Get a prestigious UK university experience in Malaysia after SPM

The University of Reading’s state-of-the-art branch campus in EduCity.

THE University of Reading is an ideal choice for students receiving their SPM results.

The university is renowned for its high-quality teaching, research and graduate employability. It is also consistently ranked in the Top 100 in the world for International Outlook by Times Higher Education (2022).

International branch campus in Malaysia

Fortunately, students won’t have to travel all the way to the UK, nor incur the huge financial expense of an overseas education to study at the university.

This is because students can opt to study at the institution’s international branch campus in Malaysia with state-of-the-art facilities located at EduCity, Iskandar Puteri in Johor Baru.

Students studying at the branch campus enjoy the best of both worlds, with the same prestigious University of Reading degree delivered to the same high-quality academic standards – but at a significantly more affordable cost.

The campus offers a selection of the university’s degree courses in professional disciplines, which provide students with excellent career opportunities.

This includes courses such as Accounting and Finance, Finance and Business Management, Psychology, Law, Management and Business, Quantity Surveying and Real Estate.
