The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) was the first full international campus established by a British university in Malaysia and one of the first in the world. It opened its doors to around 80 students in September 2000 at a small city center site. Thirteen years later, the student population is close to 5000 and the University occupies a purpose-built campus on a 125-acre site close to Semenyih, about 35km south of Kuala Lumpur.
UNMC is now a broad-based institution with 20 different academic areas and an extensive range of study programs at foundation, undergraduate, masters and Ph.D. levels. A highly international community of students live and work in a campus environment where the academic study is complemented by a range of co-curricular activities which help students to develop employment-relevant skills. UNMC graduates are highly valued by employers in Malaysia and beyond.
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus aspires to be:
an elite but inclusive educational institution within Southeast Asia which is recognized for its academic breadth, the quality of the education it provides and the excellence of the student experience. UNMC graduates will be known for their entrepreneurship, their creativity, their independence, and critical thinking and for their global outlook
a truly international institution which is home to a community of global citizens with a highly developed understanding of their local, national and global responsibilities
an institution that is characterized by excellence in research, where scholars have a particular focus on addressing the challenges facing Southeast Asia and countries in the Islamic world. Our focus will be on developing and applying our research capabilities to make a positive impact on economic, social and cultural well-being within ASEAN and the broader Southeast Asia region
an institution which is partnership-oriented, working with universities, with government and business, with the third sector and with local communities to discharge its responsibilities to society in its broadest sense
an institution which is sustainable both financially and environmentally and committed to its home in Malaysia for the longer term
The University of Nottingham will deliver against this aspiration through three core activities:
• Excellence in education
• World-changing research
• Knowledge exchange
Delivery of the core activities will be characterized by a distinctive emphasis on:
• Global reach
• University life
• Social responsibility
• Sustaining excellence
Students are the heart of the University and learn in an academically-stimulating environment. Students are especially nurtured with regards to personal development, which includes current entrepreneurial and leadership skills. These commitments and their achievement are recognised by the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) Gold rating for outstanding teaching achieved in 2017 and Rating System for Malaysian Higher Education Institutions (SETARA) 2017 5-star ‘Excellent’ for mature university category. There are just two of the most recent ratings received for the quality of teaching and learning at Nottingham.
The SETARA rating is further evidence of our strong commitment to the growth of the higher education sector in Malaysia, in providing access to students to earn an international degree with mobility opportunities across campuses in the UK and China. In addition, being part of two quality assurance jurisdictions (QAA*, UK and MQA**) further strengthens our quality standing, as we are independently evaluated by these agencies. The University is consistently among the highest ranking performers in independent teaching assessments.
We offer a comprehensive and varied range of programs, catering to students at all levels, through the foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate to Ph.D. Our programs span a range of disciplines and subjects across arts and social sciences, engineering and science. Our degrees are accredited by both the Malaysian and UK quality assurance agencies and by relevant national and international professional bodies such as the Association of MBAs, EQUIS, the UK Engineering Council, the General Pharmaceutical Council (UK), Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and Pharmacy Board Malaysia (PBM).
The undergraduate and postgraduate taught programs provide a structured framework for the study. They are based upon a program of strategic and innovative delivery and assessment mechanisms and also traditional ones such as lectures, seminars, and tutorials. Students will normally complete compulsory core modules and will have the opportunity to select from a number of optional modules.
These programs aim to equip you with a curiosity-driven and deep understanding of your subject, as well as a critical approach and skills relevant to your future career. The teaching is informed by the
very latest research findings and our programs constantly evolve to incorporate new research developments, with many delivered by research scholars, passionate about their subjects. We also regularly consult with businesses and employers to ensure our programs are structured with the opportunity to develop key transferable skills for employment.
