Our Story

Our journey first began in 1993 when HELP International College of Technology (HICT) was set up in Klang to address the increase in demand for tertiary education amongst the community there. As the economy started progressing towards Kuala Lumpur, and most of the population moving to the capital, it was only wise for HICT to relocate to the city centre.

In May 2011, HELP College of Arts and Technology (HELPCAT) was established as a city college in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, replacing HICT. With the campus being located at Fraser Business Park, Sungai Besi, the location enabled students to enjoy the benefits of urban living and provide access to excellent facilities and services. The city Light Rail Transit (LRT) which is situated only a 3-minute walk away connects Kuala Lumpur to the suburban areas like Subang Jaya, Petaling Jaya, Kelana Jaya, Cheras, Sentul and Gombak.

Imperium’s strategic location at Fraser Business Park, Sungai Besi enables students to enjoy the benefits of living and learning in metropolitan of Kuala Lumpur with access to top academic and professional expertise as well as excellent facilities with a link bridge to the city’s Light Rail Transit (LRT) network that connects the college (Chan Sow Lin LRT station) to the greater KL.

A purpose-designed campus, HELP CAT offered a wide range of innovative academic, professional and vocational programmes for students. The quality of education offered to students was proven to be world-class when the Malaysian Education Ministry rated HELPCAT 5 stars (excellent) for its student quality, resources, quality management system, and programme of graduate recognition.

Throughout the years, the college has built and maintain top-rated partners including the University of London, UK and the Normandy Business School, France to provide more options for academic and career development. The college was also awarded the Platinum Accredited Learning Partner by internationally renowned Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and has since maintain its status.

Fast forward to March 2020, MAA Group Berhad successfully completed the takeover of HELP CAT and resumed operations as Imperium International College. This was also to ensure that as the new official entity, Imperium achieves one of its key strategic objectives to provide the best quality education and skill for a wide range of students while giving back to the community.

While there was a new management in place, the academic workforce remained the same, as they had proven track records of producing high quality graduates as well as global prize winners. To date, Imperium has approximately 80 academicians and a majority of them have been with the college close to a decade.

Imperium International College has partnered with United Kingdom’s Anglia Ruskin University and United States’ Fort Hays State University. to provide bachelor’s programmes across Accounting, Business, Computer Science and Engineering.

Students who wish to pursue these programmes can progress seamlessly from Imperium’s home-grown Foundation and Diploma programmes, which are accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA), a statutory body in Malaysia set up under the Malaysian Qualifications Act 2007 to accredit academic programs provided by educational institutions providing higher education and facilitate the accreditation and articulation of qualifications.
Imperium also offers vocational programmes such as the Diploma in Culinary Arts, Hospitality and Tourism as well as certificate programmes for languages such as English and Spanish. The Spanish programme offered in Imperium is in partnership with The Instituto Cervantes, the official Spanish Government Centre.

With the mission to provide the best quality education and skills for a wide range of students, Imperium is also working hand in hand with The Budimas Charitable Organisation in providing scholarships to deserving students. Imperium has also given out approximately RM2 million in scholarship to high achievers, sports scholars and many others since taking over.

Most recently, the college also introduced two new initiatives that redefined student’s tertiary education experience. They are the Imperium Interview Opportunity Programme and the Study Now Pay Later financial aid.

The former guarantees graduates who meet specified criteria that they will receive an interview placement opportunity with an organisation that is related to their area of study. This is a joint initiative between Imperium International College & MAA Group Bhd to create opportunities and provide a career jumpstart for our graduates.

Imperium’s Study Now Pay Later financial aid provides a 100% study loan for students who are looking to pursue ACCA or ACCA Foundation in Accounting. This financial aid, which is only open to Malaysian students, will not only give students a head start towards a career in professional accountancy, but also provide them with a peace of mind thanks to its stretched out 7-year repayment plan that is 100% interest free throughout the course period.

As a tertiary education provider, Imperium International College is committed to ensuring that our students can access high quality education and the best employment opportunities across all sectors. Imperium International College is now owned by MAA Group as the company puts focus on expanding its education business. MAA Group also owns St John’s International School and Pusat Tuisyen Kasturi under its subsidiary, Edumaax Sdn Bhd.

Imperium International College has sealed partnerships and affiliations with the some of the world’s highly ranked institutions such as United Kingdom’s Anglia Ruskin University and United States’ Fort Hays State University.

Our story starts in 1858, when the art critic, patron and philanthropist John Ruskin opened Cambridge School of Art. The art school grew to become Anglia Ruskin University, shortened to ARU, and it’s still at the heart of our modern-day campus in Cambridge.

 

Over the years, a number of colleges and institutes have become part of ARU. They include the Cambridgeshire College of Arts and Technology (CCAT) and the Essex Institute of Higher Education (formerly the Chelmer Institute – itself formed from the Mid-Essex Technical College and the Brentwood College of Education). At first, these colleges combined to become Anglia Polytechnic, and then Anglia Polytechnic University in 1992.

 

We’ve seen lots of changes since 1858, but one thing has remained the same. We’re still passionate about transforming lives through innovative, inclusive and entrepreneurial education and research.

 

Today, students from more than 185 countries study with us. Our students are at the heart of our University: their educational experience engages, challenges and empowers them to reach their full potential.

 

We have always been inclusive, and actively encourage students from a wide range of academic and societal backgrounds to study with us. We measure our success by their success. Our research and innovation draw on the breadth of ARU strengths to develop ideas and solutions which have the potential to transform lives and communities and enrich our curriculum.

 

We’re known for being welcoming, and are proud to be a Disability Confident Employer, a Stonewall Diversity Champion and a Mindful Employer. We also value the wider ARU community, as it has the potential to create a university that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Fort Hays State University was founded in 1902 as the Western Branch of Kansas State Normal School.

The state of Kansas initially intended the university’s academic programs to focus on agriculture, but it opened in as a “normal” or teacher’s college.
