Knowledge, the eternal Quest...

"We believe that planting the seeds of curiosity in students from the outset will inspire them to make knowledge-seeking their quest in life."

Quest International University (QIU) is a comprehensive, research-led private university in Ipoh. When QIU was launched in 2008, we had a goal in mind of being more than a degree mill.

Any university can provide its graduates with a degree and an education. But we’re here to produce graduates who change the game. Innovators who leave a legacy in their creations. Leaders who push for positive change. And above all, to produce good people—caring, responsible, respectable individuals who care for their fellow man and the world around them. They are the QIU legacy.

We have made our home in the beautiful state of Perak. Click here to see how we teach, our programmes and our facilities. Or just chat with us.


The University aspires to be a model research-led private university with global strategic linkages oriented to deliver quality programmes and interdisciplinary research of international standing.


  • To offer cutting-edge, market-driven undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in the Medical and Allied Health Sciences, Pure and Applied Sciences, Engineering, Computer Technology, Business and Management, and Social Sciences fields that impact the local and global knowledge-economy.
  • To promote research and innovation in frontier disciplinary and interdisciplinary areas of study in its various programmes with collaborative links to premier universities and centres of excellence.
  • To promote student-centred learning and impart holistic education through extracurricular activities and soft skills training, including clinical/industrial exposure and technopreneurship training.
  • To be an outward-looking university that works closely with all segments of community and industry and thereby serve as a geographical focal point for socio-economic development of the State.

The QIU experience is centred around our unique brand of experiential learning, across Foundation, Diploma, Bachelor’s Degree, Postgraduate and professional education programmes. From medicine to mechatronics engineering, pharmacy to psychology, or advertising to accounting, we believe that we’ve got the education pathway you need to achieve your dreams.
