The university has 12 faculties including Law, Medicine, Engineering, Science and Technology, and Social Sciences and Humanities.


Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia offers a wide variety of academic programmes covering both the arts and sciences. Currently, UKM has embarked on its restructuring programme by successfully establishing the new streamlined Faculty of Science and Technology and Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.


These two newly restructured faculties offer programmes that are multidisciplinary, transcending previously different departments.


At the undergraduate level, the University offers a comprehensive range of courses with a total of 98 disciplines, leading to Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Economics, Bachelor of Accounting, Bachelor of Science Education, Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Law, Doctor of Medicine, Bachelor of Dental Surgery, and Bachelor of Islamic Studies degrees. It is anticipated that in future, new programmes will be offered giving students a wider choice of courses to choose from thus enhancing UKM's academic programmes.


Postgraduate programmes are managed by the Centre for Graduate Studies, which was established in 1983. The Centre offers coursework or research-based programmes on both part time and full time basis. The Centre also collaborates with other national and international institutions of higher learning.
