Pre-Spain Programme (Sponsored by MARA)

In July 2008, UniKL MSI launched a Foundation in Engineering for Spanish Universities programme under MARA sponsorship. This programme is using 100% Edexcel A-level system with an additional subject in Spanish. Students, who have completed 2 years of the programme at UniKL MSI are eligible for entrance into any field of engineering courses at three of the most established and prestigious universities in Spain. The universities are:
  1. Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya (Terrassa/Vilanova Campus)
  2. Universidad de Zaragoza
  3. Universidad de Sevilla
This Programme is fully sponsored by MARA under "Programme Ijazah Luar Negara (PILN)" especially for selected students who have achieved excellent results in Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM).

At UniKL MSI, the students need to sit for the GCE Advance Level Examination EDEXCEL (JCQ: Joint Council for Qualifications) for subjects such as Core Mathematics, Mechanics, Physics and Chemistry. The exam will consist of 2 stages:
  1. the Advance Subsidiary Level (AS)
  2. the  Advance Level (A2)
The main objective of this Programme is to ensure that the students are prepared for entry into tertiary education in various fields of engineering technology in Spain.

Pathway to further study to Spain

In Malaysia
During this 4 semester preparatory stage, in UniKL MSI, students will be exposed to the Spanish educational system through a customised Pre Spain Programme.

In Spain
After the 24 month preparatory in UniKL MSI, the students will enter the selected Universities in Spain. The Selection to enter Spanish University will be managed by Spain action body (UNED), which is similar to UPU in Malaysia.
