RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC)

RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus (RUMC) started its journey as Malaysia’s first accredited private medical institution in 1996. Then known as Penang Medical College (PMC), RUMC was initially formed to fulfil the need of having a medical institution in the northern region. It was established by two leading universities in Ireland – Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and University College Dublin (UCD).

RUMC received the University status from the Malaysian Ministry of Education (MOE) in 2018 and is now known as a Foreign University Branch Campus – one of the highest levels for a foreign-owned institution in Malaysia. RUMC remains as the only Irish Foreign Branch Campus in the region.
