Quest International University Perak (QIUP)


QIUPQUEST INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY PERAK (QIUP) is a private and comprehensive research-led university set up in Perak under the Higher Educational Institutions Act 555. Established on 12 June 2008, QIUP is owned by Blair Education Services Sdn Bhd, in which the State Government of Perak has equity participation along with the QI Group.

At QIUP, we believe that planting the seeds of curiosity in students from the beginning will inspire them to make ‘knowledge-seeking’ their quest in life.

As a private comprehensive university, students are our top priority. To engage the students and instill in them the hunger of knowledge, we believe in blending theory and practice in education. We ensure that our programmes are industry-relevant and use motivational teaching methods which are highly effective. QIUP graduates will emerge from the University as florets leaving the plant, ready for the job market and ready to continue their quest to seek and learn.

At QIUP, we focus not just on academics but also on instilling students with the "green" concept, where love for the environment and the community is nurtured amongst them. All QIUP graduates will grow to become well-rounded citizens with an excellent education and a caring heart not just for other fellow humans but for the environment and Earth as well.
