The Nottingham experience
tHOUSANDS of Malaysian students have studied at The University of Nottingham, the United Kingdom, since it gained university status in 1948.
There are currently over 550 students from Malaysia studying at the university this academic year.
The university’s distinguished graduates include many prominent members of Malaysian society, including the Sultan of Perak, the late Yang Di-Pertuan Besar of Negri Sembilan, former ministers and leaders of business and industry.
The University of Nottingham’s campus in Malaysia was the first international campus established by a UK university, and next year the campus will celebrate its 15th year in operation.
The Malaysian campus is both an expression of the university’s special relationship with Malaysia and a direct response to the Malaysian government’s plans to establish Malaysia as a centre of excellence for higher education in the region and beyond.
The campus is a full and integral part of The University of Nottingham, UK, and offers students the Nottingham experience in an Asian setting.
It is part of a global institution serving an international community of students and yet is firmly rooted in all that is distinctive about British education.
These include innovative teaching and assessment methods, independent, creative and critical thinking and an emphasis on the development of a range of inter-personal skills.
Quality standards are also among the best in the world.
At the same time, it is also a Malaysian institution and is fully integrated and engaged with the higher education community in Malaysia.
The Malaysia Campus offers a wide range of courses in areas such as Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology, Business and Management, Pharmacy, Plant Biotechnology, Environmental Science, Nutrition, International Communication and International Relations, Education, Applied Psychology, Biomedical Science, Economics and English Language and Applied Linguistics.
In total, 17 UK campus Schools and Departments have a presence at the Malaysian campus.
