The Malaysian Education System

 

The Malaysian government provides free education at primary and secondary level. Primary and secondary educations as well as the higher education system are regulated by the Ministry of Education and Higher Learning.
There are two different types of primary schools run by the Government. Aside from "normal" government schools, there are also "vernacular" schools offering Chinese or Tamil as the basic language of instruction.
Secondary school is offered in: national schools, religious schools and national Chinese or Tamil-type schools.
Almost all Malaysian students wear school uniforms that are standardized across the country.
 
The Malaysian school system is structured as follows:
 
• Optional kindergarten (age 3-6). There are few government-run kindergartens in Malaysia, most of them are private.

• Compulsory Primary School (7-12) is divided into two phases of three years each, at the end of which elementary students must pass the Primary School Achievement Test.

• Secondary education (13-17 years) is divided into lower secondary (3 years) and upper secondary (two years) ending in a standardized test. There are two different final tests, depending on whether the student was attending the last two years in the technical high school / academic or the professional branch.
• Post-secondary education (age 17-18) prepares students who want to attend college.
• College Education

 

School hours and holidays

 

The school year begins in Malaysia in January and lasts till the third week of November. The minimum number of school days per year is 190. Malaysian students have 5 holidays totaling 11 weeks. The regulations determining holidays throughout the year are monitored by each school.
Classroom hours are a problem in Malaysia's education system. Due to a large number of students and shortage of schools, students are taught in a two sessions. The first session runs from approx. 7.30am to 2.30pm, while the afternoon session, lasts until 6.45pm.
 
Public schools
 
In Malaysia the public sector covers over 95% of all institutions of primary and secondary education and 50% of tertiary education. The Kindergarten is usually not subsidized by the government.
 
Primary education in Malaysia
 
The basic syllabus in public schools in Malaysia includes Malay language, English and Mathematics. The total number of weekly lessons in these subjects is reduced in the second stage of secondary education, where other subjects are incorporated such as Science, Life Skills or Local Studies. The main objectives of Life Skills are to teach the student trade, entrepreneurship and manipulative skills. Chinese and Tamil schools, have almost the same curriculum. The only difference is that the Chinese and Tamil are the main subjects, followed by the Malay Language and Mathematics. English is not taught until the second phase of primary education.
After the first phase, students attend the Primary School Achievement Test (Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah - UPSR).
 
Secondary education in Malaysia
 
Students attending national schools can proceed directly to the national type secondary schools, while the national school students must attend an additional transition year in order to achieve a satisfactory level of Malaysian.
In secondary schools, students may, in addition to the compulsory subjects, choose from a wide range of electives in the field of humanities, vocational education and training / technical sciences and Islamic studies.
 
According to the result of the students in the high school examination (Penilaian Menengah Rendah - PMR), students are divided into different levels: superior academic, technical or professional. At the end of upper secondary education students in academic / technical will obtain the Malaysian Certificate of Education Examination (MCE), while students of vocational schools will receive the Certificate of Professional Education of Malaysia.
 
Postsecondary Education
 
During the two years of post-secondary (or pre-university) students prepare for both the Malaysian Higher School Certificate (Persekolahn Sijil Tinggi Malaysia) as well as for entrance exams for college.
 
Private schools
 
Private education is offered in Malaysia at all levels, from nursery to tertiary education. However, private educational institutions play a more decisive role in the field of higher education than at the lower levels.
The private sector is seen as a way to balance the public system in relation to the vast majority of students. In the field of primary and secondary education covers only about 5% of schools in Malaysia. Private schools follow the same curriculum as the public sector in Malaysia. If you intend to enroll your child in one of these schools is advisable to organize Malaysian tutorials to ensure your child is fully integrated and able to follow the courses.
 
International Schools
 
There are many international schools in Malaysia, most of them in Kuala Lumpur. These schools tend to follow an international curriculum (curriculum as American, British and Japanese). This means they are accredited abroad and students can continue their studies beyond Malaysia without any restrictions in the respective countries.
The cost of tuition varies from school to school.
* Mutiara International School
* Utama International School
* The Alice Smith School
* German School Kuala Lumpur
* The International School of Penang (Uplands)
* Garden International School
* ELC International School
* Fairview International School
 
Universities in Malaysia
 
There are currently 20 public and 32 private universities in Malaysia. The requirements for admission to these universities are: STPM examinations (Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia) or a comparable foreign degree.
 
Private universities in Malaysia
 
Public universities are not necessarily worse than private ones. Until recently public universities were the higher education student’s preference. 
However, the public sector often fails to provide students with broad and flexible courses, which are provided by private institutions.
 
Conditions of tuition for foreign students
Students who apply directly to the private or public university in Malaysia, must first be approved by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia and by the Rating Agency of Malaysia (MQA).
All public universities allow international students.

Healthcare in Malaysia
 
Hospitals are generally well equipped and doctors are well trained.
The Malaysian government invests a major effort in improving and developing its health system. In addition, the budget in the public health sector has increased considerably in recent years.
The health care system in Malaysia offers universal access to all its residents. It is divided into public sector and government-private health system. Many doctors have been educated in Western countries (United Kingdom, Ireland and Australia) and most speak English.
 
Malaysia has no reciprocal health care agreements with other countries. Tourists and other visitors from Malaysia, who are not residing in Malaysia, have, therefore, to consult private practitioners and private medical institutions. The costs can be very high and private clinics require immediate payment, so you are advised to purchase travel insurance beforehand.
