The University of Nottingham Malaysia
The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus opened in September 2000. It was the first ever branch campus of a British University established outside the UK – earning the distinction of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2001 and the Queen’s Award for Industry (International Trade) 2006.
In September 2005, the Malaysia Campus moved to its new purpose-built campus at Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur city centre. Occupying a scenic position overlooking green hills on a 101-acre site, and designed to mirror the attributes of University Park in the UK, the campus is a self-contained and self-sufficient neighbourhood village in a garden environment with over 4500 students. 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 students’ association complex
Transport is available from the campus to the nearest bus and rail stations providing easy access to Kuala Lumpur and the surrounding region
