Our University

From our humble inception in 2004, Asia Metropolitan University (AMU) has grown into a full-fledged university offering a wide range of programmes which bears testimony to our impressive track record within the Malaysian private- higher education industry.

In line with the recent developments in the industry and within our institution, AMU is focused on producing trained, qualified, competent graduates for domestic and international markets in health sciences and various other disciplines. AMU aims to be “The University of Choice” within the local and global education landscape. Above all, we envision our students to come from diverse cultures and background who will be able to significantly contribute to
society and mankind.

Currently, AMU provides a comprehensive educational pathway beginning from foundation and diploma studies for post-secondary school certificate holders who can then move on to pursuing undergraduate studies. Beyond that AMU also offers a wide range of masters and doctoral degree programmes.

We have revolutionised our approach to ensure the quality and delivery of our academic programmes are of the highest standards, in line with Malaysia’s 2020 Vision to transform the nation into a high-income economy that is sustainable and inclusive.

Besides striving for continuous improvement, we have repositioned ourselves to meet the changing landscape of the Malaysian higher education industry
whereby we are committed to prepare our graduates with the right skills and
knowledge to enter the competitive and challenging workforce.
