Why study at UOW Malaysia

UOW Malaysia is part of the University of Wollongong Australia’s global network of campuses located in  Australia, Dubai, Hong Kong, and now here in Malaysia. UOW Malaysia were previously known as KDU college and university colleges. The names of the college and university colleges were altered in November 2019 to reflect the University of Wollongong's governance, and they are now known as UOW Malaysia .

Within the next five to seven years, UOW Malaysia campuses at Glenmarie, George Town Penang, and Batu Kawan Penang will be transformed into universities. Both university schools offer a comprehensive range of programmes, from foundation to bachelor's degrees and postgraduate programmes, in a modern learning environment with cutting-edge facilities. Hospitality, tourism, and culinary arts, as well as game creation and computing, communications, creative arts, business, engineering, and nursing, are among them.

It's ok.

The toilets are gross, these people don't know how to use a flush. It's way too cold, they can't control, they are so bold, the AC is cold. The 7 eleven is good, they have sunflower seeds.
