It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to First City University College (First City UC), formerly known as KBU International College, a premier private institution of higher learning in Malaysia. First City UC offers affordable quality programmes from pre-university to degree levels in partnership with UK universities.

Since its inception in 1990, KBU International College has an excellent track record in producing employable graduates and entrepreneurs. In recognition of our excellence in providing tertiary education, the Ministry of Higher Education elevated KBU to First City University College in 2015. First City UC will continue KBU’s proud tradition of providing the best learning experience for its students. The courses offered will continue to be industry relevant and will enable our graduates to be technology-ready in their chosen careers.

Quality education at First City UC is further enhanced by its complete compliance with the requirements of the Agensi Kelayakan Malaysia or Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Constant monitoring is also carried out by First City UC’s own Quality Assurance Department and its international university partners.

Aligned with our vision and mission to provide tertiary education and training of the highest quality to both local and international students, we set a high benchmark for our students to achieve excellence in their academic pursuit at the university college. Our track record of consistently producing a good number of first class honours graduates year after year speaks volumes for our quest for excellence and the high standard of our education and training provisions.

Set in a 13-acre serene campus in a prime, integrated residential and commercial district within the Bandar Utama township in the urban suburb of Kuala Lumpur, First City UC is well-poised to offer students an environment that is conducive for a holistic education. This will be further enhanced with the expected completion of the new campus expansion, which comprises a new academic block and en-suite air-conditioned student accommodation. This Phase II campus is equipped with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities that are needed for students to excel in their studies. Our in-campus sports and recreational facilities will also enable students to have a truly enriching and balanced education and campus experience.
