About Us

Welcome to the Centre for Pre-University Studies (formerly the School of Pre-University Studies)

We have come a long way and we take pride in the fact that we were the first School to be established in TAR College (now TAR University College) in 1969 and that has served us well. As the Centre for Pre-University Studies under TAR University College, we are indeed privileged to have had the solid backing of the 52 illustrious years of academic excellence of TAR College and its strong tradition of providing quality and affordable education to young Malaysians.

From our humble beginnings as the pioneer School at TAR College, with a cohort of 764 students pursuing the Higher School Certificate, the Centre has become a destination of choice for pre university courses in Malaysia. The Centre now also offers its own home-grown Foundation in Science, Foundation in Arts, Foundation in Engineering, Foundation in Accounting, Foundation in Business, and Foundation in Computing. Our alumni strength is around 30,000 and still is growing strong with many having become and others on the way to becoming very successful in their chosen fields, be it in medicine, pharmacy or engineering, the sciences, business, accountancy, law, politics and the list stretches on.

The Foundation programmes are MQA-accredited recognized pathways to TAR UC's bachelor's degree programmes. The Foundation programme through its rigorous curriculum provides students with a solid foundation and requisite knowledge required for them to successfully cope with undergraduate studies. 

Here at TAR University College, while we insist on academic rigour, we also seek to enrich and challenge our students to develop their full potential. Given the right learning & teaching environment, a comprehensive range of physical support, dedicated & experienced teaching faculty and generous pastoral care & support, our students are holistically groomed for challenges beyond Foundation Studies. 

We warmly invite you to join us to achieve excellence Beyond Education!
