The efforts to realise a Malay language-based institution in all subjects bore fruit and resulted in The National University of Malaysia (UKM), in May 18, 1970, which opened it’s doors in Lembah Pantai Kuala Lumpur. The first batch of 192 undergraduates and 2 postgraduates registered at 3 faculties; Science, Arts and Islamic Studies. UKM has since seen tremendous growth in being able to provide an increasing number of places of learning for the people as well undertaking research in various disciplines and fields of study. It now has 13 faculties, a Graduate School of Business (GSB-UKM), as well as 16 research institutes of excellence in education. 42 years since it’s inception, UKM has produced 146 362 graduates. The university has since attracted global attention, as seen in the 2 937 students from 42 nations.
