Malaysia Visit Website

Discover Malaysia on a 2 week programme at our University of Reading Malaysia campus (UoRM). You will experience life as a student in Malaysia attending lectures on Malaysia’s economy, history, geopolitics, language and culture. Day trips and excursions to areas of interest and importance will be included in the programme.

The University of Reading is offering scholarships to cover most of the associated costs, including tuition fees, flights, visas, accommodation, organised trips and excursions.

The campus is located in EduCity in Iskandar, Johor, Malaysia’s largest dedicated education hub situated on a 350-acre complex. EduCity is home to three British university branch campuses and a host of other educational institutions. The UoRM campus provides an exciting location with state-of-the-art facilities for you to study.

Johor Bahru has a wonderfully diverse culture and is also the fastest developing city in Malaysia. It is just a stone’s throw away from Singapore which can easily be visited on a day trip.
