Education collaboration - Malaysia & the UK

Monday, June 9, 2008

Whilst on a Ministerial visit to Malaysia Meg met some leading educationalists in the country. She heard of the growing demand for UK expertise in education, and opportunities for increasing this substantial business - already some 250 million per annum - in higher, secondary and vocational training.


Plans include:

  • Nottingham University plans to double to 6,000 the number of students at its Malaysia campus within 3 years,
  • Newcastle University is well advanced in its plans to open a new Medical School in Johore (the Iskandar Development Region), and
  • other British universities, including Southampton, Hull and Royal Holloway, are looking to follow suit, either in Johore or Kuala Lumpur.  

The four recently designated Malaysian "research universities" are increasing links with the UK. They warmly welcomed the recently announced 1million+ funding, and are looking to send large numbers of their staff to the UK for PhD training.


The University of Malaya is delighted with its collaboration with Queen’s University Belfast, Petronas and BP in green chemistry/ionic liquids. It is also exploring other areas of research collaboration with British institutions, including on sustainable development/climate change.


Tunku Abdul Rahman College already has close links with Sheffield Hallam University and Liverpool John Moores University. Sunway University College is very pleased with their joint degree programmes with Lancaster University and Manchester Business School.
