The Not­ting­ham ex­pe­ri­ence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HIGHER EDUCATION -

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.
