This research is conducted to investigate the academic performance and progress of the pre-diploma students of Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) after continuing their studies at the Faculty of Hotel and Tourism Management (FHTM), UiTM. The performance of all pre-diploma students who had enrolled in UiTM for the year 2010 to 2017 were analyzed descriptively using Microsoft Excel. The enrolment data for this program and to the faculty were obtained from UiTM’s Centre for Strategic Planning and Information. The results for this study showed that a total of 3612 of pre-diploma students were successful in their pre-diploma program and managed to further their studies at the diploma level with the Faculty of Hotel and Tourism Management. Additionally, 369 students continued their study at bachelors’ degree level and another 5 at master’s level. Based on this study, their progress in academic performance showed that UiTM’s Pra Pendidikan Tinggi program has indeed succeeded in helping the students to further their studies at a higher level.
