Study In Malaysia
City University Malaysia was founded by a group of scholars with extensive experience in local and international universities in April 1984. Registered with the Ministry of Higher Education under the former Education Act 1961, City University was known then as Petaling Jaya Community College (PJCC). It was established at a time when there was a growing awareness that it was necessary for the private sector to complement the national education effort.
PJCC was acquired by the Selia Group in 1998 as part of the company’s desire to be a responsible corporate citizen. It was rebranded as Unity College International (UCI). 4 years later, it was upgraded to a ‘University College’ status and was named City University College of Science and Technology. Under its new management, City University College extended its international education cooperation with universities from England, Scotland, Wales, Australia, United States, Indonesia, China and several Malaysian public universities to cater for the expanding demand for higher education.
Armed with a track record of 35 years of education excellence, the University College was awarded ‘University’ status in 2016, to be recognized today as CITY UNIVERSITY MALAYSIA.
