About Us

Our History

UUM International School Melaka is a newly established international school for children aged 11 to 19 years old in Malacca. Set amidst the lush greenery of an internationally renowned golf course, we are proud to be the very first International School in Malaysia to be established by a Korean national and our school has been approved by the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MOE) and is affiliated with Universiti Utara Malaysia, Sintok, Kedah.


UUMISM offers a high-quality education in an inspiring, supportive and conducive environment. As an International school, we follow Cambridge IGCSE curriculum to educate the children to the highest standards. Our teachers are highly experienced and talented with expertise in delivering an international curriculum through engaging and innovative ways. We are committed to nurture caring, inquisitive, knowledgeable and responsible global citizens who can think critically through world class education in collaboration with the internationally renowned Cambridge International Education.


The school is located at Ayer Keroh Country Club (AKCC), Melaka and it is about 122km south-west of Kuala Lumpur, the capital city of Malaysia. Nestled in a peaceful and serene surrounding, it gives peace of mind and is a perfect place for students to learn at their best. AKCC is also noted as Malaysia’s most beautiful and challenging golf course with 27-hole golf course. The 18th hole is one of the longest in the world. There can never be another perfect place for UUMISM students to excel in their academics and golf at the same time.

Our Vision

UUMISM aspired to be the leading international school in Melaka that offers the best quality of education and golf to our students.

Our Mission

To provide high quality education in a conducive environment, where the positive aspects of each child are acknowledged and differences are recognized, understood and appreciated. We embark on this educational path with a promise to create an atmosphere where every child is given the opportunity to develop their fullest potential at their own pace.

Your Dream. Our Mission.

Founder & Director – UUM International School Melaka

Our Principal

Greetings from UUM International School Melaka (UUMISM). I am indeed honored and thrilled to head this unique and vibrant establishment and am committed to working closely with our students, parents, staff and the community to make UUMISM the leading international school in Melaka.


UUMISM is a registered Cambridge school, offering a ‘one of a kind’ curriculum of academics (IGCSE/A levels) and golf. We offer a 3-pronged programme, where students may opt to pursue either fully academic OR fully academic with golf as an extracurricular sport OR train to be a professional golfer. Its location, amidst the idyllic surroundings of the Ayer Keroh Country Club (AKCC), together with a dedicated team of highly qualified and experienced teachers, ensure a serene, conducive and perfect environment for our young learners to excel in both academics and golf.


At UUMISM, we hold firmly to the belief that character education is equally as important as the academics. To this end, we strive to incorporate essential values such as compassion, honesty, perseverance, respect, responsibility, embracing diversity and sportsmanship, through positive role modelling, extracurricular activities (clubs/sports), school-based events, favourable classroom atmosphere and also across the curriculum.


As embodied in the UUMISM Mission statement, we aim to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment to equip our students with the necessary tools to not only succeed academically but also to be positive influences in society.


We look forward to the pleasure of having you and your family become a part of our school community. Thank you.


Yours sincerely,

Serina Teh
