The MUFY programme is offered on a modular or semester basis. Each subject is divided into two units i.e. Unit 1 and Unit 2. In total, the programme offers twelve subjects in twenty-four units.
SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THE PROGRAMME
A student must pass a minimum of eight different units to complete MUFY successfully. At least six of the eight units must be derived from three subjects i.e. there must be at least three complete subjects. One of the three complete subjects must be English. The remaining two units can be derived from either the same subject or from different subjects.
STRUCTURE & MODE OF LEARNING
MUFY is a two-semester program which is available across multiple intakes and offered in two formats:
- The Standard intake, commencing in January, March and July. Students study 4 units in semester 1 and another 4 in semester 2.
- The Intensive intake, commencing in August. Students study 3 units in semester 1, and 5 units in semester 2.
The duration of each intake is outlined below:
|Standard intake||Semester 1||Semester 2|
|January||January - May||July - November|
|March||March - June||July - November|
|July||July - November||January - May|
|Intensive intake||Semester 1||Semester 2|
|August||August - November||January - May|
MUFY is delivered in a blended learning format which combines face-to-face instruction with self-directed learning delivered on an e-learning platform. To cope with this learning approach, students are advised to bring their own electronic device i.e. laptop or tablet.
ASSESSMENT AND EXAMINATIONS
Students are assessed through a mix of coursework (e.g. assignments, class tests, research projects, presentations) and final examinations. Coursework constitutes 70% of the total score while the remaining 30% is based on final examinations.
The MUFY programme scoring scale is determined as follows:
GRADE SCORE (%)
HD (High Distinction): 80 – 100
D (Distinction): 70 – 79
C (Credit): 60 – 69
P (Pass): 50 – 59
N (Fail): 0 – 49
CALCULATION OF THE MUFY SCORE
To arrive at the MUFY score, the passing marks obtained from all eight units are added up and then divided by eight. Bonus marks are awarded to students who complete nine or ten units in two semesters.

Reasons To Study MUFY
Pathway to a prestigious university
MUFY is a direct pathway to Monash University, a member of Australia’s Group of Eight universities recognised for excellence in research, teaching and scholarship.
Recognition in Australia and beyond
The MUFY qualification is also recognised by other Australian universities, universities in New Zealand and a growing number of established universities in the UK. This recognition extends to the branch campuses of foreign universities in Malaysia as well as private universities in the country.
Non-discipline specific foundation program
A discipline-specific foundation program such as a foundation in engineering prepares students specifically for undergraduate studies in engineering. On the other hand, a non-discipline specific program such as MUFY does not limit students’ options but offers them a broad pathway to any university course of their choice.
Semesterised study mode makes learning more manageable
MUFY students complete half of a subject (Unit 1) in semester one before undertaking the second half (Unit 2) in semester two. This way, students need not face the pressure of preparing for a single final examination at the end of the program.
Blended learning environment builds vital skills
MUFY is delivered on a blended learning format which combines face-to-face instruction with self-directed learning delivered on an e-learning platform. This enables students to develop vital learning skills to cope with university studies and even life beyond university.
Flexibility to improve university entry score
To improve their overall score, MUFY students can spend just one semester retaking selected units. That means in order to achieve better results, there is no need to repeat the entire program which a non-semesterised pre-university program would require.
Availability of scholarships
MUFY students studying at Sunway College can apply for a broad range of academic and extra-curricular scholarships made available to both domestic and international students. Similarly, Monash University offers scholarships to MUFY students who achieve excellent results.
My learning experience in Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) was invaluable and enjoyable. The programme provided a highly supportive learning atmosphere, and sharpened my personality to be more disciplined and independent. MUFY boosted my confidence and skills to adapt to the challenging environment in my Engineering Degree at Monash University. The invaluable experience continues to inspire me in my PhD studies.
Tan Wen Liang, MUFY Alumni
I can confidently say that Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY) has helped me establish a solid foundation in my studies. The programme has also helped me to develop a strong sense of discipline and high degree of self-motivation, as it requires you to diligently plan out your schedule carefully. Each class environment is enjoyable, educational and interactive. My overall experience in MUFY is totally invaluable and essential to my future success.
