About AMU


From our humble inception in 2004, Asia Metropolitan University (AMU) has grown into a full-fledged university offering a wide range of programmes in Business, Accounting, ICT, Computer Sciences, Medical and Health Sciences from undergraduate to post-graduate levels.

Our university campus in Johor Bahru, the south of Peninsular Malaysia and our 2 affiliated college campuses in East Malaysia have been developed to provide the best in teaching technology and a conducive learning environment for our 3000 over students.

In line with our vision, the university is focused on producing trained, qualified and competent graduates to meet global demands. Our students come from diverse cultures and background and contribute significantly to societal growth.

These include graduates from our fully accredited 5-year MBBS degree, business graduates, skilled physiotherapists and trained nurses among others.

In light with the strategic aim of being a “Leadership University”, AMU is committed to preparing our graduates with the right skills and knowledge to enter the competitive and challenging workforce.

We have revolutionised our approach to ensure that the quality and delivery of our academic programmes are of the highest standards, in line with Malaysia’s Higher Education Blueprint and the National vision to develop a high-income economy that is sustainable and inclusive.

International Recognition

As a global university, AMU has been fully accredited by the UK-based Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges & Universities (ASIC) which is a mark of quality showing that the institution has reached international standards. The ASIC provides other institutional partners, students and parents with the assurance that AMU is on a solid footing.

This also allows the university to draw on its network partners’ experience and expertise in the planning and introduction of new and innovative programmes.

Our Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MMBS) programme is recognised by the Medical Council of India (MCI), Bangladesh Medical & Dental Council (BM&DC) and the Maldives Medical & Dental Council (MMDC). The recognition further cements the university’s international appeal as it seeks to be a reputable name in medical education not just in Malaysia but also regionally. AMU is ready to welcome more international students with the hope of diversifying students’ learning experience with a multiracial blend of culture and perspectives.
