University of Nottingham Malaysia
School of Environmental and Geographical Sciences


Welcome to the School of Environmental and Geographical Sciences (EGS). We provide a
world-class education within a researchintensive environment. Members of academic staff in the School are leading international researchers in their chosen fields, which include tropical ecology and conservation, various applications in spatial science, agroforestry and atmospheric science.

Our research-led teaching uses innovative techniques to equip students with the specific expertise necessary for a successful environmental career, along with the transferable skills needed for independent and lifelong learning. We provide a truly international university experience. Through our research and teaching, we engage with a range of environmental organisations and government agencies in Malaysia and across south-east Asia, as well as in Europe and Australia; we also have active teaching and research links with our campuses in the UK and China. Fieldwork is central to much of what we do, and we offer residential field courses to tropical islands and rainforests where we study terrestrial, marine and freshwater ecosystems. 

As part of its strategic plan, the School aims:
  • To become a leading centre for the creation and dissemination of environmental knowledge in Southeast Asia 
  • To play a leading role in sustainable natural resource management in Southeast Asia 
  • To maximise opportunities for international exchange, for the benefit of both our students and our staff 
  • To be inclusive, ensuring equality and diversity across all of our activities
- Prof. Christopher Gibbins, Head of The School of Environmental and Geographical Sciences
