History

The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus, a campus of The University of Nottingham UK was established in 2000. In the year 2000, Nottingham made history by becoming the first British university to open a fully operational overseas branch campus.

Sir Colin Campbell, the Vice Chancellor then said that the opening of the university culminates the 50 years of educational links between Malaysia and the UK. Eleven years on, the University is proudly celebration international educational and research excellence at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus.

The university first opened its doors in Kuala Lumpur 10 years ago with just 300 students and operating temporarily from the previous National Arts Gallery building. The university at the pioneering stage offered courses in management and business, electrical and electronic engineering, computer science and information technology. The current student population in Malaysia has grown to a community of 4,000 students from 72 countries and based at the garden campus in Semenyih.

In 1988 when the Vice-Chancellor at that time, Sir Colin Campbell, began discussions to turn the vision of an overseas campus into a reality, Asia was a natural choice. Negotiations began with the Malaysian authorities and relationships were built and strengthened over a ten year period, until in 1998, a partnership with the University, Boustead Holdings Berhad and YTL Corporation Berhad was formally announced.
