OUM's pioneer full time college, Granada International College (GIC) renamed to International Open College effective November 2012

Open University Malaysia (OUM), pioneered Open and Distance Learning (ODL) in Malaysia 12 years ago.

OUM's full time college, Granada International College (GIC), providing pre-university to diploma level courses and has been operating in Bandar Baru Bangi since 2010.

In 2012, after two years, OUM has decided to rebrand the college to complement OUM's needs and serve as an intermediate institution for OUM.

Effective 19 Nov, 2012 , the college is to be called International Open College (IOC).

The rebranding is not only meant to provide a local touch to the name of the college, but also to connect IOC with OUM.

Unlike OUM, which is synonymous with a flexible education concept tailor-made for students who work part or full-time, IOC offers education modules designed for school leavers.

OUM, which has graduated more than 40,000 students and registered up to 120,000 students.

Like IOC, there are about 5,000 colleges throughout the nation offering diploma courses.

IOC courses are recognized by the Public Services Department (PSD) and accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA)

Like OUM, IOC also capitalizes on the power of the cyber realm - the Internet and ICT implements - in delivering classroom studies to its students.

OUM has vast experience and know-how in ODL oriented education and foresees no problem in extending this experience to the students of OIC.

IOC began operating with four diploma courses -
1) Management,
2) Human Resource Management,
3) Mass Communications and
4) Accounting
