HWUM’s newly established state-of-the-art, green campus in Putrajaya offers Malaysians an affordable and accessible option to gain a globally recognised British degree.
The lakeside flagship campus is situated in Putrajaya and is less than 20 minutes from Kuala Lumpur. It has excellent facilities designed for effective learning.
“For many students, it will be just like going to the UK for their degree without having to leave all the benefits of home,” says chief executive officer and Provost of HWUM, Prof Robert Craik.
“The Putrajaya campus students will be getting a global education with a UK degree from a highly ranked university with a 200-year heritage. They will be taught by a highly qualified and experienced faculty.
“The courses and exams conducted in Malaysia will be identical. We are also getting the best academics for the campus and would not hire anyone for Malaysia which we would not also hire for our Edinburgh campus.”
The tuition fees are set at competitively accessible levels for Malaysians and those in the surrounding regions.
The overall cost of obtaining a Masters degree in Malaysia is around 60% of the cost of obtaining the same degree in Britain. There are also generous scholarships available.
