GlobalNxt University is a pioneering academic institution that delivers degree programs through a unique online global classroom pedagogy. Bringing together over 75 distinguished faculty from across 17 countries and meticulously developed content, GlobalNxt sets a new quality standard for online education.

Courses currently offered by GlobalNxt University include Masters of Business Administration (MBA), Postgraduate Diploma of Business Administration and Masters of Science in Information Technology Management. The University also develops customised programs for organisations to meet their specific talent and skill development requirements.

Academic Heritage

GlobalNxt University achieved university status in 2012, a decade after U21Global was established as one of the first truly global online graduate schools.

Founded in 2001, U21Global began as a pioneering academic partnership that originally involved up to 21 prestigious universities internationally renowned for their teaching and research.  

Through a cutting-edge online learning model, U21Global was able to offer its students the same standard of high-quality programmes found at traditional world-class brick-and-mortar universities, but packaged and delivered in an innovative, technology-enhanced format.

Success came quickly. U21Global enrolled over 9,000 students across 72 countries and rapidly developed a distinguished reputation for high-quality, academically-rigorous, online programmes.

U21Globals achievements did not go unnoticed. At the invitation of the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia, to build a world-class, technology-enabled university, a new full-fledged university wasestablished.  The new university was named GlobalNxt University and adopted Malaysia as a hub for its global academic operations.

As a full, autonomous university in its own right, GlobalNxt University was accorded the rights to apply its pioneering online learning model to a much broader range of programmes and schools where it continues to raise the benchmark for online education with its emphasis on interactive pedagogy, advanced learning technology and use of high calibre, PhD-qualified global faculty.

GlobalNxt University is ideally placed to take forward U21Globals original vision of global, borderless education to the next level.  Indeed, the emergence of a full-fledged independent university in GlobalNxt University that was built upon U21Globals ground-breaking learning model represented an incredible decade of achievement for the founding universities.

Learning Innovation

GlobalNxt University offers high quality interactive education centered around a global learning community of students and professors, delivered in a flexible, online, community based format.

GlobalNxt University brings together professors from leading institutions across the world, who are passionate about learning innovation. The academic team at GlobalNxt University works relentlessly to track, design and integrate with our curriculum, the latest ideas in pedagogy.

Students are the Center of  a Learning Eco-System

In this environment, learning is acquired through opportunities for reflection, active construction of knowledge as well as by means of social interaction and collaboration.

At GlobalNxt University, careful and deliberate consideration is placed on the planning and designing of learning events so that the various sub-environments are integrated and blended for a meaningful and memorable learning experience.

The GlobalNxt learning philosophy is learner-centric; the students are at the centre of the learning eco-system. GlobalNxt provides a student with all the learning materials that they will need to develop themselves, and the necessary mentoring, guidance and support from top professors around the world.

Students are able to benefit from the best of traditional classroom education, but packaged and delivered in an innovative, technology-enabled format.

Interactive Peer Learning and Adaptive Learning

In a GlobalNxt classroom, one of the most powerful forms of learning is drawing from the views and experiences of others.

In this program, peer learning takes place via discussions on the online discussion board. Online discussion boards provide the space for learners to interact with professors and each other. There is an opportunity to reflect on course content and to debate the applicability of the concepts and theories covered in the course.

Adaptive learning delivers personalised learning solutions that evolve with the needs of the individual learner.

Based on the idea that every learner has different needs and intelligence level, adaptive learning systems develop and evolve based on the strengths and engagement levels of the learner. Adaptive learning models vary from the simple (segregating learners into interest based groups) to the sophisticated (drawing intelligent references about a learners knowledge gaps through content analysis). By fulfilling the needs of learners increasingly used to relevant, personalized information available at the tap of a screen, the system can greatly increase levels of engagement and assimilation.

Enabling companies to excel through talent transformation and executive education

GlobalNxt University has developed diverse partnerships with leading corporations to develop innovative, technology-enabled learning solutions. The Universitys Centre for Executive Education has a dedicated team of experts with a proven track-record of working with organisations to deliver effective learning solutions.

