Background Information   l    Topping Up Scheme
The following list of qualifications accredited for registration by the Board of Quantity Surveyors Malaysia (the Board) is applicable to full-time programmes conducted at the universities or colleges and by the awarding universities or colleges. The recognition is not applicable to degrees obtained through part-time studies, distance learning courses, twinning programmes, franchising arrangements and bridging schemes unless such programmes have been specifically accredited by the Board.
Qualifications obtained through part-time studies, distance learning programmes, twinning programmes, franchising arrangements, bridging schemes or any other form of advanced entry with exemptions from parts of the programme, or which do not require the students to undertake the entire programme at the awarding universities or colleges are to be so stated on the examination transcript / certificate / degree and made known to the Board at the time of application for registration.
The accreditation of QS degree programmes is subject to a review by the Board as and when deemed necessary. As a basic requirement for continued accreditation, universities or colleges shall submit to the Board information on any change in the name, structure, syllabi, contents, entry requirements, duration, etc. of the programme.
Holders of these qualifications must possess not less than five (5) credits in Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia or O Level examinations (or other equivalent qualifications) which shall include Mathematics. However, holders of the following qualifications may be exempted from this requirement:-
 
i)
matured students over the age of 25 (when entering the awarding universities) and who have a minimum of five years post-SPM supervised experience in quantity surveying work approved by the Board, or
 
ii)
matured students over the age of 21 (when entering the university, college or institution of higher learning for sub-professional qualifications) and who have a minimum of three years post-SPM experience in quantity surveying work approved by the Board
 
iii)
students who entered the degree programme at the awarding universities before 1997.
Qualifications obtained via Advanced Entry into BQSMs accredited programmes shall be subjected to the BQSMs Guidelines for Advanced Entry into BQSMs Accredited Degree Programmes which is available at the Board upon request.
The Board has decided that from January 2002, only students admitted to the quantity surveying courses on the current list of recognised qualifications will be eligible on graduation to apply for registration as a Registered Graduate Quantity Surveyor with the Board without any topping up requirement. Graduates from universities whose quantity surveying courses are not on the list will be required to sit and pass the following papers in the Institution of Surveyors Malaysia Direct Final Exam before being eligible to apply for registration as a Registered Graduate Quantity Surveyor with the Board:-
 
i)
Professional Practice 2
 
ii)
Measurement 3
 
ii)
Development Economics and Cost Value Engineering
This list will be updated from time to time. Intending students are strongly advised to check the current status with the Board or through our web-site before applying to or accepting offers from foreign universities for quantity surveying programme to avoid any problems later on when seeking to register with the Board. They should seek clarification or confirmation from the Board especially in respect of specific period or condition for accreditation of foreign universities.
