The University of Southampton was invited by the Malaysian Government to establish a branch campus for engineering within the EduCity development in Iskandar, Malaysia, with the campus opening in October 2012.

The University of Southampton has seven campuses, six in the UK and one in Malaysia. In 2016, the first group of students graduated with excellent results from the UK campus, where they obtained 10 First Class and eight Upper Second Class MEng degrees. Since its opening in 2012, the University of Southampton has grown the number and variety of undergraduate programmes on offer and recently added Business, Computer Science and Economics BSc programmes to its portfolio as well as expanding the Foundation Year courses.

The University of Southampton split campus (UK and Malaysia) degree programmes offer the chance to gain a unique ‘Southampton’ education for the first two years in Malaysia combined with the final two years at a world-class research-centred university in the UK. The BSc courses are available to study full-time in Malaysia or transfer to the UK after the first or second year of study. Regardless of whether you study the split campus programmes or study full time in Malaysia, you will graduate with a degree from an internationally recognised university and gain a truly global education experience.

In October 2021, the University of Southampton Malaysia relocated to a brand-new campus located in Eco Galleria, Iskandar Puteri, Johor. The upgraded 150,000 sq. ft. multi-storey campus is built to accommodate up to 2,000 students and features state-of-the-art facilities.
