Foundation Programmes - UNITAR International University

Foundation Programmes

After receiving your SPM results, you may be interested in pursuing higher education but are not sure which pre-university pathway to choose from. One of the Pre-U programmes you can explore in Malaysia is a foundation programme which will accelerate your academic journey to a bachelor’s degree.

At UNITAR International University, our foundation programmes provide a good introduction to your chosen area of study alongside industry insights before enrolling for undergraduate studies. 

Why should you consider UNITAR’s foundation programmes? Here are a few good reasons: 

Flexible Study Admission

  • What used to be an unachievable feat is now made possible for individuals to pursue their tertiary education through a minimum requirement of 5 credits in SPM, UEC, O-Levels or other equivalents for UNITAR’s foundation programmes. 

    Students who wish to apply to our university foundation programmes may consult with our education counsellors and apply online based on our academic intakes. The online application is open throughout the year, namely in January, May and September. 

UNITAR’s Foundation Bundling

  • What is Foundation Bundling? It is UNITAR’s initiative for making affordable foundation courses available in Malaysia. The Foundation Bundling offers a rebate for existing UNITAR foundation students who progress from foundation to bachelor’s degree in the next available intake. In other words, you can study our foundation programme for free when you continue to our bachelor’s degree programme*. 

    The rebate is awarded in the form of a tuition fee deduction from the undergraduate degree course. The tuition fee deduction of the undergraduate programme is evenly spread out across each semester.

UNITAR’s Student Touchpoints

  • We have “Faculty-Student Engagement” sessions every semester to provide career guidance for our students. During these sessions, our faculty members will sit down with each student to advise on their next steps. That way, UNITAR students will hit the ground running after graduation.

PTPTN Loan & Scholarships Available

  • UNITAR’s foundation tuition fees are one of the most reasonable in Malaysia. However, should you need further financial assistance, you can apply for UNITAR’s various scholarships as well as scholarship programmes offered by the government based on your excellent academic and co-curricular performance. 

    Alternatively, you have the option to apply for government financial aid such as PTPTN. Most foundation programmes in Malaysia are not under PTPTN coverage, but UNITAR’s foundation courses are!

Diverse Student Body

  • Our university is well-known for having a good-sized international student body. As a result, both international and local students can cultivate a rich cultural and learning environment at UNITAR. The positive personalities in students are seen based on the opportunity to socialise with students from other countries, exposing each other to different perspectives and lifestyles

10 UNITAR Locations Throughout Malaysia

  • UNITAR’s foundation programmes let you experience university life with comprehensive campus facilities. Other than the main campus in Kelana Jaya, UNITAR also has 10 other locations throughout Malaysia, including Sabah and Sarawak
