WHAT do you want to be when you grow up?
Perhaps, this is a question you often encounter during childhood.
Fast forward to today, you are ready to fly the nest to pursue your ambition.
However, choosing a university is one of the biggest challenges and it can be overwhelming if you are not sure how to go about it.
To ease your decision-making, take into consideration the key factors that you would be comfortable with while you study such as distance from home, location of the institution, course content, the institution’s community and facilities, and most importantly, the cost and credibility of the institution.
If a career in medicine or biomedical sciences is what you are working towards, one place to develop your aspirations is Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) in EduCity, Johor Baru, which has a track record of almost two centuries of academic excellence.
Having marked its 10th year in Malaysia in 2019, this international branch campus of NUMed draws on the legacy of Newcastle University in the UK, established in 1834 as
a medical school, and has always been at the forefront of research and teaching, with its reputation externally confirmed as of the highest international quality.
The establishment of NUMed here in Malaysia means that students in Malaysia and the region will now have the advantage of getting the best of both worlds – quality UK medical education in Malaysia at an affordable price.
The programmes of study lead to the award of the same degrees as those who go to the parent campus in the UK.
Additionally, NUMed’s curriculum is also designed to complement curiosity-driven self-study and help students develop learning habits that are beneficial in life-long learning.
The essential factor for Newcastle University’s position as a world-leading medical education provider is the quality of the educational experience it offers.
On top of excellent facilities and vibrant student life, NUMed curates quality-related activities which are inextricably linked to contributing to the overall experience – well-designed innovative programmes are delivered to students by highly motivated and well-qualified academics from around the world, complemented by carefully considered student support strategies and a firm ethic of scholarship.
NUMed offers a pre-undergraduate programme – Foundation in Biological and Biomedical Sciences – and two undergraduate programmes: Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) and BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (BMS).
While all five years of the MBBS programme are delivered in Malaysia, students can have the opportunity to study in the UK during the fourth year. In addition, students may also have the opportunity of studying for an extra year in the UK for an intercalated research qualification at either Bachelor or Master level.
As for BMS, the degree programme has two parts – two academic years at NUMed which mirror the programme offered in the UK, and one academic year at the Newcastle campus with research-led teaching and an intensive research project in one of the highly regarded research institutes in Newcastle University Medical School in the UK.
NUMed also offers three highly interactive online postgraduate programmes from Newcastle University UK, delivered online via platforms such as Virtual Learning Environment and Blackboard with face-to-face workshops and short-term on-campus sessions available for selected programmes.
NUMed is currently accepting applications for the September intake for its Foundation
in Biological and Biomedical Sciences, BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences (BMS), and
Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) programmes.
