The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus (UNMC) opened in September 2000 to become the first campus of a British University, the University of Nottingham, in Malaysia and one of the first anywhere in the world - earning the distinction of the Queen's Award for Enterprise 2001 and the Queen's Award for Industry (International Trade) 2006.
In September 2005, the Malaysia Campus moved to its new purpose-built campus at Semenyih, 30km south of Kuala Lumpur city centre.A picturesque location spanning 125 acres and overlooking green hills, the campus was designed to mirror the attributes of University Park in the UK. As a self-contained and self-sufficient neighbourhood village within a garden environment, it is now home to more than 5,000 students.
The Malaysia Campus confers exactly the same degrees as those in the UK and all courses are taught in English.

- residential accommodation
- a purpose-built sports centre and swimming pool
- a student association complex
