Admissions and advice

Last updated: 18 January 2021


Applications for UM Courses starting in February 2021 and October 2021 are now open

You may check which course applications are available for submission by downloading our official List of Courses for February 2021 intake and October 2021. The dates and deadlines are applicable for different courses. Kindly make sure that course applications are submitted by the given deadline as indicated on our List of Courses. Some courses do not accept late applications. 

Applicants who intend to apply for an undergraduate UM course and will be presenting MATSEC qualifications following their examinations in 2021, should submit their application after they receive their result slip. Such applicants are required to apply for UM course using the username and password which will only be available once the MATSEC result slip is issued.

Important: Applicants who will be sitting for resit examinations in the September/October 2021 session should not wait until their resit results are issued, but apply for their preferred course before the first deadline as indicated on our list of courses. Such applicants will be allowed to attend their course provisionally until their resit results have been published and the outcome of the application is communicated to them.

All other applicants who will be awaiting their results, and/or will be sitting for resits during the September/October 2021 session, should also apply for their preferred course by the first deadline as indicated on our list of courses.


Amongst other duties, the Admissions & Records Office receives and evaluates the course applications and related documents of both local and international students. The Office of the Registrar issues the decision letter to all applicants.

UM makes a distinction between local and international admissions and each application is treated on its own merits. Generally, applicants in possession of qualifications that give access to recognised universities in their home country are accepted provided that these are of comparable standard to those required by UM and the course applied for does not require a special entry requirement.

The Office of the Registrar, also provides advice to prospective applicants through its Student Advisory Services (SAS). SAS aims to assist prospective and current students seeking advice about study route choices and operates in close liaison with other UM specialised service units, in particular those like the Admissions & Records Office.

Prospective students may also apply for a course at undergraduate and taught postgraduate level at UM if they have gone through a range of learning experiences which include formal, non-formal and informal education. This is known at UM as Recognition and Accreditation of Prior Learning (RPL).
