There are generally two types of learning centres in Malaysia — non-academic and academic. Majority of learning centres in Malaysia are privately owned and offer a variety of courses and classes. Academic learning centres focus on improving skills and proficiency in English, mathematics or science, or prepare for high-stakes exams like the IGCSE, IELTS or SAT. Non-academic learning centres include sports, music, martial arts, foreign languages, performing arts, robotics and coding, science, cooking, photography, yoga and speech, among others. Recently, a number of private academic learning centres have applied for international school licences.
