Duration : 2 Years


SQA Advanced Diplomas are widely recognized as the equivalent to the first two years of a three-year bachelor’s degree. Miba students can “top-up” their SQA qualifications by progressing directly to the third-year degree (top-up degree) offered by the Lincoln University College Malaysia. They can also continue on to complete a Master’s degree in 1215 months. This is a unique opportunity for Miba students to earn world-class qualifications in the shortest span of time, without travelling overseas for high quality education.
