Route to

Malaysia's Top Universities

Now You Have A Choice!

We at Uni Assist understand that parents will always want the best for their children especially in their educational journey. Making the right choice of programme based on the children's qualifications and interests, especially at the higher level, is most crucial in determining the next journey in their lives.


We are also aware that many students do not receive an offer through the application on UPUOnline and some have no choice but to accept a programme offer even though it is not of their choice and interest.


Based on our extensive experience and through strategic partnership with Malaysia's best universities, we now open an alternative opportunity known as the "Direct Channel" for students who meet the qualifications to continue their studies in the fields they are interested in.


Join those who have already made it to the best universities through the "Direct Channel". Your decisions now determine your future!.

Our Student Recruitment Specialist with extensive experience in university recruitment and admission will assist you throughout the journey to the programme and university of your choice.

Direct Channel to Public Universities

In addition to applying through UPU, post-secondary school leavers with SPM/STPM and equivalent qualifications are now have the opportunity to apply directly to public universities through alternative channel known as Direct Channel.

Some public universities are now open direct entry routes to the university through a special channel aimed at providing other alternatives, especially to students who do not get the programme of their choice due to stiff competition at UPU. However, the places allocated through this Direct Channel are very limited especially for popular programmes subject to those who make an early application and commitment.

The Direct Entry is a great optional route and a worthwhile investment as many students have already enjoyed the opportunity to pursue their dream programme with a brighter career prospects.


  • Be Prepared through "Backup Plan"
    In case that you do not get an offer of your preferred programme through  UPUOnline, you may still enrol for the programme of your choice through Direct  Channel. Students may apply simultaneously on both application channels, UPUOnline and Direct Channels. This is because applications through the "Direct Channel" are through a separate university system and do not affect student applications on UPUOnline.


  • Less Competition
    You will have greater chances to enrol for programme of your choice as you do not have to compete for the programme and university through UPU. This is mainly because there are many students who obtain high grades in SPM/ STPM will apply and compete for popular programmes as Medicine, Law, Engineering and others.


  • No "Merit" Consideration for Entry
    Unlike UPU, the application through the Direct Channel does not require the consideration of the applicant's merit points as a prerequisite for admission. Students only need to meet the minimum entry requirements of the programme as set by the respective university.

  • Opportunities for Other Qualifications that are not available on UPU
    Opening the way for applicants with IGCSE/ GCSE and GCE O-Level qualifications to apply to public universities.

  • Direct Offer from the University
    Applicants will receive an offer directly from the university if they meet the set admission requirements and will follow the same programme and enjoy all facilities as other students who receive an offer through UPU.

  • Opportunities for Futher Studies
    Students have the opportunity to continue their studies to the Bachelor's Degree level similar to the other mainstream students (with subsidized fees).
