The University of Nottingham Malaysia

The University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) opened in September 2000 and became the first British university to set up a campus both outside of the UK and in Malaysia. In September 2005, the Malaysia Campus moved to its own purpose-built site in Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur. Designed to reflect the University Park Campus in Nottingham, it is a self-contained, vibrant village situated on an attractive and landscaped 48-hectare site.

Vibrant Student Body

The campus has about 4,500 students and around 700 teaching and administrative staff from 74 countries. This creates a stimulating and enriching environment for learning and growth. Students can be part of many student-led events and activities thanks to over 90 clubs and societies covering a wide range of interests.
