In December 2019 the International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW) celebrated its 5th Convocation to celebrate the achievements of its students graduating with undergraduate and postgraduate awards.

IUMW is a new university established in 2013 in Kuala Lumpur as a collaboration between the University of Malaya and the University of Wales, two national universities coming together to broaden opportunities for students in Malaysia and elsewhere to access international higher education.

The 5th Convocation was attended by Professor Medwin Hughes and Professor Simon Haslett, who are Vice-Chancellor and Pro Vice-Chancellor (International and Enhancement) respectively, of both the University of Wales and the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD). They were kindly hosted by Mr Tay Kay Luan, the IUMW Vice-Chancellor, and his colleagues.

Professor Haslett said: "It was a privilege to participate in IUMW’s 5th Convocation to represent Wales in celebrating the success of the graduates with their families, friends and tutors, and it is very rewarding to see IUMW continuing to develop in offering transformational experiences to students from Malaysia and other countries."

Students from IUMW also have an opportunity to visit Wales, whilst they are studying their programmes, to undertake a period of study abroad at a UWTSD campus, which is proving popular with around 30 students visiting Wales each semester.
