The New Era University College started as New Era College in 1998. The college was the outcome of many years of effort and unwavering support from the Chinese community. On 30 December 2016, New Era was upgraded to university college status by the Ministry of Higher Education. With that NEUC is now ready and able to play an even bigger role as a provider of quality community-orientated tertiary education to serve not only the needs of the community, but also that of the whole nation.
Our university college currently has nine faculties comprising of the Graduate School; Institute of International Education; Arts & Social Sciences; Computer Science and Information Computing Technology; Art and Design; Communication, Cinematic and Performing Arts; Accountancy, Management and Economics; and Health, Safety, Security and Environment, Institute of Ageing and Professional Care. Within these faculties are ten departments: Chinese Language & Literature, Education, Guidance & Counselling Psychology, Southeast Asian Studies, Business Studies, Finance & Accounting, Information Computing Technology, Art & Design, Drama & Visuals and Media Studies. The faculties offer Diploma as well as undergraduate and post-graduate degrees up to Master’s and PhD levels. To promote research on Chinese education in New Era UC, the Tan Lark Sye Institute was formed in 2015.
It is the hope and the vision of New Era University College that it would make a strong impact and presence not only in Malaysia but also globally as a reputable and leading university rooted in Chinese education.
