As recent high school graduates consider the options available for their subsequent educational and professional pathways, many may be overwhelmed by the multitude of opportunities available to them. Choosing an institution with a clear path to your desired career will help you avoid decision fatigue. If you're looking for a university to help you get a solid start in the medical field, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) may be your best choice, and here’s why:

1.The Best of Both Worlds

With a strong presence in Malaysia for over a decade, the international branch campus draws on the legacy of Newcastle University in the UK, which was established in 1834 as a medical school, and has always been at the forefront of research and teaching, with its reputation externally confirmed to be of the highest international quality.

The establishment of NUMed here in Malaysia means that students within the country and the region have the advantage of getting the best of both worlds – quality UK medical education right at their doorstep at an affordable price. What’s more, the programmes of study lead to the award of the same degrees as those who go to the parent campus in the UK.

2.Globally Acclaimed Programmes

NUMed aspires to provide globally acclaimed medical education programmes that are responsive to the evolving needs of the Malaysian healthcare sector, and to retain national and international students of the highest academic excellence.  In accordance with this, the university cultivates an academic culture and environment that will support the recruitment and retention of high-calibre faculty and staff, as well as empowering them in the pursuit of scholarship, high-quality teaching, and the production of excellent graduates prepared for the global health economy of the 21st century. 

Additionally, NUMed’s curriculum is designed to complement independent self-study students and develop habits that are beneficial in lifelong learning. The university also provides students with ample research opportunities in a variety of areas throughout their studies.

3.A Multi-Focus Perspective to Student Life

On top of excellent facilities and a vibrant student life, NUMed has a compassionate academic community in which students may learn from experts and receive the credentials needed to improve their learning experience and academic success. Students can participate in a supportive, encouraging, and inspiring environment. Developing positive relationships with the community, such as with healthcare professionals and other employers, ensures that students have the knowledge, understanding, skills, competencies, and professional attitudes necessary for future professional practice. 

Besides, NUMed students can benefit from the plethora of clubs and organisations that are provided under the Student Association, which will undoubtedly allow them to discover their interest as well as engaging with a diverse community regionally and globally. 

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).