We partner with organisations to understand their learning needs and develop learning solutions and programs that specifically meet those needs. We customise every aspect of the learning solution such as the content, case-studies, program duration, projects and assessment. Any learning solution has to be aligned with the business goals of an organisation whether it is to develop specific skills, raise competency levels or develop leadership talent.

An organisation needs to ensure that the money spent on education generates a positive return on investment. This is done by ensuring the learning solution is aligned with business goals, and carefully monitoring the solution as it is delivered and rolled out. GlobalNxt provides a fully online learning solution for organisations or one that involves a blend of online and face-to-face workshops depending on their specific needs.


The University offers executive customised programmes for corporate bodies, professional certificate programmes and academic programmes ranging from Bachelors, Masters and PhD level.

UIM is a continuation of Kolej Islam Malaya (KIM) or better known as Muslim College established on 8th April 1955. Kolej Islam  Malaya was the first  tertiary institution set up in this country by the royal consent of the Council of Malay Rulers. It was borne from the reformist movement brought by Sheikh Tahir bin Jalaluddin, Syed Alwi bin Syed Sheikh al Hadi and the renowned Egyptian scholars, Sheikh Jamaluddin al-Afghani and Sheikh Muhammad Abduh.  As a result of relentless discussions in 1948, the Muslim leaders of Johore and Singapore had  sparked the idea to establish a tertiary institution in this region and the aspiration to establish KIM was well-received by the Malays in this country.

The result of consultations between Almarhum Sultan Abu Bakar Riayatuddin Almuadzam Shah, Sultan of Pahang Darul Makmur and Almarhum Sultan Selangor Darul Ehsan had encouraged the Council of Malay Rulers to make this historic decision to establish KIM. Following this, Baginda DYMM almarhum Tuanku Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah had given His royal consent to endow His palace at Jalan Kampung Jawa as the first campus of Kolej Islam Malaya.

On Friday the 8th of April 1955, KIM was officially opened by the DYMM Almarhum Tuanku Sultan Hisamuddin Alam Shah. In the year 1963, Al-Azhar University had accorded recognition to degrees awarded by KIM as equivalent to first degrees awarded by Al-Azhar University and eligible to read further for master and doctoral degrees at that university and Cairo University.

In the year 1966, it was decided to move KIM to a new campus at Jalan Universiti, Petaling Jaya. The former campus of Kolej Islam at Kampong Jawa was leased to the Ministry of Education as the first Fully Residential Religious Secondary School in this country. In the year 1968, the late Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj as Prime Minister then, had announced in Parliament that Kolej Islam Malaya would be upgraded as the first Islamic university in South-east Asia. However, this aspiration was postponed to give way to the establishment of a national university, namely, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) in the year 1970 after which KIM would be absorbed into UKM as Faculty of Islamic Studies.

However, based on a special report submitted to the 222nd Conference of Malay Rulers, KIM has been given royal consent to proceed with the name Universiti Islam Malaysia (UIM). In 2011, The Malay Rulers consented the appointment of members of Islamic College Council to be the Council Members of the Islamic University Malaysia. Majlis Universiti Islam Malaysia (MUIM) started its operation  in the Academic Building of Institut Latihan Islam Malaysia in Sungai Merab Bangi, Selangor.

In 2013, a delegation headed by YBhg Tan Sri Dr. Mohd Yusof Noor, the chairman of MUIM, accompanied by YBhg Datuk Wira Dr. Ismail Ibrahim, YBhg Dato. Abdul Monir Yaacob, YBhg Dato Abd Manaf Hj Ahmad, YBhg Dato Othman Desa, Hj Mohd Puzi Dahman and other MUIM officers presented a paper on the establishment of the university at the Ministry of Higher Education. On 1st November 2013, Ministry of Higher Education officially approved the establishment of the Islamic University of Malaysia (UIM).

