THINGS TO CHECK BEFORE THE REGISTRATION OF NEW STUDENTS

 

1. FINANCE RESOURCE


The university is not responsible to secure 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.  

  • Click Tuition Fees for more information.
  • If your sponsoring body requests an official invoice of tuition fee, please email your offer letter to bursar.student_pg@upm.edu.my.

 

2. ENGLISH LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY (INTERNATIONAL ONLY)


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. VISA REQUIREMENT (INTERNATIONAL ONLY)


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

However, due to pandemic Covid-19 and current circumstances which 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. EMGS will issue an EMGS Approval Letter when the application reaches 35% (IM14U-Document ready for submission to Immigration). With EMGS Approval Letter, new students from overseas can proceed with online registration (PutraENROLL).

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 apply the student pass for 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/ company, please ensure that the existing pass period is shortened by the previous institution/ organization/ company.

 

PREPARING TO ENTER MALAYSIA

 

STEP 1: New students are advised to refer to the latest visa and travel advice from the Malaysian Government published on the EMGS website. https://visa.educationmalaysia.gov.my/guidelines/travel-authorisation-new-student.html

 

STEP 2: New students are also advised to refer to the latest learning and teaching modes which will be announced from time to time.

STEP 3: If the above things do not prevent you from travelling to Malaysia, you can apply for a Single Entry Visa (SEV) with e-VAL at the Malaysia Embassy/Consulate in your country.

 

STEP 4: You must enter Malaysia with SEV before the expiry date of the VAL. However, please do not enter Malaysia earlier than 7 days of the registration period. Otherwise, it may result in additional costs for visa and pass processing.

 

NOTE: If you choose to continue the online class in the particular semester and does not need to enter Malaysia, the EMGS Approval Letter will still be valid until the issuance of the eVAL and NO further action need to be taken.
