Ranking of the UK Branch Campuses in Malaysia: Guardian University Guide 2023

Currently in Malaysia there are 10 foreign branch campuses that come from Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland and China. Some of these universities offer Foundation and degree programmes identical in structure and content to those from the main campuses. In addition, students have the option to complete the final part of the degree at the main campus as well as possible student exchange.

Studying at a foreign branch campus in Malaysia is good value for money where you can pay up to 40% of tuition fees and living costs, and you will still get the same qualification and quality. UK universities are particularly popular amongst Malaysians and getting a top ranked UK degree is prestigious setting graduates apart from the rest. There are 4 UK branch campuses in Malaysia and I have ranked them in order of the rankings obtained from the Guardian University Guide 2023.

One of the main reasons for Malaysian students wanting to study at the Foreign Branch University Campuses is their top rankings in the world and in their respective countries. These rankings indicate the high standards maintained by these universities. The UK Foreign Branch University Campuses provide a high quality of education with a rigorous undergraduate programme that will help you to develop excellent skills and gain in-depth knowledge for a successful career.

The tuition fees at the Foreign Branch University Campuses are much higher compared to the local Malaysian private universities. Entry requirements are generally higher as well. Therefore, you will need to take these factors into consideration when applying.

Unlike other league tables, the Guardian rankings focus on the things students care about, such as good teaching and job prospects, rather than basing them on academic research. They rank universities through nine different scores, which form a total out of 100.

These include what students say about their teaching, feedback and the course itself in the annual National Student Survey. This year the Guardian University Guide combined 2021 and 2022 to reflect how universities responded to the pandemic.

They also look at how big class sizes are through the student-to-staff ratio and how much universities spend on teaching per student, as well as students’ A-level grades and whether their academic performance improves at university (the value-added score), and how likely they are to continue with their course.
