Who are we

The Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (MAPCU) was established on 18 March 1997. It stands as Malaysia’s most prestigious group of private colleges and universities with membership from major and well-established private colleges and universities. All members offer post secondary and / or tertiary level courses independently and/or in collaboration with established local and foreign institutions of higher learning.

MAPCU is recognised by the Ministry of Education, the National Accreditation Board, the Multimedia Development Corporation, the Ministry of Finance, and the Economic Planning Unit of the Prime Minister’s Department.

The MAPCU Scholarship Programme was launched by the then Minister of Education, Y.B. Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak in 1999. MAPCU member institutions have collectively offered over RM4 million worth of scholarships since its inception in 1999.
