President's Welcome Message

President’s Welcome Message

Warmest welcome to you for browsing Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (‘TAR UC’) website!

Irrespective of whether you are here as a prospective student seeking quality tertiary education or someone who is curious to know more about TAR UC, I am certain this institution will offer you something that is uniquely TAR UC just as what I have gained since joining aboard as the new TAR UC President effective from 1 September 2018. What an honour it is to be a part of such a renowned institution with close to 50 years of excellent track record! Within the short journey I have with TAR UC, its strong sense of community driven by the shared mission and vision of pursuing knowledge and innovation certainly sets it apart from the rest.

TAR UC has a long, decorated history that dates back to almost 5 decades. Over the years, the University College evolved and innovated to stay at the forefront of education. Its reputation in upholding high academic standards and developing highly sought after graduates is a known fact that the industries and academia can attest. Further supporting this is the many awards and accolades conferred to TAR UC such as the Premier Digital Tech University status by the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (‘MDEC’) and the Ministry of Education as well as the highest recognition by global professional bodies, most notably the Platinum Approved Learning Partner by ACCA and the privilege of being the only institution in the world to run the Internally Assessed ACCA Fundamentals, amongst others.

Having said that, what makes this institution unique is its inspiring learning environment. With a student body of over 28,000 including nationalities from 22 countries across 6 campuses nationwide namely our Main Campus in Kuala Lumpur and 5 branch campuses in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang and Sabah, the atmosphere in the campus is full of vibrancy against the backdrop of lush green surroundings.

I welcome you to be part of this dynamic community in TAR UC and experience a truly holistic and empowering education. I am sure you will, just like me, find your journey here fulfilling in its own way and become a key contributor to the nation’s growth with the education you receive at TAR UC.

Prof Ir Dr Lee Sze Wei
