In May 2011, HELP CAT was established as a city college in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Its campus is located at Fraser Business Park, Sungai Besi, and is part of the multi-campus development of the HELP Group. The location enables students to enjoy the benefits of urban living and provides access to excellent facilities and services.

In tune with the objective of Malaysia to be a regional centre of educational excellence, HELP CAT has formed partnerships with a range of good overseas universities to conduct ‘3+0’ programmes, examples being the University of London, and Anglia Ruskin University.

There are also vocational and professional programmes such as the Diploma in Culinary Arts with the outstanding Institut Paul Bocuse of France, and the accounting programmes like the Certified Accounting Technician and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants of ACCA, UK. The range of programmes offered, including the Foundation Studies in Arts and Science, will provide students with relevant pathways to undergraduate studies and professional qualifications that are connected to high-growth sectors with a strong demand for the employment of such graduates.

History

In 1858, John Ruskin officially opened a School of Art in Sidney Street, Cambridge by delivering the inaugural address. The institution grew to become the modern Anglia Ruskin University. Nearly 155 years later, the School of Art still forms part of our University, now much expanded beyond its original confines with another major campus in Chelmsford and a number of developing partnerships with colleges throughout the eastern region and the world.

John Ruskin (1819-1900) was, without question, the leading art critic of the 19th century. But he was far more than that. He was passionately concerned with social reform, as well as the relationship between human beings and society, nature, architecture, craftsmanship and ideas. In a very real sense, Ruskin’s ideas continue to shape our society, providing the social philosophical underpinnings for such features as free schools, free hospitals, a minimum wage and care for the elderly. One of Ruskin’s best known works ‘Unto This Last’ (1860-62) has been described as a book which changed history, inspiring the minds of politicians, philosophers and authors, including such luminaries as Gandhi, Tolstoy, Proust and Oscar Wilde.

Since its foundation our University has grown to become the institution it is today, educating around 30,000 students in the UK and abroad; delivering courses that provide relevant word-based skills; developing state-of-the-art teaching and learning environments; and embarking on world-leading research.
