Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (‘TAR UC’), formerly known as Tunku Abdul Rahman College (‘TAR College’), is a premier institution of higher learning in Malaysia set up in 1969 by the Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA) to provide quality and affordable tertiary education to Malaysians.
TAR College was named after the first Prime Minister of Malaysia, Allahyarham YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj and set up to complement and supplement the efforts of the Malaysian Government to meet the current and future manpower needs of the nation.
It has since been successfully upgraded to University College on 2 May 2013, opening up a new vista for the University College to explore and to develop further in the sphere of academia.
The University College has its Main Campus in Kuala Lumpur and five branches in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang and Sabah respectively.
The University College offers more than 100 programmes at pre-university, Diploma and Degree levels.
