UCSI University: 30 years and counting

UCSI University is a vibrant community of learning and scholarship. With more than 10,000 students from 80 different countries, the University stands out as a melting pot of diversity and learners will supplement their pursuit of knowledge with a keen sense of cultural appreciation – a vital trait in today’s borderless world. As one of Malaysia’s first private universities, UCSI University has long impacted the national higher education landscape and the University continues to do so with its wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

The University’s academic staff are at the forefront of their disciplines and their views are highly sought after on major issues; from business to political science. Many of our academics have extensive experience working overseas and some play advisory roles in public bodies and various committees. By bringing their experiences into the classroom, our academics cater to an exhilarating learning environment and learners will thrive as they balance academic mastery with industrial application.

UCSI University’s strong track record of university-industry engagement has attracted attention from the powers that be and the University is entrusted to reshape Malaysia’s tourism and hospitality industry through education. By leading the Malaysian Centre of Tourism and Hospitality Education – a consortium of Malaysia’s foremost education institutions – that endeavours to equip at least 50% of the industry’s workforce with a diploma or a degree by 2020, UCSI University stands in the nation’s service and that of the global community.

Building on its domestic standing as a preferred and trusted education provider, the University is also expanding its sphere of influence. Tie-ups with foreign universities, research institutes and leading multinational companies are constantly established, enhancing opportunities for students and staff in the areas of research and development, mobility programmes and career opportunities, among others.

While these developments are encouraging, the true story of the University is about its students. Many of our alumni have gone on to achieve great things in life – from business to science and the performing arts. Most remain in close contact and the University is gratified to play a role in grooming movers and shakers that define today’s – and tomorrow’s – world.

Since its inception in 1986, UCSI University has been committed to further the discovery and celebration of knowledge. The University’s commitment – and success – in undergraduate teaching is matched by its progress in research and the discovery of knowledge, making it a true hub of higher education. Seeking to open doors for students around the world, the University’s generous financial aid programme ensures that prodigious students from all economic backgrounds can afford a UCSI University education.
