THE In­ter­na­tional Univer­sity of MalayaWales (IUMW) is a Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency-ac­cred­ited univer­sity founded upon the col­lab­o­ra­tive ef­forts of the Univer­sity of Malaya (UM) and the Univer­sity of Wales, UK (UW).

It seeks to bring to­gether the finest academia from two con­ti­nents and lever­ages on the best of both worlds.

UM sig­nifices a true Malaysian legacy that has pro­duced some of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in the na­tion.

As the coun­try’s first univer­sity, it also has a rich his­tory in the land­scape of na­tional progress.

The re­cent world rank­ings have seen UM ranked among the top 120 uni­ver­si­ties in the world.

Mean­while, UW was founded in 1893 by the Royal Char­ter in the UK. The univer­sity has stood the test of time and pro­duced thou­sands of suc­cess­ful alumni, many of whom have made fun­da­men­tal con­tri­bu­tions to so­ci­ety.

To­day, UW re­mains one of the most mem­o­rable game-chang­ers for higher ed­u­ca­tion in the UK.

With Prince Charles as chan­cel­lor, the univer­sity is en­trenched in Welsh her­itage and is the epit­ome of a royal cul­ture.

As a her­itage sym­bol for both UM and UW, IUMW up­holds the qual­ity, el­e­gance and pres­tige that have been passed down from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion since its in­cep­tion.

In sol­i­dar­ity, the univer­sity moves for­ward with panache and verve by cul­ti­vat­ing the progress of gen­er­a­tions to come.

IUMW takes its cue from the im­mor­tal words of hu­man rights ac­tivist Mal­colm X: “Ed­u­ca­tion is the pass­port to the fu­ture, for to­mor­row be­longs to those who pre­pare for it to­day.”

IUMW is one of the first uni­ver­si­ties in Malaysia to of­fer an ed­u­ca­tional pack­age in true syn­ergy of the strong aca­demic forces in both Malaysia and the UK.

In just one ad­mis­sion, stu­dents can ob­tain two de­grees via the unique Dual Award pro­gramme and study at three uni­ver­si­ties: IUMW, UM and UW.

The Dual Award pro­gramme also paves the way for stu­dents to spend a se­mes­ter at UM and UW.

Its in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised de­grees pro­vide stu­dents with af­ford­able and qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion through vis­it­ing lec­tur­ers from UW and UM.

The IUMW ex­pe­ri­ence trans­forms stu­dents into life­long learn­ers with the knowl­edge, skills and con­fi­dence needed to con­quer the world.

IUMW is strate­gi­cally lo­cated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur and is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble by public trans­port. It is also min­utes away from world-class shop­ping com­plexes, sprawl­ing gar­dens and Malaysia’s finest at­trac­tions.

With a 14-acre (5.7ha) city cam­pus, IUMW of­fers a wide range of fa­cil­i­ties to sup­port stu­dents’ learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

A li­brary with a mas­sive ar­ray of ti­tles and on­line re­sources, a state-of-the-art au­di­to­rium, lec­ture halls, sem­i­nar rooms, a cafe­te­ria, and fully-equipped lab­o­ra­to­ries pro­vide stu­dents with ev­ery­thing they need for a well rounded ed­u­ca­tion.

Stu­dents will also have full ac­cess to UM, which is lo­cated 15 min­utes away. This means get­ting to tap into a world-class li­brary, on­line re­sources, hi-tech science labs and a wide range of sports fa­cil­i­ties.

Fur­ther­more, stu­dents will have ac­cess to the huge data­base of dig­i­tal re­sources owned by UW.

To learn more about IUMW, visit the booths dur­ing the up­com­ing Ed­u­ca­tion and Fur­ther Stud­ies Fair and the Fa­con Ed­u­ca­tion Fair later this month.

In ad­di­tion, drop by the IUMW cam­pus dur­ing its Open Days from April 6-8.

IUMW is one of the first uni­ver­si­ties in Malaysia to of­fer an ed­u­ca­tional pack­age in true syn­ergy of the strong aca­demic forces in Malaysia and the UK.

IUMW is lo­cated in the heart of Kuala Lumpur amid lush green­ery and a stun­ning back­drop of sky­scrapers.
