About

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) is a part of the University of Nottingham, UK system. UNMC opened in September of 2000, becoming the first campus of a British University in Malaysia. UNMC is home to more than 4500 students. UNMC confers exactly the same degrees as those in the UK and all courses are taught in English.
 
UNMC prides itself on being a diverse campus, filled with students from all over the world. Their International Exchange Program is designed for undergraduate students from selected partner universities, such as Texas A&M University. More information about being an incoming exchange student at UNMC can be found on the UNMC Incoming Exchange Student Page.

UNMC is located in Semenyih, Malaysia, a city 30 km (approx. 18.6 miles) south of Kuala Lumpur. The campus on Semenyih is a picturesque location spanning across 125 acres and overlooking green hills, designed to mirror the attributes of University Park as the University of Nottingham in the UK. In Semenyih, the most popular attractions are the beautiful landscape and various geologic formations, such as the Bukit Broga Hill.

 Students wishing to travel to Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, or surrounding areas can do so by bus or train, both of which are accessible via the complimentary shuttle service departing from campus. More information about travel to and from UNMC, and a campus map, can be found on the UNMC Campus Information Page. Kuala Lumpur is also the largest city in Malaysia, and full of amazing attractions, landmarks, and activities such as the Petronas Towers, Islamic Arts Museum, and the Kuala Lumpur Chinatown. More information about Kuala Lumpur can be found in this Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide.

Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I decided to study abroad as a means of diversifying my professional skills, not to mention my career opportunities. Studying abroad is one of the best ways to broaden one's awareness of the complex issues surrounding this new international/global era in which we live. It helped me perfect my language skills and gain knowledge of the political, social, and economic issues the world faces today. Furthermore, I believe the personal experiences I gained will help me to be a better leader to welcome challenges, and to challenge the status quo."
