FIRST City University College has solidified its position as a leading institution in Malaysia's higher education sector by achieving a "Competitive" rating under the Integrated Rating of Malaysian Higher Education Institutions (Setara) by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia.

This prestigious recognition underscores the institution's steadfast commitment to academic excellence and innovative education, marking a significant milestone in its history.

Setara is a comprehensive assessment that evaluates higher education institutions based on various parameters, including teaching and learning, research, and institutional sustainability. 

Achieving a "Competitive" rating places First City University College among the elite educational institutions in Malaysia, highlighting its high standards and exceptional quality of education. 

First City University College's recent success at Setara is complemented by its recognition at the National Education and Learning Summit 2024 (NELS 2024), where it was conferred the Malaysian Education Excellence Award. 

Organised by the KSI Strategic Institute for Asia Pacific, in collaboration with the Malaysian Association of Private Colleges and Universities (MAPCU) and the National Association of Private Educational Institutions (NAPEI), NELS 2024 aimed to ignite critical conversations and forge collaborative pathways towards a future-proof education system in the country besides recognizing and celebrating the outstanding contributions of educational institutions and leaders in Malaysia.

First City University College has been a cornerstone of private higher education in Malaysia since its establishment in 1990.

Over the past three decades, the institution has built a reputation for delivering accessible and high-quality education to students from Malaysia and around the globe. 

The dual recognition of the Setara rating and the Malaysian Education Excellence Award highlights the institution's pivotal role in shaping Malaysia's educational landscape.

The significance of these accolades cannot be overstated. The "Competitive" rating from Setara reflects First City University College's comprehensive curriculum, innovative teaching methods, and the continuous efforts of its faculty and staff to nurture and develop the potential of its students. 

This recognition places the institution at the top tier of higher education institutions in Malaysia, reaffirming its commitment to providing an environment where students can excel both academically and personally.

Similarly, the Malaysian Education Excellence Award celebrates the institution's innovative approaches and high standards in education. 

It acknowledges the institution's ability to adapt and thrive in an ever-evolving educational environment, ensuring that its graduates are well-prepared to meet the demands of the global job market.

As First City University College continues to grow and evolve, it remains steadfast in its mission to provide accessible and high-quality education. 

The recent accolades from Setara and NELS 2024 reflect the hard work and dedication of the entire university college’s community, from faculty and staff to students and alumni.

The June & Sept/Oct 2024 intakes are now in progress.
