Majlis Amanah Rakyat (MARA) scholarship is now available to Bumiputera students seeking to study Monash University’s Bachelor of Medicine or Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programme at its Sunway campus in Petaling Jaya. The sponsorship is under MARA’s Open Application Scheme.
Selection of students will be based on their pre-university results, performance in the semi-structured interview as well as the results of an aptitude test.
To meet the requirements, students must first score three principals in the STPM or A-Levels with an “A” in chemistry. Apart from that, those who score excellent results in other pre-university programmes such as Australian Matriculation, Australian Year 12, Monash University Foundation Year, Canadian Matriculation, Canadian International Matriculation Programme and International Baccalaureate will also be eligible for a MARA scholarship. Pre-requisite subjects include English or English as a Second Language (ESL) and chemistry.
Students whose pre-university qualifications do not include English or ESL must demonstrate their English language proficiency through the A-level or TOEFL English tests. Apart from offering MARA scholarship for medicine, MARA also offers MARA scholarships for other Monash degree courses including engineering, information technology, business and science.