UIM is currently operating in Cyberjaya with the blessings and approval of the Ministry of Education. The first study sessions for Master and PhD programs commenced in September 2015.

Post Graduate programmes offered are:

- Master in Comparative Financial Studies
- Master in Comparative Science
- PhD in Comparative Science

IPTS berstatus Universiti Syarikat Milik Penuh Kerajaan (GLC)

Pada pertengahan 1990an, Kerajaan Malaysia menerusi Kementerian Pendidikan Malaysia (KPM) telah mula mengorak langkah untuk meliberalisasikan sektor pengajian tinggi di Malaysia dengan melibatkan  perkongsian pintar dan kerjasama sektor swasta untuk pembangunan modal insan dalam sektor2 industri yang kritikal. Oleh itu, bagi merealisasikan pelan ini, maka Kerajaan Malaysia telah menjemput beberapa Syarikat Milik Kerajaan (GLC) seperti Petronas, Telekom Malaysia serta Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) untuk menubuhkan Universiti Swasta (IPTS) milik penuh syarikat2 berkenaan.

Selain itu, dengan ITM (Institut Teknologi Mara) yang dinaiktaraf kepada Universiti awam UiTM (IPTA) pada akhir 1990an menyaksikan pertukaran urustadbir MARA sebelum ini kepada urustadbir UiTM di bawah KPM. Ini menyebabkan MARA kehilangan institusi pengajiannya yang utama, malah menggerakkan usaha MARA untuk menggabungkan hampir kesemua institusi teknikal / profesional dibawah naungan MARA sebagai sebuah Universiti milik penuh MARA.

Dengan perkongsian pintar dan keperluan kemahiran dan profesional yang ditawarkan spesifik kepada industri oleh Syarikat Milik Kerajaan (GLC), industri pengajian tinggi swasta mengorak langkah dalam merevolusikan pengajian tinggi swasta di Malaysia. Bermula dari penubuhan Universiti Syarikat Milik Kerajaan, secara perlahan2, IPTS yang lain bersaing dalam menawarkan kursus pengajian lebih kompetitif dan berusaha menaiktaraf status kolej ke arah status penuh Universiti dan Kolej Universiti.

Secara umumnya Universiti Syarikat Milik Kerajaan (GLC) merupakan pilihan utama  bagi lepasan SPM / STPM selain IPTA kerana Universiti2 ini dianggap berprestij dan menawarkan kursus2 pengajian yang lebih relevan kepada kehendak pasaran kerja dan kebolehpasaran graduan yang amat tinggi dalam industri di sektor swasta.

Senarai Universiti Syarikat Milik Kerajaan (GLC)

  • Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP)
  • Universiti Multimedia (MMU)
  • Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN)
  • Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UNIKL)
  • Universiti Automotif Malaysia DRB-HICOM (DHU)

Private Universities owned by Government-Linked Companies (GLC)

In mid 1990s, Malaysia Government through Ministry of Education (MOE) was planning to liberalise the higher education sector in Malaysia via smart partnership and cooperation of private sector to develop human capital for the critical industrial sectors. To realised the plan, Malaysia Government invited several Government-Linked Companies (GLC) such as Petronas, Telekom Malaysia and Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) to set up private Universities owned by these companies.

In late 1990s, MARA loses its premier tertiary institution, ITM that was later upgraded to full Public University status into UiTM which was put directly under MOE. Following this event, MARA decided to combine most of all of its technical and professional institutions under one full fledged University owned wholly by MARA.

With the smart partnership and both the technical and professional needs offered specifically to the relevant industries by GLCs, private higher education industry started to revolutionise the higher education sector in Malaysia. With the setting up of these Private Universities owned by GLCs, slowly but surely, other private tertiary institutions started to compete in offering competitive academic courses and strive to upgrade their college status to full University and College University status.

Generally Private Universities owned by GLCs are amongst the top choice for the SPM / STPM school leavers apart from IPTA, mostly because these Universities are prestigious and offered academic courses more relevant to the job market and the higher employability and marketability of its graduates in various private sectors.

