About Open University Malaysia (OUM)

Open University Malaysia (OUM) is the seventh private university in Malaysia. Although incorporated as a private university under the Private Higher Education Institutions Act 1996, the University leverages on the quality, prestige and capabilities of its strategic partners - a consortium of the 11 public universities. OUM adopts the motto "University for All" which is consistent with its philosophy on democratisation of education. This philosophy underlies the belief that education should be made available to all, regardless of time, place, age and social economic background. The open and distance learning (ODL) mode is specifically targeted at working adults who need to take care of their families as well as manage their careers while pursuing higher education.

The programmes in here cover a wide range of disciplines and all are accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Many of the the programmes are also offered by international universities to their students – further proof of the OUM quality.

OUM aims to be the Leading Provider of Flexible Learning and mission to widen access to quality education and provide lifelong learning opportunities by leveraging on technology, adopting flexible mode of learning, and providing a conducive and engaging learning environment at competitive and affordable cost.
