University of Wollongong Graduate School General Information

Overview

University of Wollongong Graduate School (UOW) is a university that established its branch overseas in Malaysia for the first time by acquiring an existing Malaysian university.

The predecessor, KDU University, was one of Malaysia's largest education groups, alongside Sunway University and Taylor's University. However, it failed in raising the university's level and internationalization. Moreover, the founder of KDU University was aging and gave up on solving the problems independently. Therefore, they decided to sell it to the University of Wollongong in Australia, starting a new path at the end of 2019.

While the overseas university branch offers the same programs as the main campus and grants the same degrees as the main campus, the University of Wollongong Graduate School Malaysia does not currently grant degrees from the University of Wollongong in Australia due to these circumstances.

To develop into the University of Wollongong Graduate School (UOW) and improve the quality of education, there are considerations for establishing double degree programs where students can obtain a degree from the University of Wollongong in Australia.

At the same time, within five years, they aim to transform from University College to University.

Additionally, they are focusing on recruiting international students and aiming to become an international university.

This university is expected to evolve in the future!
