University of Putra Malaysia


The University of Putra Malaysia is a public research institute in Malaysia primarily established to focus on Agricultural Sciences. It was first founded in 1931 as a small agriculture school and was letter recognised as a university in 1971. As for now, the University has expanded, thus offering studies in engineering, medicine and biotechnology. Spread over two campuses, the University offers a wide range of degrees at undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels.

UPM is Malaysia’s one of premier Research Universities with a prominent reputation for excellence in research and teaching. It is a multidisciplinary institute with the highest number of PhDs on its academic staff. This institute offers the finest learning experience and is highly committed to discovering knowledge. With a history of 80 years, the University of Putra Malaysia is strategically located within MSC (Multimedia Super Corridor), which is a government-designated zone designed to propel the country into a knowledge and information era. As one of Malaysia's largest institutes, the University plays a key role in contributing to the growth of skilled and learned human capital in the nation.


The University hosts about 24,000 students, both national and international. It accepts about 1,300 exchange students each and sends almost the same number of students overseas. The number of international students varies from 4,500 to 5,000.

This institute aims to produce well-balanced students in co-curricular activities and academic excellence. Because these both complement each other in the process of developing proactive, competitive and responsive graduates of excellence, to achieve this, the University of Putra Malaysia offers a range of clubs and associations operating across the University, residential colleges and faculties. These associations provide a supportive network and help new students settle into campus life, meet like-minded people, and develop friendships with them.

At UPM, there is an extensive sporting facility. This facility includes a sports hall, fully equipped gym, outdoor swimming pool, Astroturf pitch for hockey, under soil drainage football pitch, and tennis courts. 


Finding a proper residence can be pretty hectic. Still, in this case, the University offers on-campus accommodations to its students. Living at UPT can be a great experience as you enjoy your stay in the city while also focusing on your studies.

At the same time, you may also opt for off-campus residence, but we recommend you live on-campus, at least for the first year.
