Current students or former students of these two colleges have something to say?
I hope to know more, thank you.
I am currently a student from KYUEM. Hence my sources about KTJ might be a bit biased/unreliable but bear with me.

Similarities
- Boarding schools
- Significant number of expatriates (teachers)
- Excellent students, excellent staffs
- Both : far from civilisation
- Have a good system/department that process students' UCAS application

Differences
- KTJ more expensive (RM70k) while KYUEM costs you around RM50k for January intake
- KTJ, in terms of accommodation and food, much more better
- I believe KYUEM has more expats compared to KTJ
- KYUEM, January intake (18monthers) take AS and A2 level together in May/June, KTJ separately - AS in Oct/Nov and A2 in May/June
- KTJ, you need to wear uniforms, KYUEM, only formal clothings


In terms of preparing students to further their education overseas, moreover pre-eminent universities, I believe KYUEM has done a remarkable job. There are a lot of classes prepared by experienced teachers (ie. Engineering prep course by a teacher who holds a PhD from Cambridge; Law/History prep by our very own headmaster from Oxford) to polish those students who would like to apply to OxBridge or other top Unis.

KYUEM is a great place!
