In January 2018, Universal Hua Xia International School (Penang) began its operations with the focus of universality in mind. One of the school’s missions is to embrace and instill respect for the diversity of cultures, evident in our team of staff members and teachers who come from various parts of the world. We believe that universality expounds on the idea of coalescing Oriental values with Western education, setting the perfect platform for global citizenship, as this is never undertaken in isolation but rather through the exploration of people, places, relationships and cultures.


Universal Hua Xia International School (Penang) offers education from the Nursery level to Year 12. Learners in the Early Years (Nursery & Pre-School) undergo the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum while learners in formal education (Primary and Secondary level) undergo the IGCSE curriculum. To further enhance the international learning experience, UHXIS holds the Cambridge International Accreditation and the curriculum is guided by the highest international standards and expectations. At UHXIS, learners are groomed to explore and expand their potential, capitalising their talents and capabilities.


Our mission at UHXIS is to:

  • prepare learners to be autonomous, equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills in building professional credentials.
  • incorporate practical and theoretical knowledge towards holistic development focusing on integrity and values.
  • Instil respect for diversity prioritising humanity & culture


UHXIS (Early Years) offers a holistic, progressive and developmentally appropriate curriculum, where the programme implements various best international practices to capitalise on the child’s unique interests and to develop their skills and positive dispositions for lifelong learning.

In these few months, UHXIS (Early Years) has gained the trust and recognition of parents. The learning environment is carefully planned to cater to every stage of the child’s development. We also provide a fun and interactive learning environment that is suitable for play-based learning and outdoor activities, which takes your child’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm to form relationships, and to develop readiness skills in the following 7 key areas: 

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development
  • Physical Development
  • Communication and Language Development
  • Literacy Development
  • Mathematics
  • Understanding the World
  • Expressive Arts and Design

Pre-Nursery & Nursery

At this stage, children are supported by a conducive, stimulating and responsive environment, where they learn by making sense of things and people around them, investigating the world, forming relationships and engaging in active social interactions. They will be exposed to more sensory, hands on activities both indoor and outdoor. It is crucial for children at this age to learn to be independent in their daily routines, physical, social-emotional, communication and language competencies, as well as, creative expression. These two years of learning will ensure a smoother transition to a more structured and skill-driven learning expectations of the preschool year.

Preschool and Prep Year

In the preschool year, the emphasis shifts from play-based learning to a more purposeful acquisition and understanding of concepts, skills and development. From this stage onwards, children will be exposed to a balance of structures and choices, small and large group time, as well as indoor and outdoor activities. Our programme promotes children’s interests, curiosity and their natural inquisitiveness for knowledge, learning from experiences through problem solving, inquiry, investigation, discovery and other hands-on learning activities. By the end of prep year, children will be confidently ready for formal education and be competent to read and write, as well as understand simple mathematical and scientific concepts.
