UOWM was welcomed into UOW's global network in 2019.
Recognised for its long history of providing accessible, quality, private tertiary education to Malaysia and surrounding regions, UOWM was welcomed as part of UOW’s global network in September 2019.
With 36 years of experience, UOWM is a pioneer in private higher education in Malaysia. From 1983 to now, UOWM has grown in size, stature and network. From a single college campus in Damansara Jaya Kuala Lumpur, UOWM now has university college facilities at Utropolis, Glenmarie, a university college at Jalan Anson in the heart of Georgetown, Penang, and a fourth campus now in Batu Kawan, Penang. These highly respected colleges currently have more than 5,000 students, with capacity to expand to 13,000.
UOWM delivers vibrant, industry-focused programs at foundation, diploma, degree and masters levels. 99 exceptional programs are offered in business, communications, computing, creative arts, engineering, game development, hospitality, nursing, tourism and culinary arts. The introduction of new programs is based on high quality curricula, teaching and assessment standards, and a clear strategy to achieve full university status to offer locally accredited programs with Australian equivalency.
