UOW Malaysia KDU
Recognised for its long history of providing accessible, quality, private tertiary education to Malaysia and surrounding regions, KDU was welcomed as part of UOW’s global network in September 2019.
With 36 years of experience, KDU is a pioneer in private higher education in Malaysia. From 1983 to now, KDU has grown in size, stature and network. From a single college campus in Damansara Jaya Kuala Lumpur, UOWMKDU 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.
UOWMKDU 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.