List of Private Universities owned by GLCs:

  • Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP)
  • Multimedia University (MMU)
  • Universiti Tenaga Nasional (UNITEN)
  • University of Kuala Lumpur (UNIKL)
  • DRB-HICOM University of Automotive Malaysia (DHU)

In 1996 the government of Malaysia was looking for methods to liberalise higher education in the nation, and to involve the private education sector in the development of this critical sector of human capital building. As such, the Ministry of Education was looking for an established private company to kick off the pilot project for university building. In October 1996, the then Telekom Malaysia was given the distinction by the Ministry of Education to set up the first private university in Malaysia. It was considered an honour to be given such trust by the government to spearhead the privatization of higher education. Being a natural extension of the existing ITTM campuses that TM already runs, TM accepted the invitation and Universiti Telekom was established in Melaka.

A year later, with the planning of the MSC underway, the government was once again looking for a suitable candidate to construct a university in the heart of the MSC. The idea behind this university is to emulate the Stanford-Silicon Valley example, where a centre of teaching and research catalyzed the development of high tech industry in the surrounding area. In March 1997, TM was again honoured when it was given the task to set up this university, to be known as Multimedia University. Considering that the telecommunications industry was becoming closely linked with developments in ICT, expansion into an education field directly related to ICT is a natural strategic decision.Then, on 25th January 2016, MMU launched its third campus in Educity , Iskandar Puteri, Johor which exclusively delivers MMU Cinematic Arts Programme.

Today, Multimedia University (MMU), aligned with its parent companys interests has been entrusted to contribute proactively towards nation building and towards making Malaysia a world-renowned centre of academic excellence in the areas of information technology and multimedia.


Producer of Desirables

As a university, MMUs main output is its graduates. What sets MMU apart, however, is that its graduates are among the most-sought after in the industry. Through surveys conducted by MMU as well as the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education, for many consecutive years, up to 97.4 per cent of MMU's graduates were able to secure employment within six months of completing their studies. This means that literally thousands of graduates were able to not only able to quickly secure dependable and lucrative sources of income, but were able to live the career of their dreams.

ICT and engineering powerhouse

From the moment it was conceptualized, MMU was intended to encapsulate the best practices of the best universities across the world. During the universitys formation, MMU leaders went to some of the top world universities, including MIT, Stanford, Carnegie Mellon, Harvard, and Tokyo University to learn first-hand what standards it had to aspire to. These best practices, combined with MMU's intense focus, have enabled MMU to become one of the leading universities in Malaysia, espeit is adamant to help shape people who will help make a better tomorrow.

Independently ranked and recognized

Despite MMUs relatively young age and size, its quality, curriculum and reputation is widely recognized. MMU has been listed in Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings by Subject 2016 & 2015 as a Top 200 University for Electrical and Electronics Engineering. In 2014, it had received the recognition for Computer Science & Information Systems; in 2012, for Communication and Media Studies. Also, two of MMUs engineering professors have been named Top Research Scientists Malaysia by the Academy of Sciences Malaysia.

Wealth of cultures and nationalities

MMU hosts about 1,500 international students from more than 60 countries. Through its Student Affairs Division, the university actively supports cultural sharing activities between all races and nationalities. Regardless of where you come from, in MMU you will find a place for yourself.

Programme Approval, Accreditation and Recognition

A degree from MMU is approved and accredited by various bodies in Malaysia such as Ministry of Education, Malaysian Qualifications Agency, Public Service Department and multiple professional bodies. As the first private university approved by the Malaysian government, it adheres to the requirements to the highest degree, and its thoughtfully-curated courses and programmes are a testament to MMU's commitment.

Partnership with World's Best Recognition

With collaborations with major ICT players such as Nokia, Intel, Microsoft, Cisco and Motorola, MMU makes sure that students are familiar with the best and latest technologies in support of the learning activities.

