needed in Malaysia.

These professionals are crucial for Malaysia to achieve developed nation status. These roles are important in ensuring affordable, quality service, especially healthcare, for the people. On the other hand, the manufacturing, wholesale and retail, and finance and insurance sectors may have too many workers.

Thanks to disruptive technology and the challenging economy, these industries (which were last year’s top retrenched fields) continue to see an oversupply of workers. There are also too many general practitioners, especially in urban areas.

The Critical Occupations List 2016/2017, which covers 10 key sectors in the country, underscores the need for accountants, engineers, software engineers, ICT professionals and tertiary level educators. This time around, however, lawyers – who were on the COL 2015/2016 – have been removed from the list, meaning they are no longer considered to be “critically needed”.

Malaysia’s Human Resources Ministry advised graduates entering the job market to study employment trends. Those thinking of manufacturing, wholesale and retail, and finance and insurance, should know that these sectors topped the retrenchment list last year, it said.

In 2015, there were no retrenchments in the professional, scientific, technical, administrative, support services, education, health, humanities, social work, water supply, waste management, art, entertainment, recreation, and household products and services sectors.

But the positive trend changed last year, according to the ministry’s latest statistics.

WHILE software developer, recruiter, database developer, information security specialist, data analyst, corporate tax specialist, payroll specialist, business intelligence consultant, regulatory specialist and marketing research specialist, are LinkedIn’s “top 10” most-in-demand talents, those interested in traditionally-popular fields also have reason to be optimistic. Many crucial areas like medicine, engineering and accounting, are still thriving in Malaysia.

And, according to Malaysian Employers Federation executive director Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan, the sales and marketing, hospitality, food and beverage line, are also hiring. He, however, says job seekers are reluctant to enter the sales and marketing profession, viewing the job as too demanding, especially with the need for English proficiency.

Multilingual talents for contact centres and customer service roles are also much-sought after, as are Human Resource professionals to help companies map long-term growth plans, he says. Meanwhile, companies involved in ICT, IT-enabled services and business process outsourcing, education and manufacturing, will continue filling key positions.

Job Demand for Information Communications Technology (ICT), Computing, Software Engineering & Cyber Security in Malaysia

EduSpiral picked me up from KL Sentral to tour the campus & provided counseling to help me make the right choice.
Qi Leem, Software Engineering Graduate from Asia Pacific University (APU)

Organisations in Malaysia are already reinventing themselves to embrace digitisation, so it comes as no surprise that this field is observing – now and in the future – a steady and strong demand. Software development, data centres, big data analytics and cloud computing are rapidly developing areas.

Digital or IT-related jobs, including content creators, data scientists and IT professionals will continue to stay in demand for the next decade.

And, with a growing number of large-scale cyberattacks including the global WannaCry ransomware which infected more than 300,000 computers in 150 countries this year, it’s no surprise that cybersecurity experts are high on the wanted list. Organisations need such professionals to safeguard their IT operations. According to Hays, the increasing threat of cyber security has created huge demand for security experts who can safeguard the IT systems of organisations against malicious cyber-attacks.

Meanwhile, Robert Walters Malaysia managing director Sally Raj says software developers and cyber security experts can expect significant salary raises of up to 25% when moving jobs in 2017, as cyber security professionals will be highly sought after across a number of industries, especially in the banking sector.

Job Demand for Finance, Banking & Investment in Malaysia

EduSpiral has given me great advise to choose the right course.
Jun Sern, Business Graduate from KDU University College

And, with financial institutions strengthening their governance structures, positions to manage anti-money laundering activities, sales and regulatory compliance, are opening up. New rules and regulations for financial institutions are being introduced, so, there’s a greater demand for risk managers and compliance professionals.  Candidates who are able to reduce financial institutions’ exposure to risk will stand out as employers step up their efforts to ensure they adhere to regulatory requirements. Risk and compliance will be two hot areas where fierce competition will take place for the right candidate

First, there was the enactment of the Central Bank of Malaysia Act 2009 and Financial Services and Islamic Financial Services Acts of 2013 which led to stricter legal and regulatory requirements. Then, there were continued and consistent efforts to strengthen risk management, governance and effective supervision. A combination of the two has resulted in a growing demand in risk, compliance, governance and audit roles in this sector.

Skilled finance, banking & investment professionals are projected to remain in high demand in Malaysia’s accountancy & finance job market as employers grow their businesses and add more value for clients. Strong demand exists for qualified graduates in finance, banking & investment possessing critical thinking skills, innovative, interpersonal communication skills and a strong command of the English language.

