About University of Selangor (UNISEL)

Established on 23rd August 1999, Universiti Selangor (UNISEL) stands as a pioneering institution in the Malaysian educational landscape. As the first state-owned and managed university in Selangor, its inception was driven by a noble aspiration: to elevate Selangor into a premier educational hub within the region. Despite its governmental backing, UNISEL is uniquely classified as a private university, owing to its distinct funding structure independent of Malaysian federal resources. This distinctive status underscores UNISEL's commitment to innovation and autonomy in higher education, setting it apart as a beacon of educational excellence.

UNISEL's founding principle reflects a visionary approach to education. By prioritizing state investment in higher learning, Selangor aimed not only to enrich its own academic landscape but also to catalyze broader regional development. This strategic foresight underscores the university's pivotal role in shaping the intellectual and socio-economic fabric of the region. UNISEL's emergence heralded a new era of educational progress, characterized by a commitment to excellence and inclusivity.
