The Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) programme was introduced in Methodist College Kuala Lumpur as one of the pre-university programmes in the year 2000. The School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) of Western Australia, on behalf of the Government of Western Australia, oversees the implementation of the AUSMAT programme according to SCSA guidelines.


The AUSMAT programme is well-structured with a balanced emphasis on coursework and external examinations. Academic scores are based on continuous school assessments and external examinations held in November. Successful students are awarded the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).


The WACE qualification is internationally recognised for admission into universities in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, United States, United Kingdom, Singapore and other foreign countries, as well as to local private institutions of higher learning. Methodist College Kuala Lumpur AUSMAT students have gone on to study medicine, engineering, biomedical science, computer science, commerce, mass communication and other specialisations. They have taken up rewarding and interesting career paths at home and abroad.

Welcome Message from the Head of Western Australian Matriculation

MCKL introduced the Western Australian Matriculation (AUSMAT) programme in the year 2000 as an alternative to A Levels or STPM. It is an affordable 11-month programme vetted by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) of Western Australia, and features a balanced emphasis on coursework and external examination.

The AUSMAT programme eschews the barrage of exams common to Malaysia’s education system in favour of continuous assessment through assignments, projects and exams. This system more closely reflects the learning process in university, and may very well be a welcome change of pace for those who prefer greater reward for consistent work rather than last-minute cramming.

Students may select a combination of four subjects from the Arts and Sciences, with English as a mandatory fifth subject. Scholarships are available to those with outstanding academic or co-curricular achievements in school. 

Successful graduates are awarded the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), which is recognised by universities both locally and around the world. MCKL has a strong record of sending graduates for further studies in top universities in the UK, USA, Germany, New Zealand and Australia, and the best among them have done so with the benefits of external scholarships such as the AMCHAM-MACEE Scholarship, Star Scholarship, ASTRO Scholarship and Security Commissions Scholarship.
