Broadening your horizons
The University of Southampton is one of the founder members of the UK’s esteemed Russell Group of leading universities. We have an excellent track record of teaching engineering in a research-led environment and offer an outstanding student experience.
Our Malaysia Campus
We were invited by the Ministry of Higher Education to establish a branch campus for engineering within the EduCity@Iskandar development in Iskandar, Malaysia. Iskandar is the nation’s economic zone located in Johor, just minutes from Singapore. Our Malaysia campus opened in October 2012 and offers premier undergraduate degrees in engineering. Teaching is split between our campuses in the UK and Malaysia.
Welcome from Professor John McBride, Chief Executive Officer, University of Southampton Malaysia Campus
The University of Southampton has a global reputation for academic excellence. We are one of the top three universities in the UK for engineering and have established a branch campus within the EduCity development in Iskandar Malaysia to enable more students to experience our world-class education.
The University has had the privilege of educating international students from all over the world for over 50 years at our Southampton campus. We are fortunate to enjoy long-standing links with Malaysia that span many disciplines and levels of education and research.
Our premier undergraduate MEng Mechanical Engineering programme allows you to study using some of the latest research facilities and equipment in the world and put the theory you learn into practice to deliver real results. This programme has been approved by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
Our prestigious MEng degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) has also been fully approved by the MQA and the programme will commence in September 2013.
Our split campus (UK and Malaysia) degree offers the chance to gain a unique 'Southampton' education in Malaysia combined with two years at a leading research-centred UK university, for around 60 per cent of the cost of the same degree in the UK only. You will graduate with a degree from an internationally recognised university and experience higher education in the UK. The programmes of study are, as far as possible, the same as those of our UK-based provision, and lead to the award of the same degrees.
University of Southampton Malaysia is registered as a Private Institute of Higher Learning by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia.
We invite you to study at the University of Southampton and take your place at the cutting edge, among some of the most talented students and academics from around the world.
