Preparatory English Course (PEC)

This programme is primarily designed for international students who are planning to study in an undergraduate degree programme at UTHM and need to meet the University’s English language requirement.

This programme aims to develop the English language proficiency of students with specific focus on ensuring academic survival at the university. The programme syllabus emphasizes on enhancing students’ four language skills, which are Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking as well as Grammar and Vocabulary skills, through outcome-based, student-centred approaches and the integration of classroom and online instruction, lectures and tutorials. In addition, students will also be required to conduct fieldwork in order to assimilate to the local culture and community as they embark on their university life at UTHM.

The programme has two intakes in February and July each year. It will run for 5 months and at the end of the course students will have to sit for the English Language Proficiency Test which consists of assessments on reading, writing, speaking, listening and grammar. If after a period of 5 months a student does not achieve the English language proficiency requirement of the University, remedial measures will be taken. However, if the requirement is still not met then probable cancelation of the conditional offer will be made.


The cost for the 5-month programme is RM 9,500.00 Payment must be made upon enrolment to the programme. Sponsored student needs to submit a valid sponsorship letter prior enrollment of the programme
