NUMed right choice for future doctors
Affordable foundation course first step to realising your goals
THOSE aspiring to become doctors have an alternative and a more efficient route to medical school by taking the foundation certificate at Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed).
Based in Malaysia at Newcastle University’s medical campus NUMed in Johor, the Foundation Certificate in Biological and Biomedical Science is a 12-month course that you take instead of your final year of Alevels.
If you meet the tailored course’s requirements, there is an added bonus of being able to secure a place at NUMed.
As opposed to A-levels, the course will prepare you to study medicine or biomedicine at the university with tailored modules, such as the “Foundation of Medical Studies” programme, and hands-on classes such as “An Introduction to Anatomy”, giving you the opportunity to experience life as a medical student.
You will also be taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Maths, Science and Engineering, English and Medical Studies as these subjects are vital in the field of medicine.
NUMed’s Foundation Certificate will give you the opportunity to learn about all the courses on offer such as the MBBS and BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science programmes.
On campus, you will be integrated with students who are already on the programmes, and you will be taught by the lecturers of those courses.
Why study the Foundation Certificate? World class education: NUMed is 100 per cent owned by the leading United Kingdom (UK) University, Newcastle University.
The foundation certificate just like our MBBS and BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences Programmes is conferred by Newcastle University UK.
Newcastle University, part of the UK Russell Group, has more than 175 years of history and a world-class reputation for research excellence, so you can be certain that you will receive an excellent education during your time with us.
Pathway to a medical or biomedical degree: If you successfully completed the Foundation Certificate to the required level, you will be offered a place in one of our
MAY 21, 2017 medical degrees.
This means that you will not be competing for places on those programmes.
Same quality, fraction of the cost: Studying NUMed’s Foundation Certificate in Biological and Biomedical Sciences means that you are getting the same quality of tuition as studying at the UK campus, but at a fraction of the cost.
State-of-the-art facilities: Health Ministry director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah said we have unparalleled medical facilities in our campus. NUMed is one of the best medical schools in Malaysia.
Unbeatable accommodation: You could be living in modern self-catering apartments, complete with your own bedroom that shares a central kitchen, living area, and bathroom with fellow students.
You would also have access to free wireless Internet, a 24-hour gated security, swimming pool and a gym.
All of these are just a 10-minute drive to campus with free, regular transport to the campus and surrounding areas.
What else you can do?: NUMed is located in Iskandar Puteri (formerly known as Nusajaya) in Johor.
We are a thriving university hub with UK’s University of Southampton and University of Reading branches next door.
The EduCity Sports complex, with an outdoor and indoor arena, sports fields, 50 metres swimming pool and gym, is also just around the corner.
In campus, you will find a dance studio, games room, pool table and widescreen television complete with Astro subscription.
There are also many societies and organisations to cater to any passion or interest.
Excellent student support: You will be supported throughout your university life from first application to graduation.
You will be assigned a personal tutor to guide you throughout your studies and we offer study skills, information technology, and well-being support during your time with us.
Regardless of the support you need, we are here to help.
If you are thinking of embarking on a lifechanging career in medicine, we want to help you succeed by offering you a world-class medical education.
NUMed’s Foundation Certificate is an accessible, affordable, and achievable first step to realising your goals.
