Welcome to Open University Malaysia (OUM)!
As Malaysia’s premier open and distance learning institution, OUM has evolved from running academic programmes through a blended pedagogy – comprising face-to-face tutorials, e-learning, and self-managed learning – to our current approach that uses fully online learning.
For today’s learners, this means that almost every step of your study, from registration to exams, will take place online.

What Our Learners and Alumni Say
SURIA ABD JAMIL, SCHOOL INSPECTOR
I inspect schools and guide key stakeholders to ensure that a high standard of quality education is achieved and maintained in schools. As an OUM student, I met my supervisor 2-3 times a week to discuss my dissertation. I found that independent learning is not a lonely journey as many PhD students might say.
JALIAZFAR AHMED, R&D MANAGER
After dedicating 15 years of my life to the field of software development, I am elated to earn my degree in IT. Although I faced formidable challenges in balancing my work, family and studies, I’m deeply grateful for this transformative journey. I look forward to the promising career prospects that await me in the days ahead.
AL SAID UTOH KARAH, ASSISTANT REGISTRAR MAHKAMAH SYARIAH, KOTA KINABALU SABAH
Graduating with a bachelor's degree is a dream come true for me. I’m honoured to be an OUM product. I believe my degree provides added value for desirable career opportunities in the future. I strongly believe in the words "Dare to Dream Big" and "Unlock Your Unique Potential”.
DR FATHAIYA JAMALUDIN, FORMER HEAD OF E-LEARNING AND ONLINE EDUCATOR
I felt renewed vigour and determination when my concept paper was evaluated and I was told it was the first to receive an “A” grade in 5 years. Completing my doctorate has brought about a profound sense of accomplishment. I firmly believe that learning not only contributes to personal growth but also keeps my skills relevant and up to date.
DR MOHD MOHSHEN JAAMAT, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR OF STUDENT AFFAIRS, KOLEJ MATRIKULASI MELAKA
I had won the excellent service award three times but OUM helped me to understand that learning is an ongoing process for your entire life. There were much older students who didn’t need to achieve anything more in their career and yet they were studying. They showed me that you can learn as long as you have the desire to keep improving.
LEE SUANN, ACCOUNT MANAGER
Part-time studies along with working life is tough but thanks to OUM, I completed my MBA in 2 years and 4 months. Although it is unrelated to my profession, maybe one day I can become a lecturer so that I can teach the next generation.
SYED HUSSEIN SYED ABDUL RAHMAN, 27 ADMIN OFFICER, JOHOR BAHRU
Struggling to balance study and work taught me more about productivity and efficiency. I could apply the lessons I learned to my job. The guidance and encouragement I got from OUM gave me the platform and confidence to succeed in my studies. Today, my degree has given me generous employment recognition, added edge in promotion, and salary advances.
NARENDRAN THURARAJU, SAFETY SPECIALIST OLEON PORT KLANG
The schedule and course structure of my studies synced well with my workplace practices, such as Project Charter and HAZOP for Risk Assessments. It enabled me to study effectively and brainstorm at work. My degree helped me go from being a construction site safety supervisor to becoming a safety specialist at a manufacturing firm.
NURUL JANNAH ABD HADI, MADRASAH TEACHER
Reflecting on all the challenges I’ve encountered in juggling the responsibility of being a wife, mother, teacher and student, I can confidently say that they were worth it. Degrees are far more than a mere piece of paper, they are a powerful symbol of dedication, untapped potential, and the ability to effect positive change in the world.