Although Malaysia’s finance sector is growing steadily the supply of talent has begun to decrease. That’s not good news especially now that Malaysia needs more finance talents in preparation for the Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) which is set to bolster the country’s economic landscape. TRX, Malaysia’s version of Wall Street, will bring together local and overseas financial institutions and other corporations in a single area. The country is said to require 40,000 qualified financial talents by 2020 yet about 56,000 new finance industry jobs will be available in the next 10 years.  That’s not nearly enough.

By 2020, the Malaysian financial services sector is predicted to create 275,400 new jobs, with positions relating to accounts, investments, international trade, sales and marketing and economics becoming widely available. Therefore, if you have decided on studying a degree in Finance, Banking & Investment, you have made the best choice for a solid future career. Just make sure that you choose the best university in Malaysia for you Finance, Banking & Investment studies.

Job Demand for Accountants in Malaysia

EduSpiral gave me in depth information on the accounting pathway & helped me to choose the right university
Gary Ng , Accounting Graduate from KDU University College

Under the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP), it’s envisaged that Malaysia will need 60,000 accountants by 2020 to transform Malaysia into a developed nation. The accounting profession is versatile and offers diverse opportunities.

It goes beyond the “accountant” title as job designations nowadays are more creative. The profession includes financial controller, chief financial officer, vice-president of finance, financial director and so forth. Malaysia is very much in need of accountants.

There’s a low number of accounting graduates registered with the Malaysian Institute of Accountants (MIA). However, in order to succeed in the accounting and finance career, graduates should be proficient in the English language.

Internal Auditors, Regulatory Reporting Analysts, and Financial Planning & Analysis professionals are among the skills in high demand across Asia, according to our latest Hays Quarterly Report of jobs in demand. In Malaysia there is a steady demand for Tax Managers, Accounts Payable/Receivable Managers, CFOs and Financial Controllers, Corporate Finance Managers, Risk Analysts and Credit Risk Managers, and Compliance Officers.

Job Demand for Insurance in Malaysia

EduSpiral has given me great advise to choose the right course.
Jun Sern, Business Graduate from KDU University College

The number of insurance agents stands at around 80,000. It’s been the same for many years. The ratio-to-population is 1:375. In Taiwan, the ratio is 1:77 – that’s 300,000 agents servicing a population of 23 million. There, the insured population is 260%. In Malaysia, only 54% are insured. To achieve Bank Negara’s insurance penetration rate to 75% by 2020, we need more agents. Most graduates want to “work” for a fixed salary of RM3,000 to RM4,000. But a career in life insurance offers a stable income of RM100,000 per annum after three years in business, if you work for it. Therefore, pursuing a degree in Marketing & Sales, Finance, Accounting or Business Administration are useful courses to equip you to enter the insurance career.

Given the expected continuous growth in the insurance market, it is anticipated that the demand for actuaries in Malaysia will continue to grow in the next few decades. Future regulatory developments (e.g. requirement for certification of IBNR) and the increasing need for risk management are likely to result in significant increase in demand for actuarial services by general insurers.  With only 100 qualified actuaries in Malaysia, the market for actuaries can perhaps still be considered unsaturated. 

Job Demand for Human Resource Management in Malaysia

I wasn’t sure of what to study & my mother found EduSpiral to talk to me. He helped me to choose a course that suited me & had good job prospects.
Min Yi, Human Resource Management at Asia Pacific University (APU)

Human Resource professionals need business acumen. Malaysian businesses will be looking for  qualified and experienced Human Resource professionals who are strategic thinkers and can help them map out long-term growth plans.

There is a shortage of candidates in logistics and supply chain in Malaysia. Demand for planning candidates in the supply chain sector will remain strong in 2017. It’s a niche area in which companies will need to offer generous packages to attract qualified candidates. Large MNCs will continue to drive demand for supply chain professionals as they streamline business processes within their local operations.

Job Demand for Logistics and Supply Chain in Malaysia

Supply chain includes transportation and logistics. This industry will continue to grow, as Malaysia is strategically located and has easy access to regional resources and supply chains within South East Asia.

Job Demand for Engineers in Malaysia

I talked to EduSpiral on WhatsApp and after obtaining all the necessary information. EduSpiral met me and my parents at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia to take us around for a tour.
Aun Jie, Chemical Engineering at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia

In developed nations, there should be at least one engineer to a group of 75 to 150. Last year, Malaysia’s population stood at about 31.7 million, so with 200,000 engineers, we’re close to the 1:150 ratio. But we should target a ratio of 1:100 by 2020 to speed up our transformation to a developed nation.

