The Kuala Lumpur Education City (KLEC) is being developed over the next 15-20 years as Malaysia's international education hub, showcasing some of the world's top universities.

Kuala Lumpur Education City (KLEC), launched in 2007, is still in development and aims to house both international and local universities, as well as primary and secondary schools in a 500-acre KLEC Academic Park.

The hub will offer education from University of Cambridge’s Judge Business School, Epsom College, and Universiti Sains Malaysia (and potentially other schools) to those in the region with an expected student population of nearly 30,000.

 

Kuala Lumpur Education City


The Kuala Lumpur Education City (KLEC) project was launched  in 2006 as a private-led project aimed at achieving Malaysia's vision to be a regional hub for higher education.

KLEC is envisioned as an international hub for education in a smart city development collocating :
1) International universities,
2) Local institutions of higher learning,
3) Secondary and primary teaching and learning facilities
4) Commercial and residential areas

In KLEC the universities, colleges and schools contribute to the social, economic, and cultural life of the city and its community.

Kuala Lumpur Education City includes three main development projects -

1) KLEC Academic Park (which includes the KLEC University Park, Medical Park and Research & Innovation Park),
2) KLEC Incubation Campus
3) KLEC City Campus.

The 500-acre KLEC Academic Park development is designed to cater for an expected student population of about 30,000 based on an international community reflective of the global aspirations of KLEC and the Government.

With its unique shared service model developed by KLEC, as well as promoting the academic cluster model between its partner institutions via sharing of resources, expertise, knowledge and experience, governed by a common KLEC Council, and leveraging on the individual strengths of its core anchor cluster partner while creating a global brand and platform for collaboration, KLEC and its partners hope to develop this hub as a showcase for globalizing education within the broader collaborative framework of an emerging, dynamic global education network.

As part of the initiative to develop a world-class education city, KLEC is currently embarking on a few various projects which includes the
1) Epsom College Malaysia and
2) University Sains Malaysia Global Campus.

USM Global Campus

The Higher Education is changing in the global view – demands for world-class education is growing especially in the Asia Pacific region, costs of education is increasing, and costs of providing education is also beginning to impact institutions of higher learning. Establishing new campuses requires huge amount of capital expenditure.

Public or government-funded universities cannot continue to fund its operations, expansion and research with grants from the government, and would require new income generating streams.

Education cities are solutions to these new issues related to higher education – sharing of services and reduction of capital expenditure, connected communities with international experience that benefits the community of students and teaching faculty, entry into bigger markets with lower financial risks.

The main objective of the Global Campus is to attract world-class international partners with the clusters acting as both academic and research collaboration platform offer undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in a non-competitive environment, with potential mutual recognition and synergistic collaboration in programme delivery and research partnerships.

The scope of international collaboration encompasses joint-academic programmes, faculty exchange, sharing of resources to be promoted to all cluster anchor institutions as well as potential research collaboration with other cluster anchors.

The cluster collaboration is aimed at creating an immersed academic and research-intense ecosystem with dynamic relationships that bring together the strengths of each anchor cluster institution (local and international), leveraging on each others brand and collectively, promoting a common global brand that is the cornerstone of an education hub for the region.
 


Bandar Enstek in Negeri Sembilan, right next to the busy Sepang F1 circuit, One of Malaysia’s biggest education hubs.

Some world-class partners in KLEC—among them Epsom College, a UK boarding school.

The construction of the British-style school’s 70- acre site started in early 2011, and opened its doors in 2012.

The chairman of the board of directors as well as the key promoter of the Education City is AirAsia Group CEO Tony Fernandes—a former Epsom College student himself—a

Bandar Enstek is actually quite a logical place for the Education City due to its proximity to the KLIA international airport and rather easy access to the capital city.

The location makes it a very convenient place to study, even for internationals. Malaysia is geographically very well located; it is not far from Asia’s big players like China and India.

Malaysia has for long been a regional education hub in Southeast Asia. 80–90,000 students are being educated in the country’s variety of colleges and universities.

Not surprisingly, the target groups of KLEC are students in other Asian countries as well as in the Middle East.

In many Malaysian universities the tuition fees are also significantly cheaper than in Europe or neighboring Singapore. Malaysia’s language policy is a great advantage for the international students coming to the country.

English is widely spoken here and it will also be the language of instruction in the schools and universities opening in the Education City.

KLEC will at first be focusing on specific degree programmes as well as short courses of executive education, mainly two and ten-day-long ones.

Organizing the short courses has already been discussed with certain international universities for 2011.

Klang Valley area already has a vast amount of different institutes of higher education.
The three important clusters: business, education and medicine are what the KLEC will focus on.

KL Education City is not the first education hub near the capital. Universities have in previous years concentrated on Cyberjaya, Shah Alam as well as Sunway, all a bit outside the Kuala Lumpur city centre.
