Bachelor degree at UiTM

It is not possible to enter an undergraduate program at UiTM after the 11th grade. In Malaysia, school education lasts longer than 11 years, so applicants need to complete one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.), or study for a year at a university in their home country.

UiTM campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in Shah Alam. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The university has a library where students can do their homework, write scientific papers or just read interesting books. UiTM accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
