The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) opened in September 2000 to become the first branch campus of a British university in Malaysia and one of the first in the world. A friendly atmosphere, world-class teaching and extensive facilities make it a popular choice for Malaysian and international students, as well as exchange students from Nottingham; students represent around 70 different nationalities. All teaching is in English and the campus forms a full and integral part of The University of Nottingham.
A world-class campus in Malaysia
In 2010, we celebrated 10 years of The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC). After opening in 2000, UNMC moved to a RM140m (£28m) site 22 miles south of Kuala Lumpur. The campus is led by senior academic staff who are seconded from Nottingham and ensure that the standard of teaching is of the same high quality as its UK campuses. Programmes at the Malaysia Campus are not differentiated from those offered at the Nottingham campuses, and students are awarded degree certificates from The University of Nottingham.
Whether you’re based in Malaysia for the duration of your degree or you spend time there as part of a campus exchange, you will benefit from a wide range of facilities on a 125-acre site. These include state-of-the-art laboratories, 24-hour computer access, an extensive library, a bookshop and cafe, convenience stores, a sports complex with a fitness centre, basketball, squash and tennis courts, running tracks and a swimming pool, a Student Association building and a health centre. The campus has been modelled on University Park Campus in Nottingham and is a self-contained, self-sufficient village overlooking scenic green hills.
Malaysia is a pluralist culture based on a vibrant and interesting fusion of Malay, Chinese, Indian and indigenous communities. English is widely spoken and the Malaysian Constitution guarantees freedom of worship. Transport is available from UNMC to the nearest bus and rail stations, providing easy access to Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding area. KL, as it is almost universally known, is now the commercial hub of Malaysia and is an attractive city with awe-inspiring architecture, modern hotels, financial centres and shopping complexes. In the city centre, there are many old colonial buildings, a vibrant Chinatown with street vendors and night markets, and a bustling Little India.
Residential accommodation is available both on and off campus.
Please be aware that courses accredited by external bodies in the UK may not be accredited in the same way at our overseas campuses. Please contact us for details.
