FAQs about Studying Australian Matriculation in Malaysia

What is Australian Matriculation?

Australian Matriculation is an Australian-based qualification that is offered to students before entering university. It is considered a Year 12 qualification, which is equivalent to STPM or Malaysian Matriculation (Matrikulasi).

In Malaysia, colleges mainly offer two types of Australian Matriculation:

  • SACE International or South Australian Matriculation (SAM)
  • Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), or sometimes known as AUSMAT

Both SACE International and WACE are coursework-based, where your final grades will be based on a mix of coursework and examination. Most students typically take 5 subjects, including English.

This course is recommended for those who prefer doing assignments and class tests throughout the year, as opposed to having only one examination at the end of your course.

What are the minimum entry requirements for Australian Matriculation?

Australian Matriculation courses in Malaysia require at least 5 credits (C and above) at SPM, O-Level or equivalent.

However, if you want to take certain Science and Math subjects, such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Specialist Mathematics, you will need to fulfil subject pre-requisites. What this means is that you need to have studied and achieved the minimum required grades for the relevant subjects at SPM level in order to take these subjects for your Australian Matriculation.

What is your education pathway if you study Australian Matriculation?

To study Australian Matriculation, you will need to have an SPM qualification or equivalent.

Australian Matriculation courses in Malaysia are usually 10 to 12 months long, although some students take a 15-month course.

After completing your Australian Matriculation, you can proceed to pursue your degree at a university, either overseas or locally.

What are the advantages of Australian Matriculation?

Here are some of the top advantages of studying Australian Matriculation:

  • Widely recognised by many universities abroad, as well as local private universities
  • Continuous assessment & independent learning approach will prepare you well for a degree in Australia
  • Flexibility to choose subjects from different streams (Arts and Science)
  • Progressive accumulation of marks throughout the course, which can be less stressful for some students
