Why Choose UPM?

The location of UPM midway between the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) to the south and the Malaysia federal capital of Kuala Lumpur to the north, is ideal for an institution of learning and research. This allows for the privacy and quiet conducive for intellectual pursuits while at the same time places it within easy driving distance of urban attractions like shopping, entertainment and dining.

UPM is one of the premier universities in Malaysia and also one of the five leading research universities in the country. It is an established institution of higher learning, endowed with a legacy of knowledge that goes back more than three-quarters of a century, to 1931, when it began as a modest school of agriculture.

Today, UPM is one of the largest Malaysia public universities with a total student population of approximately 30,000. It is also a mini commonwealth of nations, with more than 3,000 international students from over 60 different countries.
