Private Higher Educational Institutions (PHEIs)


Malaysians have access to quality, affordable higher education which is important and absolutely necessary for success in today's economy.

Regarded as a ticket to a high quality job, pursuing higher education is vital in the sense that education enables one to get a good job and earn a decent salary.

Higher education offers graduates more jobs to choose from than that are open to those who don't pursue higher education.

Higher education in Malaysia is provided by both public and private universities. Higher education providers in Malaysia can be grouped into two major categories.


Public higher education institutions consist of:

1- PUBLIC universities offering bachelor degrees and postgraduate programmes, with some offering programmes at diploma level and university foundation programmes; and,

2- POLYTECHNICS and community colleges offering certificate and diploma programmes.

There are altogether 20 public universities in Malaysia funded by government.


Private higher educational institutions, meanwhile, consist of:

1- PRIVATE universities;
2- PRIVATE university-colleges;
3- FOREIGN university branch campuses;
4- PRIVATE colleges.

There are 104 private higher learning institutions in Malaysia.


The tremendous growth of the Malaysian higher education sector over the last two decades has helped to put Malaysia on the international field in terms of providing higher education to the increasing number of both Malaysian and international students.

Greater access to higher education will result in a larger proportion of dynamic and progressive younger generation.


The well-structured higher education system in Malaysia is a key in enabling the government to achieve its aspirations to have a resilient nation, encourage the creation of a just society, maintain sustainable economic growth, develop global competitiveness, build a K-economy and innovative culture, strengthen human resource development and maintain sustainable environmental development.

In line with this, one of the top aims of the strategic plans for higher education is to ensure that Malaysians have access to quality higher education that is affordable.


Places in the public (government's) universities are very limited, many resort to continue their studies in private universities.
