Undergraduate study abroad opportunities
Our popular Master of Pharmacy (MPharm) includes a variety of opportunities to study overseas.
Students studying in Nottingham
If you’re studying with us in Nottingham, we offer the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to apply to spend part or all of your second year at the Malaysia campus.
Interested students are encouraged to attend the Study Abroad Fair which will take place in mid-November of your first year. We'll also organise an information presentation for pharmacy students before the Autumn term ends. Both events will assist you in your application as places at the Malaysia Campus are limited.
In your third year you can apply to carry out your second semester research project at the Malaysia campus or at one of our partner universities.
2+2 MPharm degree
The School of Pharmacy at the Malaysia Campus offers the MPharm degree as a 2+2 programme, enabling you to spend two years in Malaysia followed by two years in Nottingham.
This programme is fully accredited by the General Pharmaceutical Council of Great Britain. Graduates receive the same UK-accredited degree as students graduating from the four-year Nottingham MPharm, and are therefore qualified to register as a pharmacist in the UK, after successful completion of the pre-registration training year.
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus welcomed its first students to a new 101-acre Campus, based at Semenyih, 30 km from Kuala Lumpur, in 2005. It is the first purpose built campus of a British university outside the UK. The Campus is a full and integral part of The University of Nottingham.
Postgraduate study abroad opportunities
The School of Pharmacy in Malaysia also offers a full range of research degree programmes for students who already have an undergraduate qualification. These range from the one-year Masters by Research (MRes) to three and four-year PhD programmes.
We also offer the opportunity for students registered on either campus to spend part of their time at the other campus.
