Malaysia Campus 15th anniversary – this week’s highlights

August 28th, 2015

To celebrate our 15-year anniversary as the first UK university to establish an overseas campus in Malaysia, we’ve asked staff and students who’ve spent time there for their memories.

This week’s highlights:

Tea-drinking, footy and punk music are familiar British cultural references….but did you know they are also woven into the fabric of Malaysian society? Find out more in the first of three blog posts exploring some of the long-standing, and sometimes surprising, connections between Britain and Malaysia.

If you ever pondered how many trees are on Semenyih campus, the answer is 2242!  Fourth-year engineering student, Pei Sze Teh spent the entire summer counting trees at UNMC for an internship to map the current flora and fauna. Her research will support plans to eventually replace the aging oil palm trees at the former plantation, restoring more indigenous biodiversity. Read about her experiences in the latest Sustainable Nottingham blog post.

More facts and milestones about the campus’ early days, as we celebrate its 15th anniversary, are published on Twitter.

If you have a story to tell on your experiences at UNMC, please contact, and you will be put into a prize draw for travel vouchers worth £200.

Follow the celebration campaign on Twitter #UNMC15.
