SAM / AUSMAT Scholarships in Malaysia

1) What is Australian Matriculation?

Australian Matriculation programmes are comprised of South Australian Matriculation (SAM) and Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) also known as AUSMAT. SAM / AUSMAT are Pre-University programmes that are both based on the Australian education system. Both programmes are 10-12 months long with some up to 18 months depending on the institutions.

Both programmes have a combination of coursework and final exams which ultimately will lead to an Australian Year 12 qualification.
