Introduction

 

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus welcomed its first students in September 2000. This development is a fundamental part of Nottingham’s vision to become a truly global university for the 21st century and beyond.

 

The Malaysia Campus is a full and integral part of The University of Nottingham, UK. It is led by senior academic staff seconded from Nottingham who ensure that the standard of teaching is of the same high quality as its UK campuses. This means that students receive a genuine Nottingham education from day one.

 

Faculty members, both at the UK and Malaysia Campus have a wide range of skills and experience. A number have worked in industry, commerce, or the public sector, before becoming academics; many are active consultants as well as researchers and teachers. Teaching programmes are also enriched by input from leading practitioners where appropriate.

 

The Malaysia Campus is the first ever branch campus of a British institution to be set up outside of the UK. It is a 125-acre purpose-built campus, was completed in 2005. Currently, there are about 4000 students at the Malaysia Campus, about 35% are international students from 75 countries and is a brewing pot of multicultural diversity and experience.

 

The campus which mirrors the Nottingham architecture in UK has complete university facilities. It is strategically located about 45 minutes'' drive from Kuala Lumpur City Centre and 30 minutes'' drive from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, the campus exudes greenery, tranquility amidst state-of-the-art teaching facilities and a conducive environment to line in and study.

 

What Makes Us Special?

At Nottingham, it is about "getting an education" rather than "getting a degree". This is what makes Nottingham unique and gives it what it refers to as the ''Nottingham Edge'' - an unrivalled combination of quality and excellence, strength and pragmatism, enabled learning, boldness and innovation, respect and tolerance.

The University aims to provide the best in UK education - innovative teaching and assessment methods. Our programmes encourage self-development, where you are encouraged to be independent, use initiative, and learn and explore new things. In effect we provide you with the tools to learn and develop your skills rather than simply training you to pass examinations and gain a degree. As a result, Nottingham graduates are equipped not only for the world of work as they leave university but also with the skills needed to go on developing in their careers in the future.

The University offers an innovative modular course system, encouraging flexibility and access to a wide range of subjects. Many of the first degrees are modular - ideal for students wishing to study specific combinations of subjects.

Global thinking is an integral part of life at Nottingham in a way that sets it apart from most other universities. Study abroad is incorporated into many of its courses and all students are encouraged to think internationally.

The student profile reflects Nottingham’s world-class status. On The University’s campuses, you will find people from many nationalities, cultures and educational backgrounds.

 

Programme Outline

 

Programmes at the Malaysia Campus are identical (where relevant) to those offered at Nottingham after which degree certificates from The University of Nottingham are awarded, irrespective of whether the course was undertaken at Nottingham or Malaysia.

Our degrees are accredited by professional bodies such as the Association of MBA''s, British Computer Society, General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC), British Psychological Association, and the UK Engineering Council which means that our programmes are tested for quality. Furthermore, the Malaysia Campus also has been recognised as part of the country’s higher education elite under a new government initiative. It has been granted the power to approve and accredit its own degree programmes, rather than having to apply for approval from the country’s higher education ministry. The campus also has been rated "excellent" or ''Tier Five'' status in a national assessment of teaching and learning ranked by The Rating System for Malaysian Higher Education (SETARA). From an employer’s perspective, it is a guarantee of top talents.
