The People's University
Wawasan Open University (WOU) was established in 2006 with a unique and socially responsible objective – to provide working Malaysians access to quality higher education via Open Distance Learning (ODL) regardless of their educational, ethnic or socio-economic background. The University has spread its wings in September 2013 to offer full-time degree programmes for STPM school leavers and diploma holders at its Main Campus in Penang.
As the people’s university, WOU believes in providing education and lifelong learning opportunities to all people for self-enrichment and professional advancement. By opening the door to tertiary education, WOU ensures that more Malaysians are now able to pursue an affordable degree.
