Fairview International School

Fairview International School is a Kuala Lumpur-based institution that was first established as an International Baccalaureate (IB) school. 1978 was the year it started operations. It used to have a campus in Ampang, but it relocated its headquarters to Wangsa Maju in Kuala Lumpur. 

It also has campuses in Subang Jaya in Selangor, Penang Island, and Johor Bahru in Malaysia. In 2014, the educational institution inaugurated its brand-new campus in Ipoh. There are around 4000 students attending Fairview International School across all sites, representing more than 55 different countries.

Fairview University College

On July 18, 2012, the Board of Directors of Fairview International School (FIS) received a formal invitation from the Minister of Higher Education to submit an application to establish a private higher education institution with university college status. This conclusion was reached on the basis of Fairview’s extensive experience and knowledge in administering the IB approach to education in Malaysia.

On August 21st, 2013, Fairview formally received agreement from IBO for the IBEC award for the upcoming programmes that are being run by UCF. UCF became officially recognised by the Ministry of Education as University College Fairview on October 21st, 2015. (UCF). On February 3, 2017, the Ministry of Education registered the Subang Campus for University College Fairview in a formal capacity.

UCF has entered into a partnership with the University of Malaya’s Institute of Educational Leadership, which is Malaysia’s oldest university. This university will serve as UCF’s Teaching & Learning Research Partner, which will enable UCF to realise its objective of assisting in the training of teachers in accordance with the standards established by International Teacher Regulatory Bodies. The IB University Directory lists UCF as one of the few universities in ASEAN that provide educational and leadership credentials. UCF is among the few institutions that offer teacher training.
