Introduction

TAR UC in a Nutshell

Tunku Abdul Rahman University College (‘TAR UC’) was established in 1969 as TAR College with the focus of providing tertiary education opportunities for young Malaysians regardless of race, class, and creed who were seeking quality education as well as meeting the rising demand for human capital from businesses and industries. The College started with a single campus in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur which is now the Main Campus. Subsequently, five branch campuses were established in Penang, Perak, Johor, Pahang, and Sabah.

TAR UC Main Campus in Kuala Lumpur sits on a piece of 186-acre land and the campus is an iconic landmark for its architectural feat in blending historical buildings with modern structures as well as the verdant greenery.
