Welcome to OUM, the premier open and distance learning (ODL) institution in Malaysia!

Established in 2000, OUM is the country’s seventh private university and the only one owned by a consortium of Malaysia’s first 11 public universities, known as Multimedia Technology Enhancement Operations Sdn Bhd (METEOR).

This gives us the unique advantage of harnessing the prestige and expertise of our stakeholders. For learners, this means we have the resources to make our programmes the best they can be, with input and contribution from experts throughout the country.
