University of Reading Malaysia


The University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) offers students the best of both worlds: the opportunity to study for a UK degree from the state-of-the-art campus in EduCity in Iskandar Puteri, Johor, Malaysia.

UoRM is the first overseas campus of the University of Reading in the UK, which is ranked in the top 200 universities globally (according to Times Higher Education and QS World University Rankings) and has a long-established reputation for the quality of its teaching and research.

Uniquely, our students are given the opportunity to choose to study part of their course in the UK, which means that getting a world class degree with UK study experience is more flexible, accessible and affordable than ever before.

University of Reading students from the UK are also given the chance to study at UoRM, enabling even greater international collaboration and enhancing the teaching and learning experience for all.

We offer a wide range of professional programmes at foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate level. Home to the internationally renowned, triple-accredited Henley Business School (the only triple-accredited business school in Malaysia), our programmes include the prestigious Henley MBA.

Students will be taught by international academic staff – the best in their field – and have the same high-quality learning experience as in the UK. 94 percent of the University of Reading’s students are employed or in further study within six months of graduation. UoRM offers an up-to-date and innovative approach to teaching, designed to ensure that students are well prepared to excel in their chosen careers.


Our state-of-the-art campus at EduCity in Iskandar Puteri is an architecturally stunning campus environment, perfect for studying and networking.

Located just 40 minutes away from Singapore International Airport and only 20 minutes from Senai International Airport in Johor, the campus covers an area of 27,000 square meters and is an integrated, self-contained space that combines flexible teaching, research and learning spaces with inspiring social spaces. The design for the campus made the finals in the World Architecture Festival Awards in 2013.

The Heartspace - the central parkland space between the two buildings - came from the idea to emulate the open, natural space of the University of Reading's Whiteknights campus in the UK, but to translate this for a tropical setting. The Heartspace is now a plant-filled space for students to relax and socialise. There is also an amphitheatre for talks, live music and events.

Studying abroad at the UK campus is an exciting opportunity to enhance your future career options, gaining subject knowledge, skills and experiences that will impress future employers and help you stand out from the crowd.
