The University of Nottingham is described by The Times Good University Guide
2015 as “the nearest Britain has to a truly global university, with campuses in China and Malaysia modelled on a headquarters
that is among the most attractive in Britain”.
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) opened in September 2000 and became the first British university to set up
a campus both outside of the UK and in Malaysia, earning The University of Nottingham the Queen's award for Enterprise 2001 and
the Queen's Award for Industry (international Trade) 2006.
In September 2005, the Malaysia Campus moved to its own purpose-built site in Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur. Designed to
reflect University Park Campus in Nottingham, it is a self-contained, self-sufficient village situated on an attractive 125-acre site.
UNMC has about 5,000 students and around 700 teaching and administrative staff from all over the world.
The University of Nottingham is placed 70th in the world and in the top 1% of
Universities internationally by the latest (2015) QS World University Rankings.
Foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate taught and research courses at UNMC are taught within 17 schools and departments across the
faculties of Arts and Social Sciences, Engineering and Science. Our graduates are highly sought after, with 92% employed or in further
study six months after graduation* – one of the highest graduate employment rates in Malaysia.
The University of Nottingham is proud of its international reputation for world changing research, a reputation which extends across
all of our campuses. We were rated No. 8 for research power in the latest Research Excellence Framework. Research at UNMC has a particular
focus on addressing the challenges facing Southeast Asia and countries in the Islamic world. Over the last few years research capacity has
developed rapidly and an increased number of research grants have been funded from various sources in Malaysia, the EU and the UK, with research
funding totalling nearly RM 13m in 2014.
The Malaysian Qualifications Agency has granted UNMC self-accrediting status, one of only a limited number of universities to be granted such an accolade.
We offer the best in UK education in an Asian setting. Our programmes are identical to those offered at The University of Nottingham in the UK and follow the
same quality assurance processes, and students are awarded University of Nottingham degree certificates when they complete their course.
We provide excellent study abroad opportunities for our students to study abroad at our UK and China Campuses, as well as at our many partner universities across
the globe, offering inter-campus, international exchange and summer school programmes.