IPTS berstatus Universiti Swasta Siri 1

Apabila Universiti Swasta  Syarikat Milik Kerajaan (GLC) ditubuhkan di bawah akta IPTS pada akhir 1990an, kebanyakan institusi pengajian tinggi swasta (IPTS) mula mempertingkatkan kualiti dan mutu program masing2 agar dapat bersaing dalam pasaran pengajian tinggi.

Dengan menumpukan pada program2 pengajian berdaya saing dan relevan dengan industri, IPTS dengan kerjasama KPM mula mengenalpasti potensi industri pengajian tinggi termasuk kebolehpasaran IPTS kepada penuntut dalam dan luar negara. Peningkatan taraf kemudahan fasiliti, keupayaan menawarkan pengajian siswazah hingga ke pasca Siswazah (Master / PhD) membolehkan penubuhan IPTS berstatus Universiti Swasta dan ada juga IPTS bertaraf Kolej Universiti dinaiktaraf kepada Universiti Swasta.

Secara umumnya, Universiti Swasta memberi peluang kedua kepada lepasan SPM / STPM / STAM untuk melanjutkan pengajian ke peringkat pengajian Asasi (Foundation / Pra-U) hingga Diploma dan Ijazah Sarjana Muda. Universiti Swasta juga memberikan saingan sihat kepada IPTA dan sekaligus turut menjana ekonomi negara menerusi sektor industri pengajian tinggi serta melahirkan modal insan di sektor awam dan swasta.

Berikut adalah senarai Universiti Swasta bagi siri 1:

  • Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK)
  • Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR)
  • Universiti Antarabangsa UNITAR (UNITAR)
  • Universiti Sains & Teknologi Malaysia / Malaysia University of Science & Technology (MUST)
  • Universiti  Sains Komputer & Kejuruteraan Malaysia / University Malaysia of Computer Science & Engineering (UNIMY)

Private Universities Part 1

When Private Universities owned by GLCs were established in mid to late 1990s, most private institutions of higher learning started to improve upon quality of their programmes to remain relevant and competitive in the higher education market
.Focusing on programmes that are competitive & relevant to the industry, private colleges with the cooperation from MOE have had identifying potentials in  higher education industry especially in the marketability of private institutions of higher learning to both the local and international students. With the upgraded facilities combined with the ability to offer both undergraduate and postgraduate (Master / PhD) studies, enabled the setting up of several Private Universities and also several private University Colleges upgraded to full University status.

Generally, Private Universities offered second chances to SPM / STPM / STAM school leavers to continue their studies in Foundation / Pre-U level up to Diploma and Bachelor degree studies. Private Universities also provides healthy competition to Public Universities, thus also contribute to the economy of the country through higher education industry and producing human capital needed in both private and public sectors.  

List of Private Universities Part 1:

  • Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK)
  • Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR)
  • UNITAR International University (UNITAR)
  • Malaysia University of Science & Technology (MUST)
  • University Malaysia of Computer Science & Engineering (UNIMY)

The idea for the establishment of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak was mooted by Datuk Hassan Harun, the former chairman of KUB Malaysia Berhad. His strong interest and vast experience in the field of education materialised with the setting up of Maktab Adabi, in 1969. From this humble beginning, he continued to work on his vision for a bumiputra-owned private university.

With the advent of the IT age, Datuk Hassan incorporated the idea of an IT-based learning environment. His working paper was presented to the then Prime Minister of Malaysia, YAB. Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in 1996. After deliberating on the proposal, the Prime Minister gave his blessing. This proposal was then presented to YB. Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, who was then the Minister of Education.

Dato' Sri Mohd Najib and members of the late Tun Abdul Razak's family were agreeable to the establishment of the university and also the use of Tun Abdul Razak's name for the university. The name is significant as Tun Abdul Razak is also known as the Father of Development, and the university aspires to actively contribute to the development efforts of the nation.

Universiti Tun Abdul Razak was launched on the 21st of December, 1998. Its establishment was of great significance, as it is part of a larger national agenda to liberate and democratise education in the country.

