Our Story UOW Malaysia KDU, an institution that has over 36 years of history and experience, believes in providing real world education to meet real world needs, and has traditionally, been successful in producing competent graduates and preparing students for top universities all over the world. Established in 1983, and a pioneer in Malaysian private education, UOW Malaysia KDU was one of the first private colleges in Malaysia to have its own purpose-built campus. UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College began its chapter when it opened its door to its first batch of students in 1991 and since then, it has grown by leaps and bounds. UOW Malaysia KDU College was then awarded the university college status in 2010 – a reflection of its quality programmes, and the growth of its international student population. In 2015, UOW Malaysia KDU University College moved to its new flagship campus at Utropolis, Glenmarie, with its state-of-the-art facilities and a contemporary teaching and learning environment. The 10-acre flagship campus features nine fully equipped 250-capacity lecture halls, 60 state-of-the-art classrooms, a multipurpose hall, computer labs, game showcase area and informal collaboration spaces. UOW Malaysia KDU has about 6,000 students, including international students, at three campuses with a fourth being built at Batu Kawan, Penang. Its campuses are UOW Malaysia KDU University College at Utropolis Glenmarie, UOW Malaysia KDU Penang University College, and UOW Malaysia KDU College, in Damansara Jaya. In November 2018, Paramount Corporation Berhad entered into a strategic partnership with University of Wollongong (UOW), to enhance its tertiary education business. With strong alignment between missions, values and course offerings, UOW Malaysia aims to pave the way of excellence by providing a high-quality educational experience to nurture graduates with a truly international outlook and to become future global leaders.
