In promoting opportunities for all young Malaysians to grow their skills and qualifications, INTI International University has recently signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Politeknik Nilai, a leading Malaysian Polytechnic institution under the auspices of the Department of Polytechnic Education (DPPE), Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia. This agreement marks the start of their partnership which will enable students from Politeknik Nilai to further their studies into a Bachelor’s programme at INTI International University.


Upon immediate effect, students studying biotech programmes at Politeknik Nilai will receive credit exemptions when progressing into related degree programmes at INTI. In the coming months this opportunity will also be extended to students studying Business and Engineering programmes, and through the DPPE’s patronage, will automatically enable students from other polytechnics around the country to gain access to INTI’s established programmes.

In attendance at the signing ceremony was Tuan Haji Mohd Ghaus Bin Ab Kadir, the Deputy Director General for the DPPE and Lieutenant Colonel Tuan Haji Mohamad Amin bin Hamat, the Director for Politeknik Nilai.

Rohit Sharma, CEO of INTI International University & Colleges said, “This agreement provides an incredible opportunity for Malaysian students to pursue an education that is truly world class. Through our partnership with the Laureate Universities Network, students gain access to international resources and experiences that will give them an edge in their future careers. A part of this includes access to INTI’s Laureate English Language programme, which will help them improve their English language proficiency – a vital part to their as they enter the global workforce.”
