Newcastle University UK, has established an international branch campus, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) in Johor, Malaysia to provide its undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MB BS) and the Biomedical Sciences (BSc), and opportunities for postgraduate study.

The operating company of the branch campus, (NUMed Malaysia Sdn Bhd) is wholly owned by Newcastle University and is registered in Malaysia under Company No: 792091-W with registered office at Suite 1301
13th Floor, City Plaza, Jalan Tebrau, 80300 Johor Bahru, Johor Darul Takzim, Malaysia

The programmes of study are identical to those of Newcastle’s UK-based provision, and lead to the award of the same degrees, conferred by Newcastle University, UK. By choosing to study at NUMed Malaysia, students will obtain a reputable UK qualification, from an internationally recognized university, at a cost significantly less than that of studying for the same degrees in the UK.

The undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MB BS) degrees were launched in 2009, the Biomedical Sciences BSc Honours was launched in 2013 and our Foundation Certificate in Biological and Biomedical Sciences will be launched in 2016.

It is planned that a Foundation programme in Medicine and Science and our postgraduate provision will be offered from in the future.

Many of our programmes offer opportunities for periods of study in the UK.
