About KDU University & College
Background of Institution
KDU, an institution that has over 32 years of history and experience, believes in providing quality wholesome and holistic education, and have traditionally been successful in preparing students for top universities all over the world.
Established in 1983, and a pioneer in Malaysian private education, KDU was one of the first private colleges in Malaysia to have its own purpose-built campus. It was the first education institution to introduce the concept of overseas twinning programmes to the country through its American Degree Program in 1983 and Business School in 1986.
The institution, as KDU College then, was awarded the university college status in August 2010 – a reflection of its offering of proprietary and twinning programmes, and the growth of its international student population.
In January 2015, 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. KDU University College offers a wide range of programmes at certificate, diploma, degree and master levels, and has introduced home-grown degree programmes that are at the forefront of growing industries, reflecting its promise of being a real-world university meeting real-world needs. These include hospitality, tourism and culinary arts, game development and computing, communications and creative arts, business, as well as engineering.
KDU College, situated at the Damansara Jaya campus, offers quality programmes with top universities around the world and continues to inspire its students to greater heights. Its close collaboration with top-ranking foreign university and education partners also ensures students of globally-recognised pre-university and bachelor degree qualifications that are equivalent to those awarded by the partners’ home campuses. KDU students thus have the best of both worlds at their doorstep.
KDU University College and KDU College are members of Paramount Education, a fully-integrated education services provider for primary, secondary, tertiary, and postgraduate level studies as well as executive and professional development programmes.
As one of the leading providers in the field of private tertiary education, KDU’s high standards of academic provision are well recognised by employers of various industries and universities worldwide. Among the qualified academic lecturers appointed, more than 80% have achieved a doctoral degree (PhD) and/or a master’s degree.
Apart from excellence in teaching and learning, KDU has undertaken research and development to enrich our academic capability and contribute to the body of knowledge. The Postgraduate and Research Centre is the focal point in developing research initiatives, administering research funding and promoting quality research among academics in KDU. It acts as a catalyst in encouraging KDU academics to develop their academic career as well as providing quality training to promote research excellence.
