About Us

Student Testimonials

Azizullah Ghulam Akbar, Afghanistan

Bachelor of Computer Science (Hons)

Making the choice to study at IUMW was easy as I already had friends studying there. With their recommendation I decided to enroll here and I am happy to find that the campus has such a friendly environment. The lecturers are good at their subjects and use effective teaching methods. The programmes are really detailed and I am learning new things every day! Life in Kuala Lumpur is wonderful.


Madihah Binti Johar, Brunei

Foundation in Arts

Choosing to study in International University of Malaya-Wales has made me realize that we have a world of knowledge before us, just waiting to be pursued. I find studying at IUMW to be an enjoyable experience. The best part is the experienced and helpful lecturers from University Malaya and University of Wales, who provided so much help and support. They really helped me a lot! The classes were smaller and that made it easier for students to get to know each other.
