Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional - PTPTN

It is now local university and private college registration time. For some parents which might not be able to provide full financial support to their university-going son or daughter, they might not be able to sleep well. But, not too worry, especially for those students who are offered to local university. Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) provides financial support for Malaysian to further their study. With PTPTN, students will get study loan which cover their course fee, accommodation and other expenses. In short, it is enough for a student to get his diploma or degree. Upon graduation, students will need to pay back the study loan on monthly basis at a low interest rate.

PTPTN is an excellent way to solve financial burden for both parents and students. For more information, please visit PTPTN website.


  1. Hi Yan, as far as I know, PTPTN is no longer waive the loan for students who is graduating with first class since 2008. I was graduated in 2007 and I was informed that we are the last batch of undergraduates that entitled for this benefit.

    Btw, this is really a informative blog. Appreciate your post.

  2. Hi Margaret, thank you for the correction :) I just checked from PTPTN website, the special exemption is only for those students whose PTPTN study loan approved before 1 July 2005. It's not applicable to study loan approved 1 July 2005 onwards. Thanks again for the info :)