On 1st March 2007 , Tun Abdul Razak Education Foundation (Yayasan PINTAR) acquired Universiti Tun Abdul Razak from KUB Malaysia Berhad.

On 9th October 2009 , Universiti Tun Abdul Razak was officially rebranded with the new acronym of UNIRAZAK and moved its headquarters from its Pintar Campus to CapSquare, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. It incorporated a new vision - "To become the leading institution in providing quality education and human capital in 'niche' areas among emerging economies". And reinvented itself as yet another pioneering university by developing 15 new innovative programmes in specialised areas such as professional accounting, taxation, insurance, retail & hypermarket, islamic financial planning, government & public policy, and many others. The existing programmes with 9,000 students remained at Pintar Campus in Petaling Jaya.

To further faciliate its new vision, on 1st August 2011 , UNIRAZAK Pintar Campus in Petaling Jaya was reestablished as a new entity and renamed as University of Management and Technology (UMTECH). UMTECH was assigned to managed the remaining 9,000 students of UNIRAZAK including its regional centres. On 22nd May 2012 , UMTECH was acquired by Nilam Suria Sdn. Bhd., in which Ekuinas (Ekuiti Nasional Malaysia Berhad) holds the majority stake, together with other private investors.  UMTECH was renamed as Unitar International University (UIU) on 18th October 2012 . As such, UNIRAZAK and UNITAR are two different institutions owned by unrelated stakeholders and offering non-related programmes of study


Universiti Tun Abdul Razak (UNIRAZAK) was established on 18 December 1997 as one of the first private universities in Malaysia. The university was named after Malaysia's second Prime Minister, the late YAB Tun Abdul Razak bin Dato' Hussein, and officially launched on 21 December 1998 by Tun Abdul Razak's eldest son, YAB Dato' Seri Mohd Najib bin Tun Abdul Razak, current Prime Minister of Malaysia and then Minister of Education. On 1 March 2007, Tun Abdul Razak Education Foundation (Yayasan PINTAR) acquired Universiti Tun Abdul Razak Sdn. Bhd. (owner of Universiti Tun Abdul Razak) from KUB Malaysia Berhad.

Since its inception, UNIRAZAK was among the first few private learning institutions in Malaysia to receive the SIRIM certification of ISO 9001:2000. Additionally, the University has been awarded the prestigious Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) status, which is a testament to the University's commitment to integrating technology and innovation in its teaching and learning techniques. UNIRAZAK has rapidly established itself as a premier centre for education in its efforts to produce competitive and capable graduates.

As of November 2015, UNIRAZAK has produced more than 20,000 alumni studying in undergraduate and postgraduate levels. All our academic programmes, which were developed through close consultation with the industry partners, public and private sector professionals, have been approved by the Malaysian Higher Education Ministry (MOHE) besides meeting the high standards set by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA).

UNIRAZAK has been acclaimed with numerous top awards from several Malaysia's leading award-based organisations. Within the first quarter of 2016, UNIRAZAK has already claimed the Export Outstanding Achievement Award for its contribution on Islamic banking and financial services for the year 2015. UNIRAZAK furthermore secured four-star rating from the Malaysia Research Assessment (MyRA) for the year 2014 - 2015.

UNIRAZAK is also the grand winner of Entrepreneurial Private University of the Year 2015. These plaudits 2012 Brand Laureate Awards: Best Brands in Education - Tertiary and Best Brands in Brand Management, and winner of the 'Quality College and University' from the 2nd International Standard Quality Award 2012. UNIRAZAK has also received the bronze award in the Putra Brand Awards 2011 (Education and Learning) category, Asia's Best B-School Award 2011 (from CMO Asia) and Sahabat Negara SME Award 2011 (from SME Recognition Awards 2011).

By continuously striving for distinction, the University is well on its way in becoming a significant educational institution in this country and the region. By delivering a world-class learning experience, UNIRAZAK aspires to be an institution that produces great thinkers who will become the accomplished leaders of tomorrow.

