Knowledge, the eternal Quest...
Quest International University Perak (QIU) (DU021(A)) is a private and comprehensive research-led university established in the Malaysian state of Perak under the Higher Educational Institutions Act 555 on June 12 2008. It is owned by Global Integrated Training Associates Sdn Bhd (formerly known as Blair Education Services Sdn Bhd), and the State Government of Perak has equity participation along with the QI Group.
As a private comprehensive university, students are our top priority. To engage the students and instil in them the hunger for knowledge, we believe in blending theory and practice in education. We believe that planting the seeds of curiosity in students from the outset will inspire them to make knowledge-seeking their quest in life.
We ensure that our programmes are industry-relevant using motivational teaching methods which are highly effective. QIU graduates will emerge from the University equipped with the skills that will make them ready for the job market and to continue their knowledge seeking quest.
At QIU, we focus not just on academics but also on giving students an ingrained love for the environment and the community. All QIU graduates will grow to become well-rounded citizens with an excellent education and a caring heart – not just for their fellow man, but for the environment and Earth as well.
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.
