If you’re from Malaysia and interested in studying in the UK, the University of Portsmouth is a great place to fulfil your ambitions. And if you’re ready to take the next step, we’re ready to help you get here.

On this page, you'll find information about where you can meet us in your region, what you need to do to apply for a course with us and contact details for our people in your area.

Entry requirements for students from Malaysia

If you're joining us from Malaysia, the entry requirements you need to meet will depend on the course you want to study.

We consider all applications we receive. However, to make sure you get the most out of your time studying with us and have the best chance of applying successfully, we recommend the following minimum qualifications:

Foundation courses

If you have completed the SPM (Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia) or UEC (Unified Examination Certificate - Senior Middle Level), you'll usually need to do a foundation year before doing an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree.

We recommend you take a foundation course at our associated college International College Portsmouth (ICP).

Undergraduate courses

For admission onto an undergraduate course such as a Bachelor's degree, you will need to have studied relevant subjects and achieved strong grades. In addition to a Foundation course, you can apply with a minimum of 3 STPM (Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia) subjects, or a Matrikulasi (Matriculation Certificate).

You can also apply with:

A levels

  • Please check your specific course page to find the exact number of points needed. Your A level grades should equal or exceed the total points required. You can use the UCAS Tariff Calculator to work out your total points.
  • Some courses will require you to have studied specific subjects at A level. For example, to study a science course you will usually need to have achieved passing grades in scientific subjects at A level.
  • A level points: A* = 56 A = 48 B = 40 C = 32 D = 24.

International Baccalaureate

  • Most courses will require between 24 and 31 points in the International Baccalaureate (IB), depending on the degree you apply for.

If you have a Diploma or Advanced Diploma you may be considered for advanced entry onto certain undergraduate degree programmes.

You may be able to join an undergraduate course with other qualifications. We do consider qualifications from a range of sources. Contact us to find out more.

Postgraduate courses

For entry to our postgraduate Master's programmes, you'll usually need to have a good Bachelor's degree with at least 2nd Class Honours from a recognised Higher Education institution.

If you don't meet the postgraduate entry requirements, you can do a pre-Master's programme at International College Portsmouth (ICP) for many of our courses.

PhDs

We'll consider you for a PhD if you have a good Master’s degree and submit a research proposal.

English language requirements

When you join us, it’s important that you can speak and understand English to the level that your course requires. The specific English language requirements will be on your chosen course page.

We accept IELTS, IGCSE and several other certificates, but don’t worry if you're currently short of the standard required – we offer English Language Programmes that will get you to the necessary level.

What to do next

Ready to start your adventure with us? Whether you know which degree course you want to do or not, get in touch with us now or meet us at an event near you to discuss your next steps.

Our Global Officers are experts in helping students from Malaysia, like you, to apply to join us. Whatever you want to know, just ask.

TB Clearance Certificate

Malaysian students planning to study in the UK must obtain a TB Clearance Certificate before applying for the Tier 4 Student Visa. We recommend that you obtain this as soon as possible, to avoid delays with the visa application process. TB Clearance Certificates are issued by UKVI-approved clinics. Full information can be found on the UKVI website.

Scholarships and Bursaries

As a student from Malaysia, you can apply for various scholarships and bursaries, including the International Alumni Referral Award, PassPort Bursary and Chevening Scholarship. You can find more information about these on our funding page.

Students from Malaysia are eligible to receive our PassPort Bursary. The PassPort Bursary gives privately-funded students a 10% tuition fee reduction for their first year of study at Portsmouth.
It applies to all degree courses with fees of £13,200 or above for 2018 entry. You can find more information about these on our funding page.

Representatives and agents

If you want to learn more about studying with us or you want help with your application, you can contact our South East Asia Office in Kuala Lumpur.
