Nope. They claim that they are a unit that takes in students to expose them to their courses and university life before actually going into uni. UPKIPT = Unit Pengambilan Khas Institusi Pengajian Tinggi

Never heard of this UPKIPT, from what I checked online.
Looks like a scamming since UPKIPT do not know who you are. You are required to send them personal details.
This not make sense, and the confirmation sms is to those random phone no.

Please ignore this kind of things, really never heard before. Malaysia is dangerous nowadays.

No one need to be exposed to university life, since university life same as normal daily life like you live in Malaysia for so long. mad.gif No official website, 100% suspicious.
p/s: I'm university grad, so I can tell you about this "university life".

Dont worry. Its not scam. They represent college such as ICAN, CITY-U to endorse students into the college/uni. Upkipt will organise roadshow for students intake. U can call the uni/college directly if want confirmation

the link above will show u a circular (dated 16 january 2014, just last week!) detailing about how UPKIPT is not endorsed by the ministry. so far, i conclude that UPKIPT is a third party intermediary that u dont need.

they tell u that by going under their programme, u will be "coached" about university life. i bet this is no more than a prolonged orientation programme. whatever it is, the cautionary statement from MoE in the link above should suffice to warn u to stay away from such programmes.
