UCSI is a leading comprehensive private university in Malaysia which contributes to the pursuit and expansion of knowledge. Despite its status as a young university – under 30 years – UCSI has always punched above its weight. It is ranked in the top 300 in the 2015 QS Asian University Rankings. It is also rated in Tier 5 – the highest rating accorded to universities in Malaysia – in the 2013 Rating System for Malaysia Higher Education Institutions.
Synonymous with graduate employability and industry relevance, UCSI runs what is virtually Malaysia’s largest university-industry network. Aptly christened Co-Op, the initiative sees UCSI working together with over 2,300 industry partners. Many of them stand out as the world’s best companies like Accenture, CIMB, Citibank, Deloitte, DHL, KPMG, HSBC, Maybank, Nestle, Standard Chartered, Petronas and PWC, among others.
This unique network opens doors for students and staff in the area of structured internship programmes and job opportunities. Overseas industry partnerships are becoming increasingly common and UCSI students have gone on to complete internships at leading companies in Britain, Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore, among others. UCSI also benefits from accreditation and recognition from numerous professional bodies, paving the way to fast-track careers and professional paper exemptions for students.
Academic diversity is one of UCSI’s strongest points. The University offers an eclectic range of industry-acclaimed programmes in medicine, pharmacy, engineering, applied science, business, IT, architecture, social science, music, tourism management, creative arts and design at its campuses in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kuala Terengganu. UCSI also stands out as the pioneer of biotechnology, food science and nutrition, aquaculture and music, among other fields, in Malaysia’s private higher education landscape.
The University’s excellent record in teaching and learning is increasingly complemented by its solid research output. Staff and students contribute greatly to this effort and the University constantly seeks new avenues to collaborate with industries, research institutes and world-class universities. This initiative has borne fruit. UCSI’s top medical and engineering students have been selected to pursue intercalated research programmes at Harvard and Imperial College London, respectively, and more developments are in the pipeline with collaborative partners in the Ivy League, Russell Group, Universitas 21 and Australia’s Group of Eight.
Internationalisation is another key focus of the University. Students from more than 80 countries study at UCSI, making the University a vibrant melting pot of culture and diversity. Exchange programmes abound and more strategic tie-ups are being forged with leading universities in France and Ireland. With these unique strengths and more, UCSI stands out as a University that offers an education few can, provides experiences others can’t and delivers life-defining outcomes for students everywhere.
