10 year celebration for NUMed

10 year celebration for NUMed Malaysia

Published on: 20 September 2019

Students, staff and alumni are coming together to celebrate a decade of teaching at our international campus, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed).

The purpose-built site in the South of Malaysia provides high quality medical and biomedical education.

In the last 10 years, a total of 484 students have graduated from the programmes of Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences.

Provost and CEO of NUMed, Professor Chris Baldwin said: “We felt that we could develop an oasis of excellence in South Malaysia where both staff and students would engage in the very best of Medical and Biomedical Education.

“I knew that it would take time and effort to realise that vision but looking at where we are today, as we celebrate the 10 year anniversary of NUMed we can all be very proud of what we have achieved. I am very grateful to all of the many helping hands that have shaped our past and our present and to all who will help us to develop further in the future. NUMed is indeed very fortunate to have built such an amazing community of people over the years who have helped us to reach this momentous occasion.”

Flourishing campus

Professor Chris Day, Vice-Chancellor and President of Newcastle University said: “A decade ago we decided to establish an international campus that would replicate the essence of Newcastle University and uphold our quest for continued excellence.

“I am honoured to have been involved from the start – from the conception to the realisation of a fully-fledged international campus. It gives me great joy today to mark just how far we have come.

“We come together today to celebrate what has been achieved thanks to the contribution of staff, students and alumni of NUMed. Ten years down the road and the campus continues to flourish. Today, it has established a solid reputation of its own, offering high quality UK medical degrees in Malaysia, and our graduates are globally aware while being regionally based. The training they receive prepares them for careers that will underpin the health and welfare of society, for the benefit of the country and the greater Asian region.”

Marking the day on Saturday with an official ceremony as well as traditional performances, there will also be a native tree planting.

We offer two undergraduate programmes; Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and BSc (Hons.) Biomedical Sciences and a pre-university programme, Foundation in Biological and Biomedical Sciences. They have been approved by the Malaysian Qualifications agency, and NUMed Malaysia is registered as a Private Institute of Higher Learning by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia.

Additionally, a range of postgraduate programmes are offered from Newcastle University, UK via e-learning with some optional face-to-face teaching in Malaysia.

A ceremony featuring a lion dance and traditional music will be showcased on Tuesday 24th September will be held at Newcastle University, UK to mark the occasion.
