Forming a fruitful alliance

The partnership is designed to promote the internationalisation of higher education in Business and Management and also cultural cooperation between Malaysia and the United Kingdom.

“Partnering with University of Bradford, which has over 50 years of academic excellence in the UK is an honour for UNITAR and represents the right choice for our students to begin their international education pathway,” said UNITAR International University Strategic Alliance and Communications Office director Sheikh Fahmy Sheikh Mohamed.
UNITAR Bachelor of Management and Bachelor of Business Administrations (Hons) students under the articulation programme will be able to continue their second and final year at University of Bradford.

UNITAR students would be able to find a warm and comfortable place to sleep, study or just relax – University of Bradford is proud of The Green, its student accommodation that has been awarded first prize for Best Student Housing at the prestigious College and University Business Officers (CUBO).
A £40mil (RM217mil) student village, The Green is a purposebuilt student village at the City Campus, putting students right at the heart of the university’s academic studies, student facilities, support services and social activities.
It is a unique example of sustainable building design and development of its kind in the world, making the most of natural resources such as solar power and rainwater and costing very little to heat and light up the place.
A student social programme featuring a team of students acting as ambassadors to organise events, trips and competitions for sustainable living at The Green add to the community spirit felt throughout the student village.