History of UTAR

The Establishment of UTAR began with the story of Kolej Tunku Abdul Rahman (KTAR). In 1964 the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) mooted the idea of setting up a college which was subsequently named after the first Prime Minister of Malaysia.

On 15 September 1972, YAB Dato' Hussein Onn, the then Minister of Education handed over the Instrument of Government to the College. A 191-acre piece of land in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur was allocated for the construction of the KTAR Campus.

Established in 2002 with 411 students, today, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) offers 110 programmes in fields including Accountancy, Actuarial Science, Agriculture, Arts, Business and Economics, Creative Industries and Design, Engineering and Built Environment, Information and Communication Technology, Life and Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Process Management, Medicine and Health Sciences, and Social Science and Education to more than 26,000 students in its nine faculties, three institutes and three centres located in Sungai Long and the main campus in Kampar, which was awarded the Pertubuhan Akitek Malaysia (Malaysian Institute of Architects) gold award in the education category in 2013. The employability of its 45,000 over graduates exceeds 97 percent within six months after graduation.

UTAR's efforts to excel in teaching and research to achieve its vision to be a global university of educational excellence with transformative societal impact have led it to be ranked as one of the top 300 universities in Asia in 2012 and 2013 by QS World University Rankings: Asia.

The Genesis of UTAR

On 5 July 2001, the Minister of Education, YB Tan Sri Musa Mohamad, invited the MCA to establish UTAR. A steering committee, chaired by YABhg Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik was formed to draw up a blueprint. A working committee led by YBhg Tan Sri Dr Ng Lay Swee, who was then the Principal of KTAR, prepared the working papers for the formation of the University. After months of meetings, deliberations and research, a framework emerged.

UTAR would comprise the following:

  • Faculty of Accountancy and Management
  • Faculty of Arts and Social Science
  • Faculty of Information & Communication Technology
  • Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science
  • Faculty of Medicine and Health Science
  • Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research
  • Centre for Extension Education

These five faculties, one institute and one centre would offer a comprehensive range of courses to meet the varied needs of students.

In fact, the establishment was timely with the recognition of the private education industry by the Government of Malaysia as a vital engine in stimulating and sustaining the growth of intellectual capital to meet the complex needs of an increasingly knowledge-based and innovation-driven economy.

The International Advisory Council

Guided by a vision to be a premier University for the advancement and dissemination of knowledge and expertise while emphasising  the holistic development of individuals for nation building, UTAR would have to achieve global standards. To serve as a platform for international affiliations, the International Advisory Council (IAC) consisting of eminent scholars and scientists was established. With this array of distinguished scholars and scientists, UTAR has since then been working towards building a strong international base for its research programmes and courses of studies. The historic inaugural meeting of the IAC chaired by Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik, then Chairman of UTAR Council, took place on 15 April 2002. It was indeed a meeting of keen minds with a myriad of vibrant ideas which provided an excellent start for the new University.

On 10 June 2002, UTAR welcomed its first intake of 411 students to its Petaling Jaya Campus. On 13 August 2002, YABhg Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad, then Prime Minister of Malaysia, officially launched UTAR. UTAR is thus officially established under the UTAR Education Foundation, a not-for-profit organisation.


Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR) was officially launched on 13 August 2002 as a not-for-profit private university providing affordable quality education. It is established under the UTAR Education Foundation and registered under the Malaysian Private Higher Educational Institutions Act 1996.

Guided by its vision to be a global university of educational excellence with transformative societal impact, UTAR is highly reputed as one of the fastest growing private higher education institutions in the country with phenomenal growth in all aspects of its development since its inception. With the first intake of only 411 students in its Petaling Jaya campus in 2002, the Universitys enrolment has now reached 26,000 students with campuses located in Kampar, Perak and Bandar Sungai Long, Selangor.

