Based on the latest UK higher education statistics administered by the International Graduate Insight Group, Sheffield Hallam University is the most popular UK University for Malaysian students, recruiting more than 1,200 Malaysian students for programmes of study in 2010/11 via the University’s strong partnership with several reputable universities and colleges in Malaysia, including the significant partnership between Sheffield Hallam University and Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC) in Malaysia (since 1999). Through this partnership, students who studied a relevant Advanced Diploma come to Sheffield Hallam to turn their qualification into an honours degree. Since the programme began, over 7,000 students have done so and the numbers continue to rise.


“It’s a great time for students from Malaysia to consider studying at the University, which is proven to have the teaching and the facilities to provide a great experience”, James Richardson, Director of International Development at Sheffield Hallam said in an article published on the University website.


Earlier this year, a second office is opened by Professor Cliff Allan, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Sheffield Hallam University and Dr. Tan Chik Heok, Principle of TAR College in order to support growing interests from students wanting to study abroad.


Approximately 1,000 TARC students have graduated from Sheffield Hallam University recently in various subjects, including engineering, business, building and quantity surveying and information technology. Furthermore, 80% of students have found employment upon graduation or shortly after.
