Throughout the years, MIA has continued to maintain a very conducive environment of learning where every student can fully develop his/her potentials and acquire all the knowledge and skills necessary for a practicing artist, designer and musician.


The accreditation granted by the Malaysian Qualification Agency (MQA ) to all the courses offered by MIA is a testimony of our quality education and academic standards.

Our recent award of 5-STAR ranking in the MYQuest is a clear indication of our quality education and academic standards.

Students enrolled in accredited courses are eligible to apply for PTPTN loan which helps their parents who pay their course fees a great deal.

The provision of latest computers, software, books, periodicals and WiFi provides an excellent learning environment for our students to develop their potential and excel in their creative careers.



Our teaching staff will make every effort to incorporate contemporary design trends, approaches, methodologies and local multi-cultural values into the course contents to enhance the quality in our study programmes for professional artists, designers and musicians.


MIA has also maintained a very strong link with overseas universities where our graduates may proceed to complete their BA and Master degree programmes through advanced placement or credit transfer in UK , Australia , New Zealand , China , Korea , Taiwan and USA as our Diploma is well recognized by our partner universities.
