Anyone who is interested in studying pure science or mathematics (or just wanna go overseas, mind you biggrin.gif ) and has fairly good result can try to apply for this scholarship. It is open for application from 31 December 2014 to 28 February 2015. It offers degree, master and Ph.D. Of course, it is hard to get. But worth a try though. biggrin.gif

*Pls be noted that you must get admission into top uni listed if wanna go overseas. Otherwise, local IPTA and IPTS will do.

You are right. I am not sure about Master and Ph.D applications but for degree level, Pure Sciences and Math are the only options.

Oh I know what you meant. MyBrainSc and MyBrain15 are separate scholarships. MyBrainSc (as in Science) offers from degree level until Ph.D for pure sciences and math while MyBrain15 is meant for Master and Ph.D studies in other field.

I applied through UCAS. This is the UK university application system which allows students from all over the world to pursue their studies abroad. You will need to write a personal statement before sending your application to the universities applied. And, you will have to pay RM130 for the application fees. Most importantly, you must meet the requirements of the course you are applying for in the particular university. biggrin.gif

Going to UK sounds like a good idea too. biggrin.gif How did you apply using matriculation results? I mean do they know about our local grading system? And did they require you to take extra tests like SAT which is necessary for US application?

No extra exam is taken smile.gif Once your application is sent out, they will ask for the transcripts of your academic qualifications. Don't worry, the most difficult part is writing a personal statement. The personal statement must impress them to get you accepted into their universities. PLEASE DO NOT PLAGIARIZE! They have a system to check the plagiarism. As for Asasi, you can e-mail the admission team of the particular university to know the minimum requirements of academic qualifications. Before I forget it, some unis will require you to take the IELTS exam to prove your English proficiency. The IELTS exam costs you about RM650 if you are really hoping to get enrolled into prestigious universities like University College London, Imperial College London or University of Edinburgh. Why not you apply for Australia universities?

This is a bond-contract with Kementerian Pelajaran Malaysia. You will be bonded with KPM for 5-7 years upon completion of your studies. The main purpose of this scholarship is to produce scientists in Malaysia. You can go to the academic or research line after your graduation.

I applied for MyBrain15 under MyMaster and my application was approved last week. Now, have to send all the original docs to their office @Putrajaya. After submitting the docs, does anyone know when the allowance will be credited/paid to the University? How long does it takes for them to release the payment?

There's no allowance for MyMaster.

You just need to submit your MyBrain offer letter to the treasury department of your university everytime you need to pay your fees.

So, instead of paying money to your university, what you need to do is to give them your MyBrain offer letter every semester.

With that letter, your university will seek money from MyBrain to pay your fees.

You will have to work locally but the choice is not confined to just being an educator. And yes you must apply for the universities by yourself.

I am not sure but it's better that you do. In the conditions it is written that you do not need to submit reference only if the universities u apply for already stated that you do not need to submit the reference.

Will kpt force you to work as a primary school teacher if there are space available

This is a good scholarship program but the perjanjian there is so ambiguous that they can do anything on us , I am a little bit scared though .
