Inter-Campus Exchange programme

The Inter-Campus Exchange Programme gives eligible students the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or a year during the second year of their degree programme at the University of Nottingham Malaysia.

The study abroad period is part of your existing degree programme and is an amazing opportunity to experience your degree subject from a different perspective, within a new culture, whilst continuing to study at the University of Nottingham.


From our students

"What an amazing six months! Malaysia has friendly people, flavoursome food and fantastic biodiversity! From the moment I walked onto the University’s Malaysia Campus I felt welcome. There were students from many countries, creating a great learning environment both academically and socially.

Tropical ecosystems became so much more real as I studied them; the lecturers have a real depth of knowledge and a passion for conservation which comes through in the more intimate lecture environment with small class sizes"

BSc Environmental Science student, studied abroad at the University of Nottingham Malaysia for one semester
