Master’s level courses
The courses which have number 4 as the first number in the course code are 4000-level Bachelor courses (MGM4149, for example). These courses can be acknowledged as Master’s level courses depending on your home university. If you currently study in a graduate program, the 4000-level courses will automatically be marked as Master courses in your UPM Transcript of Records.

All the courses are included in the official curriculum of the university and are held in English. Since the main teaching language at the university is English, degree students, both Malay and international, and other exchange students attend the same courses.
How to choose the courses
When you submit your application to us please choose the faculty that best matches your major studies. You can choose 2–6 courses per semester. You need to have suitable study background for the studies at the faculty you are applying to and you must choose at least 2-3 courses from this faculty. If you wish to choose courses from other faculties to complement your major, there is no strict study background requirement, especially for the courses from the Faculty of Economics and Management. Please select your courses carefully. Please note that UPM reserves rights to changes in the course offering. Since UPM offers no tailor made exchange program with specific courses, students should be prepared for possible course changes. Pick some extra courses when making your initial course selection, in case one of your choices isn’t available. In the beginning of the semester, after arriving at the destination, you can still make some changes to your course plan if needed.
When are the courses organized?
Check that the courses you would like to take are organized during the semester you wish to partake. Please note that autumn semester is semester 1 (September intake) and spring semester is semester 2 (February intake).
Please note that elective courses are not organized every semester. The list of elective courses is finalized a couple of months before the semester by the university.
For more information, please visit the faculties’ own homepages. More detailed course descriptions are not available for all courses in English at the moment.
There is a 80 % obligatory attendance. Failure to adhere to this requirement may lead to failing the course. Please note that the activities and excursions organized by your faculty or the international office are mandatory and may take place on weekends.
