Message from the President


Dr Seah Soo Aun

Welcome to DISTED College. I am glad that you have made your way here, and I am pleased to introduce you to DISTED College, Penang’s first private, not-for-profit institution of higher learning. Since our inception in 1987, DISTED has produced more than 10,000 graduates from its pre-university, diploma and degree programmes. Many have gone on to hold significant positions and rewarding careers in the public and private sectors. If you are visiting us from outside Malaysia, we are located in Penang island, often dubbed the Pearl of the Orient or the Silicon Valley of the East. The DISTED community joins me in welcoming you to join our growing community of international students coming from Thailand, Indonesia, Korea and Russia, just to name a few.

Closer to home, DISTED is also a much sought-after institution of choice among students from neighbouring states around Penang, with a majority coming from Kedah and Perak. The DISTED Student Residence, SPACE, provides a home-away-from-home accommodation facility for these out-of-town students.Read more
