Why University of Southampton Malaysia ?


Highly Recognized

The University of Southampton is among the world's top 100 higher education institutions. The QS World University Rankings 2021, places the University of Southampton as 90th among global universities, making the University of Southampton Malaysia the best UK university in Malaysia.


World-class Education

The programmes offered at the University of Southampton Malaysia are highly ranked globally and in the UK. We are ranked number 1 in the UK for our Electrical and Electronic Engineering programme (Guardian University Guide, 2021), number 4 for Mechanical Engineering (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide, 2020), number 7 for Aeronautics and Astronautics (The Complete University Guide, 2021) and number 11 for Computer Science (The Complete University Guide, 2021). Our Business, Management and Marketing programme is also ranked among the top 10 in the UK, according to Guardian University Guide, 2020. Our students can benefit from the best of both worlds by studying in Malaysia and in the UK. The University's Engineering programmes are split-campus programmes: Engineering students study 2 years in Malaysia and 2 years in the UK. Students from the other programmes can also apply to complete their degree in the UK whenever they want (1+2 and 2+1 delivery models are available)


Study in Malaysia and the UK at a Fraction of the Cost

Studying in the University of Southampton Malaysia helps to save up to 75% of the cost, compared with completing the programme fully in the UK. The Engineering split-campus programmes are 40% more affordable. Our Engineering students pay their 1st and 2nd year studies in Malaysia Ringgit (MYR) and enjoy a 20% discount when they transition to the UK to complete their 3rd and 4th years. Students on the Business programmes in the Malaysia campus will save up to 60% of the cost of our UK-based degree, if they choose to complete the programme fully in Malaysia.
