About Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia

Newcastle University UK, has established an international branch campus in Johor, Malaysia to provide undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MB BS) and the Biomedical Sciences (BSc), as well as opportunities for postgraduate study.

The programmes of study are identical to those of Newcastle’s UK-based provision, and lead to the award of the same degrees. By choosing to study at NUMed Malaysia, students will obtain a reputable UK qualification, from an internationally recognized university, at a cost significantly less than that of studying in the UK.

While the Newcastle University medical and biomedical degrees offered at NUMed Malaysia are principally to cater for the Malaysian market, applications from non-Malaysian citizens are welcomed.

However applicants from non-Malaysian citizens for entry to the NUMed Malaysia MBBS programme should read carefully the information provided at Career Path and Quality Assurance & Accreditation.