There is a shortage of qualified engineers suitable for the crucial role of overseeing construction projects and infrastructure development works, according to the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM).
IEM president Datuk Lim Chow Hock told StarBiz that there were only about 150,000 experienced engineers in Malaysia.

“We are still short of 50,000 to meet the requirement in the construction and infrastructure sectors. The experienced engineers are needed in the consultation and management departments,” he said. Lim added that the demand for consultation and management engineers for government construction and infrastructure projects would mitigate the impact of the slowdown taking place in the construction industry.

It is noted that in the Ninth Malaysia Plan presented by the Prime Minister of Malaysia in March 2006, the government plans to increase engineering student enrolment for public and private universities with the target annual growth rate of 12.2% and 20.8% respectively (Malaysia 2006a). In 2006, an estimated 10,571 students entered first year engineering studies in public and private universities.

Therefore with the expected growth, the government is projecting that more than 77,000 and 222,000 engineering graduates will be produced altogether from all the Malaysian universities in the next 5 and 10 years respectively.

In a 2006 Report by the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, Mechanical engineering is viewed as the field of engineering most highly demanded in the future with a projected increase of 24% from 5 to 10 years (from an estimated number of engineers of 58000 to 72000).

About 8% of the respondents indicated a demand for other engineering fields, such as biomedical, computer engineering, instrumentation and technology, marine technology, mechatronic, software engineering and process engineering. According to the report, the demand is highest for: Mechanical Engineers, next is Electrical, Civil, Electronic and finally Chemical.

Job Demand for Social Media Marketing Professionals in Malaysia

My dream was to study at Taylor’s University and with the Taylor’s Excellence Award that EduSpiral shared with me, I am able to achieve it.
Chun Tim, Foundation in Business into Finance at Taylor’s University

Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) executive director Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan said social media experts were now much sought-after as many businesses strengthened their social media platforms to become more sales-driven. Many Malaysian businesses look to solidify their social media platforms to become more sales-driven. This will create demand for multi-faceted social media marketing professionals who can not only curate, edit and write content to drive engagement and awareness on a daily basis, but also manage paid advertising designed to create leads and drive sales.

According to a Top Markets report, e-commerce adoption rates in Malaysia make up 70% of the population, and this is partly due to the government’s effort in pushing for online businesses. Job seekers can definitely look towards this field, as the sector is expected to grow by 34% this year to US$3.8bil, BMI Research reported. What job seekers may be interested to know is that Alibaba intends to set up a regional distribution hub here, which can only mean more job opportunities.

Job Demand for Medical Specialists in Malaysia

With only 7,000 over medical specialists, including 4,000 in the public service, there’s an overall shortage of specialists. It’s not just the numbers that’s the issue, but the need to maintain the high standard of specialists. On a positive note, there’s a fair distribution of these specialists nationwide. Due to supply, demand and remuneration, there may be an oversupply in urban and semi-urban areas. But in rural areas, GPs are scarce.

Job Demand for Pharmacists in Malaysia

I talked to EduSpiral on Facebook to find out which is the best place to study A-Levels to help me achieve my goals. I am glad I did.
Gan Wei Cheng, 3A* in A-Levels at KDU College Penang and now JPA Scholarship at U. of Sydney for Pharmacy

Malaysia is producing over 1,300 pharmacy graduates yearly. The recommended ratio by WHO for developed countries is 1:2,000. Our ratio to population is 1:2,837 and 59% of registered pharmacists are in the public sector.

Household names like Pfizer, GlaxoSmithKline and AstraZeneca operate in Malaysia, attracted by government incentives and access to the ASEAN Economic Community (a market of US$750m). The Ministry of Health (MoH) also encourages foreign investment by offering off-take agreements to new pharmaceutical companies, like the agreement signed with Indian corporation Biocon to supply insulin to state hospitals and clinics.

The government is seeking to foster a homegrown pharmaceutical industry, for currently 70% of pharmaceutical products are imported. The pharmaceutical manufacturing Entry Point Project (EPP) ‘seeks to capitalize on the impending expiry of patents on major drugs to increase Malaysia’s generic drug manufacturing capacity’. Malaysia will produce generics of drugs with expired patents or forms contracts with foreign pharmaceutical companies to manufacture new generics on their behalf. The stage is thus set for larger companies to formulate collaborative partnerships with homegrown industry, passing manufacturing expertise and operational knowledge onto new start-ups.

According to MIDA, of the 264 licensed pharmaceutical premises in Malaysia only 77 are licensed to produce ‘modern medicines’ (antibiotics, injectables, painkillers, health supplements etc.). This proportion will need to increase in the future, and Malaysia certainly provides an ideal manufacturing environment. Malaysia has a strong intellectual property (IP) protection framework, and its membership of the Pharmaceutical Inspection Cooperation Scheme (PIC/S) and commitment to the latest Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) will ensure stringent quality control for new manufacturers.

