GlobalNxt University achieved university status in 2012, a decade after U21Global was established as one of the first truly global online graduate schools.
Founded in 2001, U21Global began as a pioneering academic partnership that originally involved up to 21 prestigious universities internationally renowned for their teaching and research. Through a cutting-edge online learning model, U21Global was able to offer its students the same standard of high-quality programmes found at traditional world-class brick-and-mortar universities, but packaged and delivered in an innovative, technology-enhanced format.
Success came quickly. U21Global enrolled over 9,000 students across 72 countries and rapidly developed a distinguished reputation for high-quality, academically-rigorous, online programmes.
U21Global’s achievements did not go unnoticed. At the invitation of the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia, to build a world-class, technology-enabled university, a new full-fledged university was established. The new university was named GlobalNxt University and adopted Malaysia as a hub for its global academic operations.
As a full, autonomous university in its own right, GlobalNxt University was accorded the rights to apply its pioneering online learning model to a much broader range of programmes and schools where it continues to raise the benchmark for online education with its emphasis on interactive pedagogy, advanced learning technology and use of high calibre, PhD-qualified global faculty.
GlobalNxt University is ideally placed to take forward U21Global’s original vision of global, borderless education to the next level. Indeed, the emergence of a full-fledged independent university in GlobalNxt University that was built upon U21Global’s ground-breaking learning model represented an incredible decade of achievement for the founding universities.
