Malaysia’s  HELP University  was founded in 1986 to provide affordable quality educational opportunities for many Malaysians unable to access tertiary education at the very few local universities then and could not afford the high cost of studies abroad.

HELP became popular because of the distance learning centre for MBA studies and approved offshore delivery centre for undergraduate and postgraduate programmes of well-known UK and Australian universities such as The University of Hull, University of London LSE and Charles Sturt University.

It offers a wide and diverse range of programmes covering business, accounting and finance, psychology, law, management, economics, social sciences, IT, and the humanities at undergraduate and graduate levels. Positioned as an Analytics-driven Entrepreneurial University, HELP is one of only seven private Malaysian universities to be recognized as the nations' Premier Digital Tech Institutions.

HELP enjoys strong collaborative relationships with top universities across the world such as LSE, Imperial College London, Harvard, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Oxford, Cambridge, The University of Queensland and the Australian National University.

The ELM Graduate School has grown from being a reliable School to a postgraduate centre for HELP’s own MBA, and a spread of programmes that include Entrepreneurship, Project Management, Accounting and Finance, Economic Crime Management, and Human Resource Development, the DBA by coursework and research, research-based MPhil and PhD.

Having pioneered Psychology programmes (at Bachelor, Master and Doctoral levels) in Malaysia, HELP has established itself as the largest Psychology school in the country; possibly the largest private Psychology school in ASEAN. It offers the only APAC (Australian Psychology Accreditation Council)-accredited joint honours degree with Flinders University of Australia.

HELP's prestigious LLB programme is one of only three private LLB programmes recognized by the Malaysian Legal Profession Qualifying Board.

HELP University has two campuses: HELP Damansara Heights campus and HELP Subang 2 campus. It also delivers degree programmes offshore in six other Asian countries.

The main campus is situated in multiple blocks in Damansara Heights in the capital city, Kuala Lumpur (KL), centrally located in the Klang Valley.

All learning, teaching, and assessments are conducted in English.

HELP University is one of the first in Malaysia to introduce and deliver unbundled and standalone micro-credentials for up-skilling and re-skilling.
