As a student at the University of Reading, you have the unique opportunity to Study Abroad for part of your degree at our University of Reading Malaysia campus (UoRM).

Depending on your degree, you can either study the same course as you will at Reading or you can apply to join the summer school.


The UoRM campus provides an exciting new location with state-of-the-art facilities for you to build upon your learning and experience. It offers an architecturally stunning environment designed to provide you with everything you need to make the most of your time at university.

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, providing opportunities for students to participate in inter-university activities and events.

Class sizes tend to be much smaller at UoRM which is something UoR students who previously studied abroad in Malaysia have particularly enjoyed. It is a very supportive learning environment where all of the lecturers will likely know you by name. There are excellent study spaces around campus as well as more social group areas.

UoRM has global links, so you will be able to collaborate with UoRM students and study alongside peers from other countries. As you are already a University of Reading student, applying to study abroad at our campus in Malaysia is easy and straightforward and adds a new dimension to your studies.

Students will be taught by international academic staff and have the same high-quality learning experience as in the UK. UoRM offers an up-to-date and innovative approach to teaching, designed to ensure that students are well prepared to excel in their chosen careers.

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. Johor Bahru has a local airport and is well connected to the rest of Malaysia and makes travelling to other neighbouring countries simple and convenient. Students often make the most of their time on weekends and holidays to explore other parts of Malaysia and further afield!
