Search for The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) online and you would get a barrage of information on the courses offered, fun facts about the environment the university is situated at, the famous alumni, the first class facilities and much more. As such, this post will also join in on the topic of why you should come join us and receive an education at The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. However, unlike the majority of published materials out there (online or offline) that mentions facts that you are probably already aware off. The post will mention a short list of five reasons why you should study here through the perspective of an existing student.
1 The environment
For those of you who are not aware, or at the very least not aware yet. The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus is situated in Semenyih, not Semenyih city centre but the outskirts of Semenyih. Less than a few kilometres away from Broga Hill. In not so flattering terms or in the words of the current students, the University is situated at the edge of civilisation. However, that might not be a bad thing. On the contrary, UNMC is in a very strategic location, it is about a thirty-minute drive away from the nearest shopping mall and it is about a 45-minute drive to Kuala Lumpur. By staying in Semenyih, students with their own transportation will be able to avoid the crippling traffic jams that Kuala Lumpur seem to be all too eager to offer, while still being able to visit the city centre from time to time without having to drive for long distances. Basically, students at UNMC will be able to enjoy the peace and quiet Semenyih has to offer while still have the option to travel to the city centre if they wish.
2 The University provided transportation
Speaking of travelling to the city centre, there might be a few of you who are wondering “What if I don’t have personal transportation? will I spend my weekends exploring the jungle next to the University for the next three to five academic years?”. Fret not, The University of Nottingham Malaysia provides shuttle bus services throughout the week (excluding public holidays) that will take its passengers to the Kajang KTM Station. From there, students are able to travel to other major shopping malls in Selangor (Mid Valley Megamall, The Mines, KLCC).
3 Affordable Accommodation
Unlike the accommodation in central KL and its surrounding areas, the on-campus accommodation at The University of Nottingham Malaysia is relatively affordable, with the base accommodation fees starting around RM450. The 24/7 security and various facilities that include self-service laundry facilities, 24/7 convenience stores, student hubs and covered walkways to all major buildings from your accommodation ensure that your on-campus experience is as pleasant as it can be. However, if you’ve decided not to stay on-campus, there are many other areas that provide accommodation for our students as well, areas like Taman Tasik Semenyih (TTS), Broga new village, University Village (UV) and many others. However, it is important to keep in mind that most of these areas require students to have their own transportation.
4 Global education
A global university, the word global is often used quite freely, it’s hard to not spot the word global on any other universities website or their promotional material, it seems like every university has the word global as their tagline and those who don’t, want it. The University of Nottingham, with its universities located in the United Kingdom, China and Malaysia, is truly a global university. Students who wish to transfer to either campus during their education in any campuses may do so provided they meet the academic qualifications. Academic staff are often transferring in between each campus that contributes to the dissemination of knowledge UNMC can be proud of, so fret not if you don’t plan to transfer to the other campuses as you will still receive the global education that you’ve invested your time and finances in.
5 Ranked Top 100 university in the world
If the reasonably priced accommodation, the truly global experience, and the strategic location for both tranquillity of Semenyih and the bustling city of Kuala Lumpur have not convinced you on why you should study at The University of Nottingham Malaysia, then let’s add another reason on why you should. The University of Nottingham (UK, China, Malaysia) is ranked at the top 100 in the world and top 20 in the United Kingdom. At UNMC, we employ over 40 full-time academic staff from various countries and have about 5000 students, which contributes to a ratio of one academic staff to 17.5 students at UNMC, which means it is never too difficult for a student to get academic support.
So come and join us at The University of Nottingham Malaysia, we have various open and info days throughout the year where staff and academics will be more than willing to answer any questions that you may have. You can find out more info on upcoming open or info days on our University’s website.