The global pharmaceuticals market is approximately US$132bn. In 2015 Malaysia’s share was estimated at US$2.3bn (over twice that of Singapore) and is projected to reach US$3.6bn by 2020. This is likely a conservative projection and the real figure could be much higher, especially if Malaysia exploits the opportunity to export halal-certified pharmaceutical products to members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

Job Demand for Architects in Malaysia

According to the Malaysian Institute of Architects (PAM), the number of architects should be increased. To achieve the ideal ratio of 1:4,000, we need 7,500 architects in Malaysia. The present ratio of 1:15,000, is far below the ratio in most developed countries. It’s time for us to build capacity to compete with international firms.

Local firms are facing increasing competition from these firms, both here and abroad. Due to the current soft market in the local development sector, the demand for architects is lower. But with new infrastructure, townships, housing and building projects starting to grow again, the market is expected to improve. Demand for architects in Malaysia will start to increase by 2020.

Job Demand in Malaysia for Health Care

EduSpiral picked us up from Subang Airport to take us to visit the universities & advised on which is the best for mass communication.
Hui Lan, Mass Communication at KDU University College

Malaysia is an emerging centre of medical tourism in APAC and in 2015, Malaysia’s medical tourism industry was estimated to have earned revenues of US$350 million.

Efforts made to growth this sector are expected to highlight Malaysia’s advantages to medical tourist as a location for high quality, cost effective healthcare. Additionally, with the current international wave of interest for wellness and traditional therapies Malaysia is well placed to attract health travellers for a combination of wellness and health vacations.

According to the Ministry of Health (MoH), healthcare was the fastest-growing industry between 2000 and 2009 and thus recognised as a key driver of economic growth. In 2010, the Economic Transformation Programme (ETP) was established to transform Malaysia into a high-income economy by 2020. Under this initiative, healthcare was identified as one of 12 National Key Economic Areas (NKEA) to receive substantial government support and funding. The Healthcare NKEA focuses on encouraging areas of public-private collaboration and attracting investment in key manufacturing and service industries.
This is being driven by seventeen Entry Point Projects (EPPs), which are expected to create 181,000 new jobs by 2020. These projects span a broad range of areas, from fostering a homegrown pharmaceutical industry, to establishing a range of care services for the elderly, to constructing a ‘world-class campus for healthcare and bioscience’.

Under the ETP, conditions for medical tourism have flourished. At the International Medical Travel Journal’s (IMTJ) Medical Travel Awards 2016, Malaysia swept up an array of awards for the second consecutive year, including ‘Destination of the Year’. But how is Malaysia distinguishing itself from its regional competitors?
As noted by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), within the tourism sector – Malaysia’s fifth-largest industry – the medical subsector expanded by over 20% a year from 2011-2014. Revenues from medical tourism in 2010 totalled RM380m (US$86m). Although initially projected to grow annually by 10% up until 2020, actual figures are closer to 30%.

How to Choose the Best Course to Study at the Top Private University in Malaysia

My mum contacted EduSpiral to help advise me on which course & university to choose as I was quite confused. He took us to visit the universities & helped guide me to make the right choice.

It is important to choose the right course to study – you don’t want to waste your time and money on a course you don’t want to do (or end up dropping out of). To help you decide which course is right for you, make a list of courses that are of interest to you.

Looking at your results in SPM could help you to decide which course you would be good at. If you are good in Maths & Physics then you can consider Engineering courses. Having good results in Chemistry, Biology & Maths, you can think of a career in Food Science, Pharmacy or Medicine. Talking to an experienced education advisor would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Many students after SPM make the mistake of just listening to advise without verifying whether the information given is true or not. In addition, just because you have heard or seen a lot of advertisements by a particular university, doesn’t mean that it is the best in that course.

Many of the course counselors at the universities are paid by the universities to get you to register there, so their main motivation is to get you to register, not to help you make the right choice.

You should also ask yourself if you would still be interested in that subject for a further three or four years – enough to motivate yourself to work and research independently? Remember, you are going to work in this career for the next 50 years after graduation, therefore, you should have a high interest in the course.

The course that you choose should also have a job demand for you after you graduate. Choosing a course that you are passionate about without job demand and you may end up being jobless. Look for statistics and research to support whether there is a job demand for your future career in Malaysia or Singapore. Here at EduSpiral Consultant Services, we do our research on the job demand for the careers in Malaysia, Salary Reports, and universities so that we can advise our students based on facts and evidence.

