Studying in Malaysian Universities

University of Wollongong

University of Wollongong General Information

School Overview

The University of Wollongong (UOW) is the first university in Malaysia to establish a branch as an overseas university by acquiring an existing Malaysian university.

The predecessor, KDU University, is one of Malaysia's largest education groups, alongside Sunway University and Taylor's University. However, it failed to raise the university's level and internationalize. Furthermore, as its founder grew older and gave up on solving the problems on its own, it began a new path by selling itself to the Australian University of Wollongong at the end of 2019.

While overseas university branches offer the same programs and degrees as the main campus, the University of Wollongong Malaysia campus cannot currently grant degrees from the Australian University of Wollongong due to these circumstances.

The University of Wollongong (UOW) is considering the implementation of double-degree programs that would allow students to obtain degrees from the Australian University of Wollongong as it progresses in becoming a global university.

Simultaneously, within the next five years, it aims to transition from the current University College to a full-fledged University.

It is also committed to recruiting international students and pursuing internationalization. It is a university with high expectations for how it will evolve in the future!
