Established in 1989, the University of Melbourne Alumni Association in Malaysia remains an active and vibrant community and has been most successful in fostering bonds of fraternity amongst our Malaysian graduates. We are a proud alumni with its membership strengthened by its multi-dimensional diversity - diverse cultural backgrounds, professional disciplines, personal interests and age groups. The Alumni Association also provides a way for alumni to help each other as well as prospective students, current students, and young alumni — who seek guidance in pursuing their education and starting their career.
