MOHE/MQA Approvals & Accreditation


UTAR is pleased to announce that all its programmes are approved by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and granted Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA)’s Provisional Accreditation. All UTAR's programmes due for accreditation have received Full Accreditation. For the rest of the programmes, when the time for the programme's accreditation arrives, UTAR is confident that the accreditation process will proceed just as smoothly and successfully as the other accredited programmes.

What does this mean?


Approval by MOHE and MQA Provisional Accreditation


All of UTAR's programmes are approved by MOHE before it is being conducted. This is a requirement under the Private Higher Educational Institutions (Conducting Course of Study) Regulations 1997. All of UTAR's programmes are also granted MQA Provisional Accreditation (PA) when it is conducted. Having Provisional Accreditation (PA) means that the programme has met the minimum MQA requirements to start conducting the programme.

MQA Full Accreditation/MQR/JPA Recognition:  


A Programmes is due for accreditation when the first cohort of students of the programme reaches its final trimester. This is when the accreditation panel of assessors assess the implementation of the programme and its compliance to MQA accreditation requirements. When a programme is fully accredited, it is recognised by MQA, the programme would be registered under the Malaysian Qualifications Register (MQR). All programmes under the MQR are recognised by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE), MQA and JPA. In addition, graduates with MQA recognised degrees can continue with their post-graduate studies in the IPTAs if they so choose to.
