Competitive fees

For engineering undergraduate students the cost of obtaining an engineering degree at our University of Southampton Malaysia Campus (two years in Malaysia and two years in the UK) is around 62 per cent* of the cost of obtaining the same degree in the UK only. You will also make additional savings on living expenses and accommodation by studying in Malaysia for the first two years rather than only in the UK. There are also generous scholarship opportunities.

*This figure is based on fees for Malaysian nationals and uses the exchange rate £1 = MYR 5.5 as of August 2020. The cost of studying the same degree in the UK (4 years in the UK) is £21,580 per annum.

Exciting opportunities at the University of Southampton
World-class opportunities

The thing I enjoyed most about studying at the University of Southampton was the fact that although I was half a globe away from home and experiencing a whole new environment, I've made a lot of friends with the local students and learned about their culture. At the same time, there were also many students who came from Malaysia. So, feeling quite at 'home' in a way.
