FACULTY OF EDUCATION
UNIVERSITI OF MALAYA

The University of Malaya, the first local university, was established in 1962 to meet the higher education needs of the country. A year and a half later, in June 1963, the School of Education was formed.

The school offered the postgraduate Diploma in Education to graduates who chose to enter the teaching profession. The school expanded rapidly and was upgraded to the status of faculty in July 1965. The Masters of Education (M.Ed) program was introduced for the first time two years later and this was followed by the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) programme in 1969.



Since its establishment, the Faculty of Education has successfully trained almost 20,000 graduates. From among them, more than 15,000 have graduated with the Diploma in Education, more than 1,000 with a Master degree and about 3,500 with a Bachelor in Education degree.

The Faculty is proactive in keeping pace with the ever-changing demands in the field of education. This includes the reappraisal of programs and courses, curriculum revisions and departmental restructuring to accommodate new changes when necessary.
