STPM 2010 And Studying in Hong Kong

Filed under: education, malaysia, singapore, Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — toru @ 2:58 pm

I seemed to have neglected this blog for quite some time. But I noticed a spike in readership especially on my post on what to do after STPM. Another year has passed and we have a fresh crop of bright young things doing well in STPM. Well done! Remember to apply to Singapore universities besides the local ones. Don’t be caught flat footed if for some strange reason the local universities reject you.

For students who can afford it, you can consider Hong Kong as an alternative to the usual places where Malaysian students have traditionally gone like Australia, UK and the US. Further information on undergraduate studies can be found here. Information on postgraduate studies can be found here. I don’t know why Malaysian students have traditionally not gone to Hong Kong but there are many good reasons for going to study in Hong Kong. The universities are excellent, the city is vibrant and exciting for a young person and if you speak and write Chinese, job prospects ought to be quite good in Hong Kong and big cities in China after graduation.

  1. I don’t know if you can help me out. I am a Malaysian and have been studying Mechanical Engineering in University of Curtin, Perth Australia, but was not able to continue with my studies as I failed a subject after repeating the papers. I am now in my third year. I am still interested in studying mechanical engineering and wanted to continue with the studies in Singapore. Is there any possibility of doing it in Singapore?
