Our History
The College originated in September 1983 with the establishment of Kolej Yayasan Pelajaran MARA Kuantan. It is a premier community college that started off by offering bachelor twinning degree programmes, namely, American Associate Degree (AAD). The programme was recognised by more than 75 universities in the United States and New Zealand. The remarkable achievements of AAD then generated other international strategic collaborations with the Northern Consortium of United Kingdom (1988), Australian Consortium of Higher Education in Malaysia (1992) and British Consortium for Higher Education in Malaysia (1994). These success stories led to the College’s first professional programme in collaboration with the Accountancy and Business College, Dublin (now known as Dublin Business School) in 1993.

The commencement of these twinning programmes led to the opening of the College’s new campuses i.e. Kolej Yayasan Pelajaran MARA Bangi (1988), Kolej Yayasan Pelajaran MARA Kuala Lumpur (1992), and Kolej Yayasan Pelajaran MARA Kota Bharu (1994).

Besides international collaborations, the College has also established local affiliation programmes with first-rate public and private universities such as Universiti Teknologi MARA (1994), Universiti Putra Malaysia (1995), Universiti Malaya (1995), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (1996), Universiti Sains Malaysia (1996), Universiti Multimedia (1998), Universiti Utara Malaysia (1999) and Pusat Matrikulasi Kementerian Pendidikan (1999).

In its pursuit for excellence, KPTM acknowledges the importance of developing its own programmes or homegrown programmes. The College therefore took the lead in initiating its homegrown programmes in the fields of Computer Science, Information Technology, Accounting, Health Sciences, and Business Management at degree, diploma and certificate level.
