THE top five programmes which garner the most student interest at the University of Nottingham Malaysia (UNM) are business, engineering, computer science, education and psychology programmes.

Business school

Established in 2000, NUBS Malaysia has lecturers with over two decades of experience teaching business, economics, management and finance providing students with insights into Asian business growth and development during their studies.

The business school is in the top 1% of business schools in the world that holds the “triple crown” accreditation from AACSB International – the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

This accreditation is for business schools worldwide and is made up of the three most influential accrediting organisations – AACSB in the United States, AMBA in the UK and EQUIS in Europe.

Employers recognise this accolade as a mark of high standards, quality and reputation and it is applied to all three of the universities in the UK, China and Malaysia – making it the only business school in the UK to hold this accreditation.


Students gravitate towards UNM engineering courses because they provide them with comprehensive teaching and learning facilities. This includes labs with the latest machines, equipment, and technology for their lab sessions.

Moreover, UNM engineering students enjoy real-life experience through internships, which gives them the edge to secure employment in leading organisations.

Computer science

Keeping up with the latest technologies, this year UNM School of Computer Science deployed the NVIDIA DGX A100 system – touted to be among the first in Malaysia to do so.

This system provides high-performance computing (HPC) performance needed for artificial intelligence (AI) research, teaching and learning.

It is expected to produce higher throughput and increased efficiency for its research community of undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as academics.

Moreover, NVIDIA DGX A100 will be used to help further the AI capabilities of the university’s research community.


The UNM School of Education offers doctoral and master’s programmes aimed at experienced professionals in the fields of education, training and other related areas, counselling being one.

The programmes are drawn from UNM’s portfolio of approved courses from the University of Nottingham UK and are taught by experienced multinational staff.


The Psychology discipline provides an impressive range of highly desirable skills to employers, making psychology graduates some of the most employable, and least likely to be unemployed in any degree subject.

UNM foundation, BSc and postgraduate courses cover a range of exciting topics, including our perceptions, thoughts, feelings, and actions from infancy to old age; the dynamics of groups, organisations, and societies; brain structure and function; and the identification and understanding of mental & developmental disorders.

Stellar education

UNM is passionate about educating students who are well prepared to face the challenges of the knowledge-based economy in the 21st century.

The university is student-centred by having its students equally involved in decision-making, covering various aspects related to extra-curricular and learning activities.
