About University of Nottingham Malaysia

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus opened in 2000 and is the first British university campus branch established outside of the UK. The Malaysia Campus moved to a new built 125-acre campus in Semenyih. It opened in September 2005, and combines high-quality living environment with modern learning and teaching. The campus currently houses students from over 75 countries. 

The university is classified as 'excellent' by the Mayalsian Ministry of Higher Education. Except for that students of this campus must take additional courses in Malay Language and Asian Civilisation, the programmes offered are similar to those offered at Nottingham UK. This means a high quality qualification, because students are awarded a degree from The University of Nottingham. It represents a recognition from the government of Malaysia, that Nottingham is delivering degrees of the highest quality.
