About Open University Malaysia

Open University Malaysia or better known as OUM was established as the seventh private university in Malaysia on 10 August 2000. Although incorporated as a private university under the Private Higher Education Institution Act 1996, the University leverages on the quality, prestige and capabilities of its strategic partners - representing a consortium of the 11 public universities. OUM adopts the motto “University for All” which is consistent with its philosophy to democratise education. This philosophy underlines 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.
