Kolej Laila Taib was established on 1st March 2010 when Kolej Bersatu Sarawak was renamed as Kolej Laila Taib in honour of Datuk Patinggi Dr. Hajjah Laila Taib for her selfless dedication and philanthropic commitments to the generations of Sarawakians during her lifetime.
Kolej Bersatu Sarawak was chosen to carry on Datuk Patinggi’s legacy due to its unprecedented academic records and achievements which it had achieved throughout its 11 year history prior to being renamed as Kolej Laila Taib.
Kolej Laila Taib’s main objective is to ensure that the legacy left behind through Datuk Patinggi Dr. Hajjah Laila Taib’s selfless dedication and philanthropic commitments to the generations of Sarawakians during her lifetime is continued.
Here, her legacy is carried on through KLT, which thrives on the promise of excellence and delivering the best for its students by ensuring that the future generations of Sarawakians enjoy a wide and unprecedented access to tertiary education. This has clearly been proven by the fact that 100% of KLT students currently are under the KLT Scholarship Scheme and do not pay any tuition fees for the entirety of their studies. This ensures that students attain, at least, their Diploma qualifications without any financial burden.
