The University of Strathclyde also has a long history of welcoming students from Malaysia.
It currently has an active community of around 400 Malaysian students and welcomes more than 100 new students from Malaysia each year who come to study a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Strathclyde also works closely with a number of educational institutions in Malaysia.
The Strathclyde MBA in Malaysia
Strathclyde’s triple-accredited MBA ranks in the world’s top ten.
It’s delivered in 10 international centres worldwide including in Kuala Lumpur.
International Medical Centre & Strathclyde
Strathclyde works in collaboration with IMU to run the MPharm degree in Malaysia where students can study part of their course at Strathclyde.
Since the partnership was formed with IMU 20 years ago, the University has developed courses in biomedical sciences, forensic biology and psychology.
Strathclyde also has a very active alumni group.

Malaysian Students Society
Strathclyde also has a Malaysian Students Society.
It organises social events for the Malaysian community and holds an annual Malaysian Cultural Night featuring Malaysian food and colourful performances. The society also liaises with other Malaysian societies in the UK to participate in events such as the famous Nottingham Malaysian Games. Beyond the extra-curricular side of things, it also relays career events from Malaysian and Singaporean organisations such as TalentCorp and ContactSingapore.
You can get in contact with the society via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or find them on Facebook or Instagram.
