Until recently, Newcastle University UK has branched out an international branch campus in Johor, Malaysia that offers students undergraduate degrees in the fields of Medicine (MBBS) and Biomedical Sciences (BSc), and opportunities to further their studies in several of their postgraduate studies.
What sets it as unique is that the course programs that are available in the Malaysian’s branch are that their syllabus and learning structure is similar to those of Newcastle’s UK-based provision. It is also interesting to note how some of these degrees have received awards of recognition. From this incentive, students can obtain reputable UK qualifications by undergoing their studies in this institution with an additional bonus advantage of having to spend less on fees as compared to studying abroad in the UK.
NUMed Malaysia is catered to meet the requirements of the locals in Malaysia, however, international students are encouraged to further their studies in this branch as well.

Newcastle University established an international branch campus, Newcastle University Medicine Malaysia (NUMed) in Johor, Malaysia in 2011. The campus provides undergraduate degrees in Medicine (MBBS) and Biomedical Sciences (BSc), as well as opportunities for foundation and postgraduate study.
The programmes of study are identical to Newcastle’s UK-based provision and lead to the award of the same degrees, conferred by Newcastle University, UK. By choosing to study at NUMed Malaysia, students will obtain a reputable UK qualification, from an internationally recognized university, at a cost significantly less than that of studying for the same degrees in the UK.
The undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree was launched in 2009, the BSc (Hons) Biomedical Sciences was launched in 2013 and our Foundation in Biological and Biomedical Sciences was launched in 2016. The MBBS and BSc programs offer opportunities for periods of study in the UK.
The operating company of the branch campus, (NUMed Malaysia Sdn Bhd) is wholly owned by Newcastle University and is registered in Malaysia at Suite 1301, 13th Floor, City Plaza, Jalan Tebrau, 80300 Johor Bahru, Johor Darul Takzim, Malaysia.
