UNIVERSITI MALAYA  : The first University of Malaysia has a 750-acre (309-hectare) campus in the southwest of Kuala Lumpur.

University of Malaya is formed by 2 historical colleges :
1) King Edward VII College of Medicine established in 1905 and
2) Raffles College established in 1929.

King College was specialized in medicine while Raffles College was excellent in education. When the two came together to form the University of Malaya in 8 October 1949, this was so that they might perform together an even greater service - to help lay the foundations of the new Malaysia by producing a generation of skilled and educated men.
