Higher Opportunities for Private Education (Hope Foundation)

Higher Opportunities for Private Education

The HOPE programme is established to coordinate the placement of students who are unable to secure a place in local public universities in Malaysia (IPTA), into academic programmes offered by local private universities, university colleges and approved colleges (IPTS).

Students enrolled by the consortium are eligible to pay 'subsidised fees' arranged by the HOPE Programme, which is comparable to those charged by local universities.

The HOPE Programme is also able to introduce and recommend various funding and loans such as PTPTN loan by financial bodies and institutions to ensure that quality education is within reach of all Malaysian SPM, STPM and UEC school-leavers.


There will be three tiers of students under the scheme. They are:
a) Students with STPM qualification: to be eligible for degree courses offered by local private universities or university colleges, and/ or twinning degrees offered by private colleges in collaboration with their foreign university partners;
b) Students with SPM qualification: to be eligible for ‘niche programmes’ offered a diploma level or to pursue a foundation level course.
c) Malaysian students with UEC qualifications.
d) Current College/University students are not eligible to apply through HOPE Programme.

Students will have to meet the eligibility and entry requirements for each course. The minimum standards set are:
a) For STPM students: to obtain a Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) of at least 2.0, and at least 5 credit passes at SPM level;
b) For SPM students: to obtain at least 3 Credits at SPM.
c) For UEC students: to obtain qualifications equivalent to 3 credits at STPM.
There may be other criteria set, depending on the programme or course in question.
