The University of Reading Malaysia is a wholly-owned International branch campus of the University of Reading, one of the UK’s leading universities with a distinguished global reputation for teaching and research.

The University of Reading is recognised for its excellence in teaching and research. The university is ranked 75 in the world for international outlook (THE 2020). 2016 marked the University’s 90th anniversary and we have over 150 years of history, with origins as a University of Oxford extension college.

The University received a license to establish an international branch campus in 2013 and opened the doors to its campus in Educity in September 2015. The University provides students with an English-speaking international environment that adopts the same high-quality teaching and learning approach used at our UK campus. Some of the University’s most highly established schools are represented on the Malaysia campus including Henley Business School, School of the Built Environment, School of Law, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences. We focus on the development of holistic skills to nurture graduates who are confident in both their academic skills and soft skills.

The programmes offered on the Malaysia campus mirror those on the UK campus and follow the same quality standards in terms of curriculum, assessment and teaching delivery. All our programmes are accredited by the QAA in the UK and the MQA. Students receive the same identical University of Reading degree.

Our portfolio of programmes are designed to provide students with a head start in their careers and are aligned with professional disciplines that provide excellent employment outcomes. Many of our programmes further benefit from recognition by relevant professional and industry bodies.

Our faculty are highly qualified and experienced. Approximately 75% of the faculty who teach on our undergraduate programmes are PhD holders.

Studying at the Malaysia campus is more affordable compared with studying on the UK campus. We estimate that the total overall cost of studying at the Malaysia campus is about 40% of the cost of studying at our UK campus.

We provide students with an opportunity to spend part of their studies on our UK campus, subject to our mobility policy.

All students are assigned an academic tutor to help them get the most out of their education.
