Wawasan Open University (“WOU”) is Malaysia’s first private, not-for-profit and an open learning institution. It was mooted by Wawasan Education Foundation at the Gerakan National Delegates Conference in Penang way back in 1999 but the university was only established in June 2006.

WOU adopts an Open Distance Learning system where education is imparted to learners who may not be physically present on campus. With this philosophy, it allows students from various places, backgrounds and of different timing to study for their undergraduate degree at their own pace with the help of information technology.

Scholarships are available annually and applications are normally accepted till mid April. The scholarships will cover tuition fees only (up to a maximum of 9 credits) for Undergraduate programs or RM500 – Headstart Program. Results will usually be announced by end May.
