Student reviews


University of Nottingham Malaysia has continuously encouraged me to push beyond my boundaries and be my very best. I applied to learn Civil Engineering but ended up learning much more. As a founding President of the Paintball Club, I have enhanced my management skills along with many other soft skills that aren't course based.

Opportunities to develop my skills and myself to be more independent are important and in UNM these opportunities are abundant. As a student, my education has not been only theoretical but also practical with onsite visits and practical courseworks, this made my education more comprehensive and helps with preparing me to face the industry with confidence and knowledge.

Studying abroad in UNM is a decision I will never regret. I got exposure to various cultures and made friends from all over the globe. Let alone the great education and the eventful student life, the greenery and the campus landscape are so peaceful.

I chose Nottingham Malaysia due to the uniqueness of my course, BSc in Applied Psychology and Management. It blends between the psychology and management aspects which are deemed as an important combination for today's world.

Not limited to the excellent academic experience I enjoyed, Nottingham offered me a variety of extracurricular activities that cater to all interests. I mostly enjoyed organizing events, working with people and polishing my personal skills. My experience has broadened my views and encouraged me to keep on improving myself.

My years in Nottingham are a collection of memories, experiences, and people I would never find somewhere else. I appreciate this experience and it has been very rewarding.
