About University of Nottingham Malaysia
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus opened its doors to students in 2000 and become the first ever British university campus branch established outside of the UK. One of its key highlights are the programmes offered which are identical to those offered at Nottingham UK. This garners the interest and attention of both local and international students especially those who are convinced by the high quality and recognition associated with a UK qualification. The campus currently houses more than 4,500 students from over 75 countries and is a brewing pot of multi-cultural diversity and experience.
Programmes at the Malaysia Campus are taught in English and students are awarded a degree from The University of Nottingham irrespective of whether the degree was pursued in Malaysia or UK. The degrees are accredited by international professional bodies such as the Association of MBAs, General Pharmaceutical Council, UK and the UK Engineering Council which testifies that programmes offered are tested for quality. In May 2010, the Malaysia Campus was awarded Self-Accreditation status by the Malaysian Accreditation Authority. It is a significant step forward in the development of the campus, and represents an acknowledgement from the government of Malaysia that the Nottingham University is delivering degrees of the highest quality.