UTAR has graduated over 45,000 students since its inaugural convocation in 2005 and has made impressive strides in establishing a strong reputation as a comprehensive University with dedication to achieving excellence in teaching and research. The University currently offers more than 110 academic programmes from Foundation Studies to Bachelor's, Masters, and PhD degrees in the fields of Accounting, Business and Economics, Actuarial Science, Mathematics and Process Management, Agriculture and Food Science, Arts, Social Sciences and Education, Creative Industries and Design, Engineering and Built Environment, Information and Communication Technology, Life and Physical Sciences, and Medicine and Health Sciences.

UTAR Kampar Campus

UTARs main campus in Kampar was built on a 1300-acre piece of land donated by the Perak State Government. It is located in the growing township of Bandar Barat Kampar in Perak. Strategically located off the North-South highway, Kampar Campus is 190 km from Kuala Lumpur which is slightly over two hours away from the city by car. The Campus welcomed its first intake of students in May 2007.

Flanked by picturesque mountains, dotted with scenic lakes and located within a growing township, Kampar Campus offers a conducive and serene learning environment. This Campus features modern educational facilities and provides students with access to some of the latest learning technologies and research innovations. In addition, the Campus has facilities for sports such as football, basketball, volleyball, badminton, table tennis and a gymnasium. The spacious campus grounds are also ideal for jogging and cycling.

The following faculties are located in UTAR Kampar Campus:

  • Faculty of Arts and Social Science (FAS)
  • Faculty of Business and Finance (FBF)
  • Faculty of Engineering and Green Technology (FEGT)
  • Faculty of Information and Communication Technology (FICT)
  • Faculty of Science (FSc)
  • Centre for Foundation Studies (CFS Kampar)
  • Centre for Extension Education (CEE Kampar)
  • Institute of Chinese Studies (ICS Kampar)

The construction of Phase Two of the Kampar campus was completed in mid- 2012. With the completion of Phase Two, there are now 15 buildings in this lake-view campus including a grand hall with a seating capacity of 4,000, lecture theatres, tutorial rooms, a cafeteria, and the creation of more parking spaces.

Visitors to the panoramic UTAR Kampar Campus will unmistakably catch a glimpse of the exceptionally striking grand hall erected with architectural finesse on a 12,000-square metre plot of land. This palatial hall was built to commemorate UTAR's 10th anniversary and it was named after its illustrious founder, YABhg Tun Dr. Ling Liong Sik.

Another unique feature in Kampar Campus is a pair of bronze sculptures; one of Confucius and the other of Einstein. These two imposing sculptures are located in front of Heritage Hall and weigh a total of 580kg. These sculptures symbolise UTAR's belief in the universality of learning and thinking with the convergence of wisdoms from both the East and the West.

Amid the lush greenery and pristine lakes on campus is the UTAR Bird Sanctuary which is a heronry located on a small island in the middle of the lake on campus. There are about 5 species of herons breeding in this heronry. Besides these breeding birds, the campus is also surveyed to have an impressive 100 species of birds.

UTAR Sungai Long Campus

The Sungai Long Campus is located in Bandar Sungai Long, a main township in Kajang, Selangor. It is a purpose-built campus with surrounding facilities and services that support banking, housing, public transport, shopping and meals for the convenience of the students.
On 1 June 2015, UTAR relocated its campuses and offices from Setapak, Kuala Lumpur and Section 13 Petaling Jaya to its own campus in Sungai Long in a move to consolidate and strengthen the Universitys presence in the Klang Valley. This move to Sungai Long was one of the most defining moments in UTARs history as the University continues its next decade of excellence in education.

The Sungai Long Campus houses the Mary KUOK Pick Hoo Library and the following faculties, centres and institutes:

  • Faculty of Accountancy and Management (FAM)
  • Faculty of Medicine and Health Science (FMHS)
  • Faculty of Creative Industries (FCI)
  • Lee Kong Chian Faculty of Engineering and Science (LKC FES)
  • Institute of Chinese Studies (ICS)
  • Centre for Foundation Studies (CFS)
  • Centre for Extension Education (CEE)
  • Institute of Management and Leadership Development
  • Institute of Postgraduate Studies and Research
