Company Description

ELS Malaysia: 30 Years & Beyond

The first ELS Malaysia centre was established in 1990 to provide quality English language programmes to students seeking better higher education opportunities and a brighter future. We have consistently championed our parent company's core values of integrity and compassion by nurturing academic excellence in the classroom and providing a supportive environment for our students.
Thanks to ELS Malaysia’s reliable academic standards, our top achievements to date are our long-standing partnership with Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM), a top-tier university in Malaysia and our endorsement by the National ELT Accreditation Scheme (NEAS) from Australia.
In 2012, UPM became the first university outside of the U.S. with an on-campus ELS centre. We have since helped more than 3,000 international students at UPM to fulfil the English requirement of their undergraduate or postgraduate programme.
With the NEAS endorsement in 2019, ELS Malaysia became the first internationally-accredited language institution in Malaysia. This accreditation is a recognition of our commitment towards quality in helping our students to achieve success.
In the years to come, we will continue to stay true to our purpose by leading the way in academic excellence and promoting the transformative power of English language and education.
