University of Nottingham Malaysia


Student reviews


Studying in UNM has been a fulfilling journey. As one of the most diversified universities in Malaysia, it provided me with a unique platform to explore various cultures from a different part of the world. I made friends from all over the world some of whom are likely to be lifelong friends.

Nottingham has fostered a strong relationship with various professional accounting bodies such as ICAEW and CPA Australia which gave me the advantage of getting exemptions for several papers. This is one of the major reasons I chose to join the university.

UNM offers several extra-curricular activities such as the Nottingham Advantage Award that have given me a more holistic university experience by improving my personal skills while also getting an award which is really amazing!

When people asked me where I was going to study and I replied University of Nottingham (UoN) Malaysia, their reactions were "Really, Malaysia?" or "Why not something like Canada, UK or USA?".

Although the tuition fees did come into consideration regarding my choice of university, I was substantially mesmerized by the beauty and tranquillity of the campus during a visit prior to the start of my studies. The natural environment with its trees, lake and ducks gave me the feeling that this would be a study-friendly setting. And I was not disappointed.

What I enjoyed the most is the fact that there is always something happening on campus; simply put, we do not have time to get bored. Activities ranging from sports and culture to baking and performing arts make our university experience a unique one.

Besides all this, education is placed at the forefront, with dedicated lecturers coming from all over the world and encouraging us to embrace the international nature of the community we live in.

To those who were questioning the relevance of my university choice, I am happy to have proven them wrong today.
