Owned by 2 prestigious universities, the International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) was established based on a mutual partnership between the University of Malaya (UM) & the University of Wales, the UK in 2012. Since then, the University has experienced tremendous growth and remains committed to developing students who are ready to contribute to the next industrial revolution.
IUMW is one of the first universities in Malaysia to offer its programs as Dual Awards. Dual Awards programs are offered in collaboration with our partner university, the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD), UK. When students graduate, they will receive certification from both IUMW and UWTSD. This is a valuable opportunity for students to experience global education by spending a semester at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and obtain dual degrees from the UK and IUMW.
The IUMW campus is located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, beside Tunku Hill, and is surrounded by breathtaking lush greenery. Being near Putra KTM Station, PWTC LRT Station and a mall allow students to easily reach the campus with various public transportation options.
