The aim of this study is to examine the development and the implementation of Malay medium policy in the Malaysia Education System. Fishman developed the concept of nationalist-nationist functions of language in nation-building. Since independence, the Malaysian leadership has believed that education is critical for national integration. It is generally believed that schools inculcate the child with values and facts, which are supportive of national ideology. The present study focuses on the process of development and the implementation of Malay medium policy in Malaysia. The performance of Malay-medium of Instruction universities (UKM, UTM and UPM) at post-graduate level was amazing. This studies using historical design. They had proved the ability to get Masters and Ph.D or degree in medic specialist from overseas and local universities. UKM had produced 272 theses at post graduate level since 1994 which 247 theses at master level and 25 Ph.D theses. Since 1995, UKM was producing about 200 theses at post-graduate level yearly. Usually there are thousands of Malay language theses from public universities in science after 1990. The thousands of theses in Malay language indirectly showed the ability of Malay language in education and its world class standard.
