International Recognition of MUET

The Malaysian University English Test (MUET) is an English language proficiency test in Malaysia, mainly used for university admissions. All public universities and vast majority of private universities in Malaysia accept the MUET.

Starting from 2021, there is a significant change in format of the MUET, and the band scores of the MUET are aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

It is widely believed that the MUET is only recognised in Malaysia. In reality, the MUET does have international recognition as well, though that is quite limited for now. Here is a list of foreign universities that recognise and accept the MUET.
