The idea for an institution of higher learning for the Malays was first mooted at the 1903 Rulers' Conference, or Durbar. The Malay intellectual Za'ba, wrote about such a need in the newsletter Lembaga Melayu in 1917.

A movement, and subsequent debates, among Malay intellectuals, for the setting up a university using the Malay language as the medium of instruction in the institution of higher learning was formed in 1923 when another Malay thinker Abdul Kadir Adabi, submitted a memorandum on the matter to the HRH the Sultan of Kelantan. However the effort came to nothing due to many obstacles and resistance from the colonial authorities.
