University of Nottingham, Malaysia


The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) opened in September 2000 to become the first campus of a British University in Malaysia and one of the first anywhere in the world – earning the distinction of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2001 and the Queen’s Award for Industry (International Trade) 2006. In 2015, UNMC celebrated its 15th year anniversary.

A diverse and vibrant community where faculty, staff and students from around the world collaborate in an environment that fosters world-class teaching and research, the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) alongside with UK and China campuses, are proud to consider ourselves a truly international university.    

In September 2005, the Malaysia Campus moved to its new purpose-built campus at Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur city centre.

A picturesque location spanning across 125 acres and overlooking green hills, the campus was designed to mirror the attributes of University Park in the UK. As a self-contained and self-sufficient neighbourhood village within a garden environment, it is now home to more than 4500 students.

The Malaysia Campus confers exactly the same degrees as those in the UK and all courses are taught in English.

It combines a high-quality living environment with state-of-the-art learning, teaching and research facilities. Other campus amenities include:

  • residential accommodation
  • a purpose-built sports centre and swimming pool
  • a student association complex
  • shops
  • library

Students wishing to go to Kuala Lumpur or the surrounding areas can do so by means of bus or rail, accessible via complimentary shuttle service departing from campus.
