Established in 1987, DISTED, a premier non-profit college in Penang owned by the Wawasan Education Foundation, is committed to providing education and training to young students to serve the needs of industry and community. The college currently operates from two exquisite heritage properties – the Yeap Chor Ee Heritage Campus that sits elegantly amongst the tree-lined Macalister Road and the DISTED School of Hospitality Management located at the Wawasan City Campus on China Street Ghaut in the heritage enclave of UNESCO World Heritage City of George Town.

It offers a wide range of high quality courses from certificate to bachelor degree level in pre-university studies, business, hospitality, psychology, IT and engineering.

DISTED takes pride in its financial award and bursary schemes, which are partly supported by the Wawasan Education Foundation and Yeap Chor Ee Charitable Trust, and the success of the schemes in recognizing and rewarding not only academically talented students but also deserving students who are in financial need
