Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI)

Tanjung Malim is a small town in southern Perak on the border with the state of Selangor, Malaysia.  It is some 70 km north of Kuala Lumpur.  This small town can be reached by using the North-South expressway and going through Ulu Bernam in Selangor.

A picturesque town which is fast showing signs of modernisation and new development, Tanjung Malim is well known among the teaching and circles of Malaysia for the presence of the Sultan Idris Teachers' Training College ( Institut Pendidikan Sultan Idris ), a teacher-training college noted for having produced members of the teaching profession who either become teachers of students who later rose to national importance or who themselves acquired national significance of one sort or another.

Named after the late Sultan Idris, during whose reign many important events took place in Perak, the college is housed in a grand building of British colonial design. Its distinctiveness architecturally has made it a well-known landmark in Tanjung Malim, of being an institute of the teaching profession not only in Perak but indeed for the whole nation.

The Training College was then upgraded in 1997 to form the current Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI) and was officially open on May 1, 1997.  The University is specialised in teacher training and all education related courses.  Its main objective is to fulfill the current needs of the educational field in Malaysia.
