UOW Malaysia is part of the University of Wollongong Australia’s global network, but has a long history of providing accessible, quality, tertiary education to Malaysia, and the surrounding regions, as it was previously known as KDU college and university colleges. UOW Global Enterprises, a wholly-owned subsidiary of University of Wollongong Australia, in September 2019 acquired the KDU institutions and following a process of transformation integrated them into the University of Wollongong Australia global network of campuses located in Australia, Dubai, Hong Kong, and now here in Malaysia.

Subsequently, in November 2019, the name of the college and university colleges were changed to reflect the stewardship of the University of Wollongong and they are now known as UOW Malaysia. UOW plans to develop the UOW Malaysia campuses at Glenmarie, George Town Penang, and Batu Kawan Penang into universities within the next five to seven years. Both university colleges offer a full spectrum of programs, within a contemporary learning environment utilizing state-of-the-art facilities, from Foundation through to Bachelor’s Degrees and Postgraduate programs. These include programs in Business, Communication, Creative Arts, Computing, Game Development, Engineering, Hospitality, Tourism, Culinary Arts, and Nursing.

The University of Wollongong is committed to becoming a pre-eminent provider of higher education in Malaysia. This commitment combines UOW’s internationally recognised teaching programs and personalised approach to students with its experience of operating for over 40 years in Malaysia, modern campuses and vibrant, industry-focused programs. UOW’s presence in Malaysia will benefit the wider region, by producing international student growth and industry-ready graduates.

Unique Selling Point

All programs offered by UOW Malaysia are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia through the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). This accreditation ensures that UOW Malaysia graduates are recognized throughout Malaysia, ASEAN, and internationally.

Our commitment to quality and continual self-evaluation is what helps us to uphold our reputation for academic excellence. Alongside our internal processes for quality assurance, UOW Malaysia is subject to the rigorous review processes of the MQA, to retain the high standards expected of Ministry licensed institutions.

In addition to local accreditation, programs are quality assured by University of Wollongong Australia, with representation of UOW senior academic staff on Academic Senate ensuring qualifications from UOW Malaysia are held in high esteem. As a mark of this quality assurance, the UOW Vice Chancellor endorses all program awards, to indicate that students have attained the required standard.

MQA accreditation validates UOW Malaysia institutional standards in a number of key areas, including:

Academic instruction and assessment Faculty and professional staff credentials Learning environment and resources Organizational governance Ongoing quality assurance Fiscal planning and responsibility.
