Choosing the right place to study is an important decision, with many factors to consider. Southampton is placed in the top 100 of global universities in the world, and 187th amongst UK universities listed (QS World University Rankings 2019). Join us, a founder member of the Russell Group of research-intensive UK universities.

Our Malaysia Campus

We were invited by the Ministry of Higher Education to establish a branch campus for engineering within the EduCity development in Iskandar, Malaysia. Iskandar is the nation’s economic zone located in Johor, just minutes from Singapore. Our Malaysia Campus opened in October 2012 and offers premier undergraduate degrees in engineering. In 2016, our first group of Malaysia Campus students graduated with excellent results - they obtained 10 First Class and eight Upper Second Class MEng degrees.

The University of Southampton has a global reputation for academic excellence, and we have established a branch campus within the EduCity development in Iskandar Malaysia to enable more students to experience our world-class education.

The University has had the privilege of educating international students from all over the world for over 50 years at our Southampton campus. We are fortunate to enjoy long-standing links with Malaysia that span many disciplines and levels of education and research.

At Southampton we are number three for electrical and electronic engineering and in the top 5 for mechanical engineering, in the UK, according to The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2020. We are the premier university for aeronautics and astronautics, encompassing a broad range of disciplines in the field of aerospace, currently ranked number six in The Complete University Guide, 2020.

Our split campus (UK and Malaysia) degree programmes offer the chance to gain a unique ‘Southampton’ education for the first two years in Malaysia combined with the final two years at a world-class research-centred university in the UK. You will graduate with a degree from an internationally recognised university and gain a truly global education experience.

University of Southampton Malaysia’s premier undergraduate MEng Mechanical Engineering, MEng Aeronautics & Astronautics and MEng Electrical & Electronic Engineering programmes allow students to study using some of the latest research facilities and equipment in the world and put the theory they learn into practice to deliver real results. All programmes have been approved by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) and the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).

We invite you to study at the University of Southampton and take your place at the cutting edge, among some of the most talented students and academics from around the world.
