INTI International College Penang (IICP) was established in March 2000 when INTI acquired International College Penang.
The college opened in 1986 in Bangunan Sim Lim, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur. At its inception, the college enrolled only 37 students, but within 18 months the student population exceeded 400. Enrolment continued to climb, and in 1989 the college was re-located to Jalan Sungai Besi, Kuala Lumpur.
Two years later, with more than 900 full-time students, the college established a permanent campus: INTI College Subang Jaya (ICSJ). In 1991 and 1996 INTI opened branch campuses in Kuching, Sarawak and Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
INTI College Malaysia (ICM), the main campus, was established on 82 acres (330,000 m2) of land in Putra Nilai in 1998.
In 2004, INTI continued to expand with three new associate campuses: Genting INTI International College, Metropolitan College and PJ College of Art & Design. To date, INTI has nine associate campuses in Malaysia.
On 4 September 2006, ICM received the Ministry of Higher Education's approval for upgrading to university college status. ICM became INTI University College (INTI-UC).
On 1 June, 2010, INTI-UC receives its upgrade to a full university from Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin.
In 2008, INTI merged with Laureate International Universities, becoming the first university in Malaysia, chosen to be Laureate International Education Group member.
