OVERVIEW

Getting Started: Private Higher Education Institution (PHEI) Business in Malaysia

OVERVIEW
Higher education has become a vibrant business in Malaysia and it is of paramount importance to cultivate the creative and innovative intellectual human capitals that are needed for the future growth of the economy. Today, higher education is no longer the privilege of the wealthy few, but providing opportunities to all qualified students, both locally and internationally. The demand for education will rise as people or parents have higher aspirations for their childrens future. With the ever-growing demand for public higher education due to the democratisation of education, especially secondary education, public institutions faced serious challenges of operating within the constraints of their limited allocations given by the government. This had prompted the government to encourage private institutions to play a more active role in the higher education sector through various policy and regulatory amendments as well as in supporting these institutions to increase their capacity. As a result, these initiatives have strengthened and enhanced the private institutions role as higher education providers in Malaysia. The demand for private higher education in Malaysia will continue to rise due to rising population of high school leavers and rising costs of providing public higher education. In Malaysia, the private higher education institutions grew significantly. As of 31st October 2009, there were 20 private universities, 20 college universities, 5 branch campuses and 470 colleges in the country. This Guidebook will provide information for companies on how to comply and undergo the number of approvals involved in setting up private higher education institutions business. Generally, companies that wish to establish a private higher education institution such as university, college university or branch campus as well as college in Malaysia are required to submit appropriate application and obtain approval from the Ministry of Higher Education through the Private Higher Education Management Sector. It is hoped that this Guidebook will provide a comprehensive reference to the companies that are interested to start a new private higher education institution business in this country.

STAGES OF APPROVALS IN STARTING THE PRIVATE HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS (PHEI) BUSINESS
On the assumption that the private higher education institution building is completed and ready to be occupied, a PHEI operator is required to apply a minimum of 36 approvals* and up to a maximum of 48 approvals, depending on the number of academic activities operator intends to provide in the PHEI. The 48 approvals can be categorised into 4 stages as follows: STAGE Stage 1 : Company/ PHEI Establishment Stage 2 : Pre-Operational Approvals Stage 3 : Operational Approval Stage 4 : Additional Approvals TOTAL NO. OF APPROVALS 9 26 1 12 48

Note: *Approvals include licences, permits, registrations and letters. Stage 1 to Stage 3 covers the minimum 36 approvals. Stage 4 covers 12 additional approvals that can be applied separately if the PHEI operator intends to include additional academic activities. Summary of approvals in all four (4) stages is shown in Diagram 1.
