The the time of the older generation, getting into a university was a luxury that many had to be content with their General Certificate of Education (GCE).

Today, however, education is no longer a luxury but a given right, and a mere Penilaian Mengah Rengah (PMR) qualification is also not a bar to pursuing higher education.

In Wawasan Open University (WOU) a student with dedication and persistence could also obtain a diploma, degree or a higher certificate.

Student can enrol in WOU subject to an assessment of work experience or a diagnostic test to assess the academic aptitude, interest and suitability.
WOU also offered scholarships to those who needed financial assistance, as well as arranged for those facing difficulty in getting study loans from banks.
Affordable and accessible is what this university is all about. Student take as long as could be to complete a degree, student can take five years or even 10 years to complete.

WOU offers more than 11 undergraduate programmes to choose from.

Apart from regular university admission, WOU also admits students through its unique Open Entry admission system. Aspiring students who do not possess the necessary academic qualifications but have sufficient work experience are eligible to enroll through this unique open entry admission system.

Official Opening of Wawasan Open University (WOU)


WAWASAN Open University was officially launched on 22nd September 2006 by Higher Education Minister Datuk Mustapa Mohamed.

WOU is Malaysia second open university after Open University Malaysia (OUM). The university is located in Penang and funded by Wawasan Education Foundation, a tax-exempted entity established by Gerakan and supported by the Yeap Chor Ee Charitable and Endowment Trusts.

With the concept of open learning, higher education is not only for those aged 17 to 25 years but also those beyond 25.

The existence of two open universities in Malaysia encourage service providers to give wider opportunities for adults to continue their studies, which have been limited before.

There were about five million people in Malaysia who had passed the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia examination but could not continue their studies to university level. These include civil servants, teachers, police personnel and factory workers. Just one per cent of this will be 50,000 people. Thus two open universities may not be enough to provide the opportunities for higher education among this group.

When Wawasan Open University (WOU) opened its door on 22nd January 2007, the initial offering were 11 undergraduate degree programmes under three faculties -
the science and technology,
business administration and
foundation studies.   

Courses include
degrees in information systems,
computing science & artificial intelligence,
business information systems,
accounting and sales & marketing.

The cost of an undergraduate programme is about RM16,000. 


Industry Driven Curricular Design

All Wawasan Open University’s programs from diploma to doctorate level were designed by leading international and local experts with input from the key industry figures and organizations. At postgraduate level, the university offers the Commonwealth Executive Master of Business Administration and the Commonwealth Executive Master of Public Administration, jointly developed by subject experts from open universities across the Commonwealth in collaboration with the Vancouver based Commonwealth of Learning. It also offers two MBA programs with specializations in construction management and manufacturing and production management and Doctor and Masters of Philosophy to professionals in the respective industries.

Recognized and Accredited by Government

All WOU programs are approved by Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) and accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).

The Commonwealth Executive Master of Business Administration (CeMBA) program as well as the business and technology degree programs are recognized by the Public Service Department (JPA).

Online Distance Learning requires independent thinking and confidence, qualities international and local employers recognize in WOU students.

College and university graduates of today are expected to have a much stronger business understanding, soft skills and knowledge of leading edge technology such as cloud computing, Web 2.0 and beyond.

Knowledge driven organizations should invest in training their workforce. Workers themselves must also realize that increasing their skills base enhances their employability and hence promotion prospects.
