THINGS TO CHECK BEFORE THE REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS

 

1. FINANCE RESOURCE


The university is not responsible for securing any financial support to fund your studies. Therefore, you are advised to do a financial plan to avoid any issue of payment of tuition fees in the future.  

 

2. ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY FOR INTERNATIONAL


International candidates who receive a provisional offer due to English language proficiency requirements must plan accordingly. Your planning will affect finances, visa, and any other issue related to the duration of the study. For example, if you choose to join our English programme, you need to spend at least one semester before starting with the academic programme and a separate tuition fee for the English programme is compulsory to pay.

 

3. HEALTH STATUS

All new students must demonstrate that they are in good health. Every new student must declare their health status through PutraENROLL during the registration process for screening purposes. The health status must be filled out truthfully, and any discrepancy discovered after the health examination will be deemed an offence for which action may be taken. Below is a list of diseases to be aware of, particularly for international students:

 

4. VISA REQUIREMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL 


The offer of admission does not come with a student pass. As an international candidate, you need to apply for a Visa Approval Letter (VAL) at least 4 months before the registration date. The VAL process may take 30–60 days.

However, due to the pandemic COVID-19 and current circumstances that limit international students from travelling to Malaysia, the university is allowed to accept new students via online registration by ensuring all of them have made an application with EMGS. When the application reaches 35% (IM14U-Document ready for submission to Immigration), EMGS will issue an EMGS Approval Letter. With an EMGS Approval Letter, new students from overseas can proceed with online registration (PutraENROLL) before travelling to Malaysia.

Candidates who have previously applied to any institution in Malaysia are required to cancel their application from the previous institution. Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) is unable to issue a student pass to an applicant unless that institution has made the cancellation with the EMGS. Applicants are also required to get an original release letter from the previous institution.

Candidates who are currently in Malaysia and holding a student, employment, dependent, or another pass from another institution, organization, or company should ensure that the existing pass period is shortened by the previous institution, organization, or company.
