HOSTING its first physical graduation since the Covid-19 pandemic, 250 graduates from University of Reading Malaysia (UORM) celebrated their success with loved ones at Fraser Place, Puteri Harbour in Johor Baru recently.

The international branch campus of the University of Reading UK saw graduates from the Henley Business School, School of the Built Environment, School of Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences and the School of Law receiving their degrees, which are identical to those awarded on the UK campus.

Moreover, some 40 prizes were awarded to students who had performed well during their studies, many of which were generously sponsored by the university’s industry partners.

A special graduation in particular for the School of Law as it graduated its inaugural batch of law students. With personalised learning experience, small class teaching and emphasis on agile problem-solving skills, the School of Law has been touted to be a significant draw for students.

University of Reading pro-vice-chancellor (International) Paul Inman presided over the ceremony, which was also attended by a delegation from the University’s UK campus including Law School head Prof James Devenney and Psychology and Clinical Language Sciences head Prof Carmel Houston-Price.

Excellent employability

UORM boast an excellent employability record, which has also proved to be a big pull factor for students choosing to study at the university.

For instance, 100% of graduates from the Henley-ICAEW Accounting and Finance programme – which is run in collaboration with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), received job offers even before graduation.

Meanwhile, two-thirds of graduates from the Real Estate programme also received job offers before graduation.

“We have excellent graduate employability because we have a very focused portfolio of programmes in professional disciplines and we develop our students through small-class teaching and personalised learning,” said provost Prof Wing Lam.

“We have a highly-qualified and experienced academic team who, because of our low student to staff ratio, are able to support our students and help them get the most out of university.”

Study in Malaysia, the UK or both

Aside from its steller academics and employability rate, the university offers flexibility when it comes to which campus students want to study.

Students are offered the option to experience both of the university’s campuses in Malaysia and the UK, which is a big draw for students.

When in Malaysia, students can enjoy the state-of-the-art campus in EduCity Iskandar, which first opened its doors in 2015.

Should students opt to also experience studying abroad, they can enjoy the Reading UK campus, which was ranked number one for best campus and facilities by StudentCrowd in 2022 and has won the Green Flag award 12 times in a row, making it one of the UK’s best green spaces.

What’s more, Reading is only a short 30-minutes by train from London.
