Education in Malaysia

The Systematic Education Group of Colleges operates eight Private Higher Educational Institutions. Established in 1977, Systematic's prime objective was to provide training to school leavers for their future career in Accounting, Business, Computing, Marketing, Management, Banking, Secretarial and Commerce and Industry. Malaysia is extremely conducive to study, and many Malaysian students have won prizes for outstanding academic results. With more than 23 years of experience, Systematic has produced a consistent flow of World and Malaysian prize-winners for the various professional courses, such as LCCI, ACCA, CIMA, ICSA, ABE and CIM. The catalyst for Systematic's success is the complete training system, that includes specially written materials including study packs, past year questions and answers, and test packs that are updated yearly.

Study in Malaysia

Malaysia is located in the tropics of Southeast Asia, straddling the South China Sea. Recent developments are putting Malaysia on the world map, as she focuses on becoming a knowledge-based economy. To develop world-class quality education and meet the demands and requirements of the new millennium, as well as to affirm the position of English as a second language, the Government has initiated major educational reforms by formulating new legislations on education. These were tabled in the Parliament from 1995 to1997, and covers all levels of education, from pre-school to higher tertiary education. Malaysia is indeed becoming a dynamic and exciting regional centre for education excellence. more details visit
