Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

At UCSI International School (UIS) Kuala Lumpur, the combination of the Cambridge International Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum; during primary school lays the foundations for secondary school and the rigorous IGCSE exams. Our multinational teachers are well-qualified to deliver the curriculum, and our makerspace, science labs, and studios enable hands-on learning.

Since August 2021, UIS Kuala Lumpur has been inducted as the first Finnish Experience Flagship School in Malaysia. Through this holistic partnership, the school will be introducing four new tech-based modules: Code School Finland, Eduten Playground, GraphoGame, & School Day. The inclusion of these modules is designed to inculcate skills such as coding, gamification, robotics, IT, & emotional intelligence in students, preparing them for the ever-changing 21st Century world.

UIS KL has also established The EdTech Centre, a one-stop technology and learning hub to enable students, teachers, parents and the community to interact with one another on the growing importance of the 21st Century Skills. These skills, among others, consist of creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking, leveraging emerging digital technologies to increase the reach and impact of education.

Beyond that, UIS Kuala Lumpur focuses on Eight Critical Characteristics in our learning content and experiences. Supported by Apple Education, our students will learn to learn IT, design, robotics, and computer science with tools and resources such as the Everyone Can Create & Everyone Can Code programmes. The rapid advancement of technological innovation, global competition, and a push towards a knowledge-based economy require that our students have a repertoire of soft and hard skills. We therefore place a strong emphasis on technology, character education, and co-curricular activities, forming a truly 21st Century Education.
