Student reviews


Nottingham Malaysia provides modules that are really needed by the students for their future work and job. For example, there are not many universities which offer the opportunity to learn Auto CAD in year 1. However, the university teaches it from the first year so that the students have the chance to be familiar with this computer processing program.

Moreover, the lecturers of UNMC know how to communicate with the students. They encourage the students to do their best and maintain regular communication with them to enhance the learning quality. Lecturers respond promptly to students’ questions and they are interested in students’ opinions about the lecture topic and how it was conducted.

Activity week is a valuable experience that I really enjoy. In this week, group members work together to produce the best result. They plan, study, calculate, process and present about the topics given to them. Students are prepared for work place as professional engineers.

The life in the university is fantastic and is better than what I expected. For example, the library is well managed. It has enough computers for students and searching the books. Also, there are movie rooms, game rooms, big cafeteria and a sports complex. I really enjoy the campus environment and I strongly recommend my friends and others to study at this university.

In 2018 April, I joined University of Nottingham Malaysia as Foundation student in Business school and currently I am taking Business Economics and Management as my major of undergraduate. My first impression of this university is that University of Nottingham has diverse culture and good education system.

As we know, there are a lot of international students studying here and each of them have different thought towards lifestyle and studies. I have enjoyed interacting with not just them but even Malaysian friend on and off campus.

In terms of education, there is an advantage which I can have British education while staying at Malaysia. Also, UNM provides tutor service which helps me a lot regarding study.

For those reasons, I definitely recommend others to study in UNM and get the precious experience here
