In Kuala Lumpur and its environs, there are around 116 international schools, all of which provide a variety of curriculum from across the world, including American, Australian, and Canadian curricula, as well as the International Baccalaureate, to mention a few. The British curriculum, on the other hand, has long been one of the most popular and desired educational systems in Malaysia, both among parents and students.
Students in the British Curriculum, also known as the UK Curriculum or the National Curriculum of England and Wales, will sit for the IGCSE test at the age of 16 and many will go on to A-Levels following. By tailoring each student’s learning requirements, British schools prepare children intellectually, socially, and with the required skills to become tomorrow’s leaders.
The top universities in the United Kingdom are the top higher education destinations for students pursuing the British Curriculum. Many students desire to attend premier colleges in the United States, Canada, and Australia, while others choose institutions in East Asia, such as China, South Korea, and others.
In Malaysia, all British foreign schools endeavor to provide the finest education possible for all children. International bodies like as the Federation of British International Institutions in Asia (FOBISIA) and the Council of British International Schools (COBIS) have granted accreditation to these schools, which provides guidance on safety, teacher development, and other issues. The schools are also subjected to local accreditation by Malaysia’s Ministry of Education, and are graded using the Sistem Kualiti Institusi Pengajian Swasta, a quality assurance system for private educational institutions (SKIPS).
