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 southern Johor, just minutes from Singapore. Pur 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 the top university in the UK for mechanical engineering and electronics and electrical engineering* and have established a branch campus within the EduCity development in Iskandar Malaysia to enable more students to experience our world-class education.
We have had the privilege of educating students from Malaysia for over 50 years and continue to welcome new undergraduate and postgraduate students to Southampton each year. We are fortunate to enjoy good links with Malaysia that span many disciplines and levels of education and research. We have excellent links with research universities including the University of Malaya. We also enjoy strong relationships with government schools, international schools and many colleges and university colleges.
We invite you to join our premier undergraduate Master of Mechanical Engineering or Master of Electrical and Electronic Engineering programmes and take the opportunity to study using some of the latest research facilities and equipment in the world, where you can put the theory you learn into practice and deliver real results.
Our split campus (UK and Malaysia) degree offers the chance to gain a unique ‘Southampton’ education experience 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 yet spend part of the time nearer to home. 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 and our mechanical engineering programme has been approved by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency and the Board of Engineers 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.
