Research Programme

01-international 2

Application for research based degree is open throughout the year. These degrees require you to complete an individual research project and submit a dissertation. Interested applicant should first visit the website of the respective research groups to identify the potential supervisor. We encourage the applicants to communicate with the potential supervisor in the process of preparing the research proposal which is compulsory for the admission application.

Application shall be processed so that successful applicants can start their candidature in current academic semester. Applicants are encouraged to follow-up with the Institute of Postgraduate Study on the status of their application one month after submitting the application.

Duration of the programme:
Candidates may choose to enrol as a full time or part time student subject to the study programme offered by the faculty. However, international candidates may only register as full time students.

Entry requirement:
For Master by research programme, candidates should have a Bachelor Degree with honours (minimum 2.75/4.00) in the relevant area from recognized universities or equivalent professional qualifications that are recognized by the University Senate. Meanwhile, for the PhD programme, candidates should have a Master Degree in relevant studies from the University or Institute recognized by the University Senate or an equivalent professional qualification in a related field recognized by the Senate.
International students should have a good command of English equivalent to IELTS (Academic) Band 5.0, TOEFL* paper based 500 points. Meanwhile, local students do not need to provide proof of any examinations, i.e. MUET, IELTS, TOEFL. .

Fees of the programme:
The estimated total cost of studying in UMP (inclusive of tuition and living expenditure) for an 18 months Master degree candidature is MYR 35,000. The estimated total costs for 36 months doctoral candidature is about MYR 70,000. The bulk of this cost is living cost since the tuition fees charged for both Malaysian and International students are low. As such the actual total cost depends on candidates’ living styles and preferences. The details of the fees are shown in the following tables:
