KOLEJ Yayasan UEM (KYUEM) was formed with the be­lief and un­der­stand­ing that higher ed­u­ca­tion is vi­tal for the progress of the na­tion.

It is owned by Yayasan UEM, and is part of the UEM Group. The col­lege of­fers A-Level pro­grammes via Cam­bridge In­ter­na­tional Ex­am­i­na­tions (CIE).

It pro­vides an in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised ed­u­ca­tion that en­ables stu­dents to ex­plore the fron­tiers of knowl­edge, mas­ter new tech­nolo­gies and pre­pare for the most pres­ti­gious uni­ver­si­ties in the world.

KYUEM was ranked third in South-East Asia for top A-Level schools af­ter Raf­fles In­sti­tu­tion and the Na­tional Ju­nior Col­lege of Sin­ga­pore.

Dur­ing the first half of this year, the num­ber of stu­dents is ap­prox­i­mately 480. By July, a ma­jor ac­com­mo­da­tion build­ing pro­gramme will en­sure up to 520 stu­dents can board in mod­ern, pur­pose-built vil­las.

KYUEM be­lieves that top achiev­ers are not born, but made. The col­lege mea­sures achieve­ments by the suc­cess rate of stu­dent place­ments in top-rank­ing uni­ver­si­ties in Bri­tain and other coun­tries.

It has also been named one of the top cen­tres for Cam­bridge A-Level Ex­am­i­na­tions, with a high per­cent­age of stu­dents con­sist- ently scor­ing at least three As. A stu­dent usu­ally needs three such grades to en­ter the best uni­ver­si­ties in Bri­tain.

KYUEM wel­comes tal­ented stu­dents with ex­cel­lent aca­demic records and out­stand­ing co-cur­ric­u­lar back­grounds to ap­ply for the July 2014 in­take.

The ap­pli­ca­tion opens from March 17 un­til May 31. The KYUEM Open Day will be held on March 1 and April 5 be­tween 10.15am and 2pm at its cam­pus in Lem­bah Beringin.
