General Studies - School of Science

Students enrolled in Monash Malaysia, are required to successfully enrol in and complete some of the General Studies, as required by the Ministry. The General Studies units can expand students' knowledge and experience of Malaysia as well as to engage with issues relevant to Malaysia.

Before you graduate, Malaysian and International students will have to complete the U1 units. In addition to the U1 units, Bachelor Degree students must also complete one U2, one U3, and one U4 unit. At Monash University Malaysia, units within our various degrees have been recognized by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) as meeting the U2, U3 and U4 General Studies requirements. This can ensure students complete their course in timely manner and meet the General Studies unit requirements.
