Background of Institution

Nilai University

Chronologically, Nilai University was established as Nilai College in 1998 and upgraded to a university college in 2007. Then, in 2012, The Ministry of Higher Education approved Nilai University College to be a full-fledged university.

Nilai University operates from a full-fledged university campus with various amenities and facilities. Teaching facilities such as lecture halls, labs, workshops and an aircraft hangar are within walking distance to the on-campus accommodation buildings as well as sporting facilities that include fields, courts and the Sports Focus Centre for Fencing.

Located in the lush, peaceful suburb of Putra Nilai, Nilai University is just a 15-minute drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport and 35 minutes from Kuala Lumpur City Centre. Sited on a 105- acre campus, it is just a stone throw away from its sister companies; Nilai International School, Nilai Springs Golf and Country Resort and the Nilai Springs Resort Hotel.

Prof. Dr Roslan Zainal Abidin

Vice Chancellor, Nilai University

Welcome to Nilai University.

Spreading across 105 acres of natural landscape, Nilai University is located within a conducive, yet easily accessed suburb of Nilai, Negeri Sembilan. Nilai University is a full-fledged university that offers an array of facilities for students to experience a balanced and wholesome learning environment which bridges the gap between their mental and physical development.

Fulfilling Nilai University’s motto -Enrichment for life, we are committed to educate and groom our students based on the four pillars of our blueprint; 1) specialised and advanced courses, 2) character development, 3) holistic development and, 4) industry internships through our partnerships and linkages with established corporations. These efforts will further equip and prepare students for local and overseas opportunities.

Also, Nilai University’s campus comprises a healthy mix of foreign and domestic students, with over 35 languages spoken. This diverse community plays a vital role for students to cultivate respect and acceptance towards diversity, which isn’t predominant in a homogenous environment.

Finally, as the Vice Chancellor of Nilai University, I envision Nilai University to be a research-led university known for its excellence in teaching, innovative research and invention; ultimately achieving Academic Networking and Internationalisation.

Sadaque S. Ghaznavi, Bangladesh

BSc. (Hons) Computing, Oxford Brookes University (3+0)

I enjoyed the luscious green campus, friendly lecturers, excellent academic facilities, friends from over 40 countries and the abundance of extracurricular activities. But, most importantly, Nilai UC was my home away from home. Each and every life is precious and all current and upcoming students of Nilai UC should not let it go to waste.

The OBU Computing programme has taught me the skills needed for today’s IT industry. Furthermore, I learned about how to manage larger tasks and projects methodically, as experienced during my involvement with the numerous projects in the Computing programme.

Al Muhanad Abdulbari Al-Kaladi, Qatar

Diploma in Electrical Engineering

I discovered Nilai UC through an agent in my country. I was impressed by the campus buildings and wide range of programmes offered. I feel comfortable studying here and intend to complete my studies entirely in Nilai UC. I think that my internationally recognised programme is challenging and lively. I have helpful lecturers and enjoy learning about circuits and how electricity moves. I like the campus atmosphere and the people here are open-minded.

The culture and system here have changed my life for the better. I am a whole new person because of this experience.

Joan Rahiman, Mauritius Island

B.A. (Hons) Accounting & Finance (3+0)

I preferred to study accounting and finance although there were also engineering and science courses here. I plan to complete my degree entirely in Nilai UC. The programme I am studying is challenging especially the group assignments which is something I have never done before. I am involved in the swimming club, Nilai African Students Association and athletic club. I am also a student counselor. Being involved in these extracurricular activities is challenging but I can also get to know more people.

I have learnt that the most important thing in a person’s life is respect for another person regardless of where one is from.

Mariam Chuma Kobelo, Tanzania

Diploma in Culinary Arts

Nilai UC is the place to be to pursue my higher education because of its pleasant environment, cultural mix and opportunities for me to learn more from others. The facilities that are most useful to me are the library and computer laboratories. In the library, I can get almost all books related to my fi eld of studies. The internet connection in the computer laboratory is very fast and this allows me to finish my assignments on time. Currently, I stay at the hall of residence on campus. I find the accommodation and living facilities quite convenient.

I have experienced a lot especially the cultural differences here upon arrival and learnt a lot from others. I now find myself an entirely new person and more helpful towards others.

Angela Bergren, America

B.A. (Hons) Accounting & Finance (3+0)

My favourite lecturer taught us about communication skills and made every class funny and enjoyable. He was also around to help out whenever we had questions. As a student counselor through the Department of Student Affairs, I am involved in helping new students. I love meeting new students and getting to hear about where they are from and their experiences. The student support services, especially the International Office, has been very helpful whenever I have problems and check on me from time to time.

Nilai UC is a whirlwind experience of people, diversity and cultures that has changed my view on life forever.

Studying in Malaysia and NIC has helped me hone my leadership skills. I have had the opportunity to be involved with various clubs and societies like the East African students Society, Nilai African Students Association, Omega Leo Club of Nilai College and currently International Students Society amongst others. Being an International college with more than 30 different countries has provided me with an invaluable experience in understanding other cultures, hence my horizon has been largely broadened and my learning experience greatly enriched. I am still learning but my most important lesson is “ we will appreciate each other more when we understand each other better.”
