Introduction

Uniquely, we guarantee our students the opportunity to study for part of their course in the UK, which means that getting a world class degree with UK study experience is more flexible, accessible and affordable than ever before.

University of Reading students from the UK are also given the chance to study at UoRM, enabling even greater international collaboration and enhancing the teaching and learning experience for all.

We offer a wide range of professional programmes at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level. Home to the internationally renowned, triple-accredited Henley Business School, our programmes include the prestigious Henley MBA.

Students will be taught by international academic staff – the best in their field – and have the same high-quality learning experience as in the UK. 93 per cent of the University of Reading’s students are employed or in further study within six months of graduation. UoRM offers an up-to-date and innovative approach to teaching, designed to ensure that students are well prepared to excel in their chosen careers.

Rich In Heritage, At The Forefront of World-Class Education

The University of Reading Malaysia EduCity campus will open its doors in 2015 with state-of-the-art facilities for the Asian region. However, the University dates back to the 1800s, steeped in a rich, cultural and celebrated heritage.

The University of Reading began its journey as an extension of what is arguably the world’s most famous university: Oxford. Since that small beginning in what was then a small town in Berkshire, the University has progressed to become a major force, producing some of the world’s finest educational curriculum, faculty, graduates and research.