Now why would you want to talk to EduSpiral Consultant Services when you can contact the private universities directly? Well, EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at. We have worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

How to Choose the Right Course to Study after SPM?

After I finished my SPM, I felt confused about my further study. Eduspiral, was so patient to answer all my questions and took us around for a campus tour.

It can be confusing for students to choose the right major for their undergraduate degree studies in Malaysia. Preparations should have been made even before this time but fear not it is still not too late if you have not decided on a career path. It is important for you to research carefully the career that you intend to pursue.

Students after SPM or O-Levels would need to go through some sort of a Pre-University programme before entering into the degree course. Therefore, you still have about 1 to 1.5 years in your Pre-U programme to really figure out what to study for your degree.

It can be confusing to choose the right course after SPM. You should carefully think about what are the options available to you. To choose the best course that fits you, you need to consider the following:

  • Look at your results – what are your best & worst subjects, and which subjects are your favourite?
  • What are your interests & hobbies?
  • What is your passion?
  • Job demand for the career of choice. There is no point in choosing a course out of passion and then graduate to find out that you cannot get a job in that field.
  • Salary of the career of choice
  • Discuss the budget for your studies with your parents. There is no point in choosing a course like Pharmacy or Medicine, if you cannot afford it.

Choosing a course to study after SPM is not a science, it is a process

in finding out who you are and what you are good at. An experienced Education Advisor would be invaluable in assisting you to choose the right course. Students need to talk to the right education counselors so that you get the right information to help you in making this life-changing decision.

Ask the right Education Counselors. Would you ask a Doctor on how to repair your car? Or would you ask a mechanic for medical advise? Although this sounds ridiculous, but many students do listen to advise from young and inexperienced counselors from universities, colleges or agents’ offices.  Talking to an experienced education advisor would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.

Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration. EduSpiral Consultant Services staff have more than 15 years experience in counseling students. Having worked in the private education industry, we have in-depth knowledge of each private university and college in what they are good at.

EduSpiral Consultant Services has worked with our partner universities and colleges for many years while the counselors at the private universities or agents’ offices change every few years therefore they would not have the in-depth knowledge of the courses and the university that they are working at.

some of the reasons why you should take a Foundation in Business at a top private university in Malaysia.

By taking a Foundation in Business, you will be exposed to various Business topics, such as Accounting, Management, Economics and Marketing. This is advantageous as it will help give you an idea of what to study for your degree if you are still unsure.

Top private universities in Malaysia would ensure a quality in their Foundation programmes so that students would be well prepared for their degree courses. Do not choose the Foundation in Business because it is the cheapest. It may not prepare you well to handle the degree programme.

The environment in top private universities is one that’s vibrant, multi-cultural and English-speaking. These are necessary components for a successful career in the competitive work place.

Top universities offering the Foundation in Business in Malaysia are Heriot-Watt University Malaysia, Asia Pacific University, Curtin University Sarawak and First City University College.

A Foundation in Business at top private universities in Malaysia would be 12-months in duration. It is divided into 3 semesters. They would be 3 long semesters which are 14 weeks long.

Unlike how A-Level and SAM are administered by a central body (Cambridge or EdExcel administers the A-Levels and the South Australian education board administers SAM), a Foundation in Business is administered by the private university itself.

Assessments are a mixture of coursework, assignments and exams. It is generally accepted that the Foundation course is easier than the external Pre-University programmes. Quality of the Foundation in Business programmes are assured with the accreditation from MQA.

Students who have completed the Foundation in Business may transfer to other private universities in Malaysia for their degree programmes.

course you don’t want to do (or end up dropping out of). To help you decide which course is right for you, make a list of courses that are of interest to you.

Is it a subject you have already studied? For example, maybe you loved the English subject and you read novels for pleasure in your own time. You can consider Teaching English as a Second Language, journalism or Mass Communication. In addition, you don’t have to do a journalism degree to become a journalist – many degrees are considered!

Maybe you’ve always been interested in computers and the internet at home, and enjoyed maths at school, so are considering a degree in computer science, a course subject you probably won’t have studied before. Experienced education counselors are able to analyse your interests, personality and exam results to help you make a list of possible courses for consideration.

Looking at your results in SPM could help you to decide which course you would be good at. If you are good in Maths & Physics then you can consider Engineering courses. Having good results in Chemistry, Biology & Maths, you can think of a career in Food Science, Pharmacy or Medicine. Talking to an experienced education advisor would help you to navigate through this confusing time of choosing the best course that fits you.
